It’s official: Banyan Tree has arrived in Africa. Hot on the heels of Sofitel, Banyan Tree has opened a luxurious resort in Morocco’s Tamouda Bay development, situated on the Mediterranean coast, a 45-minute drive from Tangier. The all-villa resort is surrounded by carefully landscaped gardens designed to reflect a sense of place; think fountains, reflecting pools, flower-filled courtyards.

A highlight is the signature Banyan Tree spa equipped with six deluxe treatment rooms, two Royal treatment rooms, hydro facilities, a yoga room and the Spa Gallery. There’s also a Kids Club, a library, conference rooms, and swimming pools. Sample Mediterranean fare at Tingitana restaurant, enjoy Thai flavors at the Saffron restaurant, or go for fresh grilled fish and seafood at the Azura Beach Club.
