Morocco continues to thrill hotel-obsessed jetsetters with exciting new openings. The latest is the Sofitel Tamuda Bay Beach and Spa hotel, which will debut this spring in northern Morocco. As we reported last year, the stretch of coast 20 miles east of Tangiers is welcoming a new luxury complex called Tamuda Bay (a Ritz-Carlton Reserve has also been slated for this area). Set against the backdrop of the Rif mountains, the beaches around the town of M’diq are considered some of the prettiest on Morocco’s Mediterranean coast. There are golf courses nearby.
The Sofitel Tamuda Bay was designed by GM Architects as a blend of the contemporary French art de vivre and traditional Morocco culture. The interior spaces were designed to blend the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. Inside the 104 guest rooms (including nine suites), the palette of blues conjures the sea and sky, while the design aesthetic also pays homage to the 20th century Fauvist painters who were inspired by stays in Morocco.
Facilities include the So Spa, a heated swimming pool, the So Beach Lounge, and a number of F&B outlets. Additional accommodations include eight bungalows and five villas.
