Marrakech Marathon 2011

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Under the patronage of King Mohammed VI, the 22nd running of the Marrakesh marathon, one of Morocco’s major sporting events with an expected entry of 5,000 competitors from around the world, especially Europe, takes place on 30th January 2011 in the ideal 20+ degree temperatures of the Moroccan winter.

One of the leading producers of world-class distance runners, Morocco is proud of its many champions and you’ll have the chance to see the best of the current elite squad if you join the crowds lining the picturesque course around the town.

Considered to be one of the fastest in the world, the flat circuit follows the ancient city walls, continuing along the elegant boulevards of the residential Hivernage and commercial Géliz districts en route to La Palmeraie, with its golf course, palm groves and smart villas, before returning to town.

Cookery Courses in Moroccan Cuisine

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Given the growing interest in the cuisine of other cultures outside Europe, we have added Cookery Courses to our range of services. Often conducted by the chef himself, with an interpreter if necessary, the courses aim to give an insight into the use of exotic spices in classic Moroccan recipes during preparation of a three-course meal which you prepare yourself and then enjoy for lunch. Each morning course (for between 2 and ten people maximum) lasts for about three hours and can be booked at the hotel itself after your arrival.
