We’re only two weeks in to the autumn, but if you’re already yearning for more sunshine, then we have the perfect solution for you – Kasbah Bab Ourika, Morocco.
Located only 40 minutes south of Marrakech Menara airport – itself just 2 hours 45 minutes away from London by private jet – this beautiful and indulgent hotel sits on the top of its own hill in the renowned Ourika Valley, with breathtaking views towards the Atlas mountains to the south and sweeping views over the lush green valley and national park to the north and east.
The hotel itself is a veritable sanctuary of peace and serenity. Set within the confines of beautiful landscaped gardens that are alive with the scent of wild trees and herbs, guests are able to choose between a number of individually decorated rooms or, if like us you really want to treat yourself, one of two romantic suites with their own private terrace and pool. Provided you’re able to tear yourself away from the views, allow us to also recommend an outdoor massage followed by an alfresco candle lit dinner – the food is wonderful.
For those in Europe looking for a burst of autumn sun, we think Marrakech provides a very practical alternative to other popular winter sun destinations. Flying by private jet to Dubai or Abu Dhabi, for instance, will entail a 5 or 6 hour flight, whereas flying by private jet to Marrakech from the UK, France or Belgium will typically take less than 3 – and you’ll still be able to enjoy average temperatures well into the high 20’s until late November.
So if you’re thinking of the perfect mini break for you or your family between now and Christmas, get in touch and ask us for a quote for a private jet to Marrakech.
