Royal Palm Marrakech Reviewed
ITC Luxury Travel Product & Marketing Manager Zoe Saunders describes her recent trip to the new Beachcomber property Royal Palm Marrakech; now within our luxury travel portfolio.
“When I was invited to travel to Marrakech in August I was slightly worried about the heat. But before I left the UK I was reliably informed by some friends who were local to Royal Palm Marrakech that it was cooler than normal. I was delighted to find that this was indeed the case with great temperatures to be outside complemented by low humidity.
Apart from the expectation of sweltering heat in the medina, my main concern before I left was an activity that had been planned…learning to play golf on Royal Palm Marrakech's 18-hole championship golf course!
Having only ever taken a couple of ‘swings’ in Mauritius, I was no expert. But having a French ex-pro teach me in Marrakech was amazing. Under his tuition I learnt how to hold the club and how to stand and I was able to hit the ball near the 150m mark within 30 minutes; a real achievement since I missed the ball completely on my first try! I also loved looking out over the trees and greens of the golf course; it was so picturesque.
Along with golf, this fantastic new Beachcomber property is great for those guests wanting spacious accommodation; with suites or private villas to choose from. Short-haul sunshine, a very cute and fully-equipped kids’ club (complete with life size toy sheep!), tennis, culture, amazing cuisine, fantastic scenery and of course Beachcomber’s signature service, certainly adds to the attraction of this property.
I cannot wait until the vast Clarins spa is complete at the end of this year as then this will certainly be a resort that ticks all the boxes.”
