Le Medina Essaouira Hotel and Thalassa Sea & Spa MGallery by Sofitel is a beautifully presented, contemporary 5-star hotel in the Moroccan fishing town of Essaouira. Despite the modernity of the hotel, it is clear that the hotel remains fiercely proud of its locality and roots. This is most obvious in the hotel’s design and decor and in the hotel’s restaurants, where local fishermen provide fresh produce and menus are regionally inspired. The hotel is situated directly facing a magnificent beach on Essaouira’s coastline and offers guests a whole host of cultural and historical gems to discover in the city. Main hotel features include a private area on the sandy beach, outdoor pool, thalassotherapy spa and a golf-course nearby for enthusiasts. For those looking to explore more of Morocco and experience a twin-centre holiday in this magical country, Marrakech and Agadir are just over 2 ½ hours away.
