Romantic Morocco

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
Morocco is a honeymoon revelation. Which other exotic country can you reach in well under four hours and be utterly transported to a land of high minarets, date palmeries, Bedouin desert camps, five-star riads, snow-capped mountains, colourful souks and ancient fortress towns by the beach? With an expert like Fleewinter to guide you, my only question is - can I tag along too?!

Morocco is our heartland and we’re passionate about it. We know the country inside out – from the most intimate riads to the best Atlantic coast haunts and mountain hideaways. Our expert and knowledgeable team will tailor-make the perfect honeymoon for you, whether it’s a mini-moon or two week multi-centre adventure.

  • Romantic riads
  • Luxury desert camps
  • Beach options

Exotic Marrakech is the beating heart of Morocco from its bustling souks to the assault on your senses that is the Place Jemaa al Fna. There is no shortage of fabulous places to stay. We’ve hand-picked a wide range of riads (traditional merchants’ houses within the ancient city walls, converted to atmospheric boutique hotels and guesthouses) to suit all budgets.

For something more tranquil but no less exotic, we also offer a range of superb rural hotels. All are located within easy reach of the pulsating city but are set in lush, peaceful gardens with beautiful pools and outstanding restaurants.

Set on the Atlantic coast and boasting year-round sunshine, Essaouira is as laid back as it is enchanting. Soak up the beach vibe and try your hand at surfing before watching the sun set and preparing for a delicious seafood dinner.

The Atlas Mountains can be visited on a day trip from Marrakech but are best appreciated during a longer stay with some trekking and exploring Berber villages. Stay in one of our selected Kasbahs or Lodges for a taste of authentic luxury – and check out this spectacular desert camp.

If you are looking for more inspiration, we have crafted some multi-centre trips such as the five-night Sea and Souks combo of Essaouira and Marrakech and the spectacular 12-night Grand Circle which takes you from Marrakech to Essaouira via the Atlas Mountains, Sahara desert and ancient villages.

We design honeymoons to suit all budgets from our keenly-priced Classic Honeymoon to the ultra-luxurious Marrakech & Coast option and all points in between.

Even if you’ve only got a few days, Morocco is so easy to get to – flights take under four hours from the UK.
