On our last night in Morocco, we finally arrived in Casablanca! We made the most of this chance to chill at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca, only three months old, hoping to be rejuvenated by its dream-like location in front of the Atlantic and luxurious pool and spa facilities. But first, I went exploring the magnificent building. In the lobby, I discovered the most tempting display of savory snacks and sweet treats, the most delicious macaroons I have tried in my life! What a treat and the perfect ending to our incredible 11-day trip with Much Morocco.

Our room had a stunning view looking out over the palm and lantern-lined walkway leading to the pool, and we couldn’t help but jump onto the huge comfy bed immediately! Our en suite bathroom provided cosy bathrobes and a great range of toiletries. But the stand-out feature has to be the mirror transforming into an LED TV, greatly enjoyed from the deep marble bathtub!

The attention to detail and focus on guest satisfaction continues through to the dining facilities, with three restaurant options to choose from, each offer something different to cater all needs. All three extend outdoors to take advantage of the ocean-view with menus ranging from Mediterranean to Provencal to local Moroccan dishes.
While lounging by the pool during the day, guests needn’t even lift a finger with complimentary snacks and sorbets or ice tea available.
As our first time staying at a Four Seasons Hotel, we were so excited to experience the luxurious facilities and customer service that the Four Seasons chain is famous for. Having only been open for three months, the Casablanca resort has perfected their customer experience. I hope one day we can come back for a longer stay!
Four Seasons Casablanca is only a short drive from any of the White City’s landmarks and attractions, the most notable being Hassan Ii Mosque whose 210-metre tall Minaret (tallest in the world) can’t be missed. Africa’s largest shopping center, Morocco Mall, is reachable by the hotel’s private limo shuttle and finally, all visitors should enjoy a wander through the Art Deco District.
Year round, this ocean side location offers many reasons to visit, one being the many festivities such as the Salon du Cheval d’El Jadida (El Jadida Horse Show) during the Autumn season and SIEL (the International Book Fair of Casablanca) during Winter. Spring, however, is the most popular time, with a whole host of events: Jazz Blanca the annual Jazz festival, April’s Journées du Patrimoine (Casablanca Heritage days) in which many Heritage buildings are opened to the public, Festival Théâtre et Cultures (Theatre and Cultures Festival) and this May, the city will host the international Tennis tournament Grand Prix Hassan II.
Casablanca is ideally located to offer day trips to several other sights of Morocco. Firstly, Rabat, which is the political capital of Morocco and now also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Only 56 miles north, the city can be reached by train shuttle from the nearby train station which runs every 30 minutes, or just one hour by car. There are many remarkable sights to explore here including the Kasbah of the Udayas and the Roman site of the Chellah, while the Museum Mohammed VI of Modern and Contemporary Art displays temporary exhibitions from other renowned museums worldwide.
Another recommended day trip is the Portuguese Fortified City of El Jadida, another UNESCO site recognized for its blend of European and Moroccan culture which is also just one hour away from Casablanca.
