Where to stay in Morocco

Riad Elegancia

We like Riad Elegancia, part of Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts, which sits at the centre of the red city’s buzzing medina. A quick walk from the vibrant Jemaa el-Fna, this charming 11-room boutique hotel is an intimate hideaway and a perfect base for exploring all of Morocco’s cultural sites. Foodies will enjoy the Moroccan cookery classes at La Maison Arabe’s cookery school, which is the riad’s sister property and is home to one of the city’s firs cookery schools.

A favourite in many bucket lists, Cape Town is a destination that will take your breath away at any time of year. January is the driest and warmest month of the year with plenty of sunshine to go around, so you can hang out in Boulders Beach or take the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway.
