Morocco for me conjures up images of Brideshead Revisited and flashbacks of Sebastian Flyte’s later days in his riad in Tangier, surrounded by lush greenery in the courtyard, a tinkling fountain and Moorish tiles and architecture.
His sister in the novel, Julia, asked, “Where can we hide in fair weather, we orphans of the storm?” And while she wasn’t referring in any way to Morocco, she may as well have been, for many an Englishman feels the same way and travels here when the clouds and rain never dissipate back home.
And what better place to seek sunshine than Palais Namaskar, a true oasis in the desert? Head straight here if you need to unwind and relax. Located about a twenty minute drive from the city centre, it guarantees smog-free air and a peaceful ambiance from the moment you open your car door. Spice is in the air as well, for the place tends to warm up at night when resident DJs spin their tunes at the bars and restaurants and romance is in the air.
The twelve acres (five hectares) of beautifully landscaped greenery offer water features (1.5 hectares) and ponds wherever you look and walk: there are paths and bridges to cross over at almost every step. And the effect is stunning both day and night, even if the practicality may not be.
