Marrakech the Red City in Morocco is the 4th largest City and home of the Koutoubia 12th Century mosque to other must see attractions the Bahia Palace and more.

 Besides tourism you will discover the countries rich cultural history and local customs where culture and cuisine can be experienced in the heart of the city.  But, don’t forget to make the Jardin Majorelle part of your day out sightseeing with beautiful botanical Garden, it’s exotic plants and majestic fountains next to the Yves Saint Laurent Museum.Definitely worth the visit if love fashion and want to find out about the fashion houses cultural significance in the city’s history. In case you’re wondering what the connection is, the association with the French Design House began when the Designer and Pierre Berge first visited the garden in 1966 upon their first stay.

THE BEST LUXURY VILLAS IN MARRAKECH

Before coming to Morocco I’ve always been intrigued by its charm, beauty and splendor, so when the chance came I stumbled upon a dear friend’s Wedding Invitation I just couldn’t turn down the opportunity for a long weekend. It was here I discovered the Dar JL Luxury Villa’s and it’s accommodations and private grounds were just breathtaking – take a moment to admire its surroundings and scenery’s. The garden is beautiful but sometimes it’s a real treat to take time out to rest inside one of the villas. Or why not a have private lunch in the Olive Garden Grove which is where my friend had her Wedding Ceremony.

I recall it being 37 degrees one afternoon so took a swim in one of the swimming pools which had a reflection of the olive tree in it. I’ll never forget that night of the Wedding reception the enchanting magic of the atmosphere lots of candlelight and lanterns were truly an unforgettable experience.

When night falls the magic begins in Marrakech.

Inside the villas you will come across tapestry’s that adorn the walls with magnificent vibrant colour with every fine detail of the cushions local arts and crafts.We partied the night away at Dar JL Hippie Village suite with entertainment from a live DJ set and wedding band till the early hours is such a favourite place to hang out.

Did you know, Dar JL also boast a private pool in one of the suites to outdoor shower facilities if you’re keen on alone time. I absolutely adored the shades of green, purple and yellow and think these colours really compliment the character of the resort not forgetting the 14 acres of tropical gardens to explore.

Dar JL Villa La Tour which enables you to view the snowy Atlas Mountains in awe


Here’s a thought its day two of the Wedding, early morning swim or enjoy a hammam in their luxury wellness suites are divine. Either or, both experiences will make a well afternoon spent just for two as Dar JL has lots of secret places to explore in the garden. After a sunny day, it was time for our tea in the berber tent before getting into the evening mood.

There is so much beauty and colour around you where you will notice the yellow cactus flowers really blend into the garden too. Care for some more Mint Tea before continuing a few steps up of the Dar JL Villa La Tour which enables you to view the snowy Atlas Mountains in awe. Also, entertainment included a late night movie in open wow what an experience I tell you it was under the stars and candle light.

I think the best moment for me is that each night during you’re stay you can find a new place in the garden to have your dinner and new places to hang out in discreet hideaways amongst the tiles and arches. I do miss the outdoor picnics we had during the day after the Wedding for more celebrating of my newlywed friends.

Not forgetting delicious food is so important during your vacation the dining experiences at Dar JL are second to none. I highly recommend coming and sampling the cuisine for the ultimate dining experience

It’s another pool day ahead for Sun lounging, Sunshine and Serenity of Moroccan architecture ticks all the boxes. What else do you need…

With over 300 days of sun per year in Marrakech it’s easy to get here by taxi a 20 minute ride away from the city centre. If you’re keen on planning a visit The Dar JL is a luxury villa resort comprising of four villas that can be rented as a whole or individually.

Ibiza The smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands it is a real paradise lost.

 A Hedonistic Vacation Awaits You: Escape This Summer to Ibiza. I highly recommend discovering the pristine beaches with white sands and blue lagoons of Formentera Island.

PLACES TO VISIT IN IBIZA

The Ibiza Rocks venue hotel grants guests access to weekly pool parties and live DJ sets from big name house music veterans. Meaning that the perfect party is available all under one roof. Make your summer a memorable one, let Ibiza Rocks lead the way.

SOL BEACH HOUSE MIXED BY IBIZA ROCKS

Ibiza’s new sunset destination. The 4 * hotel, formerly Sol Pinet Playa, has had a revamp which boasts an impressive pool overlooking the fine stretch of sandy beaches.

In the evenings watch the tranquil sunset whilst chilling out to the resident DJ, in the contemporary surroundings which host daily pool parties and have breathtaking panoramic views on the hotels rooftop.

Hotel guests easy access to the stretch of coast line for brisk relaxing walks. There is also water taxi’s from the pier that take you into San Antonio Town, which is the second-largest town on the island.

WATER SPORTS ACTIVITIES

From jet ski’s, speed boat tours to diving it’s available from local vendors on the beach with various Bars and Restaurants including a Reggae themed bar to quench your thirst whilst you soak up the sun.

 

WATCH THE SUNSETS
The amazing sunsets in Ibiza are breathtaking and my ideal place to watch it from is the legendary Cafe del Mar on the beach you wont be disappointed.Its the most tranquil experience which your mind boy and soul will appreciate after a long afternoon sunbathing on the beach.

Sample the legendary nightlife scene Ibiza has to offer.

FORMENTERA ISLAND

Alternative excursions I highly recommend are discovering the pristine beaches with white sands and blue lagoons of Formentera Island. The smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands it is a real paradise lost.

CLUB LAND

It’s only 30 mins away from San Antonio Bay in a taxi to the heart of clubland with Ushuaia,

Space and the infamous Blue Marlin. Although, the legendary Cafe del Mar on the Sunset Strip is not too far away, the the Ibiza Rocks venue hotel grants guests access to weekly pool parties and live DJ sets from big name house music veterans. Meaning that the perfect party is available all under one roof.

DISCOVER A TASTE OF CULTURE THROUGH CUISINE

IBIZA TOWN

There are so many great places to select and from a fashion insiders point of view I love STK Ibiza. If you take a stroll down by the marina pier there are a promenade of cafes, bars and restaurants to sample the Spanish tapas or other continental dishes there’s lots to choose from.

 

 

San Antonio Bay is perfect for chilling out if you prefer getting away from the hustle & bustle of the clubbers paradise.Make your summer a memorable one, let Ibiza lead the way.
