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.

The Villa Dar Limoon has four bedrooms and a living room with a large private pool.

LONDON’S UTMOST LUXURY HOTELS TO VISIT | THE TOP LIST # INSTA WORTHY INTERIOR’S

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2 min read 486 views

When it comes to taking the best photo’s for your instagram feed to share on social media it’s always great when you capture those insta worthy moments to create engaging content

I often find that when I travel to a new city I feel inspired to take photographs during my travels whether it’s a short weekend break to something more long haul on my journeys. The fascination with hotel interiors often gets me excited when I arrive at a new destination to take in my surroundings and a bit of culture too.

Every city is different in it’s own unique way and London is no exception known for its cosmopolitan style as one of the world’s most stylish city’s. When it comes to luxury Hotels I feel so privileged to have London within easy reach on my door stop to explore and discover unique experiences I encounter.

If you love experiencing luxury hotels as much as I do then you will be very enthusiastic to showcase the best that London has to offer whether it’s a day visit or an overnight it’s all about making sure you’re stay is a memorable one.

Here are two of my favourite Hotel’s to visit while I’m in town such as The Rosewood Hotel in Holborn and The Ned in the City of London. Both times I visited each hotel it has been to pop in for a social visit for Sunday lunch, Birthday Celebrations or Evening Drinks as these hotels have a great atmosphere to entertain and relax in wonderful surroundings. The Ned London has quite an Art Deco feel on the ground floor with a selection of restaurants, bars and live jazz band playing on the ground floor and not bad either for a former converted Bank Vault.

If you’re looking for a home away from home feel then be sure to check out The Rosewood Hotel as it’s very much like living an Alice in Wonderland fantasy – but at the same time where East meets West. You can certainly find your inner zen here to relax in their variety of restaurants and bars in style as I did during London Fashion Week.

THE ROOSEVELT HOTEL

It’s one the oldest Hotels in Hollywood which lots of history so I’m told but it’s a great place to hang out in the evenings and star gaze if you can spot them. As a guest you have access to the pool area and its strictly by guest list only. The cast members of THE HILLs once hung out here and other trendy night spots in town Le Deux, Area, the Hyde club may have moved on since then.

DESIGNER SHOPPING ON RODEO DRIVE

 
HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

The walk of fame is situated on Hollywood Boulevard and you can pay homage to your favourite Celebrities past and present.

It can get very busy at times but mainly tourist attraction for first time visitors to Los Angeles and don’t forget The Manns Chinese Theatre its very grand. Are you familiar with the movie Pretty Woman this would be the street where Julia Roberts stared in the Hollywood Movie spending Uncle Edwards Money without a care in the world. Lucky Girl if you can do it. The best part I just had to visit those famous Spanish Steps where Cher in Clueless walks down to the bottom of the fountain then shops at Dior. The famous line ‘I wonder if they have that in my size’ that sums up my shopping trip to Rodeo Drive for today and it was fabulous.

Make a Weekend Trip excursion to Laguna Beach just 1 hours drive from LA

 

Laguna Beach Orange County is a one hour drive from Los Angeles which boast long stretches of pristine sandy beaches and clear blue water.
