Tourism keeps booming in Morocco, and that means new hotels continue to be developed left and right to accommodate for the uptick in visitors. From Hyatt to the Blue Bay Group, every big hotel chain wants in on the sunny coutry. Here are some of the new hotels in Morocco that have recently opened or will be opening soon.
For those traveling to Marrakech, the former Taj Palace has recently been bought and remodeled by the Blue Bay Group with the opening of the Blue Diamond Sahara Palace. The hotel is located in the Palmeraie area northeast of Marrakech and comes with panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains. It features 89 suites, riads with suites, four gourmet restaurants, a cigar bar, and a tea room. Additional amenities include a fabulous spa with 14 treatment rooms, two traditional Moroccan hammams, a yoga room, and a large swimming pool. We have no reason to doubt that it will be even better than the former Taj Palace.
Just over on the coast coast between Taghazout and Agadir, Hyatt has opened the 152-room Hyatt Place Taghazout Bay. The hotel is in a great location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and features an 18-hole golf course. There are outdoor swimming pools, an authentic hammam, and six treatment rooms. The hotel is also the first Hyatt Place to open in Africa.
Back in Marrakech, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts plans to open its third property in Morocco in Q4 2015.

There will also be seven dining and entertainment venues on site, including a signature Moroccan restaurant and night club. It’s sure to fit right in the city’s large collection of grand hotels.
