Most people looking for luxury in Morocco often head directly to Marrakech for some of the top offerings in the world, but as the largest city in the country, Casablanca has several luxury options as well. From traditional Moroccan design, to Art Deco boutiques, to incredible penthouses overlooking the city, there are plenty of places to choose from. Here are our picks for the best luxury hotels in Casablanca.
Hotel & Spa Le Doge
Located in one of the city’s grand former mansions, the Hotel & Spa Le Doge is the perfect place to indulge yourself on vacation. The hotel is decorated in an Art Deco style throughout and indeed was built in the 1930s. You’ll find numerous examples of antique furniture, artistically framed paintings, and ornate decorations throughout the lobby. The décor of each of rooms follows suit and are inspired by different artists from the Art Deco period. Guests will also enjoy lounging in the hotel’s 5th-floor hanging gardens offering stunning views of the city. Other amenities at this location include a restaurant with a grand dining room, a meticulously designed spa, and a classy gym.
Kenzi Tower Hotel
To treat yourself to luxurious surroundings with the best view in the city, go for the Kenzi Tower Hotel. It’s located near several neighborhoods with great shopping and not too far from the beach or CBD. Most of the rooms have jaw-dropping views, and you can also head up to the incredible Sens restaurant on the 27th floor or the even higher Sky 28 lounge to spend the day sipping cocktails while watching the birds flying around the skyline. The famous Spa Themae also has a location here and features two hammams, two saunas and six treatment rooms to pamper yourself in.
Art Palace Suites Hotel & Spa
Art lovers don’t need to look any further than the Art Palace Suites Hotel & Spa. This 25-room boutique hotel is full of suites that are decorated in a style that evokes the era of historical figures and celebrities that once graced Casablanca. These elegant rooms are vibrantly decorated and all come with hanging chandeliers in the main room. There’s no need to leave the hotel for dinner, as the onsite restaurant, Art Age Casablanca, is one of the finest in the city and is worth dining in for the ambiance alone. The O-Zen spa is also spectacular and features an authentic hammam, lighted heated pool, sauna, and a rest room for chilling out after a long day.
Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche
For something on the trendy side, it’s hard to go wrong with Sofitel’s Casablanca offering, the Casablanca Tour Blanche. This hotel is not short on amenities, and the first four floors are all dedicated to services that will delight any traveler looking for luxury. The grand hotel features two excellent restaurants, a bar, a spa spanning two floors, and a penthouse for special occasions. The Le Casart bar is of particular interest and features nightly music from local artists along with a stellar champagne list. The location is also great, and the 171 rooms (most with incredible views) will have you staying in style.
Hyatt Regency Casablanca
If you’re looking for a luxurious stay near downtown and the medina, it’s hard to beat the outstanding location of the Hyatt Regency Casablanca. As you walk in the hotel, you’ll notice that everything is covered in elegant dark wood accents making for a refined and upscale feel. Roses located throughout the lobby help to balance it out and make you feel completely relaxed. Behind the reception desks, you’ll find a bar with a masculine vibe and beautifully decorated walls making it the perfect place to lounge around and smoke a cigar with some scotch. The rooms are rather elegant and match the rest of the hotel quite nicely. The rest of the ground floor is also luxurious and large, including several restaurants, lounges and a fantastic spa.
Conveniently located between the sea and Boulevard D’Anfa, one of the trendiest districts in the city, Val d’Anfa is an ideal location for exploring the city while staying in luxury accommodations. The design of the hotel is one of the best examples of traditional-meets-modern, and the outside walls look as if you were entering a gigantic palace or museum. Val d’Anfa certainly has the most Moroccan styling on our list, and the rooms capture this well with tiled ceilings, traditional large doors, and intricate mosaics around the walls. The hotel also includes five restaurants and bars that are no doubt some of the best in the city, while the hotel’s disco stays open until 3:30 a.m. with frequent belly dancing shows.
