Luxurious Holidays – Marvellous Morocco or the Magnificent Maldives

If you’re looking for a destination for a luxurious holiday then why not consider Morocco or the Maldives. Both very different but both quite charming and exotic. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer:

Morocco

Morocco is a holiday destination that is fast growing in popularity amongst people looking to visit an Arab country and to enjoy out of season sunshine. It’s an exotic and colourful country which is unlike anywhere else. As Morocco opens itself up more to tourism there are luxury boutique hotels and charming riads to stay which will make your holiday even more enjoyable. Morocco is a land of diversities with its old walled cities or medinas, snow capped mountains, Sahara desert, and stunning coastlines with its wide stretch of Atlantic beaches and small Mediterranean Bays with their golden sands. Today’s medinas are a contrast of traditional and modern where crowded souks and ancient mosques rub shoulders with alfresco cafes and trendy restaurants.  Marrakech is one of the cities to which most visitors flock  and it’s not hard to see why. Djemaa el Fna is the famous town square of Marrakech and is a constant buzz of activity which is simply fascinating to watch. Snake charmers, dancers, acrobats, singers and healers all attract an audience. The food stalls arrive and set up and you can have fresh food cooked on the spot. The smells and  sight of the food is exquisite and much appreciated by Moroccans. Marrakech also offers a vibrant night life with live music, theatre, dance, festivals and much more. With so much to do and see, Morocco will keep drawing you back for more.

The Maldives

The Maldives is made up of  hundreds of coral islands all surrounded by pristine white sand, turquoise water and swaying palm trees. It’s a touch of paradise on earth. Travel in the Maldives as you island hop is done by plane or boat which gives you plenty of time to admire the stunning beach views. The Maldives is a simple life style which involves bright blue skies, year round sunshine, and amazing diving and snorkelling in lagoons which are as warm as a bath. It’s an exciting place to visit as it undergoes a frenzy of development. New top end resorts, boutique hotels and back to nature hotels are opening every few months. Overwater bungalows in the Maldives are the new craze and proving ever more popular for luxury breaks. There’s plenty to do including dolphin trips, fishing, snorkelling, sunbathing, a picnic on a deserted island, yachting and a sunset cruise. The Maldives is the perfect destination for an indulgent holiday.
