Quiet room in garden: great slow holidaySidi Kaouki, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco
The contrast of blue and white can be seen in this beach bungalow, from the beach chairs to the windows and it creates an unusually calming balance of colors. Hotel Villa Soleil features rooms with double beds and a patio, ideal for honeymooners or couples. The location is just three minutes away from Sidi Kaouki Beach and a beachfront location also means chilly nights from the ocean breeze, when the indoor fireplace comes in handy for a warm, soothing remedy.
