Heure Bleue Palais, Essaouira

bushbaby rating

A stunning Relais & Chateaux property, Heure Bleue Palais is a testimony to Essaouira’s glorious past at the crossroads of African, European and Arab civilisations. The hotel offers everything a sophisticated traveller expects of a luxury hotel, yet Heure Bleue Palais still conserves the architecture of a traditional Moroccan riad.

For more earthly pleasures, the billiard room offers guests the opportunity to refine their skill at pool or billiards and at 6pm every evening the home cinema shows either a major sporting event or a classic movie. There is also the opportunity to enjoy a cookery class with the in-house chef, Ahemd Handour.
