Located in the heart of the picturesque seaside town of Essaouria on Morocco's Atlantic coast, Hotel Heure Bleue Palais is a Relais and Chateaux luxury boutique hotel as rich in history as it is in luxury and style.
Featuring just 33 rooms and suites, L'Heure Bleue Palais is a 19th century former residence deserving of Essaouira's rich past. Exquisite furnishings pay tribute to its African, European and Arabian influences. There's a romantic leafy courtyard with Moroccan candlelamps, and when you feel like cooling down, pop up to the roof terrace for a quick dip, and great views of the historic medina and port.
The hotel has three delightful dining options for guests. The Oriental serves both modern and classic Moroccan cuisine, Kemia offers Oriental tapas with the emphasis on local seafood and the Terrace Grill offers al fresco dining with gorgeous views of the Medina and nearby ocean.
Leisure facilities at L'Heure Bleue Palais include a lovely rooftop pool, a traditional hammam and a range of massages and spa treatments are available either at the rooftop terrace or in the privacy of your room or suite.
We like: The great location and wonderful views from the rooftop terrace.
Best for: Couples and honeymooners looking for a boutique hotel with a rich character and history.
