Sofitel launches new luxury Morocco hotel

Sofitel has opened a luxury property in the new Moroccan resort of Essaouira Mogador on the country's Atlantic coast.

The Mogador eco-resort is set in some 600 hectares of forest along 4 kilometers of coast line, boasting a 36-hole Gary Player golf course and a number of exclusive villas, all designed to be eco-friendly thanks to features such as energy-efficient lighting and water recycling systems.

As of this week, it's also home to the massive Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf and Spa, a spectacular resort property which offers 147 rooms and 28 villas with private pools.

Designed to blend in with its natural surroundings, the hotel is built around a huge stone reception area which offers a view over the golf course and out to the ocean, as well as being home to the Tea Lounge and a cocktail bar.
