BEHIND THE SHOOT: MARRAKECH
Behind every incredible shoot lies an amazing location. This year our swim shoot brought the Brown Thomas team to the magical city of Marrakech. Go behind the scenes to the location of our shoot and find out our top tips on where to eat, swim, sleep and visit in the Moorish city.
SLEEP & SWIM @ LA MAMOUNIA
There is no better location to show off your incredible new swimwear than at La Mamounia in Marrakesh. The grand dame of Morocco is as fabulous and seductive as it was when it opened its doors in the 1920s. Every inch of this palatial-like property has been created to make the guest feel as though they have arrived in some regal estate of an Arabian kingdom. Whether you find yourself in one of the five bars, four restaurants or the huge underground spa and swimming pool, your every wish is attended to solicitously.
EAT @ NOMAD
Nomad restaurant located in the city's spice square has a killer view of the Medina's minarets from its twin rooftop terraces. But just as good is the blissfully light cuisine—cauliflower and fennel salad, savoury vegetarian pastries, cumin calamari—that’s a welcome alternative to typically hearty Moroccan cooking. Go at dusk to watch the sun go down over the city and to watch the stylish expat set come and go.
VISIT @ JARDIN MARJORELLES
The Jardin Majorelle was created by the French painter Louis Majorelle, who lived in Marrakesh between 1922 and 1962. It then passed into the hands of another Marrakesh lover, the late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. The garden is a sight for sore eyes, with green bamboo thickets, lily ponds, and an electric-blue gazebo. You can easily see where Yves' inspiration for majorelle blue came from. The Yves Saint Laurent Museum, which opened in late 2017, is next door and a must-see for fashion lovers as his famous illustrations are on display.
