Sex and the City’s Marrakech: Style, sophistication, shopping and spa

3rd June 2010 Print

Hold on to your hemlines, dig out your cocktail shakers and slip effortlessly into a pair of Christian Louboutins: the girls are back in town. However on this adventure, the girls have swapped New York for Marrakesh - and vast swathes of girls (and boys) will want to follow in their daintily clad footsteps.

The Angsana Riads Collection is a perfect retreat for those looking for a stylish and unique, central base with Moroccan character, from which to explore Marrakech. There are six individually styled riads located in the medina just 10 minutes walk from Djemma el-Fna Square. Each of them offer the award-winning Angsana spa and personal shopping experiences with local guides so guests can fully indulge in the shopping delights of the city before rejuvenating in the hammam.

Ideal for the Sex and the city experience is Riad Blanc, where guests can sip champagne on the rooftop and have a leisurely soak in the open-air jet pool, or lounge on large day beds. Another favourite includes Angsana Riad Bab Firdaus, one of the largest riads in the collection with an opulent marble spa room and hot tub perfect for a private group spa experience.

Marrakech offers an intoxicating mix of colours, sounds, scents and flavours alongside an explosion of trendy cocktail bars, stylish restaurants and designer kaftans reflecting the influx of the fashion-conscious tourist.

To experience a taste of Marrakech, Voyages Jules Verne ( is offering a three night stay at the Angsana Riad Blanc for £497 per person. This includes return flights from Gatwick, bed & breakfast accommodation, the services of local guides, a sightseeing itinerary and a range of optional excursions (additional cost). This offer is available until December 19 2010.

Prices start from 150 Euros (approx £130) per person per night for a Deluxe Room on a daily breakfast basis. The price includes all taxes. For further information about the Angsana Hotels & Resorts visit:
