Banyan Tree is finally making its mark on the Mediterranean and Africa, with their brand-new property in Morocco set to open in September 2016. The Banyan Tree Tamouda Bay will feature 92 luxury pool villas, ranging from 200 to 423 square metres, all with magical views of the Mediterranean Sea. Inspired by the rich local architecture and culture, each villa comes with a private garden and pool, and some will even boast direct access to the beach.
The resort is a 20-minute drive from the charming city of Tetouan, which sits at the foot of the Rif Mountains and is home to the Medina of of Tetouan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city of Tangier, which is famous for its Kasbah, bazaars and souks is also only an hourlong drive from the resort.
The unspoilt beaches in the area are the perfect backdrop for horseback riding, scuba diving, wakeboarding, jet-skiing and whale and dolphin watching near the bay. Golf lovers will also not be disappointed with the Cabo Negro Royal Golf Club and Tangier Royal Golf Club nearby.
As expected of any Banyan Tree, the resort will house four restaurants, including its signature Banyan Tree Thai restaurant, and award-winning spa and hammam. The highlights, of course, will be the traditional Moroccan delicacies and comforting Mediterranean-inspired seafood dishes, which you can enjoy by the beach or under a traditional tent.
In celebration of the opening, Banyan Tree will be offering a choice of two offers: a complimentary night stay with every three nights booked from 1 September–31 October 2016, or US$100 dining and spa credit per villa per night to enjoy during your stay through 31 October 2016.
