Excursion in the Agafay desert 40 minutes drive from Marrakech. A beautiful day in the Agafay Resort luxury desert camp, between dips in the pool and candlelit dinners.

If you are traveling to Marrakech, but you also want to visit something in the surroundings and venture out to discover the beautiful landscapes of Morocco, an easy and effective solution is to book a room in the beautiful Resort Agafay luxury desert camp and spend a wonderful day surrounded from the magic of the Agafay Desert.

The Agafay luxury desert camp is located about 30km from the center of Marrakech, in the heart of the “Moroccan desert” or, more precisely, in the Agafay Desert (also known as the “Marrakech Desert”). The Agafay Desert is a rocky desert, consisting of an infinite expanse of stony hills, surrounding a lake dotted with bushes and low shrubs.

The Sahara Desert, and the first sand dunes, however, are about 8 hours from Marrakech, so the lunar landscape of Agafay can really be considered a good alternative to an adventurous journey between solitary Berber tents and golden sand.

Agafay luxury desert camp is a luxury resort flourished among the harshness of a lunar and wonderful territory. You can get there after about 40 minutes by car from the Medina of Marrakech, where a Resort driver will pick you up at the point and time set.

Arrived around 15:00, we checked in as usual with a hot glass of mint tea and we reached our room. A triumph of striking white curtains, immaculate soft wool carpets, white seats and ivory cushions: our room transported us to paradise in an instant. We then discovered that only three sides of our house were closed, the long one that gave onto the panoramic terrace divided the exterior and interior only with two layers of thick curtains,

The beautiful pool is a magical sight, which will keep you spellbound until sunset. At that time, the light of the sun setting over the mounds of the valley paints everything pink, and consoles you in a sincere embrace, accompanying you in the evening, Wear something elegant and join the other guests of the estate in tents lit by a thousand lanterns. Here dinner will be served, between the fire of a crackling barbeque and a chat under the moon. The cuisine is varied and delicious and the menu ranges from appetizers to dessert, to fruit.

In general, I think the night spent at La Pause was the most romantic so far. An evocative and beautiful experience, which I would do again ten thousand times.
