In June of 2013 my wife and I were on an unplanned trip to Morocco.We had done some basic search on the internet for hotels etc but nothing finalized or booked.
Thanks to this we ended up at a gem of a place called The Capaldi, 30 minutes away from Marrakech, at the foothill of the Atlas mountains.
The place is owned and run by a charming British couple, Edward and Tara.
You can get the full details on their website: http://www.thecapaldi.com/the-capaldi/index.php.
It's a great place to get away from it all.
The location is picturesque, the 2 pools are inviting and serviced by a retinue of efficient staff, the spa is definitely worth a visit.There is a cinema and a library to help you pass the hot summer afternoons.
The restaurant serves excellent French cuisine with a twist. A host of herbs, salads and vegetables are sourced from the hotel's gardens.
The overall experience is one of personalized, unhurried luxury. Tara and Edward take a personal hands on approach to the running of the resort and it's a refreshing change to speak with them and get an insight into aspects of Morocco, like it's art and handicrafts, cuisine and customs and activities around the area.
Marrakech is a short 30 minute drive away. One can go there to send a day, visit the madina and see the sights but great to come back and stay at The Capaldi.
I wish them all the very best.
