What a stunning place. I've just returned from a short break at Casa Taos and it was quite simply amazing. I was travelling alone and they really made me feel like royalty, nothing was too much trouble.
As you walk in you see that the pool looks just as lovely as it does in the photos. It is nestled amongst orange and mandarin trees and I spent most days here reading my book in the sun loungers or sleeping in the hammocks. It was too cold to go swimming but in Dec I wasn't really expecting to.
I woke up every morning with a view of the beautiful snow topped atlas mountains. Inside the room was extremely clean and the decor very well done. My favourite part was the open fire place - which was lit every night as December evenings in Marrakech are very chilly. They built the fire for you so all you had to do was light it after dinner.
My overall highlight has to be the food. Every meal was a mini feast and I genuinely I don't think I've ever had such lovely homemade and homegrown tucker - four courses every night. Melt in the mouth beef, succulent chicken and lemon and yummy meatball tagines. I was also pleasantly surprised with the wine, previously id had some dodgy local Moroccan wine but as with all things at Casa Taos it was impeccable.
The hotel used to be the owners family holiday home and even now you get a real sense of this. To me it felt like a real home from home. I've been to Marrakech twice before and after staying at Casa Taos I'll never go back to staying in the medina.
This place is a little slice a of the divine
