Proposal in Marrakech - please help with ideas and places

Hi All,

Next Monday I fly to Marrakech and on my first holiday abroad with my girlfriend. I have decided I'd like to take the opportunity to propose and I have purchased a ring.

I am however, struggling a little with guides and what I can find to some good idea for where an how to propose. Ideally I feel this should be somewhere a little scenic/pretty, and somewhere where we are not around crowds of tourists would be good to.

I’ve tried a Google search of Marrakech proposals and the only real thing that has come up is taking a Caleche ride through the Palmerie at sunset. I like the sound of it and the Caleche’s but on reading about the Palmerie I am not sure if it too nice looking, parts in disrepair and rubbish around. Someone who has been might have to tell me otherwise.

We are likely to be going on a few day trips possibly to Alps areas and also and the waterfalls of Ouzoud which looks spectacular-I’m just unsure if there will be a quite place.

Its difficult as my girlfriend booked the holiday as my surprise for my birthday, I am only just beginning to learn about Marrakech and Morocco, Marrakech does also I believe have a backdrop of poverty, and this perhaps isn’t something that feels right to be on show at a proposal.

I would really appreciate any local help, or thoughts, you may make me and her (hopefully) have a very happy holiday.

I will be happy top post back on here in a couple of weeks with the results/pictures.

I do like the riad idea, and I read these in other discussions. We aren’t stopping at a Riad though, we are stopping ant the Riu Tikka Palmerie hotel, which is quite a large site so it’s kind of squashed that idea. It’s a shame it that way buy I didn’t book the holiday/accommodation.

I wish something would jump out for me, it’s so hard when you can’t see these places, I need to hear of them from you people. It’s hard trying to gauge a place of a few crummy YouTube videos.

Ouzoud is not that popular with foreign tourists as yet and if you go early on a weekday then there will be far less local tourists around so you should be able to find a quiet spot at the bottom somewhere.

But how are you planning on getting there? your hotel is quite isolated out of town which makes getting a private driver or hire car more difficult, and if you are going on a group guided tour then it might make it more difficult to find a private spot

I actually proposed abroad (Rome) as well and remember doing similar research online for the perfect spot!

We would probably be going via one of the organised trips we can go on through the hotel of the travel agent (Thompson holidays) I believe we may have more than one choice who to go with, but like you I was thinking this might be less private. We would have no control over what time of day

what about having a double hamman and massage at one of the up-market spas? we loved this one

mythicoriental-spa.com/en/treatments-rates.h…

you could e-mail the spa beforehand and warn them of your plans. when we went to the above spa, appointments were staggered so that the rest areas and changing rooms etc were for you and your partner only.
