My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Taos. If you are looking to visit Marrakesh but prefer to come and go rather than spend your entire time in the city then this is the perfect place for you.
We were able to enjoy and visit all the sites of Marrakesh (only 15-20 minutes and a 10-12 Euro taxi ride away) and return to this oasis at the end of it all. It really provided an excellent opportunity to relax and unwind just on the outskirts of a truly exotic city!
To start off- the food at Casa Taos is incredible! The owners ,Hicham and Karima, are real believers of the farm to table philosophy which is reflected in every meal. A great deal of the fruits and vegetables served are from their own garden and anything else comes from local producers and suppliers. You’re served freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice at breakfast with homemade jams, eggs, freshly baked breads and I mustn’t forget olive tapenade. Dinner was a real culinary treat each night and the desserts were out of this world. As this is not a big hotel you have the opportunity to dine and interact with other guests if you wish or just to be on your own.
We had the Ousmane Sow room which was spacious and tastefully decorated with traditional Moroccan details. The main house also had a salon which is great for after dinner drinks, afternoon tea or just relaxing on the sofa. I especially loved the décor and the colors used throughout.
The property itself is very beautiful as it is full of orange, lemon and grapefruit trees; a few hammocks and, of course, a beautiful pool to lounge around.
Best of all the owners of Casa Taos and the staff members are so helpful and clearly have a passion for what they do. We will be back!
