Resort to golf in Marrakech

Not withstanding the film, Casablanca, there are many reasons for visiting Morocco.

Not far away is Marrakech, which can hold its own as a bustling market, tourism and a golf resort.

For golfers Marrakech offers packages on both the Golf Royal de Marrakech, an 18-hole course opened more than 70 years ago and the newer course, Golf Amelkis, designed by Cabell Robinson.

If you decide to travel to Marrakech which is one of Morocco's most colourful cities then go in style and stay at the La Mamounia.

Following its vast renovation some years ago the hotel which is part of the Leading Hotels of the World Group combines rich, traditional Moroccan architectural style with an art deco design. It could be described as stunning.

Including park view room, breakfast, one dinner, transfers and green fees, a three-night package starts from around £280 and for a 7 night package £252 per night with full facilities including 7 green fees, hotal gift and a free roll on the roulette wheel in the Casino.
