Casablanca, the most heavily populated city in Morocco, is also the country’s economic center. Its port alone symbolizes the dynamic nature of the region. In spite of being the site of the Hassan II Mosque, one of the three largest in the world, built at great expense by the king of the same name, and well worth a visit, the city does not receive many tourists. As a modern showcase of Morocco, turned resolutely towards the future and open to the world, the city is the victim of its image.
And yet, Casablanca, partially created by the French in the 1920s, has preserved an important part of its colonial history, especially a magnificent and beautiful group of Art deco structures commissioned by the former French military governor, Field Marshal Lyautey.
The old city of El Jadidah, an hour from Casablanca, is a superb example of Portuguese military architecture. Founded in 1515 by the Portuguese, this city, once called Mazagan, is now a UNESCO world heritage. And just a few minutes from there, we find a 5 story resort with the same name.
The exceptional Mazagan Beach Resort is privileged by its unique position facing the Atlantic Ocean. Located in the middle of a palmeraie and a golf course, this huge Moorish style building with beige stone walls, sculptured friezes and covered with typical Moroccan tiles contains a superb swimming pool hidden in lush greenery.
The Mazagan’s interior was built in the style of an immense riad. The entrance is a succession Moroccan salons that tastefully blend precious wood, traditional mosaics and design concrete. In the center, there’s an atrium covered with an enormous dome and a fountain, typical of Moorish architecture, in which water plays a major role. The result is a harmonious compromise between Morocco’s past and its present.
Its 500 rooms and suites spread over four floors offer guests a unique view of the Atlantic Ocean, the golf course and the gardens. The style is a blend of updated Moroccan and Art deco. By using dark wood modern furniture, the decorators shed light on Morocco’s art de vivre, calling upon the talents of local craftsmen. The high ceilings and abundant natural light, thanks to the large bay window, give the rooms a warm, comfortable and sophisticated feeling. Guests enter their bathroom via a double door made of precious wood.
The 2 royal suites, representing the height of luxury and located in a corner area of the building, have circular, panoramic living rooms, with spectacular views over the horizon.
In the center of the resort, an immense swimming pool surrounded by palm trees is an invitation to total serenity under the warm Moroccan sun. The Mazagan Spa is another space for complete relaxation. After a round of golf at the Mazagan Golf Club, designed by the world champion golfer, Gary Player, the ideal activity is a relaxing luxurious massage using ancient Moroccan techniques.
At one of the complex’s numerous restaurants, the Sel de Mer proposes delicious sea food, and the Morjana serves a delicate Moroccan cuisine which is both traditional and innovative at the same time. World famous tajines, shellfish and couscous with seven vegetables are prepared in the purest ancestral tradition.
For ecological reasons, the golf course is irrigated with recycled water.
