Just imagine it…owning a beautiful Marrakech property with its very own sea view. It sounds like an ideal combination…. Unfortunately, Marrakech lies some 160 kilometres inland from the coast, so unless you happen to be blessed with superhuman vision, sea views are absolutely out of the question!
Making Waves in Marrakech…
However, all is not lost… owners of properties at the new Al Johara Resort near Marrakech will soon be able to enjoy what is believed to be Morocco’s first wave pool.
The developers of this amenity packed family resort are investing hundreds of thousands of euros in a state-of-the-art wave generating pool complete with swaying palms and a white sandy beach.
Ok, so we are not exactly talking “Marrakech on Sea” here…but this fantastic wave pool, capable of producing 4-6 sizable waves per minute, is sure to be a hit with the whole family. However, if they get bored playing surfer dudes, the Al Johara Resort has plenty of other distractions.
On-site there is a nine hole golf course with practice greens and a driving range, a tennis academy, equestrian centre, Moroccan cookery school, fully equipped gymnasium and health spa.
Those who prefer to float serenely on an airbed sipping a cool cocktail will be pleased to know that the Al Johara Resort also has an abundance of non-wave generating swimming pools!
