Elda in Morocco with Mademoiselle Robot

24-03-2014

Happy Monday everyone! I have so much to tell you today: I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Morocco, near Marrakesh to be exact. I was invited to spend a few days at the Fellah Hotel in order to review it for my blog. I wasn't sure what to expect, of course I had seen the photos on their website and read reviews of the place in VOGUE and other publications, so I knew it was absolutely stunning. Nothing, however could have prepared me to the absolute perfection of my stay there.


Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 14.30.15

This is where I was staying, about 25mn from Marrakesh airport and 30mn from the centre of Marrakesh by car.



This is taken a few minutes after I arrived and was greeted with a non-alcoholic cocktail called "Green Fellah", a mix of fresh orange, lemon and mint from the hotel's garden. As you can see, I always rely on my Knighthood backpack when I travel.

Shortly after, I took possession of my room, a large moroccan paradise with its own private terrace overlooking the Atlas mountains and the beautiful hotel gardens.

With no time to waste, I slipped into my Summer dress, grabbed Elda and I was off to the pool for some well-deserved post-travelling lunch. Chicken kebabs and fresh grilled vegetables: yum!

When the temperature soared a little too high for my fragile skin, I retreated to the Library to catch up on some reading.

Elda stayed behind to listen to the radio in our room.

On the second day of my stay, I got to help cook a tajine from start to finish. I even picked vegetables from the garden. It was the most fun I had cooking in years! 


P3190207


We had lunch on our private terrace and this time Elda joined us! I wore a simple silk dress with colours echoing Elda's hues - pastels are the best in hot weather. I also wore some slides, nothing better to roam around the hotel grounds.

After that, I headed over to the hotel's spa (which they call "Wat Po") for a traditional hammam experience. Let me tell you about that: you sit in a steamed up room for a while, then you get washed with black soap, exfoliate with a loofah before covering yourself in henna and rinsing it all with cold water. It is like a rebirth. After the hammam, I felt so clean and so light... Not to mention my skin is now the smoothest it's ever been! 


P3190202


After the hammam, I needed a little pick me up, so I nibbled on a few dried figs, dates, apricots and sultanas.

Posing on the terrace. You can see the Atlas mountains in the distance.

On the third day, we headed into Marrakesh to visit Les Jardins de Majorelle, created by painted Jacques Majorelle and later bought by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Berge. This is a magical place, colourful and bright, with over 100 different types of plants, cacti, succulents, palms from everywhere around the world.


P3210213


This colour is known as "Majorelle Blue"



P3210231

Not bad, uh?



On the last day, we enjoyed breakfast in the Fellah Restaurant before heading back home to London, head spinning from all the beautiful sights.
