Want to retreat from the frenetic pace of the souks? We’d like to let you in to our hottest secret. It’s called Maison MK and it’s Marrakech’s newest nouveau-boutique Riad.
It is owned and designed by fashion photographer, Paul Hopkins, and he has hit on the perfect blend of Islamic and 21st-century architecture. Chill out next to an illuminated pool flickering with tea lights and rose petals, and hook up your iPod to choose the perfect soundtrack. The interior is testament to Paul’s stylish eye for seamless lines and tranquil hues, and it’s located a stone’s throw from the pulsating medina.
Best of all Black Tomato has designed the ultimate VIP trip to get you under the skin of Morocco’s gems. Firstly, we can arrange a one-on-one photography course with Paul, who will escort you through the labyrinth of bustling lanes, luscious gardens and beautiful mosques to teach you the secrets of how to capture the best photos of this magical city. More of a shopper than a snapper? We can provide a personal shopping guide to help you navigate the incredible goods on offer. Fancy learning the secrets of Morocco’s traditional cuisine? Our personal cookery course includes trips to the local markets and bread ovens, and one-on-one tuition back at sanctuary of the Riad kitchen.
Feel like a jaunt to the heart of the Atlas Mountains? Nothing clears the cobwebs like a walk through these picturesque villages and hamlets, winding through forests brimming with wild flowers, olive trees, citrus groves, and cascading waterfalls – this landscape is a prime location for pure tranquillity. And for the more adventurous, there's some intense mountain biking and white-water rafting.
Afterwards, we can arrange for a butler to serve you a gourmet picnic in a wonderfully tourist-free stretch of these cool foothills – complete with picnic table, a white umbrella, orange silks, china crockery and a bottle of champagne.
Morocco is the ultimate escape from the daily grind - the closest you''ll come to the rat race is a camel caravan.
