The Cesar Resort & Spa is close to the Grand Prix, the Congress and the largest shopping centre in the region - a signature of the designer Raymond Morel. Marrakech brings the most outlandish travellers' tales to life. The pink city has waylaid desert caravans since the 11th century, as visitors succumb to the charms of its bluesy Gnaoua trance music, hypnotic calls to prayer and multi-course feasts.
Marrakech delivers an exotic and exciting taste of Africa
and yet is only a few hours away from Europe by plane. Visitors often disappear down a maze of winding alleys and emerge days later, relaxed and refreshed from their stays in spectacular riads. These traditional courtyard guesthouses range from opulent, palatial oases to smaller, more intimate affairs but they all promise a snapshot of traditional life.
