You can’t go on a trip without finding a hidden gem and sharing it – so it’s my turn to tell you all about a very underrated must-visit in Agadir on the east coast of Morocco – La Nouvelle Medina Polizzi. There’s practically no information about this online so let me tempt you to visit!
Rarely does the launch of a dry shampoo draw me in as much as this new scent from Batiste. Marrakech is inspired by aromatic flavours, imagery and sounds of the bazaars in the buzzing city.
I’ve thrown in some bonus photos from all my trips to Marrakech too as you know the city holds my heart …..
The Riu Tikida Garden, a 4* hotel, sits at the southern end of the city’s Palmeraie region. The Palmeraie itself is home to the movers and shakers of Marrakech, calling the vast palm grove their home. Most of the luxury hotel complexes sit in this area.
A mere 20 minutes from the airport, you are transported to an oasis of calm amongst the hubub and bustle of the Medina.

We were lucky enough to visit the Clubhotel Tikida Palmeraie hotel not long after opening, back in 2010 and we were thoroughly impressed. So impressed that I am booked in to the sister hotel in Marrakech in May with Thomson Holidays.
From the outside, the hotel appears very modest, as is the way with a lot of the Riad’s and buildings in Marrakech but once through the doors, you are surrounded by sheer unadulterated opulence.
