Hotel Spotlight: Dar Ahlam, Morocco

Hotel Feature |

Get ready to be wowed with the Dar Ahlam in Morocco! Once an ancient castle, this all-inclusive resort is surrounded by spectacular desert views and features exquisite food and drinks which are all-inclusive with your stay. A 4×4 is also included, along with camel treks, donkey rides through the palm plantation, and desert picnics. “The creation of a Parisian party planner, Dar Ahlam is as luxurious as lodgings get – let alone in this landscape.”




The hotel can arrange half or full day excursions to the area’s best sights. Highlights can include taking a 4×4 through the Dadès and Drâa valleys, a trip to the Glaoui Kasbah and its old Jewish district, quadding or camel riding to nearby gorges or villages (so you can stock up on freshly made goat cheese, olive oil and handmade pottery), or riding a stallion to the shores of Almansour Lake.





“Meals are an enchanting daily surprise: tables are set up in different locations depending on the day’s theme. The menu combines traditional Moroccan specialities and the latest culinary innovations. Frederick Grasser Hermé is in charge of savoury delights, and desserts are dreamed up by French pâtissier Pierre Hermé.”




This would be the perfect destination to combine with a few nights in Marrakech- you can even take a helicopter from Marrakech to Dar Ahlam!  Does this sound like a trip of a lifetime to you? Let’s chat and start planning your vacation today!

South Africa

Real Honeymoon |

I apologize for the lack of posts around here- things have been extra busy planning incredible honeymoons around the world, and working on some fun projects that I will be sharing soon!  Today I have an amazing honeymoon to share from a couple that recently went to South Africa.  Beach honeymoons aren’t for everyone, and South Africa was the perfect honeymoon destination for Han & Amanda! They loved the blend of chic city nightlife, relaxing day trips, and adventurous activities. They have so many beautiful pictures from their adventures!

Han & Amanda started their honeymoon in Cape Town, and enjoyed a day trip to Table Mountain

Penguins on Boulder Beach!

Next Han and Amanda headed off to Thornybush Private Game Reserve and stayed at Serondella Game Lodge.  This is a small game lodge with incredible service, and includes dawn and dusk safari drives every day.  Han and Amanda saw so many beautiful animals!

Cute baby zebra!

A beautiful kudu, which is a species of antelope

A lion, captured mid roar!

The highlight of their game drives was coming across this mother and baby rhinoceros enjoying a quiet morning walk. How adorable is that little guy?!

Thanks so much Han and Amanda for sharing your honeymoon!  Interested in going to South Africa for your honeymoon? Contact us!
