thesuites Essaouira, Essaouira, Morocco
At Essaouira time itself seems to stand still
Essaouira is a vision of contemporary North African elegance just outside the atmospheric Atlantic port of Essaouira. Designed in collaboration with Studio KO, the architects behind Marrakech’s eagerly awaited Yves Sant Laurent Museum, the villa is designed according to Morocco’s architectural tradition, combining concrete and local stone to create a warm rustic canvas, accented with eclectic interior details, modern designer furniture and lighting, and contemporary portrait photography. Sleeping up to six, Essaouira frames a central courtyard, shaded by a slatted wooden roof, leading to an L-shape infinity pool, which looks across the hillside to Essaouira and the sea beyond. The main villa building contains an open-plan kitchen and living area, a hammam and three bedrooms.
With fashion shoot good looks, an exquisitely private setting, and attention paid to even the smallest detail, Essaouira makes an excellent and entirely one-of-a-kind retreat for families or small groups.
