Valentine’s Day at La Mamounia in Morocco
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I’m getting news of packages all over the world. But the one that has me fantasizing on this cold snowy day is the one from La Mamounia in Marrakech, Morocco.
I spent a few idyllic days La Mamounia some years ago, before the renovation that has really made this iconic hotel sparkle, and since then I have been yearning to return.

During their stay, couples will experience the exotic flavors of cocktails at the Gallerie Majorelle, followed by a romantic dinner for two at the hotels L’Italien restaurant by Don Alfonso, a temple of Italian gastronomy.
To top off the lovers’ weekend, couples are invited to experience the magic of Marrakech and splendor of La Mamounia from the air. A private, 45-minute helicopter ride above the Atlas Mountains completes the exquisite La Mamounia Valentine’s weekend.
