Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca
You know what you’re getting when you check into a Four Seasons hotel and that’s an unparalleled luxury. And the premium hotel chain’s Casablanca hotel is no exception, located in a prime spot only three minutes away from the beach and filled to the brim with top-quality amenities. Every room at the Four Seasons Casablanca hotel comes with a sleek, stylish design from top to bottom, like the neutrally decorated rooms with their sumptuous beds, oversized bathrooms with huge baths overlooking the ocean, and fancy bath products to use during your stay. The rest of the resort has a lot to shout about, too: you can use both the spa center and fitness center throughout your stay or take a dip in the large, rectangular pool. When you’re done swimming, spend some time tanning in the beautiful surroundings or head to the restaurant for a delicious meal.
Melliber Appart Hotel
Melliber Appart Hotel is still a pretty fancy resort, but it’s one that’s a little more budget-friendly than some of its luxurious neighbors. Still, it’s set in a brilliant location overlooking the seafront and is only moments away from the hustle and bustle of Casablanca’s thriving center. Melliber Appart Hotel has a range of suites to suit all kinds of travelers, ranging from the Bronze Suite with its large bed and beautiful terrace right the way through to the Superior Gold Suite, designed for families who need a little more space. Here, you’ll have not only a bedroom but also a living room with an L-shaped sofa, a private kitchenette, and a terrace looking out at the stunning views below. All suites are air-conditioned and have a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, so you’ll never be bored. And, if you don’t want to cook, there’s a restaurant downstairs.
Hôtel Club Val d'Anfa Casablanca
If you’re someone who loves a dip in the ocean, Hôtel Club Val d’Anfa Casablanca Ocean View is the hotel for you. As its name suggests, it’s only one minute away from the sea and comes with incredible views to match. Fusing together European and traditional Moroccan architecture, you’ll find vibrantly colorful bedrooms here with classical charm. Large windows and even larger balconies provide a beautiful backdrop to your daily adventures and there’s plenty to do inside the hotel, too. When you’re not out exploring, take a dip in the swimming pool, check out the well-equipped gym, chill out in the relaxing gardens surrounding the resort and wander through the intricate decor spotted throughout the hotel’s communal areas. The hotel has a bar and several restaurants serving a variety of Moroccan and international cuisine. Situated on Casablanca’s Corniche, it’s also near restaurants, bars and nightlife.
Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso & Spa
The Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso & Spa, previously known as the Riad Salam, is one of the most popular beachfront resorts in Casablanca and is a wonderful option for families looking to soak up the sunshine in Morocco. This spacious hotel is built around its uniquely shaped swimming pool, with many of the rooms overlooking its bright blue color. Located only six minutes walk from the beach, the Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso has a swimming pool, a fitness center and a spa as well as large gardens filled with tropical plants. Gaze out the windows from your room to see the sea and the sea-front promenade, La Corniche. Each room, suite or bungalow has a balcony with a view of the sea, outdoor pool or garden. And the best part? The pure relaxation you’ll feel after a trip to Le Lido, the hotel’s spa, which is also the first thalassotherapy spa with seawater treatments in Africa.
Villa Blanca Urban Hotel
Villa Blanca Urban Hotel is sleek and stylish, a premium, beachfront hotel in Casablanca that pulls out all the stops when it comes to guests’ happiness. This design hotel is situated in the Cornice area of Casablanca and overlooks the water. It’ll only take you four minutes from leaving the hotel to throw yourself in the ocean’s water, so you’re never too far away from a spontaneous swim while staying here. Villa Blanca Urban Hotel is well kitted out with everything you could need throughout your stay, including a spa, a well-equipped fitness area and a wellness center. Downstairs, you’ll find a range of impressive restaurants, like The Relais de Paris, which offers a selection of French dishes, and The Loubnane restaurant, serving traditional Lebanese cuisine. There’s also the SkyBar, where you’ll want to spend your evenings enjoying a cool drink or two.
Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort
Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort is technically in El Jadida, rather than Casablanca. But if you’re looking for a luxury beachfront resort and would prefer tranquility over a busy city center, Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort is the place to go. This incredible hotel covers a lot of ground – literally and metaphorically – spanning over 600 acres of land and seven kilometers of beachside access. Unsurprisingly, there’s a lot to explore as soon as you’ve checked in here, like the outdoor swimming pool, casino, and golf course. Or the contemporary designed bedrooms with their unique Moroccan features. Some rooms have a view of the Atlantic Ocean, while others make up for a lack of view with beautiful decor in every direction. A top spot for foodies, you’ll find multiple restaurants and bars at this resort ranging from traditional Moroccan food to international picks. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also find a kids club, a night club and a spa on site.
