Sofitel opens luxury hotel in Casablanca, Morocco
Situated at the heart of the business district of Casablanca, Morrocco’s business capital the new five star Sofitel Hotel is housed in a 24-story building with 141 bedrooms and 30 suites. The interior of Sofitel Tour Blanche ingeniously mixes clean lines with Moorish trimmings.
The hotel also offers a variety of dining possibilities, including Mourad Mahfoud, Moroccan chef of L’Arabesque restaurant, who trained in Paris, subtly combines French cuisine with local seasonal products in this gastronomic restaurant. L’Atelier Oriental mixes flavours from the Maghreb, Arabia, Persia and Asia. The La Casart bar is the latest addition to Casablanca’s reputable night life. The bar lounge is dedicated to art, and its paintings and sculptures fit in perfectly with the decor, in particular René Caussanel’s mural “Jaune Soleil” (Yellow Sun).
Sofitel Casablanca’s SPA features hammam, indoor heated pool, jacuzzi and 6 treatment rooms. The So Spa is a trendy spa offering unique well-being experiences, combining the sophistication of French cosmetics (Cinq Mondes) with the leading expertise in beauty care from Morocco and around the world
Finally, resembling the apartments on the New-York roof-tops, the Penthouse situated on the 24th floor is a prestigious villa on the hotel rooftop, with protected access. The exclusive suite is breathtakingly decorated and has a 120m² terrace with an unobstructed view of the city.
Sofitel is the first international luxury chain hotel to open in Casablanca in the past decade, the city being notorious for its lower quality accommodation, due to long due renovations.
