Ksar Massa, Sous Massa National Park, Morocco
Situated in a stunning coastal location, the Ksar Massa is just 25 miles south of Agadir and yet really does feel like a world away from the busy city. The hotel is accessed by off-road tracks and is on the edge of the small village of Sidi R'bat, looking out over the long, sandy deserted beach and Atlantic Ocean below. The low rise rooms are based around the pool and all have a private seating/sunbathing area, most with sea views. It also has a hammam (Moroccan steam bath), beauty treatments and massage room. Breakfast and lunch is taken on one of the many terraces looking out to sea and consists of traditional Moroccan fare, while evening meals can be taken in the Moroccan style restaurant, which has an adjoining library and games room.
The perfect place to relax, take long strolls long the beach, swim in the ocean and partake in some excellent Moroccan food. The hotel is also on the edge of the Souss-Massa National Park where a great variety of both sedentary and migratory birds such as flamingo, crane, marbled teal and bald ibis may be spotted in the lagoon.
