Hi everyone, Happy New Year, again.
This is my first personal blog for 2019 and I am so excited to share my trip to Marrakesh, Morocco, with you all. As you may be aware, (if you follow me on Instagram, @musukaikai), I was in Sierra Leone for Christmas 2018. Unfortunately I didn't blog much or document my trip as I really wanted to focus on reconnecting with family and friends who I hadn't seen in two years. On my return to London my sister Wokie and I decided to take a trip to Marrakesh to celebrate her birthday.
As always Marrakesh was a great experience, sans a few incidents which I may touch on in a blog post... lets see how that goes. This year I want to share more and connect with my readers on issues that interest me. Fingers crossed I feel the same way as the year progresses.
Whenever we revisit a city Wokie and I always ensure we find new spots to hangout. Top on our list this year was Ksar Kasbah and Spa, a boutique raid in Marrakesh. The establishment is located near the Djemma el Fna Medina and servers as the perfect escape from the noisy souks.
On arrival at KSAR Kasbah we were served traditional Moroccan tea with a variety of biscuits. We were then given a room and booked in for lunch and a traditional Moroccan Black Soap Hammam. Prior to our hammam we spent a couple of hours in the heated pool. We were then taken upstairs to the spa for our hammans which lasted about an hour and can best be described as on of the the most cleansing and relaxing spa experiences.
After the hammam we were quite relaxed, but hungry, so we proceeded to the rooftop for lunch. We spent the rest of the day taking in the views of Marrakesh from the roof.
Overall I would rate my experience and the customer service at KSAR Kasbah 9/10. The staff were very polite and helpful, the food was delicious, and the hammam was relaxing. Also, despite being located in the heart of the Medina the riad was very quiet and clean.
