Marrakech just became easier to fly to. Here’s why you should give it a chance…

With its warming sun, sensational scents, energetic avenues and intriguing sounds, Marrakech has been opened up by British Airways

From the Medina, a cultural icon with its variety of stalls and markets, to the stunning monolith of the Koutoubia Mosque, Marrakech is a striking city. The Bahia Palace, historic Saadian Tombs and oasis of the Agdal Gardens are all beckoning, tempting you to pack your bags and head to the airport — and British Airways have just made it a lot easier for you.

Now, you can fly to the Moroccan city from Heathrow directly — four new weekly flights introduced in addition to the airline’s Gatwick offering. And, what’s more, British Airways are offering three nights at the 5* Mandarin Oriental Marrakech through their holidays service, from £1249 per person when you travel between January 7 to January 30.

And it’ll be a break to remember. Ride camels, wander through the city and watch the locals cook and create. Perfect the art of haggling to get the best price for a traditional tagine dish, and then purify yourself in a relaxing Hammam.

The Mandarin Oriental will only add to your experience. Lying in 20 hectares of fragrant gardens and gnarly olive groves, the hotel is a five-star luxury resort only minutes from the city centre. With excellent facilities and world-class dining, they offer the perfect compliment to your ultimate Moroccan escape.
