Sur la plage

Bathed in 340 days of sunshine and benefitting from cool coastal breezes, Paradis Plage offers a beach-friendly escape year round. Thrill-seeking family members will love the resort’s proximity to the famous Taghazout surfing village and easy access to some of Morocco’s best surfing spots.

Making waves

At Paradis Plage, nourishing the planet is just as important as pampering yourself. Alongside banning single-use plastics, the resort has implemented a recycled water irrigation system and a waste management scheme, ensuring the site runs cleanly for the benefit of the local environment. As the leading Morocco eco-resort, the luxurious suites and villas are built from natural materials (all procured within a 30km radius of the resort), with interiors crafted by local residents. Outside, landscaped gardens are planted with regional species to encourage biodiversity and protect indigenous ecosystems.

Foodie temptations

Culinary offerings at Paradis Plage are as good for the soul as its wellness activities. Eco-credentials don’t end with single-use plastic, thanks to menus filled with local organic produce sourced from surrounding farms. Order the catch of the day at Chiringuito restaurant to enjoy fresh fish delivered daily by local fisherman, or sit down to a Moroccan sunset over the beach at the Lounge, where a feast of traditional Moroccan dishes are prepared daily with organic seasonal fruits and vegetables and fresh seafood.

5-star R&R

Find your inner peace at the yoga shala, where, from sunrise to sunset, gurus take you through the day with classes held in glass-fronted studios overlooking the beach, or embark upon the ancient traditions of Moroccan hammam at the resort’s eco-spa. From orange blossom and argan oil, to honey and saffron, sensorial spa treatments use the best natural products harvested from the surrounding area. At this idyllic resort, rest and relaxation is considered essential for all the family – not just adults. Little ones over six years can join you in multi-cabin treatment rooms to enjoy chocolate massages, while young yogis can get together in the beachside studios for mindful moments looking out over the ocean.
