Sofitel launches new spa hotel in Morocco
Paris, April 9, 2012
Sofitel Luxury Hotels, a global French hospitality brand, has opened a new thalassotherapy and well-being establishment in Agadir, Morocco.
The Sofitel Agadir Thalassa Sea & Spa is a three-hour flight away from the main European capitals and is the brand’s second hotel in the bay of Agadir, alongside the Sofitel Agadir Royal Bay resort.
'I am delighted to welcome this new flagship hotel to our network of Sofitel Thalassa Sea & Spa establishments. The Sofitel Agadir Thalassa Sea & Spa offers the best of today’s thalassotherapy treatments, paired with Sofitel’s inimitable standards and is incontestably the new well-being reference in Morocco,” said Robert Gaymer Jones, CEO of Sofitel Worldwide.
Designed by the Moroccan architect Jamal Laamiri Alaoui and the French interior designer Didier Rey, the hotel features 125 rooms and 49 suites. Each one has its own private patio overlooking the sea, offering a view of the bay of Agadir and the remains of its ancient Kasbah.
The thalassotherapy institute is an integral part of the hotel. With its elegant, pure white decor, this area is devoted to resting and replenishing both mind and body in a healthy ‘detox’ atmosphere, a statement said.
The institute also proposes treatments inspired by Moroccan traditions to awaken the senses and re-energise the mind and body.
The thalassotherapy facility has 16 booths, leading onto the beach or the hotel gardens, and offer massages with Argan oil and other essential oils.
There are three restaurants, as well as a naturopath and a dietician, who can assist with planning the menu to offer guests genuine and personalised support. – TradeArabia News Service
