Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent – another beautiful place to visit when in Morocco and it has to be featured on The Viennese Girl blog. I wrote a few words in my previous blog post and here, I can share some photos with you. It wasn’t easy to take the pictures that you see above. The place was crowded and you may already know that I don’t like having strangers in my photos. Besides, it was very hot and the sun was creating strong shadows and causing high contrasts, which is something that I don’t find very flattering in photography. For those reasons, we decided to visit Jardin Majorelle the day after for a second time, with the hope of finding less crowds and cooler temperatures. But it didn’t work out. The next day’s schedule was already full and there was not enough time for us to fit a second visit in the seductive gardens of Jardin Majorelle Rue Yves Saint Laurent.
Jardin Majorelle in Rue Yves Saint Laurent is truly a beautiful place to visit in Marrakesh. What you will find at Jardin Majorelle is: Blue walls, exotic plants and trees, fountains and vibrant colors, a bookstore, a boutique, the Berber Museum and the loveliest café ever where we spent about an hour and drunk something refreshing. I wish it won’t be long before I go back. More from the interesting history here.
All photos of the hotel are taken by me
Back in the mid of September, I had the opportunity to travel to Morocco and spend three amazing nights and even more amazing days at La Mamounia, a palace-hotel in Marrakesh. It was actually a trip that my friend Edisa and I were planning for months; since last May to be more exact. Our excitement and joy at the chance to stay at La Mamounia Marrakesh were huge. Before we got there, we were looking at all the hotel pictures on Instagram and we were dying to visit that dreamy place too.
And then the day came when we arrived at a deluxe room overlooking the enchanting gardens of La Mamounia and the famous Koutoubia Mosque. This place had become my home away from home, a new world to discover. We spent a large part of the day at La Mamounia Marrakesh . Our days began with a delicious breakfast by the pool. Later on, we snapped some photos here and there before we head to the Medina of Marrakesh. For one of the evenings, we stayed at the hotel where we had dinner at the Moroccan restaurant in a romantic setting with candles. At the end of each day, we always took a stroll in the garden through the central alley, rose bushes, and orange trees. It helped us to digest our meal, and to let our minds wander before we go to sleep.
What a pity, time passes by so quickly when you are having fun. The day came when we had to check out, although we would have loved to stay a little bit longer, if you want me to tell you the truth… #LaMamouniaLife ♥
