Hospitality Net, AccorHotels opened a five-star beachfront Sofitel in Morocco last month. The Sofitel Tamuda Bay Beach & Spa offers 82 guestrooms, including the Royal Suite, five junior suites, three SoSPA suites, five villas and eight beach suites. Sofitel chose French-Lebanese architect Galal Mahmoud to create Tamuda Bay’s design, which is inspired by 1950s French Riviera. Contemporary architecture is combined with Moroccan influences, seen in geometric motifs and modern reinterpretation of traditional latticework. The hotel also offers three dining options, a spa, gym and meeting space.
