Mazagan Resort is Set to Impress
Situated within a 40 minute drive from the Moroccan city of Casablanca, northeast of the coastal town of El Jadida, the US$ 35 million Mazagan Resort is set to be a dream tourist destination once it is complete. The resort has been designed to capture the very essence of Morocco’s traditional architecture and culture to provide guests with a truly authentic Moroccan experience, whilst providing all the modern conveniences expected of a world-class resort.
The Mazagan Resort will feature a five-star hotel with the capacity to accommodate 1,000 visitors, as well as a casino. Included in the project are numerous restaurants, including Portuguese, Moroccan and Mediterranean restaurants specializing in delicacies and traditional foods from the various countries. Visitors will have access to a number of swimming pools set in superbly landscaped gardens, as well as a sea water lagoon area with white sandy beaches. To ensure that the Mazagan Resort is family-friendly, children and teenagers will have entertainment and clubs specifically suited to various age-groups.
The conference center of the Mazagan Resort will have numerous meeting rooms and a board room. The ballroom with room for 1,000 people will ensure that any type of function can be professionally catered for in beautiful surroundings. Golfers can rest assured that they will have ample opportunity to enjoy their favorite sport at the 18-hole golf course designed by world renowned South African golfer, Gary Player. Luxury private residential villas will be dotted around the first-class golf estate.
The initial phase of the Mazagan Resort, which is currently under construction, will occupy 324 hectares of coastal land, and the completed project which will include retail shops, a health spa and a sports academy, will cover more than 514 hectares. The estimated date for completion of the project is August 2009.
Situated on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, the charming town of El Jadida was established as a fortified Portuguese colony in the early 16th century and many of the original Portuguese style buildings remain. The historical fortifications with its ramparts and bastions have been listed as a protected UNESCO site. With all that it has to offer, this popular seaside resort already attracts large numbers of visitors, from within Morocco and internationally, and it is anticipated that the Mazagan Resort will encourage more tourist activity as people discover this beautiful part of Morocco.
