Time Hotels to refurbish its first Moroccan site
UAE-headquartered Time Hotels has signed an agreement to manage an equestrian eco-resort in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.
The company’s first property in the North African country will now undergo a major extension and facelift which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
The resulting Atlas Crown Collection by Time Resort will comprise 17 luxury cedar wood lodges, 18 hotel suites, a conference centre, a heated outdoor and indoor swimming pool, restaurant, man-made lake, wellness spa, horse stables and a kids’ club.
The onsite spa will offer a hammam along with massage treatments. Wellness will also be extended to dining, with the resort chef preparing menus using organic food, with vegetable and herb gardens located in the hotel’s own grounds.
Mohamed Awadalla, CEO of Time Hotels, commented: “The resort is located approximately one hour by car from Fes airport, which has regular connecting flights to Casablanca and Rabat. The resort will be an ideal all-year-round getaway for families and couples to unwind and relax in a beautiful natural environment. Located on the lakes circuit, Atlas Crown is just at a walking distance from several lakes.”
The signing ceremony took place at the African Hospitality Investment Forum (AHIF) 2022, which this year took place in Taghazout near Agadir, Morocco.
Time has several other projects underway including Time Express Hotel Riyadh, a 105-key site imminently opening in the Saudi Arabian capital; Time Phoenix Hill in Vacoas-Phoenix, Mauritius, a 120-room property due to complete in Q2 2023; and scheduled for the same quarter, the 117-key Time Marina Hotel & Convention Centre in New Alamein City, Egypt.
