As you can see, it’s not hard to find high-end things to do in Morocco. If you want to impress your loved one or spend money like there is no tomorrow, Morocco can be a great place to experience amazing things that you can’t necessarily find anywhere else in the world. To wrap up, Morocco is a place for all budgets. However, the 4-5 stars travelers should expect to spend between 300 USD up to 1,000 USD+ per day, including accommodation, transport, excursions and meals. However, if you’re looking to have a one of a kind experience, check the inclusions above and expect to pay 10x more. Overall, know for certain that you will surely get your money’s worth. 

Important note: 

High-end travel is seen differently in Morocco. When we hear of luxury travel, we often think of yacht, cruises, five stars resorts etc. However, in Morocco, this has a different twist. For example, most Riads in the Medina are refurbished homes ran by families, the desert camps and the Berber homes in the mountains are owned and/or managed by local natives who quit their nomadic lives to settle in the fast-developing tourism sector. 

No matter how much money you spend, know that the economy, the people and the community involved will eventually be using it to build schools, infrastructure and grow their businesses. This is especially the case if your travel plans are more off the beaten path. Overall, Luxury in Morocco means usually to have unique experiences, indulge in the diverse culture, meet locals and natives, without giving up on comfort and pleasure.

As much as we promote high-end lifestyles, we also encourage our customers to travel responsibly. We make sure the companies and suppliers we partner with operate with conscious awareness about their environmental impact.

  2. The sidecar operator pays a fee every year to an organization that plants trees around the world as a counter-effect of their CO2 Emission.
  3. Most of the hotels we work with hold a Green Key – an internationally recognized eco-label award. 
  4. Our camel rides in Marrakech are only recommended in Agafay, in a partner camp that takes responsibility in treating their camel friends well and making sure they’re getting all the treatments needed.
