Luxury travelers headed to Morocco have a brand-new hotel option with the opening of the St. Regis La Bahia Blanca Resort, Tamuda Bay.

Here’s what you should know about this five-star property located on Morocco’s Mediterranean coast.

St. Regis La Bahia Blanca Resort, Tamuda Bay

On November 6, 2023, the newest Marriott property, the St. Regis La Bahia Blanca Resort in Morocco opened its doors to guests. The 100-key property, built as a private riad with intimate courtyards and lush gardens, is the St. Regis brand’s debut in Morocco.

The luxury resort, located in the country’s north, offers several dining options including Baie Blanche Brasserie, a contemporary French brasserie with Moroccan influences; Bahia Vista Beach Bar & Grill, an elegant beachside grill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea; and the iconic St. Regis Bar. At sunset, the nightly St. Regis champagne-sabering ritual takes place in the Grand Hall Garden, celebrating the transition from day to night.
