Covid-19 Flexible Booking Conditions for 2021 Holidays

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic wiping out most of our holiday plans for 2020, amongst the many other frustrations and difficulties it has caused, we think it’s time to have something to look forward to for 2021 and beyond!

The team at Mint Morocco have been actively working behind the scenes to plan for the season ahead and for the exciting time that Morocco finally opens its doors to UK visitors. Of course, the health and wellbeing of our guests is of paramount importance, therefore we have ensured that all of our beautiful Moroccan properties adhere to the highest level of cleanliness and hygiene, and that the professional teams at our catered villas and small riads follow specific safety protocols.

We work closely with our owners and suppliers in Morocco and due to the pandemic, we have agreed more flexible booking terms to provide greater peace of mind for our guests:

– Deposits – are still payable at the time of booking, but should you not be able to enter Morocco due to the pandemic and the FCDO advise against travel or the borders remain closed, we can defer your stay to another time (subject to availability), or arrange a refund for you
– Balances will only be due 6 weeks prior to arrival in Morocco instead of the usual 9 weeks
– Insurance – Adequate travel insurance must be pre-booked at the time of securing your accommodation with Mint Morocco

Due to the ever-changing situation globally, we are closely monitoring any governmental advice from both Morocco and the UK, but very much look forward to welcoming our guests back to sunny Morocco soon!

If you would like to secure your 2021 riad or hotel, contact the team via our website, email, call us on +44 208 537 2444 or get in touch via social media.

Express 1 hr Cookery Lesson at La Maison Arabe

After a few very busy days in Marrakech, visiting our suppliers to seek out more hidden gems to add to our Mint Morocco collection, we thought we would treat ourselves to a little relaxation, and experience one of the ‘Express Cookery Workshops’ available at Marrakech’s top Cookery School, the legendary La Maison Arabe.

We had always been under the impression that the art of Moroccan cookery, in particular, the tasty tajines, was to cook them slowly at a very low heat. Little did we know that we could rustle up a delicious, authentic Moroccan meal in just under an hour!
