At a Glance

Asian hotel company Banyan Tree launched their brand in Africa with Banyan Tree Tamouda Bay, located on the northern coast of Morocco and positioned between the rugged Rif Mountains and the glistening Mediterranean Sea. The property provides a beautiful home-base for both exploring and relaxing.

Indagare Loves

  • The spacious design: all guest accommodations are villas
  • That each villa has a large outdoor space with a private plunge pool
  • The enchanting hotel entrance


Paying homage to the region’s Andalusian-Moorish legacy and Moroccan heritage, Tamouda Bay features white-washed exteriors that lead to opulent interiors embellished with arched doorways and Moroccan touches. And while the property is not on most first-time Morocco visitors’ itineraries, it can appeal to those in search of a resort with plenty of amenities.

The vast property hosts 92 pool villas done in a classic regional style. Each villa has a living room, separate bedroom, large bathroom and courtyards with plenty of room to relax. (Unfortunately, because the resort sits on flat ground, there are no sea views.) The beautifully and well-designed main building is home to three of the property’s four restaurants, including those serving Thai and Moroccan cuisine as well as bar-style plates. There is an excellent spa facility and workout center as well as a fantastic kids club.

An important caveat to note is that the property seems to cater mostly to Moroccan and French guests. While the gentleness and kindness of the eager staff is well received, visitors who do not speak French or Arabic may have trouble communicating.

Who Should Stay

The property is right for those needing space and value. Ideal for families, there are a limited number of two-bedroom villas. Those looking to stay in a resort within walking distance to restaurants and a town might not be happy in such a remote destination.

Getting There

Tamouda Bay is located 20 minutes by car from the UNESCO listed World Heritage site Tetouan, and a one-hour drive from Tangier. Most guests fly into Tangier International Airport.
