Towering over Casablanca with a view to a kill

“-Moneypenny, I told you I would take you to a nice place for dinner”

The Kenzi Tower Hotel in Casablanca, located in one of the city’s tallest buildings, offers the discreet traveller everything they can hope for: excellent service in several languages, well-groomed rooms and a number of bars and restaurants that are considered some of the best in Casablanca.

For a five star hotel, it is not exuberantly expensive and what you get is definitely worth the money you pay. Check out the Sens restaurant on the 27th floor where one can feast on some fantastic dishes (salmon teriyaki with chili mayonnaise is a samandthedunes favorite) while enjoying the impressive view over the city and the ocean.

The bar on the 28th floor Sky28 is under Jacques and Laurent Pourcel, the famous French chefs who have a few Michelin stars under their belts. Gourmet-wise, you will not be suffering here. Nor will you be suffering in the room after a fun night (or early morning) dancing to the DJ in the same bar.

You will be welcomed by a spacious bed, a flat-screen TV with numerous channels and in the morning choose between an avant-garde bathtub or an even funnier looking shower. And after checking out, have one for the road in the lobby bar, where you will be pampered and offered a fine selection of cigars, before catching a taxi to the airport.

As you know, we do have a soft spot for 007, so one thing for sure, good ol’ Bond would feel here right at home.
