Taghazout / Morocco
SEAFRONT SURFCAMPF WITH BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR LOCATED ON THE PROMENADE OF TAGHAZOUT.
This small boutique hotel is a family owned local business. Be sure to be welcomed warmly. The design is handpicked from Katja, the wife of one of the brothers who run the WOW Surfhouse. Minimalistic but warm moroccan design paired with bright rooms and stunning terraces makes this little hideaway so special. The food is really good and the view of the sunset or surfers at Taghazout beach makes this a really special place.
