Morocco: L'Amphitrite Beach Hotel

It never crossed my mind that I would one day be able to visit Morocco. To me Morocco is a faraway land that I'd just visit through Google Earth and by looking at images online, but alas, work brought me there for a few days. I wasn't able to get around (at all) but I was pretty happy already that we were booked at a beach hotel. 

We stayed at L' Amphitrite Beach Hotel and my seatmate in the plane said that it's a very nice place, but mentioned that I should find the time to go to Casablanca. I loved my room's color scheme, so I took a photo to remember. 

Just a meter away from the bed is the balcony where you can take in the amazing beach front. It was my first time to see the Mediterranean Sea up close. Too bad I wasn't able to find time to wade in the sea shore. 

Good thing I had taken sunset photos when I arrived because I didn't have the time anymore. 

The hotel was lovely and my stay would probably have been better if I had my family around with me. Well maybe someday we'd all be able to go have a vacation in Morocco.

Sarangani Highlands

I had no idea where Avel was taking us last night for dinner. I admit I was a bit nervous because it was really dark outside and I couldn't trace where we were on the map (I really have an overactive imagination!). Anyway, when we finally got to Sarangani Highlands I instantly fell in love with the place.

The open air restaurant was really lovely. Check out our dinner set-up.

After we ordered food we decided to look around the place and we found a lot of lovely nooks.


This garden area overlooked the sea and was a really charming place. 

I was really surprised to find out that they had a hotel area and lots of rooms. And they also had an area where you can hold seminars/workshops.


And here's some of the sumptuous fresh food we had.


How I wish we just stayed at Sarangani Highlands for the rest of our trip!

Oh, good thing my dear friend Chelle reminded me... they also have the yummiest avocado shake!
