The View Agadir will be retaining Moroccan and cultural authenticity, yet redefining the hospitality experience in the region for the hip, eco-conscious, epicurean traveller when the hotel officially opened for business.
Located on the Atlantic coast and with direct access to the most picturesque sandy beach of Agadir, the latest addition to the View brand – The View Agadir will open its doors on the 1st March 2024, and is set to raise the bar of Moroccan hospitality in the region.
Since the opening of the first View hotel in 2017, the brand has re-defined the luxury travel experience in Morocco, with an emphasis on both elegance and authenticity and traditions blending with the uber-modern.
Inspiring a guest’s mind, body and senses is a core part of The View’s DNA. All properties are in destinations with iconic or breath-taking views. Elsewhere, this is reflected in its neo-Moroccan and world gastronomy created by award-winning and Michelin star chefs, art and design inspired by the Moroccan culture, décor in the rooms crafted by local artisans, Moroccan tea-rituals and a vast space in its AMAYA spa for hammams.
The emphasis to work with local co-operatives, yet not sacrificing advanced eco-practices, ensures The View is in touch with the ever evolving needs of the luxury traveller. This is further demonstrated by the importance given to the personalised and bespoke service provided to each guest’s wellness.
Guest experience is paramount at The View, and this is expressed by personalisation for each guest. Welcomed by a traditional ceremonial tea ritual, they are then provided with a familiarization of the hotel’s expansive facilities – the wellness and fitness sanctuary, The AMAYA Spa, a vast space of 1500 m2 offering state-of-the-art facilities; the top-class international restaurants and bars; sporting activities and excursions; access to the hotel’s undulating private beach, and of course an introduction to the diverse range of workshops, which allow guests to untap into their creativity and learn new experiences.
A variety of epicurean, art and therapeutic workshops are available – including yoga, pottery, painting and meditation classes.
For corporate and conference guests, the brand has also built a reputation for providing the most advanced technology for business meetings, conferences and events.
Fitness and Wellness Sanctuary
The AMAYA Spa is The View’s stunning wellness and fitness area. Forward-thinking designs, provide guests with a luxurious and tranquil ambiance, where guests can relax and take in the serene surroundings. Besides AMAYA Spa’s striking interiors, carefully curated treatments are personalised, with a holistic approach that work to connect nature with science. Exclusive spa rituals restore and rebalance, focusing on emotional and physical wellbeing, leaving guests notably re-energized. And, adhering to traditional values, guests are encouraged to embrace the ancient ritual of the Moroccan Hammam which includes an extensive menu of remedies.
Design: ocean retreat/ sea & Bohemian
The design of the Agadir property has drawn inspiration from a register of nomadic codes influenced by Moroccan culture.
The patterns adorning many of the featured textiles are of rich significance representing friendship, family happiness and hospitality.

The hotel prioritises buying and working with local artisans, cooperatives and businesses that are also responsible and ethical about the environment.
Mr Salah-Eddine BENHAMMANE at The View Agadir and Director South Region of Regional Tourism Counsel of Agadir comments: “This is an exciting time for the region and marks a new era for hospitality in Agadir”.
He stated further, “With the rise of far more luxury travellers visiting the city, one of the biggest challenges for the hospitality industry has been how to accommodate their evolving and sophisticated needs, embracing the culture, whilst not compromising on their lifestyle expectations”.
“The View Agadir embodies the authenticity of the region, not just a token Moroccan painting or sculpture. Guests can immerse themselves in the region’s culture and customs, whilst enjoying the highest standards in gastronomy and wellbeing – which are set in elegant and stylish surroundings, without the chintz or bling”, he said.
“Our approach to eco-practices is progressive and the investment in state-of-the-art technology means guests receive a far more strategic and personalised approach to their needs whilst away”, he concluded
The decision to launch the third flagship hotel in Agadir, reflects the bigger picture of how the city has changed.
In recent years, Agadir has evolved from the well-trodden family and surfer beach resort to a cosmopolitan and hip mecca for the luxury and high net worth traveller, as well as the creative and arts crowd from around the world, and is more reminiscent of Agadir in the 1970s.
With the customs of old blending with the modern lifestyle, the city has seen in recent years top-rated restaurants open, headed up by international chefs with a heritage in fine dining and contemporary cuisine, yet even with the buzz of this coastal metropolis, it manages to retain a more intimate feel than Morocco’s larger cities.
