Hilton Opens Third Moroccan Property, Right on the Beach


Hilton is ready to rock The Kasbah (or very close to it)—the company has opened its third property in Morocco, Hilton Tangier Al Houara Resort & Spa.

Amenities of the 304-room hotel include an 850 square meter spa, featuring treatment rooms, a beauty salon, hair stylist, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and 24/7 gym. The on-site kids club includes two outdoor pools.

Aesthetically, each room fuses Moroccan and international design, with private balconies overlooking either the Atlantic Ocean or 11 hectares of garden.
