Idris Elba and model Sabrina Dhowre tied the knot on Friday at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakesh in Morocco, after getting engaged in February 2018.
Here are some details about the place:
The capital of Morocco, Marrakech Marches to its own beat – its manic and hip and has so many good things, it almost always falls under the best places to visit list. In fact, during his visit in thw1 1930’s and 40’s, the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared Marrakech “the last paradise on Earth” and “the loveliest spot in the world”.
The best time to visit Marrakech is May. And while there are a myriad of options to choose from for your stay, nothing quite beats the Riad which are traditionally decorated family homes. Riads are arranged around a central courtyard filled with plants, trickling fountains and other eye-catching water features. Totally worth the stay, prices range from well in your budget to totally out of it.
All streets eventually lead to the legendary plaza – a psychedelic space where acrobats, snake charmers, fortune-tellers and Berber musicians compete for your attention. Drummers, street performers, men in flowing robes offering a game of chance – the place is a complete pandemonium which reaches its peak at sunset. With the onset of the night, dozens of food stalls appear and travellers tuck into tagine, a slow-cooked clay pot casserole, rounded off with flaky pastries and mint tea.
Imlil is an invigorating antidote to the bustle of the bazaars. Nestled in the folds of the mighty Atlas Mountains, 1,800 metres above sea level, the village is a popular trekking centre and trailhead for assaults on Mount Toubkal, northern Africa’s highest peak. If that all sounds too strenuous, find yourself a cafe with an outside table and watch the Berbers go by.
