Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche hotel an ode to Casablanca the contemporary

Luxury-Hotel-Casablanca-Morocco-09

Luxury French hotel brand Sofitel has announced the opening of its first address in Casablanca, the Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche.

Moroccan modernity grows into a new art de vivre in this 21st-century maison des arts, which is positioned in the centre of the business district, in the shade of the magnificent Hassan II Mosque.

The luxury hotel brand now has a collection of eight beautiful hotels in Morocco in the most beautiful destinations of the country. Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche enjoys a strategic position and its charismatic architecture sets the hotel aside from other hotels in this vibrant business city.

Fascinated by the huge variety of architectural styles it contains, the Belgian architect Patrick Génard was keen to produce a worthy tribute to the White City. Decorated with stylised zellij, the hotel’s distinctive glass facades surround an establishment which is both transparent yet protective, fluid and intimate, warm and luxurious, whose interior decor was carefully planned by Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet.

The luxury Moroccan hotel offers a choice of three restaurants. The restaurant l’Arabesque combines Moroccan flavours with the skill of French cuisine. L’Atelier d’Orient invites you to discover the most authentic and refined Moroccan traditions. The Bar Casart is a night and day lounge dedicated to art, where the paintings and sculptures blend perfectly with the decor, including the huge fresco of René Caussanel’s piece ‘Jaune Soleil’.

The penthouse at the luxury Moroccan hotel blends into Casablanca’s night-time landscape. Located on the roof of the Tour Blanche, the penthouse is a prestigious villa with private access. It has a large teak terrace, outdoor jacuzzi, a private dining room, a statuesque carved wooden table next to the fireplace, a butler and private chef. The penthouse is the very essence of the legendary casaoui nocturnal lifestyle.
