The blue waters of the sea shimmer in the afternoon sun, as you stand staring out at the waves. The white sand is soft and inviting, radiating the warmth of the sun under your bare feet. The resort hotel behind you is a picture perfect escape from the outside world filled with delicate luxury and incredible service. Your opportunities for relaxation and/or indulgence are endless: golf, tennis, watersports, the spa, French haute cuisine. It would be understandable if you thought you were standing on the Cote D'Azur in southern France, but when you think back to the sensual colors, sounds, and smells from the vibrant market town you visited you remember that you are in Agadir, Morocco, and staying at the resplendent Sofitel Agadir Royal Bay Resort. The inviting resort, in this most inviting of settings, brings Africa and the Middle East to the shores of the sea, a captivating combination that has drawn visitors for centuries. The Sofitel Agadir Royal Bay Resort is a true oasis on the sea.
