International hospitality company Hilton Hotels and Resorts has opened the Tangier Al Houara Resort and Spa – a palatial getaway in Tangier, Morocco.

The 304-key resort – the company's third property in Morocco – occupies 234 hectares of oceanfront land and boasts three swimming pools, as well as an 850 sq m spa comprising a jacuzzi, sauna, beauty salon, steam room, and fitness studio.

Other facilities include an 18-hole golf course – designed by Graham Marshall – and five restaurants and bars.

Architecturally, the resort's interior and exterior spaces incorporate numerous Arabesque motifs and draw on traditional Moroccan structures, such as riads and casbahs.

"We are excited to introduce Hilton Tangier Al Houara Resort & Spa to our growing brand portfolio," commented Vera Manoukian, senior vice president and global head at Hilton Hotels and Resorts.

She continued: "The opening of this property highlights our commitment to expanding in key destinations across the world, in the world's most sought-after destinations for guests who know that where they stay matters."

In a description of the project, The Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company – the developer for the scheme – said it was "designed to be lived in, experimented with, and above all relished in".
