Marrakech is very hot in the summer but it is actually quite nice, we take it slow, relax by our pool or go to the country clubs outside town. And we take small ocean breaks (you can read about our previous ocean breaks HERE, HERE and HERE). This time we went back to coastal town Essaouira to enjoy some waves and the fresh air. We have been to this funky, bo-ho chic lazy little town many times before and we always enjoy it. Essaouira is (very) laid back and easy going. Essaouira attracts a lot of surfer and perhaps a more bohemian crowd than Marrakech which is very cool and there are also some really great restaurants here.
We have previously stayed in the medina of Essouira but this time we made the stylish boutique hotel Villa Anouk, located on the hills outside town with stunning views, our home for a few days. We found the most amazing and totally private unspoiled beach around the corner with miles and miles of white sand and great waves. Villa Anouk is the creation of former New York star stylist Anouk Beguery, who is a dear friend and also a client of our communication firm Red City PR. We actually created her logo, graphical identity, web page, social media strategies and photo shoots. It is a stunning luxury hotel with the most amazing beldi chic interiors.

Red City PR designed the logo, graphical identity, web site and also did the photo shoots and social media strategies for Villa Anouk, we sure love this logo and symbol that reflects the spirit of Villa Anouk.
