Westerners have been fascinated by Morocco since the middle of the 19th century. The country's vivid colors, dramatic light, and sensuous labyrinthine medinas drew painters; its exotic culture drew a generation of anglophone writers in the first half of the 20th century who thought that Morocco was a land of illicit pleasures and dubious mores. From the southern deserts to the Atlas Mountains to the wave-swept Atlantic coast, Morocco continues to draw travelers to increasingly sophisticated hotels and resorts who want a taste of the Maghreb and who take particular pleasure in the fact that North Africa is less than seven hours by plane from New York City.
