THE STORY SO FAR …
Opening PARADIS PLAGE Surf Yoga & Spa Resort has not come about by accident. Everything started there 50 years ago. We are in the 60s and already at Imi Ouaddar, the site named Paradise Plage hosts the Kabbage family beach holidays during weekends or holidays. A tradition that has been passed down through generations.
Kabbage Abbes, one of the key men in the economic life of Souss, was among the first to invest in hotels in Agadir, opening in 1975, the Europa Hotel. Khalid Kabbage his son has developed a group which became a leader in Morocco in the field of fisheries and fish processing. An entrepreneur at heart, he was always in search of new investments to develop.
It's due to his meeting with François Payot, head of Rip Curl Europe, that the project PARADIS PLAGE Surf Yoga & Spa Resort was born. Khalid Kabbage has entrusted the implementation to his eldest daughter, Naima, and her husband, Vincent, a young dynamic and passionate couple. Three years of work were needed to sprout a unique resort in Morocco, especially under the leadership of Sergio Castaneda Beltran Spanish landscaper who signed the arrangement of green spaces and beach.
All plants used were selected from the regional species. The site was designed and conducted with respect for the environment. To reduce electricity consumption, buildings have been designed to take a maximum advantage of the natural sunlight. Each suite has its own air conditioning and its own water heater. The selective sorting of household waste is organized prior to discharge. The wastewater is treated by the sewage plant at the resort before being re-used for watering gardens.
To implement local skills, all the amenities of PARADIS PLAGE Surf Yoga & Spa Resort were entrusted to local companies and regional artisans. The entire furniture was manufactured between Agadir and Marrakech. Weaving, pottery and other fixtures have been made in the pure tradition of Moroccan expertise, as the paintings which are the work of local artists.
