I stayed at SunDesk… here’s what it’s like.
As soon as I was back in London after 9 months of travelling – I knew I had to leave again. Too many people racing around the city, overpriced sandwiches from Pret, and the rain didn’t exactly lure me back.
But I didn’t know where to go. All I wanted was somewhere hot, chilled, and with good internet.
Then I stumbled across SunDesk. And immediately I was sold.
So, what is SunDesk?
- The first co-working space in the lil surf town of Taghazout, Morocco.
- Aiming to create the “perfect environment” for inspiration & focus.
- For students, entrepreneurs, and professionals who want to travel and work.
Ummm….. YES PLEASE.
But with only 14 rooms available, it gets booked up – fast. I spotted ONE spot available for a week, so immediately I booked it. Sometimes I can be a little rash, but I hoped it would all fall into place…
So, here’s my review of Sundesk…
The co-working space
Every desk has an ocean view. Safe to say – this shits all over London offices.
Set over two floors: one more ‘professional’ with desks, and a private Skype room. And the other’s more relaxed – on the terrace, with sofas.
Plus, there’s an inflatable ball to make work more fun. And hands down, the strongest internet I’ve had in the whole of Taghazout.
I gotta mention though- there was a power cut, where ALL wifi in Taghazout went down for 3 hours. But if you buy a local SIM with data, you can hotspot your phone and never be without internet. And that costs less than 5 euros.
Chill out area
When you want to relax, you can head on up to the roof terrace. And chill out to this panoramic view of the sea.
Food & Drink
There’s a huge buffet breakfast every day, that filled me up so much I skipped lunch multiple times.
Tasty AF Moroccan omelette, fruit salad, yoghurts, bread & jams, coffee, mint tea, etc.
And they sometimes cook an amazing, authentic Moroccan lunch for everyone too – including meat & veggie tagines and salads.
Their chefs are GREAT.
I stayed in the standard private double. Comfy bed, big mirror.
It’s SUPER, super chilled.
If you want crazy party, go somewhere else. But if you want somewhere you can get your head down & be productive, there’s very few distractions. For me, to work – it was perfect.
But I’ve also made friends with locals through surfing… and they’re mostly who I go out with. (But that’s because I prefer to experience places like a local, than hanging out with too many tourists)
If you want to book…
Head to their website, see what’s available – and book!
Try to book in advance as they do big discounts if you stay for a month or two. You can get a private room for €17 a night – which is obviously much more expensive than a hostel, but not too spenny if you want a private room.
There’s a reason why people book for months at a time. Cos it’s pretty bloody dreamy.
