In 2020 Lotte and Rachid started an adventure that would become much more challenging than ever expected. This Belgian Moroccon couple, brought together by travelling, was getting ready to open their ViaVia in Marrakech when the world locked down.
Lotte met Rachid during one of her trips to Morocco. That meeting turned out to be great love and a turning point in their lives. She exchanged her Brussels for his Marrakech, they got a beautiful son Nizar and opened their ViaVia Joker Travellers Café. By combining their travel experiences, enthusiasm and strengths, they are able to create a project with a positive impact, as social entrepreneurs. In the first place for their employees and for the neighborhood where the ViaVia café is located, but of course also for their guests, whom they want to give an authentic, unique experience on their city trip in Marrakech.
The ViaVia Travellers Cafe Marrakech is one of the new spots that has been added to the ViaVia worldwide network. Its opening was delayed from April 2020 to November 2020 due to the strict lockdown. Meanwhile, the ViaVia café has grown into a place for locals and tourists alike who come to enjoy the beautiful architecture, the delicious food, the lush (indoor) gardens and the cozy markets you find in Marrakech.
Lotte and Rachid are looking forward to welcome you in their café: “ViaVia Marrakech is a place to taste the world, to meet people and to discover the city. This café and restaurant is decorated with traditional moroccan crafts and has its own unique touch. In our place you find cosy spots for a tête à tête as well as large tables for big families and groups. The rooftop terrace gives you a nice view over the Mellah and Kasbah area and of course you spot the Koutoubia mosque. We serve different drinks and dishes inspired by world flavors. ViaVia is also your partner to explore Marrakech. We offer city tours and activities.”
