“Well-known architect Charles Boccara was involved in the design of this chic retreat and the result is a sophisticated marriage of Moroccan style and European design sensibilities. Made up of two riads joined into one by a bridge over a small alleyway, each room is unique; a spa, hammam and jacuzzi will help you to unwind and the restaurant serves excellent Moroccan and Mediterranean food.”
