Jardins d'Issil Marrakech (Sidi Abdallah Ghiat), Morocco

“A cluster of caïdal tents in the rugged countryside fringing Marrakech. Enchanting Moroccan interiors set a romantic tone with flowing drapes, candles and cushions. Dine on local dishes in the dappled shade of the aromatic gardens. True paradise!”

“French owners Patrick and Ghislaine have created an oasis of calm with 15 caïdal tents (think mini marquees) around a large infinity pool in scented gardens circled by mountains. Each tent has air-conditioning, sitting room, dressing room and en-suite tadelakt bathroom. There's also a private Hammam tent. Chef Fatima creates delicious local dishes served under awnings by the pool or in the appealing restaurant.”
