Our favourite rooms
The rooms in the main house are themed – our favourite is the Café Chocolat, featuring upholstery made from vintage coffee grain sacks. If you’re looking for space, the main Suite has plenty of room and a generous terrace, as well as a wrought-iron four-poster bed, leather Chesterfields and a (rather intriguing) basket of violins. The Pavilion rooms are more private and contemporary, designed according to colour themes and featuring day beds and sunken baths on the roofs, topped off with soaring domed ceilings.
The outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by palm trees, terracotta plant pots and cast-iron sculptures by the locally based Alain Gerez. There are wrought iron sunbeds for solo sunbathers as well as double day beds for honeymooners. An outdoor bar next to the boules court serves refreshing drinks; on the other side of the hotel, manicured gardens are bursting with white roses.
Bring bags of energy for souk searching, but you can leave your sunhat at home – they’re ready and waiting on the sun loungers.
You can have manicures, pedicures and massages in your room. Common areas are wheelchair-accessible. Each Sunday there's a poolside brunch with music – nudge the owners if it gets a little loud – which is open to guests (including children and pets).
Kids are welcome, and some rooms are able to accommodate a single bed and cot. The restaurant doesn’t have a kids’ menu, but provides highchairs and is happy to heat up baby food or adapt its grub for little Smiths.
