Our favourite rooms
14, the apartment at the top, has its own terrace and swimming pool. Room 6 has a big living room and is a beautiful light space. Room 3 has a private garden.
A dip in the hotel's 34m pool feels rather dramatic – spotlit palm trees line each side and the hotel's crenellated façade presides over one end. There are plenty of day-beds to stretch out on too.
Ksar Char-Bagh has its own herb garden and farm, with wheat for fresh bread, their own olive oil, and orchard fruit to make jam.
Not a child-friendly property, but cots available free of charge, and babysitting, 30€ for 4 hours.
