Our favourite rooms
Suite 1 used to be where the man of the house received his wives. It has a marble sunken bath and walk-in power shower. Suite 3 has a sunken bath in black granite; the Red Suite is extremely romantic.
Framed by intricate mosaics, the 7m courtyard pool is a sparkling shade of emerald green.
Bright and airy Farnatchi Spa has two marble hammams with vaulted ceilings, restful Moroccan treatment rooms with shower facilities, and a menu of light and healthy snacks and lunches. Choose from eucalyptus-scented hammam experiences, massage treatments with essential oils, rejuvenating facials and mani-pedis. The spa uses local Ila organic products, including Argan oil.
Not a child-friendly property, owing to its open pool. One cot and baby bed available; confirm when booking.
