Our favourite rooms
With monochrome mosaic tiles, burnt siena-coloured furnishings and the Atlas Mountains framed in your window, the 70sq m Atlas Suite is one of the most regal in the hotel. Be sure to order breakfast in your room, sit on the low chairs by the window and watch the ponies prance in the show at the Andalusian Pavilion. If a suite stretches just beyond your budget, the Classic rooms showcase old-school glamour, with cream and aubergine colour schemes, mosaic-tiled bathrooms and discreetly hidden tech.
Three. The main 80sq m heated infinity pool – lined with Guatemalan marble – runs through a gauntlet of neat rows of palm trees and day-beds, with views of the tree-framed hotel and the landscaped grounds. The spa has a two heated pools: one surrounded by white arches and a black day-bed filled gallery, and a 20sq m outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi.
You can’t ride the blue-blooded stallions on-site, but there’s plenty of horsing about to be found nearby. Pack some sturdy riding boots for saddling up, but don’t worry if you forget; the souks stock suitable attire.
