Tel: 212 6121 0549
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Tucked away in the Palmeraie district, this private estate, whose Swedish owners recently opened it to the public, is a literal oasis. The 12-acre grounds include an organic garden, a tennis court, two lap pools, orange and olive groves, a jogging track, a yoga studio, and four residential structures, each outfitted with numerous lounging areas. Every guest room has found its inspiration in a different Asian or African countrythe Mali room, for example, is furnished with rich mud cloths, cut-brass lamps, gleaming raw-silk curtains, and wooden masks. Collectively, they're proof that a Moroccan hotel can feel integrated without relying on an overabundance of, say, tiles (though there is lovely tilework here). Overseeing the polished staff of 30 is the efficient manager, Salma Bennani, who leaves guests a take-home bag of full-sized bottles of the property's citrus-scented bath amenities.2009 Hot List
