Hundreds of artisans worked on the hotel site during construction, creating a world-class medina property that was commissioned by King Mohammed VI to house his personal guests. A total of 53 riads boast one to four bedrooms, a private roof terrace with a plunge pool – some of them even with a Bedouin tent – an open fire and a private hammam. Beyond the traditional bathing experience, the spa technician ushers guests through a dreamlike white-marble world that makes use of only the finest products. Surrounded by quiet courtyards of colourful mosaics, an underground tunnel system leading to individual riads is used by staff for the most discreet service. A cigar lounge, library and kids' club are additional highlights.
