It List - The Best New Hotels: Taj Palace Marrakesh

Courtesy Taj Palace Marrakech

City: Taj Palace Marrakesh, Morocco

The Taj brand’s Moroccan pièce de résistance was seven years in the making, and its sheer grandeur raises the bar for a city already gifted with impressive hotels. A mix of Asian, Moroccan, and Ottoman influences is on display in the 161 rooms; there are Swarovski-bedazzled curtains, mirrored and frescoed ceilings, hothouse-palette Indian textiles, and a mint’s worth of gold leaf, all juxtaposed with hundreds of antique Berber rugs. What we loved best: the yoga classes at the spacious pavilion, complete with a terrace and a fireplace. tajhotels.com. $$$$
