Mandarin Oriental Marrakesh
In a city associated with sensory overload, the Mandarin Oriental—set amid 50 acres of olive trees, roses, and palms—is a breath of fresh air. Instead of zellige tiles and gilded accents, the 54 villas have riad-inspired courtyards with all-white furniture and heated plunge pools. But they still feel Moroccan. Inside, you’ll find Berber rugs, silver tea sets, and steam showers. The nine suites have Atlas Mountain views, and even the smallest clock in at 1,450 square feet. Elsewhere on site, there’s an organic garden that supplies 94 (yes, 94!) varieties of tomatoes and assorted vegetables to three restaurants. If all else fails to soothe your senses, order a nightcap and stargaze outside your villa as the scent of jasmine wafts by on the breeze.
