Marrakech hotels

The light had the preternatural purity which give a foretaste of mirage: It was the light in which magic becomes real, and which helps to understand how, to people living in such an atmosphere, the boundary between fact and dream perpetually fluctuates.

The look and feel of this Aman resort was inspired by nearby Berber villages. It's a splurge-worthy oasis just outside Marrakech (20-minutes from the airport), on the road to Ouarzazate, the gateway to the Sahara Desert. There's a library, restaurant, pool, spa, and access to biking, hiking, and golf.

A 300-year-old palace has been turned into an intimate boutique hotel — only three rooms and two suites — that feels like a really nice home. A desert tent is pitched on the rooftop patio, and there's a fire pit for barbecuing. Book out the place and throw a party; the hotel is ready to arrange snake charmers, musicians, and storytellers as entertainment.

Live colorfully in this charming boutique riad. Traditional fixtures are mixed with contemporary furniture pieces, and it's a refreshing touch. Owner Vanessa Branson curates the riad's art installations. Bring a designer maxidress and a Paul Bowles novel. Leave the golf clubs at home. This is not a place for Starwood points.

Remember the episode "Jet Setters" from Mad Men? When Don Draper finds himself in a mysterious, sun-drenched villa full of sexy bohemian weirdos? Fellah is that place, with a community outreach program, cocktails, and the Atlas Mountains in a background. It's located just outside Marrakech but is well worth the effort.

An absolutely charming riad in a terrific location. Gorgeous courtyards and delightful cooking school. Do not miss the pool club just outside town: It's the best of both worlds.

La Mamounia

  • Medina, Timeless, $$$$ $$$$
  • Avenue Bab Jdid
  • Marrakech, 40040
  • +212-524-38-8600

A sprawling estate — at once old-world and freshly modern, familiar and exotic, real and surreal. There's a movie-like quality to the grounds, as if it's suspended in its own space-time continuum, where everything (sun rays, the scent of orange, the ripple of a pool wave) moves slowly and deliberately. Service, outfits, dining, and spa treatments are impeccable.

La Sultana

  • Timeless, $$$$ $$$
  • 403 Rue de la Kasbah

An elegant and feminine complex of riads. Set up your own Kodak moments among the stunning drapes, chandeliers, hanging gardens, fountains, and courtyards.

You'll feel like the houseguest of a very important person. The once-private riad is now a 27-room Relais & Chateau property down an unassuming corridor close to the Koutoubia mosque. Bedrooms (some with a private terrace) open onto inner courtyards for peace and quiet in the middle of it all.

You can't afford to stay here. No joke! You can't. But you really, really should see this place. It is mind-blowingly designed, and the restaurants are white tablecloth and then some. Their private hamam suites will transport you to another time and place.
