Style notes

Owned by de­signer Jasper Con­ran, the ho­tel com­bines Moroc­can crafts­man­ship with Con­ran’s own col­lec­tion of art, textiles and an­tiques to cre­ate a ho­tel that feels like a pri­vate home. White­washed walls, high zouak (painted cedar wood) ceil­ings, float­ing voile drapes and rest­ful shades cap­ture the clas­sic el­e­gance of 1930s ho­tels. Shut­tered win­dows fin­ished with fil­i­gree iron­work look out on to the court­yard gar­den, where fig and le­mon trees sur­round a foun­tain of zel­lige tile work.

This his­toric 19th-cen­tury riad, orig­i­nally part of a Moroc­can palace, is in the heart of the me­d­ina, and com­prises five spa­cious suites sur­round­ing a court­yard gar­den and pool.
