You’ll un­der­stand why Ho­tel Sahrai’s name means ‘magic’ the minute you step into this glam­orous for­mer palace. A strik­ing blend of his­toric Moor­ish de­sign and chic min­i­mal­ism, it’s an un­usual and thrilling home-away-from-home in this sto­ried city.

The glo­ri­ous views and light-flooded spa­ces al­low for ro­mance, ad­ven­ture or re­lax­ation, so break­fast like a queen (the pas­tries are es­pe­cially dreamy), then head for the sights or re­lax by the in­fin­ity pool. Come evening, the hip rooftop is the place to be, fol­lowed by din­ner at the gourmet Moroc­can or in­ter­na­tional restau­rant.

An ex­clu­sive Givenchy spa is one of the jew­els in this crown, and ser­vice is sen­sa­tional at every turn. As for lo­ca­tion, the Sahrai is just a 10-minute drive from the Me­d­ina, and within easy reach of every ma­jor at­trac­tion, not to men­tion the fab­u­lous shop­ping.
