Scale of 90-100
Dramatically restored 14-suite mud-walled kasbah (medina) in Skoura, an exotic-feeling former caravan crossroads. The original building houses atmospheric Junior Suites with fireplaces; additional Superior Suites a short walk away through well-tended gardens have private patios, smooth rammed-earth walls, fireplaces, library-like sitting rooms and impressive baths capped by window-punctured domes. (No in-room phones or televisions.) Plush central lounge for complimentary drinks and small spa with hammam. No main restaurant or bar; meals are taken beside the inviting outdoor pool, on a roof terrace or in one of several candlelit kasbah chambers. Unforgettable excursions around the palmeraie (palm grove) of Skoura and to rocky river gorges surrounded by desert can be arranged. Highly attentive, personalized service.

The beautiful and mysterious atmosphere of the main kasbah building; the sense of living like old Moroccan nobility; the highly attentive service; the consistently fine food; the unforgettable excursions.
The spa was pretty but unprofessional, with a lukewarm hammam and no face cradle on the massage table.
