Scale of 90-100
Conveniently located within walking distance of the Djemaa el-Fna, this sumptuous palace was made possible by the King of Morocco’s unlimited budget and more than 1,000 master artisans. Accessible to staff by underground tunnels, the 53 one- to four-bedroom accommodations start at 1,500 square feet. Three-level Premier Riads feature mosaic-tiled entry courts, woodburning fireplaces, striking master baths with swirling inlaid marble and roof terraces with plunge pools and relaxation tents. The extravagant, airy spa contains a conservatory-like indoor pool and hammam. There is also an outdoor pool surrounded by plush, air-conditioned cabanas and mature gardens (including transplanted centuries-old olive trees). Dining options include Le Jardin for alfresco lunches and superlative La Grande Table Marocaine and La Table overseen by acclaimed chef Yannick Alléno.

Service that was incredibly attentive without being obsequious; the careful consideration of the guest experience from start to finish; the extraordinary craftsmanship of the palatial décor; the sumptuous restaurant; the sybaritic spa; the glamorous pool amid mature gardens; the vast and plush accommodations; the location within walking distance of the Djemaa el-Fna.
Checking out was a dagger to the heart.
