Palais Namaskar

Route de Bab Atlas, No. 88/69, Province Syba, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, 40 007, Morocco

You'll feel like incognito royalty at this dreamy resort, opened in 2012 in Marrakech's Palmery suburb, where you can wander through 12 acres of lush gardens and ponds before ducking into your own palace-style accommodation, many with Atlas mountain views. The 41 accommodations range from standard rooms (each with outdoor Jacuzzi) and four types of suites (some with fireplaces, terraces, or pools), to villas with private gardens and stately, multi-bedroom palaces. All are top-of-the-line with DVD-integrated Bang & Olufsen plasma TVs, Nespresso machines, rain showers, and the plushest bedding, plus chic, contemporary interiors. On-site dining includes a French-influenced gourmet restaurant, a stylish lounge for tea and sweets, and Nomad Bar for cocktails, sheeshas, and panoramic views. At the Feng Shui–inspired spa, four indoor-outdoor treatment cabins and two couples' suites (each with private hammam) set the stage for a menu of holistic Ila services. The hotel's bespoke "experience book" offers everything from trekking in the High Atlas and overnights in the desert to culinary-, culture-, and adventure-themed activities—if you can bear to leave the property.
