This flashy, horseshoe-shaped mansion is the height of bohemian boutique chic, if a bit Beverley Hills: in a garden of palm trees and flowers, each of the exceedingly large rooms is decorated in an ornate mixture of Moroccan and Art Deco styles. Each room also opens onto the pool's veranda, which is shared with the other guests. For true luxury, choose one of the huge Arabian tents tucked away in the gardens; each is an enormous, white-canvas, royal caïdal tent as used in times gone by for stately occasions—the stuff of fairy tales, with four-poster beds, sunken pools sprinkled with rose petals, and romantic lighting. The mansion was originally constructed for a French countess, who then decided to make it a luxury hotel. Staff is at your beck and call, and meals are served upon request. You can also eat at the exceedingly well-regarded Abyssinian restaurant next door or enjoy services at the sumptuous spa.
