Riad Malika

29, Arsat Aouzal, Bab Doukkala, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

The rambling, relaxing Malika was one of the first riads to reinvent itself in the 1990s, and owner Jean-Luc Lemée and his English-speaking wife are full of anecdotes about Morocco. They've created an exuberantly styled collection of travel mementoes and Art Deco relics, mixed with 20th-century retro furniture. The winter lounge is one of the coziest in Marrakesh, and there are spacious two-room suites ideal for families, as well as a decent-size patio pool. The whole effect is a lovingly curated, quirky collage of styles and eras—sculpted plaster cornices, marble walls, gold-leaf ceilings, and a terrace with tumbling bougainvillea.
