Rising like a Byzantine, 14th-century Kasbah from the Palmery and surrounded by 10 acres of manicured grounds, this Relais & Chateaux hotel is the last word in sumptuous, escape-it-all luxury. From the moment its giant wooden doors swing open to reveal the central courtyard, restaurant, and swimming pool beyond, everything is designed to impress: ruins to explore at the bottom of the garden, an organic herb garden, an art gallery and library. The underground hammam
and spa is available to guests and nonguests (by appointment). Prices include local airport transfers.
