Most luxurious hotel in Marrakesh

It's not La Mamounia and it is probably the most luxurious oasis on earth (hint: it's in the Palmerie)... and if you've been lucky enough to stay in a pool suite there, you know exactly which place I'm talking about.

Let the package tours keep filling up La Mamounia so this gem is left a secret.

ok, you're right. I actually want a few people to go there so it never closes. It's the Palais Rhoul and it the most exotic, beatufiul and romantic place you could ever stay. A pool suite there is pricey, but a fraction of what it would cost if something like that existed in Europe. If you can't afford to stay there, at least go for dinner - illuminated by candles along the side of the turquoise pool.

My guess was the Aman resort, so I'm glad you gave up your secret.

You could say that Amanjena and Palais Rhoul are very similar, except that Palais Rhoul is more intimate (only 8 suites), less well-known (almost exclusively known to high-end French clients) and a better price. Also if you have a pool suite your mansion-like room opens directly onto one of the most beautiful pools I've ever seen.

Very good stuff. I stayed at La Mamounia last fall which was fine, but wished we had stayed at a luxurious riad instead. The front deak clerks were like bad French Waiters. Oy.

I like the look of Jnane Tamsna and there was an interesting recent profile of the owner in the NY Times Thursday style section.

Has anyone stayed there?

My impression is that it is particularly popular with Europeans. I'm interested because I'm always looking for places to add onto my trips to visit family in England.

Thanks
