Fodor's Expert Review Palais Khum

2, Derb el Henaria, off Rue Dar el Bacha, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco Fodor's Choice

This exquisite, Italian-owned boutique riad opened in 2014 just near the Dar el Bacha Royal residence on a street filled with antique dealers and quality boutiques. The riad itself features gorgeous interiors that blend European, Italian, and Moroccan influences. The 11 rooms and suites are arranged around the central hexagonal atrium, which pours light into the central patio. On the ground floor there are cozy alcoves for reading, an elegant restaurant, and a glassed-in swimming pool that opens to a cloistered inner courtyard. The superior Dar El Bacha suite is simply stunning with a huge fireplace, oriental rugs, antique furnishings, and a large private terrace. Modern artworks feature throughout, as well as cool, retro-style furnishings mixing contemporary and traditional elements. Rooms are spacious; each has an individual theme and enormous marble bathroom. The roof terrace has comfortable shaded seating areas and a dining area.
