Each is individually designed with panache to include varied amenities, from sitting areas and dining rooms to expansive terraces and fireplaces. Step outside and pleasing aromas of citrus and exotic herbs envelop your senses as you stroll through the palm-laden gardens flanked with blooming bougainvillea.

Beneath a billowy garden tent, traditional Moroccan food is also served, infused with sultry spices. The resort offers room service and a bar and lounge for imbibing. The sparkling swimming pool, a refreshing and opulent outpost with a few dozen lounge chairs and a handful of private cabanas, is inviting any time of day. Spa treatments can be administered poolside, in-suite or in a traditional treatment room. For added recreation, take a swing on the tennis courts and putting green.
