There are five-star hotels, and then there’s the Royal Mansour. A magnificent collection of riads set among 12 acres of exquisite, fragrant gardens, it was designed by King Mohammed VI; absolutely no expense was spared in its creation, including the warren of tunnels for staff to service the riads without disturbing guests. The Grand Riad is ‘a medina within a medina’ at 19,375 sq ft spread across three floors, including a sensational roof terrace. It has three lavish bedrooms, each with a walk-in dressing room, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a living room with a bar, lounge area, cinema room, gym, staff accommodation, Moroccan hammam and the 24/7 services of a butler. The rooftop is spectacular in terra cotta and mosaics, and the riad has a plunge pool, Bedouin tent and an open fire.
