If it wasn't for all the sensually moulded curves in place of angles, The Luxury Travel Bible would swear Philippe Starck might have had a hand in designing Maison MK (although we know he didn't). Sexily spare but stacked with furniture pieces in interesting shapes, this 600 year old riad aims for right here, right now cool...and intimate. The TV cinema lounge is propped with a bed for two people. The massage room is dangerously dark with walls of charcoal polished tadelakt. In the rooms, beds float above their underlighting and i-Pods are pre-loaded with lounge music that streams through built-in speakers. It may be only six rooms big, but the ultra-hip rooftop lounge looks set for sixty plus to party. The only thing left to question, whilst sipping the mini bar Veuve in the deep tub-like bath, is what gives with the hotel rubber ducky here bathside amid all this groove?
The tear drop plunge pool in the middle of the courtyard that looks as if it is emerging from a fireplace.
