Top Ten Luxury
Riad Farnatchi, Marrakech

Small and impossibly chic, if this riad feels like a private home, it's because it was originally built as a retreat for family and friends. Thankfully for us its creator was award winning British hotelier Jonathan Wix and he couldn't resist opening it up to guests. Despite its size, Wix has stacked the riad with hotel style services that range from beauty treatments to in-room dining. There is a marble hammam, heated pool with underwater jet as well as underfloor heating in rooms. Swathes of fabrics and intimate lighting add to the understated magic of individually decorated whitewashed suites. Wix has approached the design with considered restraint, taking his hand off hold only in the dining room where quilted white lounges mould against darkly patterned wallpaper.
