This riad has an unprepossessing front door, but step through and you enter into a hotel of chic, understated luxury. Moody lamp and candlelight keep it darkly sexy at night, but Noir D'Ivoire is designed for all-hours comfort. In the library squat white sofas by the fireplace ask you to curl up. On the roof terrace more white cushioned comfort abounds inside the curtained, carved wood pavilion. The same kind of roof top setting can be found accompanied by a private Jacuzzi attached to the three master suites. The double sun beds are perfect for hot nights under the stars. There's a pool, hammam and even a gym to work out in. However, The Luxury Travel Bible skilfully eschews anything involving sweat gear in favour of shopping laps around the souk.
The moulded tadelakt bedhead in the Master Zebra Suite and the embossed metallic twin basins giving bathrooms just the right amount of shine.
