The DNA: Leave the world behind and enter the Royal Mansour hotel’s monumental gate after which almost four hectares of fragrant, manicured Moorish gardens await dotted with lily ponds and fountains. This opulent luxury hotel is an architectural masterpiece adorned with the finest zellij (geometric mosaic), carved cedarwood, stained glass, dripping stuccowork, beaten bronze and inlaid marquetry. If you want to leave this oasis behind, the hustle and bustle of Marrakech’ famous Djemaa El Fna square is just a 10-minute walk away.
