Still wondering where to go for the summer holidays? I wasn’t, but this 5-star Morrocan palace, that just opened last April in the Palmeraie of Marrakesh, makes me reconsider. Located almost next door to the Taj, the luxury Palais Namaskar is boasting 41 suites, villas and palaces. Renowned French-Algerian designer, and former associate of Philippe Stark, Imaad Rahmouni is behind the exquisite architecture, which follows Feng Shui principles. The hotel blends Oriental look and contemporary interior design, enhanced by subtle Moorish and Andalusian touches. Soothing taupe-toned rooms, deep carpets, heavy damask fabrics and bespoke Murano chandeliers, everything contributes to the sense of peace and exclusivity. Eighty percent of the furnishing was in fact custom-made for the palace, down to tea glasses served by the pool. Prepare to feast your eyes!
