Le Casablanca Hotel

With smart white facades and decadent interiors, Le Casablanca is an urban oasis. Seamlessly blending Moroccan style and art-deco design, the retreat feels more like a splendid private residence, dressed in rich tonal reds, gleaming chandeliers and lashings of gold

Rooms are similarly glamorous yet homely with soft-sinking pillows (choose from a pillow menu), grandiose headboards and Italian marble bathrooms.

The spa feels just as decadent with its own traditional hammam and sensory pool. Choose from an extensive menu including custom-made bio-electro facials and purifying black soap scrubs.

Adjacent to the pool and the garden, the Terasse Jasmin offers breakfast through to dinner among the foliage and under lantern chandeliers. For a more formal affair, Le Brasserie creates duck dishes flavoured with local spices and honey roasted racks of lamb. In the morning, The Pavilion feels like a Parisian patisserie with pretty cakes and croissants displayed at breakfast.
