MURANO Urban Resort
Douar Abiad, La Palmeraie
Tel: 05 24 32 70 00
Rates: 2,900–8,500dh
One of the latest additions to the Palmeraie is the brainchild of star designer Christiane Derory, the lady behind the flamboyant Parisian MURANO Resort. Located directly adjacent to Les Deux Tours, it is arguably one of the region’s most audacious properties – a splash of flamboyant Parisian chic set within three hectares of traditional palm, olive and tangerine trees. The reception area encompasses a lobby, restaurant, bar and meeting room – and a 200m2 terrace that offers views over the grounds. It’s here that the style really stands out, in the shape of a 32-metre red enamel pool surrounded by red and white sun loungers and four villas that contain the MURANO’s 30 suites. Each building has its own pool and each room is big and sexy, incorporating four poster beds, marble bathrooms and oodles of mod cons like coffee machines, flatscreen TVs and iPod docks. All the rooms have great vistas over the gardens and the Atlas, and also come with open fireplaces and large private terraces. The restaurant serves delicious French-Moroccan food and DJs play tasteful music by the pool at the weekends. There’s a spa in the pipeline too, which will make the MURANO an even more hedonistic option.
