The five-star Hotel Sahrai, designed by the architect and designer Christophe Pillet, enjoys spectacular views of the largest medina in the Arab world, taking in twelve centuries of the city’s history in one fell swoop. An alternative to the shady isolation of the riads and the impersonal feel of the big resorts, its architecture on a human scale is a combination of tradition and contemporary style.
The Berbère Palace, Ouarzazate
  • Built in 1991, Le Berbère Palace opens the doors to the desert and its captivating landscapes.
