Wander among twenty acres of gardens at La Mamounia (from $664), which just completed a $160 million renovation in September 2009. All rooms boast traditional Moroccan stucco carvings and hand-laid mosaics, but ask for one of 36 "deluxe" rooms for views of the twelfth-century Koutoubia mosque.
Lounge on high-end silks and yellow leather couches at Marrabahia, an eight-room complex designed by former Parisian fabric maven Laure Felisa (from $148). Have complimentary fresh-baked croissants and coffee on the rooftop café before a swim in the secluded courtyard pool. Or bring fifteen friends and rent the entire space for $1,150 a night.
Picnic in the olive groves at Peacock Pavilions (from $125), designed and owned by an American expat couple. Request the Atlas Pavilion, where each of the two rooms has its own fireplace and private 400-square-foot roof terrace.
