TODAY WE WHISK YOU AWAY to the palm trees and fountains of the Royal Mansour hotel in Marrakech, where grand archways and intricately laid tiles form enchanting patterns across the walls and floors and Carrara tabletops hold roses and orchids and the glistening waters of sundrenched pools await . . .
With views of the Koutoubia Moaque and Atlas Mountains, the Royal Mansour is a testament to traditional skills and local Moroccan design. Commissioned by King Mohammed VI, it required more than 1500 Moroccan artisans over the course of 4 years to build. So on this sunny Tuesday, take in the rose gold leaf walls and turquoise doors, terracotta riads and intricately carved plasterwork, the mosaics and cedar, and be transported to another world . . .The Lane]
