A stone's throw from the Merena Gardens and the famous Medina, the Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech opened June 16 on 40 acres of lush gardens. It's a modern take on traditional Moorish architecture, with riads creating a series of courtyards, arcades and walkways. The 141 rooms start at 450 square feet and are outfitted with exotic but soothing hues, handcrafted Moroccan woodwork, zellige tiling, marble bathrooms and a furnished terrace or balcony (views of the Atlas Mountains can be seen from the third and fourth floors). The suites and separate pavilions are impressive, especially the private four-bedroom, 3,765-square-foot Royal Villa, which is well suited for private entertaining with its expansive terrace and dining room for 12. There are three restaurants on the property (Provençal, Moroccan-fusion and a traditional grill) with two more to open soon, two pools and tennis courts, and the Blu Spa, a 15-room facility offering a traditional hammam experience. Introductory room rates from $475 with a $75 spa credit through September 30, at 1 Blvd. de la Menara; 800-819-5053;
