21st-Century Fez

Morocco’s very traditional city just got quite a bit more modern.

The 50-room Hotel Sahrai, unveiled in July, is located in a riad-like building with resort-like amenities—two restaurants and a rooftop bar, North Africa’s first Givenchy spa, a hammam, a gym—and has possibly the coolest bathroom design ever.

Rooms, from $185; Bab Lghoul, Dhar El Mehraz; 212-5/3594-0332.
