If you're seeking an escape from the frenetic pace of Marrakech's medina, book into Philomena Schurer Merckoll's Riad Mena. This beautiful property has seven serene bedrooms dressed down in neutral tones and simple, clean-cut furnishings. Splashes of colour are added though contemporary art on the walls and the occasional embroidered cushion. Our favourite room? The Writer's Den - a dinky escape (the smallest in the house) made for solo stays in the city. If you see anything you love during your visit, pop into The Pink House, next door. The hotel's gallery-boutique sells similar homeware.
