Riad Anyssates is clearly a labour of love – but the staff radiate the impression that working here is hardly a chore. Everyone seems totally delighted to be at the hotel, and, after a leisurely afternoon supping mint tea on the rooftop terrace and watching the Marrakech medina bustle away below, you will be too.
Dar Seven in Marrakech feels like an elegant home fit for royalty. Pots of olive trees, huge blonde antique doors and a dining table in the open-air courtyard look set for a glamorous interiors shoot. Cream-coloured linen abounds; cubbies of cream-upholstered sofas and dark brown wooden furniture create a colour palette more Ralph Lauren than Moroccan riad. Utterly tranquil; magnificently chic.
