Celebrating our two year anniversary.
Me & Jay
...great weekend, sealed with a smooch.
Lobby area with eclectic Moroccan details and afternoon tea & snack service.
The comfy nook just off the lobby.
The bed in the Tangier Studio is built into an arched Moroccan alcove. Someone seems to like it.
Serene & clean sitting area in our room.
Plenty of options for a private dine or dangle.
Every room has a cute kitchenette complete with a stove, glassware...even a Moroccan tagine!
Fire pits, fountains and dozens of flickering lanterns up the sexy, exotic vibe at night.
This was our favorite spot to sink into at dusk.
Cute lil two top outside our room where we ate breakfast every morning. Most guests dine in the open front courtyard. We, are lazy.
The centerpiece: a heated pool and chic striped lounges, overlooked by the Artist Studio's beautiful turret windows. (It's rumored Winston Churchill painted there).
Highs + Lows
The whole place is truly transportive and inviting. It feels like nowhere you've ever been, and home at the same time.
The service is subtle but strong. The staff knows exactly when to appear and when to slip away.
Sunday Morning Yoga is held around 8:15am, a bit earlier than someone in a blissfully relaxed state might want to hit the mat.
