Me, Valentine Fillol-Cordier and a whole troupe of eccentrics
V.F.C demonstrating there is enough
room to disco dance in the bathroom.
The Devil is in the detail and the detail is everywhere.
Le Fleur Du Mal.
Night Swimming (Hum the REM song whilst experiencing this).
An Oasis in the heat.
Do you think they would notice if a rug went missing?
The Taj Palace.
Valentine and I are way too rock and roll to show you our perfect bed - i.e. we are children and bounced all over it in five seconds.
Just having a rest on our way to the pool.
Welcome to the Taj.
Highs + Lows
The beds are a dream and absolutely huge. We had to tear ourselves out of it.
The hammam spa is one of the best treatments I've had in recent years.
The rugs, roses, and hand painted detail give it a sense of organic luxury and warmth.
They are a new hotel so service is on the slow side. Don’t order in a rush.
Food options aren’t vast...mini bar is limited.

Princess Jasmine meets monied older gent.
A bumpy trek from the centre of Marrakech, giving it a serene escape vibe without feeling trapped in a sanitized resort.
I’m going to say Arabic House...but I think that might have been the soundtrack to my mind.

American architect Stuart Church.
Yes, plus a great spa and yoga classes, and an incredible hammam which I cannot recommend more.
Yes, in fact they have their own club. It's a bit "Muriel's Wedding" but that was actually a bonus for me.
It's a very relaxed hotel and I feel older children would enjoy the pool - but it's very romantic, so maybe send them to summer camp.
You need to spend like a sultan, not a servant.
