Travel

The coolest husband and wife team–she’s a designer-turned-hotelier, he’s an ethnobotanist–created this drop dead gorgeous estate that offers an intimate, wellness-focused escape ten minutes outside Marrakech. Nearly every inch exudes a sense of style and health: An organic garden produces vegetables for the ever-changing menu, the villas feature pan-African design with Moroccan rugs and Senegalese art, and the architecture lends itself to the most relaxed setting to sit back and sip tea. If you want to learn about Moroccan food culture head chef Bahija, who has a sort of cult-following amongst foodies, teaches classes focused on utilizing locally-grown produce, most of which is from the estate’s garden. If you’re feeling adventurous you can head to the medina to shop for traditional Moroccan spices. To top it all off, the couple is opening a Pilates studio this winter to round out their wellness offerings. Last photo: Marcel Jolibois
