A Romantic Riad from UK Designer Jasper Conran



Brit designer Jasper Conran (son of Sir Terence) has had a robust career; his areas of expertise include apparel, interiors, and home decor; now he’s moved into hospitality. Conran first visited Morocco in 1984 and had been mulling the idea of buying and restoring a riad ever since. In 2016 he opened L’Hotel Marrakech?as both designer and owner?inside the city’s central medina. It’s composed of five rooms (all suites) set in a 19th-century riad, arranged around a central garden and pool with a restaurant and hammam. Suites start at ?293 ($314) per night; for more information, visit L’Hotel Marrakech.
