Morocco has been on the radar of boho-cool celebrities for decades, and the luxury riad scene is booming more than ever—but you don’t need A-lister credentials to be treated like royalty. Upping your budget opens up a world of possibilities, whether that means a bespoke glamping tour of the Sahara or a sunrise hot air balloon ride with the Atlas Mountains on the horizon.

A stay in a riad is likely to be one of your most memorable experiences in Marrakech. Push open the heavy wooden door and you enter a world far removed from the hubbub outside; one where you can rest in the shade of an orange tree, dip into a lantern-lit pool, or peer across the minarets of the historic city from the roof terrace, mint tea in hand.
