I write this on the other side of the world, scheming madly to return soonest, so I can wake up with the sun, do my yoga on the rooftop with palm tree views as far as the eye can see, or amidst the fragrant gardens where I go after working up an appetite, to pick the world's tastiest arugula and carrots, both to be found among the rose bushes. Breakfast is a generous affair of fresh fruit, homemade Moroccan treats and French coffee. Admittedly, most days I prefer to lounge by the pool, swimming year round thanks to the heated pools among the hotel's five pools, then taking my lunch in the gardens then lounging some more, perhaps with a book from Meryanne (the owner)'s global selection, and eventually drinks by the warm fire. I have met lovely people from all over the world around this grand fire place. Each and every photogenic room confers the feeling of being an honored houseguest, filled with Meryanne and Gary's extensive antique collection plus HEAVENLY organic bath amenities. I never leave without purchasing a big slab of their amazing soaps. The silence of the Palmeraie makes for incredibly peaceful sleeps, and then its morning again, when a member of the staff appears as I request with a morning cup of tea before I decide where among the acres of gardens I shall practice yoga, or perhaps linger under the smooth and cozy covers just a bit longer. When I do feel like going into Marrakech, for shopping in the medina, or the showrooms and boutiques around Gueliz, I rely exclusively on Meryanne's recommendations and introductions. She's been living and designing in Marrakech for over twenty years, there is no one more in the know. Ask Gary her husband to take you into the organic gardens where you can get your hands dirty among his talented team, then return to dine on the fruits of their labor. I could go on and on, but you should go go go...
