Villa Makassar & Spa in Marrakech
Destination Morocco: art deco out of Africa
Owner and art collector Fouad Gradia’s passion for the art deco era led to years of collecting pieces on his travels, which he uses in this project.
Five years of restoration involving local craftsmen and materials from wrought iron, marble and glass to lime plaster, and 10 rooms of wall paintings and sculptures, curved leather and chrome chairs, and authentic light fittings should satisfy the most avid art deco aficionado.
There is also a rooftop restaurant and Winston Churchill cigar and whisky bar, while the spa includes the obligatory hammam, as well as heated indoor and outdoor pools.
