Only 15 miles from the mayhem of Marrakesh, secluded Tigmi, on the brow of a hill by a berber hamlet, is a blissed-out haven that mixes style with substance and features a new spa and hamman, both of which use chemical-free ingredients sourced nearby. Overlooked by the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, with a view of an ancient kasbah, it is a place to forget the outside world.The house was built in 1840; following a sensitive 2006 restoration by local artisans, using original materials and building methods, it reopened as a hotel of 22 large rooms.
