The Naoura Barrière is a luxury resort complex in the heart of Marrakech’s ancient medina. A peaceful refuge from the bustling Jemaa El Fna and the maze of the city’s souk, it covers nearly five acres including the main hotel and individual ryads. The latter have private pools and flower-filled walled courtyards, making them perfect for families or friends traveling together. Sunny guestrooms, designed by Pascal Desprez, have Wenge floors, black wood furniture, ivory curtains and pale linens. The centerpiece restaurant is the elegant Fouquet’s Marrakech, which offers Moroccan specialties alongside classic French dishes from the Champs-Elysées brasserie of the hotel’s sister property in Paris.
