Made Over, Still Magical

The Riad
Every other week, some designer artfully revamps another Medina riad, but few match the effortless élan of Riad Dixneuf (Dixneuf-La-Ksour.com). Avoiding the clichéd Arabian nightmare of Day-Glo tiles and dangling lanterns, this intimate property on the edge of the Medina, designed by local Studio KO, edits things down to wooly tribal rugs, stucco fireplaces, and freestanding tubs. Even better, its daybed-lined rooftop overlooks the souk, so you can hear the city’s somber music at dusk, when the mosques send out their call to prayers.
