Riad Goloboy — Marrakech, Morocco
A cool urban sanctuary with a pop art edge, Riad Goloboy is the first of its kind in Marrakech’s labyrinthine medina. Wrapped in cheerful hues inspired by the colourful works of artists Henri Matisse and Serge Poliakoff, the interiors of the eight-room property are designed by owner and art collector, Béatrice Faujas. Lacy arabesque archways and 50s Danish-style furniture mingle with bold pop art and pieces by French street artist Kouka, while the Moorish romance of the building’s typical riad shell reflects Faujas’ longstanding love for Morocco. Sample the kitchen’s mouth-watering organic offerings from one of the cosy nooks in the hotel’s lounges and patio or unwind on the rooftop terrace where idyllic vistas of the nearby gardens and the Koutoubia Mosque are set against a spellbinding backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
