Revamped by imaginative American architect Bill Willis, this palatial riad is pure fantasy with its soaring arches, chandeliers, and bathrooms with tadelakt (polished plaster) fireplaces. Brace yourself for a marathon of too-good-to-leave salads, tagines, lamb, couscous, and pastries. Yacout draws celebrities, royals, and affluent locals so reservations can be difficult to organize. Book well ahead.
