Marrakesh is best known for its exotic medina, the historic district, once a fortified city. But those wishing to avoid its hubbub might prefer to stay in nearby, upscale Palmeraie, home to a coterie of well-to-do residents and posh, quieter hotels. At Palais Namaskar, olive and orange trees, shady palms, ponds and bright bougainvillea adorn a 12-acre expanse, dotted with 27 graceful, Moorish-influenced, stand-alone, personal suites -- many with private pools. Also part of the haven, a spa, camel ride activity and 3 restaurants.
