I found this beautiful luxury hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. The Kasbah Agafay Hotel and Spa,
here are some photos from the hotel and information about the city. Enjoy!!
Marrakech or Marrakesh (مراكش Marrakesh), known as the "Red City" or "Al Hamra," is a city with a population of 1,036,500 (as of 2006) in southwestern Morocco, near the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The possible origin of its name could be from the Tamazight (Berber) words mur (n) akuch, which means "Land of God". (The root "mur" is now in the Berber languages used only in the feminine form "tamurt"). The same word "mur/mawr" appears in the country Mauritania, but this interpretation is still unproven to this day. There are other possibilities that are often invoked. more info/source
