Can't get Oasis for your party? Then take your party to the oasis, Moroccan style. Riad Meriem. Buried deep in Marrakech's medina, this hip riad would make a stylish setting for a small, relaxed group. Riad Meriem is the offspring of the New York interior designer Thomas Hays, who has opted for design-led opulence. Polished plaster walls frame single works of art: here a Sumatran ceremonial cloth, there an African carving. A cheerful informality prevails. Lost in the medina? A call from one of the riad's mobile phones conjures up a helpful young man on a scooter.
