Four Seasons Resort Marrakech, Marrakech, Morocco
Taking its inspiration from a traditional Moroccan medina, this enclave cleverly manages to be a complete escape, yet is just a leisurely stroll from the bustling medina and famous Menara Gardens.
Wrought with Four Seasons’ legendary standards of excellence, this stunning resort is set within 40 acres of fragrant gardens, enveloped by copper-hued walls, and brimming with facilities fit for a king.
Threaded together by fountains, courtyards and romantic walkways, the low-rise accommodation boasts balconies, dreamy views and contemporary design with sultry Moroccan décor, whilst there are also 27 spacious suites.
Dining-wise, the South of France is represented by Bleu d'Orange; Solano flies the flag for fusion (Moroccan-Italian-Andalusian); or if you fancy cocktails under the stars or the palms, opt for Zest, the hip rooftop lounge, or the buzzy pool grill, Azzera.
Speaking of pools, choose from the family or adult pools, and expect fully-serviced cabanas too. Over at the spa, two pavilions set amongst the Moorish gardens provide VIP treatments, alongside a state-of-the-art gym and the two outdoor whirlpools.
