    Map View

    This 200-year-old rammed earth kasbah (fortress) – at the edge of the desert near the city of Ouarzazate (the gateway to the Sahara) – is the stuff honeymoon dreams are made of. There are 14 rooms surrounded by palm groves and almond trees, a shaded swimming pool, hammam and a candle-lit massage room. Every meal is private and served in one of the hotel’s distinct settings – think breakfast in the lush gardens, a picnic lunch beneath the basalt rock formations of nearby Legzira Beach, or a candlelit dinner atop a 12th-century agadir (fortified granary). The team can also arrange local adventures, such as hiking through the Valley of Roses or a dusk tea ceremony in a Berber village.

    The Moroccan port city of Tangier, on the Strait of Gibraltar, has been a gateway between Africa and Europe since Phoenician times and, as such, it has a fascinating history. Step back in time at Dar Nour – also known as The House of Light – which is the city’s oldest guesthouse. It’s perched on 11th-century walls close to the Sultan’s Palace and boasts a mix of rooms and suites, all individually decorated in a Bohemian style with charismatic finds from the local souks. If you’re looking for an unforgettable experience, book the Kahena suite, which is decorated with kaleidoscopic ceramic tiles. The indulgent Moroccan breakfast – which includes crème caramel and crêpes “mille trous” served with mountain honey – is also a must.
