A 45-minute drive outside Marrakech, Sir Richard Branson’s rose-tinted retreat is all about the serenity of the Atlas Mountains. You’ll be hard pressed to discover anywhere quite as spellbinding as this fairytale getaway which still overflows with antiques picked up from the Orient and Middle East. Yet its 2005 re-invention marries the old with the new, the softest of shades with the brightest of colours, and of course nowhere reflects this unbridled exoticism more than the beautifully decorated bedrooms and suites. Yet for panoramic vistas it’s hard to beat the infinity-edge pool; the indoor pool and treatment rooms beckoning if you want to be pampered; cooking classes and guided mule treks on offer if you prefer to explore. When it comes to dining, the traditional Moroccan, Berber or European dishes are served in the romantic Kanoun restaurant and accompanied by either candlelight, firelight or starlight.
