Time for something exotic! How about a trip to out of the way Morocco? Sir Richard Branson (of Virgin everything fame) has created a wonderful retreat in the foothills of the Atlas mountains, 45 minutes from Marrakech. Kasbah Tamadot is designed like a Moorish fortress with numerous intimate courtyards with fountains and lush greenery, all with views of the magnificent mountain rage at its doorstep. Only 18 rooms ensure the utmost service and privacy and a three bedroom "master suite" has 3 bedrooms of its own, as well as a private pool. The hotel's restaurant is ran by chef Jean Mundell-Murphy who was trained by noted chef, Raymond Blanc. Rates for this exclusive Kasbah start at 290 Euros a night.
