La Mamounia, Marrakech
Like the heady city it inhabits, this Moroccan hotel oozes glamour and romance. Located on former royal gardens, the Moorish-meets-Art Deco gem has been a longtime favorite with A-listers, including Winston Churchill, who spent many winters here and declared it “the most lovely spot in the whole world.”
Some hotels are destinations in their own right. Their fabled reputations draw travelers seeking a place with personality, that X factor that makes the destination as much of a joyful discovery as the journey, a home base with heart.
Whether you’re looking to rub shoulders with history at one of the world’s grandes dames, seeking sublime vistas, or sniffing out delicious food and wine, these hotels are guaranteed to enrich any travel experience.
