Inspired by traditional Arabian medinas — the old quarters found in North African cities — Royal Mansour Marrakech is tucked into Marrakesh's own ancient medina just inside the city ramparts. The 53 lavish riads showcase the work of Moroccan artisans, from glazed terracotta tiles to hammered bronze details. For the ultimate in romance, book the Riad d'Honneur, tucked into the corner of the grounds with its own swimming pool and garden. Most likely you won't want to leave your room, but once you've worked up an appetite, you can dine on fine French or classic Moroccan cuisine. Numerous cozy garden corners beckon, and the spa features a hammam for whiling away an afternoon.
