I've been daydreaming recently about a luxury, adult only, getaway with hubby.
I don't want to trip into the nearest Mantra however, I want the sort of stuff dreams are made of - something that looks like it's out of a movie or off the pages of a book. I want decadent and outrageous. (I want, I want, I want!).
Here are three very different luxury dream hotels in seperate corners of the world I have been drooling over. Which would you choose to visit?
"The Traditional Moroccan Riad"
El Fenn - Marrakech, Morocco
Mysterious corridors leading to enchanting inner courtyards. Rich palets of jade and ruby, reminiscent of long-lost arabian jewels. Ancient views of the Marrakech landscape and the sounds of the adhan calling all to prayer.
I could totally pad through here in bare feet and flowing robes to bathe, eat figs and possibly write my first novel...
"The Natural White-Washed Greek Hidaway"
Kapari Natural Resort - Santorini Greece
The sheltered cave-like feel of this white-washed wonder in the sapphire blue seas of the Agean is the perfect recluse's refuge. Purity and earthiness abound and the views of volcanic remnants of rock swimming in the last light of the day would be just spectacular.
I'm thinking seafood, leather sandals and sailing boats...
"The Modern Australian Wilderness Retreat"
Southern Ocean Lodge - Kangaroo Island, Australia
The vast panoramic views of this architecturally brilliant eco-lodge showcase the sheer scale and wildness of the Australian landscape. Floor to ceiling glass coupled with raw timbers and quality finishes allow the surroundings to enter the building and dramatise the feeling of literally being in the middle of nowhere (but in style!)
Imagining hikes through the South Australian scrub to roam white sandy beaches, followed by a glass (or two) of crisp dry riesling while watching a full sky of stars from my private deck...
