Best For The Royal Treatment
THE STAY: Lavish furnishings, opulent décor, dotted with plenty of gold accents, make this a destination fit for a king, or queen.
All tastes are catered for, encompassing everything from Middle Eastern cuisine at Le Vendome to Levantine hospitality at Mawal, plus perfectly-prepared snacks at poolside eatery Las Brisas (where the infamous Friday brunch takes place). Make sure you don’t leave without trying the camel burger.
DON’T MISS: Just like everything else about this stunning upmarket resort, the luxurious spa will blow you away. With its Moroccan Hammam, ice cave and elaborate menu that includes 24-karat gold facials and diamond-infused oils, it is the epitome of pampering grandeur.
SEEING STARS : Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have enjoyed the warm, Middle Eastern hospitality offered by this worldfamous resort.
