Favourite Dining Experiences

La Grande Table Marocaine @ Royal Mansour, Marrakech, Morocco

With its home at Royal Mansour (owned by the King of Morocco), and under the supervision of French, three-Michelin-star Chef, Yannick Alleno, we just knew this dining experience would be incredible, and it surpassed all expectation. The ambient lighting sets the tone, as does the phenomenal white glove service: but it’s the contemporary twist to the cuisine and the stunning use of flavours that really bring all your senses to life. For our main dish, my husband and I shared the Royal Mansour Seafood Platter – Blue Lobster, Spiny Lobster, Royal Prawns, Inkfish and Clams Tagine – and was some of the finest seafood we’ve ever tasted.


Estancia La Bamba de Areco, Las Pampas, Argentina

La Bamba is one of the oldest Estancias in the heart of Las Pampas, just an hour’s drive from Buenos Aires. Being a member of Relais & Chateaux, it goes without saying it’s a must for foodies visiting this area. And lunch (a traditional Argentinian barbeque – served around a large table where all guests dine together) – is an experience that’s not to be missed. Not only do you get to enjoy the most incredible steaks with a selection of salads and potatoes, all washed down with delicious Argentinian red wine (I’m not usually a red wine drinker but was certainly converted during my time in Argentina!), and followed by fresh fruit crepes made on the stove in front of you, but you can swap travel tales with your fellow diners, and enjoy the Estancia’s traditional gaucho show with daring horsemanship and equestrian games. Fabulous.







Sunset Beach Bungalow with Pool @ Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa

​These Maldivian-thatched bungalows are great for couples, groups of friends travelling together, or families, as not only do they interconnect, but there’s a fantastic outside space. The natural foliage and mature palms create a private garden, with sheltered decking and a plunge pool, which then leads directly onto the pristine white sand beach.

Most Heavenly Hotel Rooms








Royal Mansour, Marrakech, Morocco

Even the smallest room here is a traditional riad, and as you enter the little courtyard, through the front door and look up, you immediately gain a sense of how special this property is. Each riad is set over three floors and is intricately decorated in stunning, elegant Moroccan style. On the first floor is the lounge area which overlooks the courtyard, and a marble staircase then takes you up to the first floor where you’ll find your en-suite bedroom. Its crowning glory, however, has to be the third floor – home to your own private terrace with dining area, sunbeds and private plunge pool –so private and peaceful, it’s hard to believe that you’re just moments away from the bustling Medina.
