    Jane's verdict:

    Morocco is a 3-hour flight away, yet it offers a thoroughly exotic honeymoon. Let all your senses be stimulated in the souks of Marrakech, before retreating to a palatial riad. Romantics will fall in love with the Atlas mountains and coastal gems like Essaouira, not to mention camel trekking and hot air balloon rides for two.

    Few places on earth lend themselves to exceptional honeymoons in the way Morocco does. The country’s sheer romanticism and mystery, colour and diversity will intoxicate you.

    It’s also one of the few places in the world you can fly to from the UK in under four hours and enjoy pretty much year-round sunshine.

    • Easy to reach
    • Great value
    • Romantic hotels

    If time is short and you have a minimoon in mind, Marrakech packs a real punch. We’ve selected our favourite riads and guesthouses from hippy chic hideaways to seriously chic and elegant luxury escapes.

    Pick your location to suit your taste – somewhere in the heart of the Medina for a more lively experience (maison mk for example) or a more tranquil country house hotel outside the city such as Jnane Tamsna.

    Morocco’s Atlantic coast is stunning and boasts some wonderful boutique hotels. Essaouira is one of our favourites, combining a gorgeous beach with a fascinating and bustling medina within the ancient city walls. You can even stay in this stylish hotel on the ramparts.

    If the Atlas Mountains are beckoning with the chance to enjoy some trekking, spend time with local Berber villagers and soak up the cooler mountain air, we highly recommend Kasbah du Toubkal, an eco-lodge – with knobs on!
