After a 12-hour flight to Mauritius, the pristine white sandy beaches and clear waters surrounding Hotel Riu Le Morne might seem like a mirage. But once you've pinched yourself and blinked back the happy tears, indulging in everything this oasis has to offer - like unwinding in a Turkish bath or taking a boat trip to the tiny islet of Ilot Benitiers - will become second nature.
Just a five-minute walk from Jemaa El Fna, Sensimar Medina Gardens is the ideal location to test your bargain-hunting skills. From local craftsmen selling traditional, earthenware tagines to the hypnotic snake charmers beckoning you with their flutes, losing yourself in Marrakech's historic market is an enchanting experience.
Kefalonia's Sensimar Tesoro Blu Resort & Spa exudes style. Flaunting minimalist creamy white concrete, rustic wood and elegant glass, this hotel was given the ultimate nod of fashion approval - by Vogue UK. Head straight for the hotel's knock-out spa - a peaceful enclave basking in candlelight, which offers nirvana-inducing beauty treatments and massages.
Being perched high up on a hillside is a small clue to Hotel Riu Palace Madeira's appeal. Ramblers from all over the world are known to use the hotel as vantage point from which to explore the mountains, valleys and forests of Madeira. And when you get back from a long walk, the hotel's lounge terrace is the perfect spot to sip cocktails while taking in the unobstructed vista of the Atlantic.
Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius.
