For an intimate experience, check into this traditional riad. With just six sexy bedrooms, Maison MK maintains a homely vibe despite the luxurious pool, private cinema, mini spa and Atlas Mountain views. The welcome is warm and inviting, plus you'll find a pre-credited mobile phone with numbers you might need, an honesty minibar, and breakfast served any time you like. Sunbathe on the rooftop, try a Moroccan cookery class, shop in the medina and dine in the hotel's well-rated restaurant, Gastro MK. WOW FACTOR: Don't leave without trying the traditional msemmen pancakes drizzled with honey for breakfast… Mmm. GO: Doubles from £310 B&B; suite from £398 B&B package (minimum three-night stay) including transfers (maisonmk.com). British Airways (britishairways.com) flies from £159 return.
