Riad Mena & Beyond - Located in one of Marrakech’s traditional homes, the Riad Mena & Beyond has six rooms, an outdoor pool in the central courtyard and a hammam and spa that offers yoga and Japanese calisthenics. The design of this quiet hideaway is spectacular, with modern touches like Philippe Starck–designed bathrooms and Saarinen tables mixed with bright Moroccan poufs and Berber rugs.
L'Auberge de Sedona is a small hotel with a few "cabins" on the edge of Oak Creek. We stayed here in February a few years ago and it was one of the nicest places we've ever been to. Sedona has the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen and the Grand Canyon is only about two hours away. Hiking through the Red Rock Park makes you feel like you're on another planet.
