Last week Liz Hoggard slept in a botanical garden. Each morning at Essaouira’s Le Jardin des Douars, a hotel set in 7.5 acres of tropical planting, she awoke to the heady scent of thyme, Moroccan rose and lantana, then snuck out of the villa to swim in the heated jade pool, as frogs scuttled past giant cacti and succulents, and red dragonflies turned arabesques in the breeze.

Photo taken on Dec. 18, 2013 shows the gate of the old city of Essaouira, Morocco. Essaouira is an exceptional example of a late-18th-century fortified town, built according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture in a North African context. Since its foundation, it has been a major international trading seaport, linking Morocco and its Saharan hinterland with Europe and the rest of the world. Essaouira was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2001.
