From grand castles in Italy and ancient culture in Morocco to the idyllic shores of the Seychelles, we’ve rounded up three top ideas for your future travel plans

Paradise found 

Head to the dreamy Seychelles where numerous secluded options await. One of the most coveted spots is Six Senses Zil Pasyon, a private island set among dramatic granite boulders and lush vegetation. The hotel offers a spa with five treatment villas, a yoga and meditation pavilion and treatments inspired by the surrounding botanicals. After a day exploring the island, tuck into the freshest fish caught that day in the non-meat restaurant Ocean Kitchen or a private dinner in the Wine Vault accompanied by a master sommelier.

Ancient arts

Exploring the elaborate decorations of the historic La Sultana Riyadh in Marrakech, the Living Architecture Heritage Tour — launching this month — is led by the hotel’s architecture and heritage curators. The complimentary hour-long tour examines ancient techniques passed down through generations of craftsmen, such as carved stone, zellige and tadelakt. It also includes a visit to the workshop of these craftsmen — known as Melems —to see them at work and the tools they use. The tour aims to keep these artisanal traditions alive for future generations.

Enchanting castle

Set in acres of ancient pasture, the beautiful Umbrian estate of Reschio has been restored to its former glory by the urbane Count Bolza and his family. From April, it will welcome guests into the 1,000-year-old castle. The 36-room hotel, restaurant and spa boasts a hammam, organic gardens and beehives.
