OLD CITY ENCLAVE  In the heart of Lisbon’s medieval quarter, the Memmo Alfama makes an ideal base for exploring the capital’s historic sites and night spots. The 42-room hotel is housed in a late-19th-century building and features a sprawling terrace and wine bar (above) with dramatic views of the old city and the River Tagus. Rates from $140. memmohotels.com/alfama

ANDROS ESCAPE  Located on South Andros in the Bahamas’ Out Islands, Tiamo is a private-island resort accessible by boat or seaplane. With only 11 beach cottages, this intimate and eco-friendly retreat boasts tranquil beaches, a restaurant, a spa and a host of water sports—including bonefishing in Andros’s famous turquoise flats. From $810, including meals. tiamoresorts.com

L’Hôtel Marrakech transforms a 19th-century palace (left) into a five-suite retreat. Antiques and Conran’s own lighting and textile designs furnish the interiors and terraces (above), making guests feel at home. Rates from $398, including breakfast. l-hotelmarrakech.com
