Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis — Sanssouci Collection, Marrakesh
Once a year two rumors circulate: Johnny Depp and longtime love Vanessa Paradis will wed, and Depp will reprise his role as Jack Sparrow. There’s no word on wedding bells for the couple, who have been together since 1998 and have two kids, but Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be released in May 2011, so one rumor was true.
The Hideaway: Trip to the altar aside, Depp and Paradis know how to plan a romantic escape. They recently visited Marrakesh and stayed in a decadent Sanssouci Collection riad hotel. The boutique property, decorated in traditional Moroccan style with colored tile work, arched doors, and lattice window screens, can host only a few guests at a time. Each riad also comes with its own hammam and spa.
