I want to take my two elderly parents on a once-in-a-lifetime trip abroad. They have never left the UK in the past so it's very important that wherever we visit feels very different from the UK in terms of climate and language. I picked North Africa/the Middle East because it's not too far away.
The perfect resort would be somewhere in the desert, completely self-contained, we should have no need to leave it if we don't want to. Maybe somewhere in the Sahara?
A Four Seasons or the like would not do, not only because they are usually not resorts, but because they are generally too stuffy with their dress codes. My parents like to dress very "casual". I don't want the place to be overly stuffy or upper-class in atmosphere.
I thought about amanresorts but the closest one they have is in Turkey, and it's not at all in the desert :P
