The Sultana Marrakech is a beautifully formed paradise in the heart of this bustling city, and its colourful, Moorish design quietly whispers of its dynastic heritage.
A sumptuous breakfast on the rooftop terrace treated us to translucent views over the Medina and Atlas Mountains. We planned our days by taking in the vista, seeking out the nearby Jemoe El Fna square, Saadian Tombs, Royal Palaces plus the bustling souks that Marrakech is so famous for.
The heat of the city melted away at La Sultana’s Spa, and we particularly loved the open air massage cabins and balneotherapy baths. After our treatments, we took in the hotel’s pretty courtyards and sipped our Moroccan mint tea and relaxed before dinner.
This hotel has all the friendliness of a family affair and the efficiency of a major player, and from the perfectly prepared tasting menus to the concierge service attending to every need, it’s intimate, elegant atmosphere and culturally aware architecture provided feasts for every sense.
Our stay at La Sultana was a dusk until dawn experience, as it certainly is like one of our other favourite cities, but with the joy of its own unique history: it simply never sleeps.
