Staying in the beautiful Marrakech is always a treat but if we do so in the emblematic district of the city, in the Kasbah of the Medina (a Unesco world heritage) the experience is unbeatable.
Among its theatrical aspect streets, 10 minutes from the Jemaa or the palaces of El Badi and Bahia is La Sultana, a boutique hotel with a spectacular Moorish decor and maintained in the millimeter abundant marble, traditional brick courtyards that make us feel in paradise in the middle of the Thousand and One Nights.
By the pool…
Composed of four mansions, La Sultana has 28 rooms, all with views to large interior courtyards to escape the heat. That is especially thanks to the countless fountains, pools and terrace that, in addition to creating space is beautiful, help cool the environment.
Each room is decorated differently, but they all have common elements: a luxurious, magical and sophisticated atmosphere, antique furniture, typical Moroccan handmade fireplace and a spectacular marble bathroom, among other things.
What is the difference between them? First of all, their sizes. Of course the suites are larger and have two-bathrooms, some of the materials used are different, the availability or not of a private balcony and views. As far as the exterior is concerned, some overlook a patio, others to the pool etc.. But size does not matter when it comes to the feeling it gives its guests. This very special and magical atmosphere that will make them believe that they are in a magical dream.
For the food now, you wouldn’t expect anything else than the traditional Moroccan food that is served in the hotel restaurant. Delicately spiced and prepared with fresh produce acquired in the city markets. Among its specialties is the traditional couscous with seven vegetables or Ghanmi exquisite duck pate house menu.
At noon, grill, salads, tagines… All of them served on the panoramic terraces from which you can see the Atlas Mountains or from the edge of any of the resort pools. And at night, an intimate and magical atmosphere surrounds the courtyards and terraces, creating the ideal place to enjoy fine dining outdoors in the cool of the night of Marrakech.
Thousand and one nights
And to end this magical journey, we can only speak of the spa, where the environment invites us to relaxation and our well-being: the charm of a Roman temple in pink marble pillars born of an ancient basin, vaults and domes. You can also enjoy the sauna, the steam room, the jacuzzi and of course, the countless therapeutic and beauty treatments and massages based on Arab ancestral rituals seasoned with natural products and essential oils of the earth (orange blossom, olive, henna among others) we will feel in paradise.
If you seek sophistication, sensuality and tradition in a luxurious, sophisticated, charming and inimitable environment the Sultana is waiting…
