La Sultana Marrakech
Marrakech is an endlessly fascinating city, and this exquisite property is perfectly situated for exploring the many palaces, souks and historical gems nearby. Combining all the luxuries of a five-star hotel with the feeling of staying in the heart of the city, this is the ultimate way to experience Marrakech in style.
A member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection, La Sultana is set within the Kasbah, the historic residence of Morocco’s Sultans. Wander these streets and you’ll discover incredible authentic cuisine, fascinating souks, trendy cafés and the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa square just a ten-minute walk away.
La Sultana makes its privileged location the star; upon arrival guests are led through brightly-coloured passageways to the atmospheric reception area, where they are presented with a traditional mint tea. Service is attentive yet relaxed, allowing guests to feel immediately at home here.
The hotel is made up of five separate riads, or beautiful gardens, which makes for an endlessly intricate and stylish ambience throughout. Head to the roof terrace for incredible views out over the city and the Atlas Mountains; you’ll also find a solarium, plunge pool, gazebo, bar and al fresco lunch restaurant up here to make the most of the views.
Step into the spa to feel truly indulged; therapists use plenty of local specialties and delicacies in treatments designed to help travellers fully unwind. Facilities include a duo of hammams, a sauna, beauty salon, Jacuzzi and balneotherapy baths.
As well as sampling authentic Moroccan cuisine in the hotel’s restaurants, guests can try their hand at local cooking techniques themselves with a cookery class.
