Description

The luxury La Sultana is a delightful riad in the very heart of old Marrakech. The hotel is intimate yet spacious and each room has been individually decorated with a quirky blend of traditional and modern styles.

Once you enter through the front door of La Sultana, the noise from the hustle and bustle of the medina disappears. Five riads have been combined to create this luxury boutique hotel, with its extraordinary rooms and panoramic views from the expansive roof terraces over the Royal Palaces.

There are 28 sophisticated rooms and suites that spread out across the property and each has been styled with a different theme in mind, such as the safari room with its animal print furnishings and African touches. Whichever room you have you are sure to feel pampered beyond belief - the attention to detail the hotel puts into ensuring the comfort of its guests is second to none.

A magnificent rooftop terrace overlooks the ancient Tombs of the Saadian Kings and out across to the beautiful Atlas Mountains in the distance. You can enjoy breakfast or lunch here and watch the sun rise as the city of Marrakech comes alive.

If you are looking to be pampered after a long day haggling in the souk, then a traditional hammam treatment at La Sultana spa will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated in no time. They have a fairly large swimming pool if you wanted to do some lengths and the spa offers a wide range of treatments; anything from hydrotherapy to aromatherapy.

The hotel offers great food, using fresh ingredients that have been inspired by Mediterranean and Oriental influences. Dinner is often served around the pool area and softly lit by candlelight, which can make for a very romantic evening.

La Sultana offers something different for guests who want the riad experience but with some of the amenities of a larger hotel in the heart of the Medina.

Kerry Willmer (Staff)

This Riad is for guests who are looking for something different. Each room has its own theme, some with African influences and some with Oriental decor all carefully blended with Moroccan touches. If you have your lunch on the roof top terrace you can also peer over the wall and enjoy a complimentary view of the 'Saadian Tombs', which are located right next door to the hotel. I was very impressed with the size of their spa and the range of treatments offered.
