Magic! A gem in the heart of Marrakech
Posted Jun 16, 2016 on Hotels
No photographs and no words can do justice to this gorgeous riad. La Sultana is by far the most gorgeous place I've ever stayed in - it feels like a fairy tale, a magical palace that is also your cozy home. It was an absolute highlight of our travel through Europe and Africa. The location is excellent – you are in the very heart of the medina, yet completely quiet, private and secluded. The rooms are the work of art; the swimming pool and the spa are breath-takingly beautiful. Their interior design unbelievable, with masterfully selected art. The staff - Ilyass, Rachida, Khalid and Saida treated us like family every minute of the stay. In one of our rooms, we had a minor technical glitch, that most hotels wouldn't even consider an issue. Folks at La Sultana surprised us with an upgrade to a luxurious two story suite with a balcony, and to spare us the inconvenience of moving (!) offered to keep our suitcases in the original room. We were speechless. The only tough part of the stay was that we had to leave… Oh, and the food in the restaurant is delectable. And the spa is excellent.
