The city of Marrakesh is filled with historical and cultural treasures which every year, attract visitors from all over the world. In the heart of the old city, the medina, there is a site which tourists flock to for its beauty: the Saadian tombs, the fabulous16th century remains of the Saadian dynasty which once ruled over the city. After having been hidden and walled up in the 18th century, they were discovered by chance in 1917. Located next to the Kasbah mosque, it’s the final resting place of Sultan El Mansour and his descendants. Three large sumptuous, rooms contain the remains, the most beautiful of which is the “room of twelve columns”, with an elaborate wooden dome and marble sepulchers. Other sites of course, add to the fascination of the city like the Koutoubia mosque, or the “mosque of the book sellers” and the Dar Si Said museum entirely dedicated to Moroccan craftwork.
Behind an immense door in the heart of Marrakesh’s medina, a few steps from the Koutoubia mosque and the Saadian tombs, we find the fabulous La Sultana Palace. Recently renovated with the cooperation of the Historic Buildings Commission, this hotel is an intelligent blend of luxury and authenticity. Its 28 rooms and suites are spread over three charming riads, each with a different atmosphere. Each of the rooms and suites has a refined elegant and authentic décor all its own. They all have large beds, antique furniture, beautiful fireplaces, lanterns, touches of zelliges, the typically Moroccan ceramics, and spacious bathrooms most of which are in marble. Generosity and warmth emanate from these spaces, enhancing the guests’ stay here.
In the heart of the main riad, the Almohade, there’s a heated swimming pool surrounded by carved pillars and local trees. The spa is one of the most well reputed in the city as it’s situated in a sumptuous setting worthy of ancient Roman baths, thanks to its pink Agadir marble and its numerous columns which give it a very special kind of charm. The treatments offered are based on ancestral local traditions as well as balneo and aromatherapy. There are also several hammams, a sauna and a number of relaxation rooms for guests in search of a moment of total serenity.
La Sultana’s Moroccan Chef is capable of surprising even the most demanding palates with his traditional recipes spiced up with touches of originality, so that guests can discover new taste sensations every day. Meals can be taken alongside the pool or on the hotel’s terrace with its magnificent view of the city.
