La Sultana is a 5-star deluxe hotel ideally located in the Medina of Marrakech, a UNESCO World Heritage listed site, boasting unique and traditional architecture and panoramic views of a thousand years of history. La Sultana Marrakech event spaces can be exclusively yours for three nights, a week or more for a luxurious wedding, celebration or special corporate retreat.
La Sultana is made up of five separate riads (courtyard houses). The 28 suites and bedrooms all have their own individual style but they share La Sultana’s hallmark of oriental splendour, creating a rare fusion of styles and cultures. The venue displays Moroccan craftsmanship at its best, from the intricate stucco ornamentation to the hand-carved woodwork and tadelkat (polished plaster) surfaces. The cosy atmosphere of the patio entices you in winter, and the rooftop overlooking the vibrant city and the snow-capped Atlas mountains is a treat in the summer.
The garden of the Sheherazade has the lushness of the African savannah, honoring the craftsmen of Morocco, while Riad Saadia has cedarwood balustrades and zellige tiles reminiscent of the old Fez. The tranquil swimming pool, located on the patio with shady colonnades and semi-tropical vegetation, offers the perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. For the ultimate in health and relaxation, the spa and beauty parlour offer a vast menu of treatments. As well as an exercise room, sauna and jacuzzi, there are shared and individual hammams, massage rooms and plush lounges.
For the ultimate epicurean delight, La Sultana offers to share the secrets of popular Moroccan cuisine through a private cooking class, ideal for a family or small group. Whatever the time or season, eating at La Sultana is a fresh and sensuous experience. Guests enjoy a breakfast table of seasonal fruits, fresh pastries and local delicacies as they overlook the rooftops of the Medina. At midday, light lunches are served on the patio next to the pool. Late afternoon is given over to the ceremony of mint tea served with Moroccan pastries, and the experience concludes with dinner under the stars.
When the time comes for a cocktail, a range of al fresco coves offer respite and privacy or alternatively the wood-panelled interior of the lounge bar makes for a welcoming retreat. The retro club chairs are a comfy way to enjoy a plate of tapas, and the large window provides a rare, underwater view of the swimming pool. La Sultana expands the Orient’s culinary experience one step further by uncovering the best kept secrets of Moroccan cuisine during cookery classes exclusively set up on the rooftop terrace. La Sultana’s location, event spaces, ambiance and cuisine create an ideal venue for the most unique of events.
