GLAM Review: Marrakech’s Magnificent La Sultana Hotel
Romance, beauty, history and luxury combined in one unforgettable experience.
Intoxicating, fabled and exotic, Marrakech has attracted adventurers, explorers, writers and romantics for centuries. And from Charlie Chaplin to the Rolling Stones, Yves Saint Laurent to Cameron Diaz, the ‘Red City’ has cast its enchantment over a host of famous names.
All for good reason. Its markets are crammed with gorgeous jewellery, carpets, carvings, fragrances, oils and collectibles. Its spas (known as hammams) are heavenly. Its people are warm, its cuisine fabulous, its history intriguing, and it even smells gloriously of orange blossoms and spices.
A true feast for the senses, Marrakech has just been voted Number One Destination in the World on Trip Advisor. And, as a huge cherry on top, it’s a wonderful destination for our exchange rate-strapped rand. Marvels, romance, fun and sensuality — what’s not to love?
All of which brings us to a hotel that seems to have come straight out of a fairy tale: the magnificent La Sultana.
