La Sultana Marrakech quoted in the Ten Hot Honeymoon Trends

If you're planning to tie the knot in 2015, your first thought might be a luxury hotel on a beach. But in a world where many couples have already travelled extensively, there's a search for something with more pizazz. More of a "wow" factor.

If you're planning to tie the knot in 2015, your first thought might be a luxury hotel on a beach. But in a world where many couples have already travelled extensively, there's a search for something with more pizazz. More of a "wow" factor. Here, I check in with some of the UK's leading tour operators to find the key honeymoon trends to follow in the next 12 months.

Mini-moons
Time-poor couples are increasingly opting for a short indulgent break immediately after the wedding, perhaps followed by a longer trip later in the year. Hannah Saville, of Classic Collection, says: "Morocco is a popular mini-moon choice. We recommend a couple of nights at Sir Richard Branson's Kasbah Tamadot, a sensational mountain hideaway in the Atlas Mountains. Opt for a Berber tented suite with an open-air whirlpool Jacuzzi overlooking the mountains followed by a night or two at La Sultana Marrakech, with its intimate spa."

As Moroccan Artisan has become an Art, the Moroccan cuisine is present today in the biggest tables. The way of eating indicates usually the degree of a nation’s culture and from this point of view, Morocco,
is a kingdom.

What could be nicer than learning the secrets to amaze friends upon returning from a stay in Marrakech?
La Sultana, one of the 5* Luxury Hotels of the Red city, is an accomplice in delivering its culinary secrets by targeted cooking courses.
We learn the ancestral know-how of the Moroccan cuisine and how to dose accurately the pinch of cumin in the chicken tagine with candied lemon.
On the large terrace, looking like the hanging gardens of Babylon, in the middle of palms and flow of bougainvillea, in an intimate place a laboratory is specially equipped to practice « strum » with several hands.

The charm of this rural setting, olive groves and the huge pots of aromatic plants promote the creative inspiration and invite to a recreational focus to the advices from the chef of the house…

The course is two and a half hour long. The first half hour is devoted for the placement and the virtues of spices in the local cuisine, to the art of dosing and to the harmony of blends. It’s all the magic and the characteristic of the Moroccan cuisine that are revealed: Only the suggestion of flavors which invade gradually the palace.
Then come two hours of initiation with the Chef. On gleaming stainless steel keyboards, colorful vegetables are spread. The lesson goes on ! Advices, example, corrections… Each vegetable will become a stroke
of brush in pallet of paint once the dish is done.

Finally comes the reward of the pleasure of tasting from its own creation followed by an essential ritual of tea. And at this melodious time when the singing of tea arises like a fountain in a exquisite freshness of a minty breeze, dreams begin…


- Course duration: 1H45 followed by tasting dishes
- Rate for 2 persons: 800Mad per person
- Private course: 4 500 MAD (minimum 8 persons)

A moment of joy we yearn forever!

Terraces in Marrakech are known for being special, but the sultana’s is fabulous.
Encircled like a jewel within the ramparts of the medina, the sultana is topped by a 1500m 2 vast terrace. Like hanging gardens of Babylon, it stands with transcendent elegance.

A world set apart, that owes most of its fame to the traditional and stylish look of the city, a real feast for the eyes!
Hard to keep a dazzled look amid flagrant bougainvillea blossoms?
On mother of pearl or shiny rubies? On the picturesque minarets whose glistening roofs are covered with glazed tiles, or on the legendary snow capped peaks of the high atlas mountain chain stretching into the horizon? On the Saadian tombs that are splendidly laid at the foot of an historical party wall?

The 360° view: outright luxury! Ephemeral sensations frozen in memory


The grill of the hanging gardens of La Sultana Marrakech

Located in the historical centre of Marrakech, overlooking the famous Mosques of the Medina, The Grill of La Sultana is the ideal lunch spot to combine a visit of the imperial Kasbah district originally a citadel continually occupied by the Sultans of Morocco since the 12th century with local cuisine tasting & gourmet safaris.

Located in the historical centre of Marrakech, overlooking the famous Mosques of the Medina, The Grill of La Sultana is the ideal lunch spot to combine a visit of the imperial Kasbah district originally a citadel continually occupied by the Sultans of Morocco since the 12th century with local cuisine tasting & gourmet safaris.

The Grill (or charcoal barbecue) is part of the secular tradition of the Red City. At night, the Jemaa El Fna square turns into one of the world’s busiest open-air restaurants lit only by the light of the full moon and endless food stalls lights with smoke, steam and the smell of food everywhere.

The Kasbah Street, at the doorstep of the hotel, is also full of small food stalls where fires built in charcoal grills with fresh meats and vegetables are laid out for inspection.

La Sultana Marrakech «Grill of the hanging gardens» where food is prepared hot and fresh carries out this local tradition to offer at lunch time a charcoal barbecue restaurant on its rooftop terrace. The Grill is set around lush vegetation in the open-air, perfect to enjoy the view of the nearby Mosques and spot some White Storks in the blue sky.

The Grill menu offers various salads prepared on request, seafood freshly delivered from Oualidia, tasty meats, vegetables and fruits from the neighboring Ourika valley. Grilled meat on skewers? Served with local spices or natural?
Inspired by the Moroccan folklore, the skewers are served vertically on a specific display to amaze visitors. The home made french-fries are served in a clay pot imitating the original cones made from paper.

And under the shade, lunch continues in the magic atmosphere of La Sultana: Authentic, Unique and Confidential.


When craft becomes art

The special atmosphere that emanates from La Sultana Hotels comes from the exceptional richness of the work of master craftsmen (mâalems) who works to embellish.

The gate, and which gate! The eye does not know where to stop throughout the dexterity of Moroccan craftsmen is expressed and well known for the tradition and legacy.

Walls, ceilings, floors, stairs and banisters, windows, all are masterpieces of art.

We guess the talent of everyone’s work in brick, glorified as the time of the Almohads.
The cedar is beautifully developed, to impose its presence, chiselled piece to make air flowing.
The marble, full vein for columns, to reduce the strength of the stone, gypsum finely ground evokes the work of the meticulous bees. Zelliges, tadlakt, bejmat, coexist, succeed and respond.


Where luxury meets sustainability

La Sultana is situated in the midst of a remarkable ecosystem, the lagoon of Oualidia. From its very inception, the hotel was planned to minimise impact on its fragile environment. It took vision, money and technical resources to achieve the result: a hotel which is unique in its environmental approach and 100% sustainable in
its use of water.

From the outside, with its garden and buildings made from local stone, the hotel seems perfectly integrated with its surroundings. It imbues the place with a feeling of serenity and well-being.
But these are just the visible signs. Below ground runs a technical infrastructure consisting of miles of pipework. It is thanks to this that guests can enjoy five-star comfort with minimum strain on resources or damage to the environment.
All the water for La Sultana – from garden to hotel, from restaurants to swimming pools – is derived locally. Desalinated and filtered by osmosis, the water is soft and pure. It makes a shower or a dip in the hotel’s swimming pools a wonderfully sensuous experience.

Water for the swimming pools is treated by ionisation. It uses a process of electrolytic hydrolysis with a copper/silver cathode and anode. The copper prevents the build-up of algae while the silver helps eliminate bacteria.
It means that when the pools are drained for cleaning only pure, nonchlorinated water goes back into the lagoon.
A lot of time and effort went into finding a solution to recycling waste water. In the treatment area under the hotel, grey water from bathroom, shower and kitchen is degreased, oxygenated, homogenised and filtered.

This provides 40 cubic metres of water a day to irrigate the garden. Sewage water is recycled along underground conduits which use vegetation to break down bacteria. This age-old system, updated for modern needs, gives the garden nutrients to help it to flourish. The final part of the recycling process is evaporation, which takes place through the leaves of
the plants. 200 litres of water per day can be evaporated by a single mature eucalyptus tree.
Sea water from the lagoon, filtered and heated, is used for the jacuzzis.

Guests arriving at the hotel can bathe away their stresses and cares by plunging into a whirlpool of pure, warm ocean water while feeling the Atlantic breeze on their face.

We also thought carefully about heating and cooling systems for the hotel.Heating, air conditioning and dehumidifying are controlled by a waterto-water heat pump which takes water from the lagoon at 18 degrees centigrade in the winter and at 21 degrees in the summer months. The water is then distributed around the hotel as needed.

La Sultana Oualidia is at the forefront of revolutionary green technology. Using resources sustainably, it manages to ensure the comfort of its guests as well as the long-term welfare of the lagoon ecosystem.
