Looking for a place to eat on a moody, rainy Marrakesh evening? Head over to La Sultana, one of the Ochre City’s most enchanting hidden palaces, for a romantic dinner by the pool.
The entire inner courtyard is covered by a plastic roof at night, so you still feel like dining out under the stars, with the relaxing sound of raindrops acting as background music. Try to score a table in one of the candle-lit alcoves for maximum effect.
La Sultana is worth a visit by day as well, as the place has everything to fulfill your wildest One Thousand And One Nights fantasies: hidden plunge pools, lush greenhouses on the roof overlooking the neighboring Moulay El Yazid mosque, a truly magical indoor spa and swimming pool, exotic lamps and furniture, the coolest striped staircase in the history of striped staircases (I think I took over a 1001 pictures of it), hanging gardens, and of course softer than soft cushions for dreamy lounging afternoons
