16 Jan Sahara Palace Hotel, Marrakech Morocco
We had sole access to so many parts of the hotel and even got a private tour of the Royal suite where the Sex and the City 2 ladies stayed and also filmed the most iconic scenes in the movie! The staff were very friendly, attentive and nothing was too much for them to do for the guests, they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, happy and relaxed.
To say it was an unbelievably amazing experience with staff being extremely attentive, welcoming and being treated like princesses would be an understatement! It was a priceless moment staying in a beautiful palace literally fit for a King and/or Queen.
If you are looking to for a peaceful, luxurious place to stay for a bit of adulting, relaxation and self-care, Sahara Palace, Marrakesh is an amazing option. If you want to party and love the night life, there are many lovely restaurants like Maison K and L’Annexe to try out or it’ll be best to stay closer to the city centre, you can always take a taxi to the nearest local bar/restaurant. Going into town for shopping, excursions and night life and the comfort of coming back to a palatial hotel with your needs catered to, will always be my option!
The newly improved Sahara Palace hotel is definitely on my radar of one of the places to revisit once lockdown eases.
The following year (2014) the hotel was under new management when we decided to revisit and took our partners along for birthday celebrations. Unfortunately, the great customer service experience we thoroughly enjoyed during our first visit was totally lacking during the second stay. We found out the next day that the hotel was in the middle of its new management reign so they were still trying to find their feet. Since then, the initial company that took over in 2014 has now sold to the Park Hotels Collection who took over in 2015. I hear the level of service has very much improved under the new management. I will definitely be willing to give the hotel a second chance and will be providing an updated blog after my next visit once things return to normal post COVID-19.
