My fiancé and I made plans ahead of time before arriving to Les Terres to get married on the premises, just the two of us, then honeymoon there. Souheil, the manager was very quick to respond and very dear to work with in our planning efforts.
My fiancé and I arrive to Les Terres by a car arranged from the hotel, as we stayed in the medina for a few days before heading to Les Terres. The driver was right on time, and this was a miracle given how much of a zoo the downtown is. He was very kind.
We arrived to Les Terres via a nicely marked roadway to the resort. We were greeted at the reception by three hotels employees with hot tea, towels, cookies and nuts. Two of the employees work at the front desk and one was a spa employee. They reviewed the hotels services and amenities in very nice English. Sometimes if a word or explanation was unclear we communicated in French as I speak some.
The hotel reception desk employee escorted us to our room, where our bags were waiting. The hotel had very kindly upgraded us for our 12 night stay. Sitting in the room was a bottle of wine, a very sweet note from Souheil, the manager, and gorgeous flower petals on the bed. The room was GORGEOUS, complete with our own backyard terrace and rose garden. The suite contained two fireplaces one off the sitting area off the bedroom (by a coffee maker and treats) the other in a massive bathroom. The bathroom has beautiful light fixtures, two large sinks French doors that lead to a patio, and a beautiful, elevated 6 ft bathtub. The room had a gorgeous mosquito net above a king size bed. There were shutters on each window so you could make it as dark or as light as you’d prefer, perfect for naps! The décor was gorgeous in the room- some imported from India…a platform bed, luscious rugs and very nice woven goods. We enjoyed the TV from bed as it swivels from the sitting area to the bed. There is even a day bed on the porch with two butterfly chairs…you can access it from the bed/bathrooms.
The grounds were just as beautiful as the room. Meticulous greenery, gardens, foliage- it was eden. What made Les Terres wasn’t just the facilities, restaurant, spa, bars, farm, pool, or fountain, it was the people. Each day we loved seeing Maria and Abdel samad, two of the employees at the restaurant. They became dear friends who now I talk to weekly! They have beautiful hearts that were so open to meeting new people.
We are big room service fans and enjoyed it many times during our stay. Most days we enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the terrace. Breakfast was lavish! Abdel samad’s home made yogurt was my favorite! Each breakfast contained yogurt, goats cheese, eggs cooked to order, pancakes (sweet ones and ones with meat and herbs)
We enjoyed the amenities...pool, farm, spa--- etc. We enjoy running and enjoyed lapping around the property in the desert.
Everyone took such good care of us. We loved their 5 dogs on the property, it made us feel just like home and was the icing on the cake.
Speaking of cake...the staff evening surprised us with a beautiful wedding cake as a gift. So very touching. We worked with Souheil on plans ahead of time and he arranged for a floral bouquet and the ladies at the spa to help me get ready. The afternoon of the wedding the staff helped with all of the arrangements and prepared as a loving gesture a romantic dinner for the two of us.
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to travel to all but one. I always pick designer/small boutique properties with a 5 star atmosphere, but not the $500-1,000 US price. Les Terres is the perfect place to go and relax and is the best of the best, is romantic, but seemed fine for the families there as well. Go and visit and let Maria, Abdel and Souheil and the others take wonderful care of you!
All rooms are nice and quite different....
