A four-time winner of the World Hotel Awards "Soul Experience" prize, the luminous three-room and two-suite city palace will leave lucky guests breathlessly drunk on the thrill of new discovery. Most captivating, however, is the love story that took place behind AnaYela's closed doors: a 16-year-old girl and her beau once had clandestine nighttime meetings in the palace's Tapis Volant, or "flying carpet" tower. “I am Yela” are the opening words of handwritten manuscript that was discovered in a hidden room during re-construction. One of the most renowned calligraphers of Morocco, hammered the lovers’ tale in silver on the vast doors through the house, like pages in a book. As a Mecca of mystique, it's no wonder that guests feel as if they've stepped into mirage.

Andrea Bury started her professional career working in many divisions of corporate life, from advertising to PR to events to branding. After forming her own company, Calliope, and working with companies such as Deutsche Bank and Volkswagen, she set out to create experiences “that truly touch people,” as she puts it. Inspired by the life in Marrakesh, she started the fair-trade lifestyle label Abury to preserve traditional crafts and support the local artisan community. Bernd Kolb, an internet pioneer and visionary, strives to make the world a better place through his unique spirit. In 1993, he developed the first online advertising portal in Germany, followed by the first German e-commerce platform. In 2012, he set out to find the sources of the oldest documented wisdom teachings and published two bestselling photobooks—"Atman" and "Brahman".
