A GEM BY THE SEA

This hidden gem goes hand-in-hand with ecology… On the Atlantic coast, between Safi and El Jadida, La Sultana Oualidia surveys the lagoon. One gazes at the ocean, as far as the eye can see. The tides provide the rhythm of life for guests in a landscape of hypnotic beauty.

An uplifting breath of life amidst luxuriant nature, La Sultana Oualidia is designed as a family home. With its private terraces, collections by designers, objects unearthed in markets, and contemporary paintings, guests can opt for the privilege of getting away from it all, or setting off to discover nature of insolent beauty.

The Conciergerie at La Sultana Oualidia sees that your dreams of freedom come true. Surfing, fishing, picnics facing the ocean, birdwatching, horse-riding… It anticipates and imagines memorable life experiences, suggesting a wide array of activities intended for a clientele on a constant quest for renewal.

La Sultana Oualidia offers 12 tastefully decorated rooms and suites, with private terraces and jacuzzis, a cabin suite perched in the trees, a swimming pool opening out to the lagoon, plus a heated indoor pool, a spa with treatment rooms, a gym, two restaurants and an oyster-bar with salty savours, an organic vegetable garden and a fish tank.

   In the midst of
   a nature reserve 


The enchantment of the lagoon where the tides creep in, setting the pace of passing time and painting a thousand fascinating scenes… Through the quality of this natural site of high ecological value at the edge of the ocean, La Sultana Oualidia beguiles, casts it spell, and soothes.

Between salt marshes and market gardens, oyster beds and local fisheries, La Sultana Oualidia unfurls its architecture of carved stone. Surrounded by its botanical collections, the hotel is a subtle, harmonious balance between an ecological approach and a commitment to architecture. A Babylon of prickly pears, palms, agaves, euphorbia, cereiform cacti, yuccas, aloes… nestles within the site, around bends and beneath suspended terraces.

At a time when questions are being asked about the genetic heritage of species and water resources, La Sultana Oualidia is 100% self-sufficient in water thanks to a natural cycle. It has succeeded in creating an environmentally friendly world which enjoys total autonomy, not harming its surroundings in any way. Each plant, each tree, is in fact an illustration of its natural setting, its original habitat, but also a future waiting to be invented.

After Marrakech, Go to Oualidia the Montauk of Morocco.

History & Culture
The tale of the ocean

Within the natural site offered by the Oualidia lagoon, maritime geography has a taste of adventure. In the 17th century, did the conche really protect pirates?

As the story goes, Dutchman Jan Janszoom van Haarlem, captured by Berber pirates, "turned Turk" by converting to Islam. Under the name of Mourad Rais, his career then began as a corsair in Salé, facing today's national capital of Rabat. Over the years, the influence of the Salé pirate grew in the Atlantic. After a series of bold expeditions, he was appointed Governor of the fortress of Oualidia.

Far removed from the tumultuous events of the past, set on a hillside, La Sultana is now a haven of serenity gazing towards the horizon. Sea breezes have wafted away the lagoon's myths and legends. There simply remains an oasis of peace, quiet and voluptuousness.

It is the perfect kind of place, unique in Morocco, to disappear for a few days on a high-comfort but low-key romantic break, cooled by the Atlantic breezes, and salinated by the region’s famous oysters (harvested sustainably near the hotel).
