After Marrakech, Go to Oualidia, the Montauk of Morocco BY VOGUE USA

We are thrilled to share another VOGUE article about Oualidia written by LANE NIESET

"On the two-hour drive from the Casablanca airport, the landscape doesn’t change much. Not that I’m complaining. There’s something otherworldly about Morocco’s sea of caramel-colored sand dunes. The driver takes a quick right turn and starts off-roading, weaving around rocks on a narrow dirt path. When he suddenly stops, I blink my jetlagged eyes. A Moorish, stone-covered fort—the village’s only luxury hotel, palace-style La Sultana Oualidia—stands guard in front of a lagoon, the sea roaring with foam-topped waves in the distance.

I’d heard whispers about Oualidia but had yet to meet anyone who had actually visited the village. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and a saltwater lagoon on the other, Oualidia is a paradise of pink flamingos and oyster farms—the place locals gather for straight-from-the-sea shellfish (making it known as Morocco's oyster capital) and a glass of crisp, Moroccan white wine. In the 1940s, King Mohammed V built his summer palace along the water, decreeing Morocco’s first royal beach. The palace is now empty, but guards still protect the royal ruins, which blend in amongst the villas that dot the rust-red cliffs.

“For Moroccans, Oualidia is the high-end seaside destination that used to be home to the royal family, and since then, many wealthy families have followed,” explains La Sultana Oualidia’s head concierge, Nabil. Just as Saint-Tropez draws jetsetters each summer, chic Marrakshis and Casablancais still mimic the royals in August, descending on the under-the-radar surf town that’s quickly becoming the Montauk of Morocco. It’s one of the country’s best-kept surf secrets (the current king’s kids even come here to surf)—and since temperatures never dip below 64 degrees, you can hit the waves year-round.

It’s early November and there’s a slight chill in the air as we step on the motorboat and whisk across the lagoon to Surfland, a Quiksilver-sponsored surf camp started in the 1990s, where many of Morocco’s pros train, and where masters like Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones come to surf. “The site remains preserved from the masses of surfers, compared to spots in the south like Imsouane or Taghazout, where it's overcrowded,” says Surfland’s founder, Laurent Miramon. “The advantage of Oualidia is the bay, which is like a natural wave garden; whatever the size of the swell, you are guaranteed surf every day.”

We zip up our wetsuits and jump back on the boat, heading to a beginner-friendly spot in the center of the lagoon. Glancing at the waves crashing against the portal of pale rocks opening to the sea in the distance, I take a second to shake off my nerves before the instructor gently glides my board through the clear-as-glass water, shouting an encouraging “Allez!” Go!

Waves roll slowly, offering beginners plenty of opportunities to practice rising to their feet and riding to shore, while more advanced surfers cross over into the Atlantic, vying for a place at famous surf spot “Les Tomates,” named after the neighboring tomato farm. In spring and fall, birdwatchers flock to the lagoon and its salt marshes (a natural reserve) on boat safaris to see over 400 species, from white egrets to pink flamingoes that make the migration on the east-Atlantic route.

Red-and-green-painted fishing boats bob on the water as we cruise around the crescent-shaped lagoon to another one of its claims-to-fame: oysters. Modest, whitewashed buildings outfitted with Tiffany blue-colored shutters line the shore, housing restaurants and oyster farms. Seven farms drive the region’s oyster production, one of the most famous being Maison de l’Ostréa, which produces 200 tons of shellfish per year.

There’s more to Oualidia than oysters, Nabil is quick to remind us as we hike across a sandy dune where a photoshoot-worthy picnic sits tucked beneath honey-colored cliffs. Rattan-topped stools and a white-tableclothed table greet us under a tent supported solely by sticks, a beachfront version of a Bedouin camp. La Sultana Oualidia’s culinary team, meanwhile, is prepping a seaside barbecue worthy of a royal reception. First to arrive: platters of freshly shucked oysters, sourced from the neighboring farms we just visited. Next, the cook presents spider crabs the size of coconuts, so large they are nearly double the width of his palm. A light, floral white wine from Val d’Argan, near the port town of Essaouira where camels plow the organic vines, pairs perfectly with the briny oysters, leaving us with a nice midday buzz.

While Essaouira’s UNESCO-listed medina (whose 18th-century ramparts form the backdrop of Astapor, the Red City in Game of Thrones) and beach resorts may be a more common pairing with Marrakech, Oualidia’s noticeable lack of hotels is part of the village’s charm. Besides La Sultana Oualidia, the family-run L’Hippocampe (now managed by the owner’s son) offers 23 contemporary rooms that feel like a laid-back beach bungalow (think beautifully tiled terraces overlooking the lagoon). On Saturdays, visitors make the trek by donkey carriage to the weekly souk, or market. Others head off in search of another treasure—traditional pottery—hand-crafted in the fishing port town of Safi, the “land of potters,” located an hour’s drive from Oualidia (and a popular surf spot for its wave dubbed “The Garden”—Morocco’s most powerful tube wave—which many consider to be the best in Africa).

Once you wrap up a day on the waves, soothe your muscles in the Sultana’s cathedral-inspired spa composed entirely of stone. Morocco is the land of argan oil (you can buy some of the purest right from the pharmacy, or herboriste), which works wonders for everything from your hair to your skin, especially when applied in massage form after a full-body scrub in a hammam, Morocco’s answer to the Turkish bath. After taking part in this traditional ritual, I strolled down a lantern-lined path to the sand as the sun started to set over the lagoon. Just when I thought there couldn’t be a scene more picturesque, I stumbled upon my dinner “table” that evening: hand-weaved carpets sprawled across the sand under a Berber tent, where wicker baskets held another Moroccan tradition, tajine."

Marrakech, Morocco

There are many benefits of visiting Marrakech in December.

Stay at the luxury five-star La Sultana Marrakech and spend Christmas or New Year's Eve gathering for dinner in a traditional berber tent.

We are thrilled to share Brides article about Oualidia follwoing Dan Koday stay at La Sultana Oualidia earlier this year:

Why Oualidia, Morocco Should Be on Your Honeymoon Radar This Year? by BRIDES USA

Moroccan charm + the beach = what could be better? 

"When you think of the North African country of Morocco, booming cities like Marrakesh and Fes probably come to mind—along with sights and smells of souks overflowing with treasures—but there’s one often overlooked coastal village that’s ideal for a romantic getaway for two, and that’s Oualidia.

This lagoon-shaped habitat is nestled in between El Jadida and Safi and offers plenty of charm and beauty for newlyweds seeking a unique escape, given its protected natural habitat and Mediterranean weather. It’s also commonly referred to as Morocco’s “oyster capital,” so you can expect to feast on shellfish 24/7 while visiting.

How to get there:

Oualidia is about two and a half hours from Marrakech and two hours from Casablanca by car, so driving to the town from either the international Marrakech Menara Airport or the Casablanca Airport is the easiest way to go. (And the scenic drive will definitely provide lots of ample opportunities for Instagramming your travels.)

Where to stay:

La Sultana Oualidia. As one of the small luxury hotels of the world (with only 12 rooms and suites available for guests), checking into this boutique gem is somewhat like living an Arabian dream—complete with flocks of pink flamingos everywhere. Not only is it stunning and isolated off the beaten path, but they offer everything lovebirds could want or need: Intimate terraces with outdoor Jacuzzis, sweeping views of the sea, an abundance of adventure and wellness activities like beach hikes, paddle boarding, surfing, bird watching safaris, and fat biking, and a tranquil setting at the edge of the Atlantic. They also provide several honeymoon and romance package options, which consist of welcome glasses of champagne, drawn bubble baths with rose petals, and spa treatments and a “Royal Hammam” just for you and bae.
 

Where to eat:

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind dining experience, look no further than La Sultana’s Berber Tent that’s perched in the sand pop-up style with exotic tapestries and ottomans fit for luxe beachside picnic. You’ll savor specialties like sea-perch in a salt crust, lobster, bouillabaisse, grilled meats and vegetarian dishes soured from the onsite garden for an unforgettable meal. Other nearby options for casual fare include the relaxed L'Initiale Hotel-Restaurant—which also has very affordable prices—and Ostréa II for seafood platters and oysters served a myriad of delicious ways."

It seems each year brings a destination de rigueur, and PureWow have got some predictions on what’s next with Marrakech in the Top 9.

How they decide? A little bit of trend data from Google Flights and Hotel Search, plus carefully scouring the globe for what’s generally great—from budget to luxury and adventure. They shortlisted nine cities to dog-ear for 2019 and Marrakech is one of them.

Where to stay: La Sultana, a luxurious and intimate respite from all the craziness—complete with its heated outdoor swimming pool.

A trip to Marrakech is not for the faint of heart. To fully enjoy it, you’ll need to embrace the chaos that is the Red City. The historic city center—or Medina of Marrakech—is a walled, medieval city dating back to the 11th century and the Berber Empire. Get lost wandering its tangle of colorful alleyways, stopping to shop at the lively souks (markets) and bazaars. Other must-visit sites include the Koutoubia Mosque and the Bahia Palace. Temps can be brutally hot in the summer months, so consider planning your visit during the shoulder seasons of March to May or between September and November.

Honored the Spa of La Sultana Marrakech be listed amongst the "8 Luxury Spas To Add To Your Bucket List" by VOGUE. Let's plan a Spring Pamper and read their review.

The Hidden Gem

La Sultana Spa, Marrakech

Marrakech’s treasures are hidden behind unassuming doors. Nestled in the heart of the Medina, La Sultana offers the most intimate of deluxe properties in the city. Truly authentic to its heritage – from the rooms to the spa – it transports guests to another time. A maze of corridors leads to courtyards, each its own paradise. Trees are laden with fruit, a lap pool is surrounded by hanging bougainvillea, and a single fountain trickles, the drips rhythmically echoing throughout the building. The spa is small in size – as if you’re stepping onto a movie set – but big in character. The fire-heated space is lined with treatment rooms, where therapists work with local ingredients like argan, orange blossom, prickly pear, and rose oil and draw upon techniques passed down from generations. The spa’s special showers spray every part of your body simultaneously, so after an exfoliating black soap all-over scrub, you benefit from the healing power of water. Lasultanahotels.com

We are glad to share What We Adore beautiful review after their lunch at La Sultana Marrakech.

La Sultana – The perfect detox lunch at a mind blowing place in Marrakech!

What a marvelous place this is.

When you are looking for the perfect place to have lunch in Marrakech, La Sultana is the answer.

La Sultana Marrakech is an intimate 5-star Deluxe Hotel, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World & Traveller Made Hotel Partner.
Designed for lovers of hotels where every piece of architecture is unique.

The place is ideally located in the old city just a stone’s throw from the main attractions, ten minutes walk from Jemaa El Fna square.

La Sultana is consisting of five separate riads (old couryard houses) from different periods that have been updated and combined to make one of the most spectacular buildings in Morocco. Take your time to look at the mind blowing architecture of the hotel when you get there. The lovely staff will guide you up to the marvelous terrace, and all you have to do by then is sit down, and let yourself go.

For lunch, La Sultana offers authentic « Charcoal Grill » and seasonal gourmet suggestions. A quiet break on the rooftop with views on the Medina, ideally located between the souks of the Kasbah district, the Saadian Tombs (that you can see from the rooftop) and the visit of the Palace El Badi, Bahia and the Jemaa El Fna square.

I had found my perfect place on that mind blowing rooftop, with a view over the mountains, a bright blue sky and the birds singing. What a true feeling of well being this place gives you just by chilling on the rooftop…. it’s beyond beautiful.

At first, I was served a fresh tomato gazpacho – a little attention from the chef, with some olives and home made bread. Excellent start!

I choose the Detox Salad as entrée that comes with quinoa, fennel, avocado, lava beans, mesclun, flaked almonds and quail eggs, served with a detox juice made out of kiwi, spinach, celery and apple. The perfect choice to get some energy for the day and to do something good for your body and soul, it was delicious! I love ‘detox’ food and have been eating and trying a lot of these things lately, but this salad was so delish and on top was served in such a classy way. Healthy food dishes does not always look good as we know, but La Sultana has it all.

As main course I took the Supreme of free range chicken, potatoe purée and a trickle of truffle oil. The portion was perfect and not to heavy, the chicken was very soft and juicy and the purée was also super tasty. I really suggest to try this dish, but you should also try their Barbecue or the saffron-flavored fish Tagine.

As dessert it is likely to try the traditional mint tea with moroccan pastries, which they are famous for.

I stayed something like 3 hours with my book, as I enjoyed this place so much. My table was half in the sun half in the shade, there was a soft breeze and the sun was shining bright, I was just dazing, feeling happy and satisfied after this fantastic lunch meal that I did not even feel the time passing by…

The service was excellent as well, they pay attention to every detail but won’t overdo it, so that you still can feel your privacy and you’ll have a perfect moment of relaxation. This place is WAHOU !

We highly recommend the rooftoop Restaurant at La Sultana, it’s a must-do when in Marrakech.

We can’t wait to come back and dine there in the evening to watch the sunset…

What's to Love: If Marrakech is famous for its many charming riads, La Sultana dazzles the senses by offering several differently themed riads in one. The interconnecting buildings feel like an elaborate warren where no detail is too ornate or too fantastical. Yes, you have just stepped into the pages of 1,001 Arabian Nights. Just don't forget to spend at least one of them having dinner on the rooftop and another in the steamy hammam. If you want add even more to love, spend a few days at its beachfront sister property, La Sultana Oualidia.

Fathom hotel hopper Liza Foreman checks into one of the smallest, best, and hardest-to-find hotels in Marrakech.

MARRAKECH – La Sultana Marrakech is a hidden five-star gem. So hidden that if you didn't know where to find it on the main drag in the Kasbah, you might miss it. Look for bellboy in the regal red jacket guarding the entrance, beyond which lies the opulent hotel with a swimming pool, lovely roof terrace, and a multitude of nooks and crannies and tucked-away courtyards.

The award-winning property, which has earned accolades galore, is a fantastic labyrinth made up of five adjoining riads, a place where you could easily get lost for a few days.

Start in the Moroccan tiled spa. Mint tea is served in the main room (note the long hot tub in the center); treatments are done in the surrounding rooms. Afterward, savor the post-massage bliss in the atmosphere of your choosing: cocktail bar, outdoor swimming pool, reading library, or one of the hotel's many eclectically furnished seating areas.

Then make your way to the rooftop and experience the neighborhood without ever leaving the hotel. Choose your perch — restaurant, bar, solarium, plunge pool, or massage gazebo — and look out over rooftops to the towering Atlas Mountains. Flanking the scene is a tiny market for locals and the Saadian Tombs, one of the city's historic tourist attractions.

The restaurant menu is served on the roof in warm weather and on the patio in the winter. There's a standout breakfast buffet, including everything from fresh salmon (a rarity here) and Berber omelettes to Moroccan peanut butter served in tiny pots. Snacktime is just as wonderful: traditional Moroccan cakes, pineapple carpaccio, ice cream, and strong mint tea.
