Located in the historical centre of Marrakech, overlooking the famous Mosques of the Medina, The Grill of La Sultana is the ideal lunch spot to combine a visit of the imperial Kasbah district originally a citadel continually occupied by the Sultans of Morocco since the 12th century with local cuisine tasting & gourmet safaris.

The Grill (or charcoal barbecue) is part of the secular tradition of the Red City. At night, the Jemaa El Fna square turns into one of the world’s busiest open-air restaurants lit only by the light of the full moon and endless food stalls lights with smoke, steam and the smell of food everywhere.

The Kasbah Street, at the doorstep of the hotel, is also full of small food stalls where fires built in charcoal grills with fresh meats and vegetables are laid out for inspection.

La Sultana Marrakech «Grill of the hanging gardens» where food is prepared hot and fresh carries out this local tradition to offer at lunch time a charcoal barbecue restaurant on its rooftop terrace. The Grill is set around lush vegetation in the open-air, perfect to enjoy the view of the nearby Mosques and spot some White Storks in the blue sky.

The Grill menu offers various salads prepared on request, seafood freshly delivered from Oualidia, tasty meats, vegetables and fruits from the neighboring Ourika valley. Grilled meat on skewers? Served with local spices or natural?
Inspired by the Moroccan folklore, the skewers are served vertically on a specific display to amaze visitors. The home made french-fries are served in a clay pot imitating the original cones made from paper.

And under the shade, lunch continues in the magic atmosphere of La Sultana: Authentic, Unique and Confidential.


When craft becomes art

The special atmosphere that emanates from La Sultana Hotels comes from the exceptional richness of the work of master craftsmen (mâalems) who works to embellish. The gate, and which gate!

The special atmosphere that emanates from La Sultana Hotels comes from the exceptional richness of the work of master craftsmen (mâalems) who works to embellish.

The gate, and which gate! The eye does not know where to stop throughout the dexterity of Moroccan craftsmen is expressed and well known for the tradition and legacy.

Walls, ceilings, floors, stairs and banisters, windows, all are masterpieces of art.

We guess the talent of everyone’s work in brick, glorified as the time of the Almohads.
The cedar is beautifully developed, to impose its presence, chiselled piece to make air flowing.
The marble, full vein for columns, to reduce the strength of the stone, gypsum finely ground evokes the work of the meticulous bees. Zelliges, tadlakt, bejmat, coexist, succeed and respond.


Where luxury meets sustainability

La Sultana is situated in the midst of a remarkable ecosystem, the lagoon of Oualidia. From its very inception, the hotel was planned to minimise impact on its fragile environment. It took vision, money and technical resources to achieve the result: a hotel which is unique in its environmental approach and 100% sustainable in
its use of water.

From the outside, with its garden and buildings made from local stone, the hotel seems perfectly integrated with its surroundings. It imbues the place with a feeling of serenity and well-being.
But these are just the visible signs. Below ground runs a technical infrastructure consisting of miles of pipework. It is thanks to this that guests can enjoy five-star comfort with minimum strain on resources or damage to the environment.
All the water for La Sultana – from garden to hotel, from restaurants to swimming pools – is derived locally. Desalinated and filtered by osmosis, the water is soft and pure. It makes a shower or a dip in the hotel’s swimming pools a wonderfully sensuous experience.

Water for the swimming pools is treated by ionisation. It uses a process of electrolytic hydrolysis with a copper/silver cathode and anode. The copper prevents the build-up of algae while the silver helps eliminate bacteria.
It means that when the pools are drained for cleaning only pure, nonchlorinated water goes back into the lagoon.
A lot of time and effort went into finding a solution to recycling waste water. In the treatment area under the hotel, grey water from bathroom, shower and kitchen is degreased, oxygenated, homogenised and filtered.

This provides 40 cubic metres of water a day to irrigate the garden. Sewage water is recycled along underground conduits which use vegetation to break down bacteria. This age-old system, updated for modern needs, gives the garden nutrients to help it to flourish. The final part of the recycling process is evaporation, which takes place through the leaves of
the plants. 200 litres of water per day can be evaporated by a single mature eucalyptus tree.
Sea water from the lagoon, filtered and heated, is used for the jacuzzis.

Guests arriving at the hotel can bathe away their stresses and cares by plunging into a whirlpool of pure, warm ocean water while feeling the Atlantic breeze on their face.

We also thought carefully about heating and cooling systems for the hotel.Heating, air conditioning and dehumidifying are controlled by a waterto-water heat pump which takes water from the lagoon at 18 degrees centigrade in the winter and at 21 degrees in the summer months. The water is then distributed around the hotel as needed.

La Sultana Oualidia is at the forefront of revolutionary green technology. Using resources sustainably, it manages to ensure the comfort of its guests as well as the long-term welfare of the lagoon ecosystem.

La Sultana must develop with the same pomp the gastronomy and crafts of the Kingdom. Moroccan cuisine is an integral part of the legacy of past dynasties and as the craft has become art, traditional cuisine has become Gastronomy.

This is what La Sultana introduces its guests, promoting, alongside international flavours, selected dishes that symbolize the ancestral culinary traditions of Morocco.
First the necessary freshness and flavour impose themselves in the careful selection of local produce.

Then is essential know-how of a Moroccan chef assisted by two “Marrakechiates” female cooks repeating the same maternal gestures learned in childhood.
Finally arriving on the table, according to your desire, dishes that delight the eyes and palate.

What to choose between Tangia «as before» Dada Brika and the roast?
But the lord of the table is the traditional couscous Ghanmi and its seven vegetables. Dish full of colours, flavours and generosity, emblem of the kitchen of the Moroccan people.

If the kitchen of a nation shows the degree of culture, Morocco is also on this point, a kingdom. La Sultana, in perfect ambassador, demonstrates with consummate skill.

With the giant eucalyptus as the pride of Oualidia park, La Sultana Concept has found a way of awakening childhood
dreams lying deep within us: to sleep in a treehouse perched high in a tree.

La Sultana was bound to do it! This treehouse can be but one realization of the 1000 and 1 dreams La Sultana Signature has been striving to offer its guests.

Climb up rustic yet comfortable steps and open the door to a vast treehouse hidden among thick and fragrant foliage, in a world suspended in the air. The wooden space is an allegory to nature, where all the elements play together. One of the tree’s main branches penetrates the room. Through a large glass window spanning one wall, the entire horizon can be admired. This is a hymn to greenery, the earth, stone, sand, water and air. The landscape changes as the sun moves in the sky and the tides come and go. The room leads to a spacious terrace, where a sea-water jacuzzi awaits you for a bath where you are surrounded by nature. Dream or Reality?
