Beyond the regular criteria essential for a leading spa today, the Spa at
La Sultana Marrakech is original in that it corresponds in every way
to our imagination of the oriental tales of our childhood. … While the
modern globetrotter demands a place to restore Zen, La Sultana Spa
reaches further with its atmosphere reminiscent of the ancient
bathhouses, where immersing in purifying water would be a sacred
ritual. No doubt because of the rose marble columns that intersect into
arches at the ceiling, recalling Egyptian or Roman temples. No doubt
because of the light from the chandeliers made of sculpted copper that
reflects lace patterns in the air. Because of the perfumed vapours rising
from the turquoise water of the long central basin, which sits as an
invigorating natural source originating from the centre of the
Earth...
La Sultana Spa, so intimately linked to our imagination, so in sync
with our dreams, resembles none other.

On the immense rooftop terrace overlooking the red city’s historic centre, the restaurant in La Sultana’s hanging gardens is a dream come alive.
In summer, when the sun sets on the horizon among the palm, orange and olive trees, the tables are set in harmony.
The tablecloths, in immaculate white, stand out against the grounds covered with oriental carpets and soft lights shine like stars, playing like mirrors against the sky.
A musician makes the air sweet as honey by the sound of his lute, as his melody follows the rhythm of the waiters’ discretely orchestrated comings and goings.
In this elegant atmosphere, refined dishes are savoured like mysterious potions. The chef’s creations combine the subtleties of revisited traditional Moroccan cuisine with flavours from other lands.

Marrakech, the ancestral stop on the journeys of the caravans, unveils her most intimate charms. La Sultana transforms itself like a mirage into a lavish bivouac in a desert oasis and provides contentment in the present with generosity.

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.

Located in a superb location on the Atlantic coast, in the heart of a lagoon, La Sultana Oualidia must pay particular attention to seafood.

The close proximity of the ocean is a major asset and a natural privilege indisputable. But the desire for fresh products has grown Sultana build pools of sea water embedded in its walls of stone to ensure and guarantee their quality.

Also arriving on the tables crustaceans, clams and razor clams, prawns and lobsters, of impeccable quality.

Also grilling just caught fish with brilliant shells on the beach.

The seafood tray so appetizing to begin a meal with varies depending on the fortunes of fishermen. The flesh of the crab shine on a bed of smooth guacamole and the fish of the day is the last surprise of the moment, sole, sea bream, sea bass, red mullet ... the key parameter, the fundamental value is the freshest ingredients.

Thus, the waterfront, La Sultana Oualidia offers dishes with intact Flavours so prized by a guaranteed taste for its guests.

Artisans are guarantors of tradition and creativity. Their knowhow preserves the traditions carried on from the past and maintain them for the future.

With passion and determination, La Sultana demonstrates its bond with traditional art and knowhow, while integrating it into modernity.

It has committed to promote these artistic traditions, which have been integral part of Moroccan culture and heritage. La Sultana supports its own teams who have worked exclusively for her since the beginning. It has taken over five years for La Sultana Concept to complete the work. As for fine watch-making or haute couture, any design or restoration takes time. Sculptors, engravers, painters have been working on various materials, such as marble, plaster, wood and copper.

Local artists have used tadelakt, stucco, and zelliges with innate talent inherited from generation to generation.

La Sultana shares a wall with the mausoleum of the Saadian princes, which is the most prestigious and best preserved representation of Andalusian and Moorish monuments in the entire Maghreb.

It has been inspired from this exceptional close proximity with Saadian art. Over a dozen old riads belonging to royal servants and their side street represent the basis of its establishment. La Sultana has carefully preserved this unique character.

Thus, a stay at La Sultana represents a close encounter with Moroccan history, and particularly that of the Saadian Dynasty.
