Sheltered from the sea by the enormous Oualidia saltwater lagoon, La Sultana occupies a unique plot of land with an unbeatable view of a distinctive and rare ecosystem. The stone building is topped with Islamic domes and sits amongst palms, just meters from a tranquil beach and even closer to the infinity pool. If the calming views of the Atlantic are all too much then retreat to the in house spar, which nestles in the heart of the main building and relax even further.
Sheltered from the Atlantic winds not only by the lagoon, but also by headlands at either end La Sultana really is in a world of its very own. Around 120 miles from Marrakech and perched on the coast Oualidia enjoys cool sea breezes and the fruits of the local oyster beds. The hotel’s unique position lends itself to relaxation, being set within lush green gardens that are sustained using environmentally friendly recycling systems. The lagoon’s sandbanks make for placid waters that sparkle with the sun’s rays.
The 11 suites that make up La Sultana are dressed in pale stonewashed colours and flooded with natural light. Exposed brickwork and oleander branch ceilings accentuate the rustic feel of the suites, while plush bathroom fixtures act as a reminder of the quality and craftsmanship that surrounds. Relax on the sun deck, or under a palm, or take in the views of the local boats passing by on the lagoon.
Why we like it
La Sultana was designed to be kind to its surroundings both in its architectural qualities and in the various ways that the management act to ensure its sustainability credentials. You will love the calming open spaces and the interplay of the lagoon, sand and sky.
