La Sultana Oualidia

Morocco’s enchanting seaside escape

Luxury meets tranquility at La Sultana Oualidia, an enchanting retreat on the postcard-worthy shores of Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Nestled between the vast expanse of the ocean and a sparkling lagoon, the elegant property is a sanctuary of indulgence amid breathtaking natural beauty. Wake up to the gentle sound of waves caressing the shore from your opulent accommodations, each meticulously designed to reflect the rich heritage and sophistication of Moroccan craftsmanship.

Dubbed “the Montauk of Morocco,” La Sultana Oualidia promises a serene seaside escape, and the intimate 12-room treasure delivers on all counts. Indulge your senses with rejuvenating spa treatments, exhilarating watersports and ultra-fresh seafood harvested nearby. Thanks to the luxury hotel’s secluded location, you won’t feel the pull of the medina or the temptation to explore beyond your front doors. All you have to decide is where to perch along La Sultana Oualidia’s Instagram-worthy infinity pool.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Thanks to its location along an aquatic nature reserve, La Sultana Oualidia offers seemingly endless ways to commune with nature. Beachfront horseback riding, kayaking trips through the reserve, surf lessons and fishing excursions are among the activities the concierge can arrange for you.
  • The Oualidia hotel does its part to protect the nature reserve that it calls home with a fully self-sufficient water recycling program. Other sustainability efforts include an organic garden, a dedicated positive impact fund to finance eco-friendly initiatives in the area and a planned bottling facility to supply glass-bottled water to the entire property.
  • The four-room spa provides a peaceful hideaway, where skilled therapists dole out muscle-melting massages paired with signature Moroccan essential oils. Be sure to spend some time luxuriating in the blue-tiled hot tub, lit from above by a regal domed skylight.
  • Each of La Sultana Oualidia’s 12 rooms and suites makes the most of the resort’s spectacular seaside location with terraces and alfresco hot tubs. The Ocean Suite is a prime retreat for panoramic views, but the showpiece is the unique Treehouse Suite tucked away in a lush palm forest and equipped with private beach access.
  • Two excellent onsite restaurants ensure you won’t be famished during your stay. La Table de La Plage serves up flame-grilled fresh catches and organic vegetables from the resort’s own garden with a dash of sea vistas, while La Table de La Sultana focuses on locally sourced Moroccan cuisine prepared with French flair.

The Look

  • Designed to resemble a beachfront private home, La Sultana Oualidia embraces a classic coastal Moorish style with reclaimed stone and tadelakt plaster walls adorned with colorful antique-inspired furnishings and contemporary Moroccan artworks.
  • Inside, soaring ceilings and colorful stained-glass windows add to the retreat’s beachy yet historic vibe. Graceful arches, intricate tile work and ornate detailing add an enchanting sense of place to the Moorish mansion.
  • The cathedral-like spa is a beautiful fusion of rustic elegance and contemporary Moroccan style. The space feels like an ancient bathhouse with its reclaimed stone walls, sand-colored tile floors and lantern-lit ambiance.
  • Rooms in the boutique hotel embrace an antique beach atmosphere with soft neutral furnishings accented by pops of turquoise in glass chandeliers, embroidery and ceramics. Ornate mirrors and Moroccan lanterns add a local touch, though the highlight in every accommodation is the view.
  • Outdoor spaces are as thoughtfully curated as La Sultana Oualidia’s interiors. Meticulously landscaped grounds feature native foliage — think towering palms and flowering euphorbia — lining tranquil courtyards and terraces that invite you to unwind in complete serenity.
