La Sultana Oualidia
La Sultana Oualidia is a hidden gem. The perfect break point for the road journey from Casablanca to Essaouira, or vice versa, the picturesque fishing village of Oualidia has become a popular destination for wealthy Moroccans. It is the perfect place to pause, to fish or sail on the placid lagoon, to walk and birdwatch in the salt-water marshes and to feast on the best seafood of the Atlantic coast.
Traditional Kasbah style is brought together with touches of tropical chic at this beautiful property. Lounge on a plump daybed by the hotel swimming pool and be pampered at La Sultana Hotel’s spa. As evening draws in, choose to dine on fresh seafood at the hotel, either on the secluded beach or in the restaurant overlooking the lagoon.
La Sultana Oualidia’s interiors have been styled with Moroccan authenticity enhanced by modern comforts, where marble bathrooms and antique artwork speak of pure luxury. The rooms all face the lagoon, and some have a private terrace from which to admire the breathtaking surroundings.
