La Sultana Oualidia
Parc à Huîtres, Oualidia
An intimate, beach-y counterpart to La Sultana's original Marrakech property, La Sultana Oualidia is located within shouting distance of prime bird-watching spots, oyster beds (which supply the sunken dining room with some of the freshest seafood around), and the neighboring lagoon’s flamingo population. The twelve secluded living quarters—request a junior suite to accommodate extra beds if traveling with children—are designed with traditional Moroccan elements in mind (plaster walls, mosaic tiles, and gauze-draped canopy beds), plus, each comes with its own salt-water hot tub and flora-rich terrace. During the day, book a guided fishing trip, roam the property’s breathtaking gardens, or take a surfing lesson—but not before exploring the castle-like hotel’s majestic facilities, including an infinity pool and a private beach peppered with grass-roofed cabanas. Head to the on-site spa for a dip in the heated pool and an indulgent massage in one of the stone treatment rooms.
