Indulgence in Morocco
|Wine & Oyster tasting experience|
Indulge yourself in a wine and oyster tasting at Hotel La Sultana Oualidia, step on board a traditional fishing boat to discover Oualidia's oysters and learn about oyster farming on the lagoon, which dates from the 1950's. The tour is followed by a tasting of 6 oysters per person with a glass of the local white wine at the O bar. This is the best way to escape at the end of the day and indulge in the local aperitif.
The Wine & Oyster Tasting Includes:
- Visit to Oualidia's oyster beds on traditional fishing boats
- Half a dozen oysters per person at the O Bar
- A glass of wine at the O bar
|Hot Air Balooning - From the sky with love|
La Sultana Hotel Marrakech offers a hot air balloon experience. Floating across the sky at sunrise, above the arid plains of Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains, is an incredible way to start the day; whether it is to celebrate a special occasion or make a dream come true. Enjoy the simple pleasure of the flight and customise according to your taste or the occasion with a seated breakfast in the balloon basket. Included in the balloon experience are; a car transfer (at 5 am) to take you to the take-off site (15 km), Berber breakfast and balloon flight for 2 persons.
Morocco truly is a shopper's paradise and the bazaars and markets provide infinite opportunities to splash some cash. Leather goods are very popular, particularly in Marrakech as bags, belts, wallets and shoes are all made within the walls of the medina, right from the early stages of tanning the hides to the craftsmanship of creating the final product. Homewares are another favourite amongst shoppers and you will find beautiful textiles, hand-woven rugs, and intricate copper and brass lanterns of all shapes and sizes, as well as traditional tea sets and tagines to impress your friends with a Moroccan-themed evening back home. If you're looking for something a little bigger then consider purchasing some hand-carved wooden furniture like for example a side table with inlaid mother-of-pearl; a popular choice and something that you will see all over Morocco from berber tents to the finest hotels.
Morocco is home to restaurants serving cuisine from all corners of the globe, from Asian fusion to Italian, and from street food to fine dining; there really is a cuisine to suit everyone. Many of our Morocco hotels pride themselves on their exquisite dining using local fresh ingredients and spices, and most hotel restaurants are open to non-residents as well as booked guests, including L'hotel Marrakech, Kashbar Tamadot, La Sultana Marrakech and La Sultana Oualidia (all non-residents must book in advance for these hotels). As you may expect, the resorts of the Atlantic Coast are abundant with restaurants offering fresh fish and seafood so pescatarians are well catered for.
All of the hotels in our collection benefit from world-class spa and wellness centres to fully lose yourself in with facilities that include hammams, outstanding treatments, hairdressing salons, fitness centres and saunas/steam rooms. We also have several riads and villas where spa treatments can be enjoyed to enhance your Moroccan experience. These include Villa Zin, Dar Housnia, Riad Timila, Palais Tafoukt, and the properties on the Ezzahra Estate; Alkhozama, Azzaytouna and Ezzahra. Plenty of options for when pampering is a necessity on your holiday.
