Like a castaway nestled in the sand of a vast desert beach, at the foot of the Cap Beddouza cliffs, Azalaï Beach Cottage is a paradise bathed in azure blue light, tucked away at the bottom of an idyllic garden. Palms, olive trees, cacti and mimosa make this ocean facing garden an extraordinary and unforgettable destination lulled by the surf and the rise and fall of the tides.


Our rooms

The main house dominates the garden and contemplates the ocean. The nine rooms face the ocean. Some rooms are found in the main house, just like being in a family home, while others are in bungalows tucked away in the middle of the garden. The décor is once again inspired by the travel writers who journeyed the oceans.

Lobster with baby garden vegetables

A recipe that showcases local flavours.
For two people:
800g lobster
1 litre fish stock
1 measure cognac
Vegetable mirepoix:
1 onion, 1 tomato, 1 bouquet garni, 1 clove of garlic
Poach the lobster in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes. Leave to cool then strip the flesh from the underside of the lobster. Bake it in the oven for 10 minutes, then add it to the previously prepared vegetable mirepoix. Add the bouquet garni and garlic clove
and return to the oven for 30 minutes. Transfer to a saucepan and mix with the fish stock. Add salt, pepper, and sweet paprika, then leave to boil for 30 minutes, adding the cognac and a teaspoon of cornflour to bring it all together.
Arrange the lobster on a plate. Garnish with a few medallions and a little sauce. Enjoy by the sea.


« But the true travellers are they who depart for departing’s sake »
Charles Baudelaire


Stay by the sea, splitting your time between glorious indolence and walks along the beach, enjoying platters of seafood and regional produce. Ensure that you also make time to visit the town of Safi

with its fifteenth-century Portuguese fortress built by Vasco de Gama and, a little further away, the ramparts in the fortified town of El Jadida. These are the delights that await those who travel to the coast.
A coast which is also home to artisan potters, with ceramics being the town’s major industry and the longstanding source of the region’s reputation.
From Potter’s Hill to Chaaba Valley and all the way to the Marabout of Sidi Abderrahmane, ancestral skills are passed down from generation to generation here, producing high-quality, internationally renowned traditional craftsmanship.
