We have worked day and night to make sure that our brand new, all-suite riad stands out in the crowd. We believe what we have created is unique that it interprets a vivid and modern take on classic Moorish architecture, complemented by clean lines and restrained décor.

From top to bottom, our local artisans have crafted unique and fetching furnishings that give a sense of place and comfort.

For example, our lampshades were custom-ordered, the woodwork was all handmade (look out for the handsome lattice screen, locally called a ‘menzeh’), a leather-covered ceiling fan. There are lime plaster tadelakt walls, marble flooring in the courtyards and the fabrics were predominately hand-woven. A modern spin has been put on classic design, so while you’ll recognise the traditional etching typically found on a Moroccan railing, you’ll notice that we have had it rendered in modern glass.

In between welcoming visitors old and new, we’re busy toasting all the wonderful artisans who have helped us to create one of the most stylish places to stay in North Africa. We hope to have you with us very soon.
