Romantic Riads

A riad is a traditional Moroccan home; for a truly authentic city break, a stay in a riad in Marrakech or Essaouira, just moments from the bustling Medina is a wonderful choice for a real sense of the best of Morocco.

Rooms are inward facing and built around a central courtyard and at its heart lies a fountain or small pool, surrounded by sweet scented flowers and fruit trees.  These beautiful houses are usually incredibly ornate in design, with intricate zellije tiles, beautiful arches, hand painted ceilings, and colourful, marble-like tadelakt bathrooms.

Riads also have wonderful flower-filled roof terraces, where in warmer months, meals are often served and there is plenty of space to relax and sunbathe whilst taking in the views over the rooftops of the Medina.

Despite having stayed in an abundance of riads over many years of visiting Morocco, we are still always astounded by how relaxing and peaceful these charming properties are; after a busy day out exploring, it’s always a joy to come home and unwind; sip a refreshing glass of mint tea in the cool courtyard and listen to the birdsong and the gently tinkling fountain before enjoying a romantic meal by candlelight. Many of these traditional homes have been converted into charming small boutique hotels in Marrakech and Essaouira.  Mint Morocco offer some stunning riads to suit all budgets.  Although we know riads are undeniably romantic, they are also absolutely perfect for a get together for a special occasion and we can help you arrange for a family or group of friends to take over a whole riad exclusively for an exceptional and unique event or celebration.
