Riad Accomodation

The subject “What is a Riad!” comes to many tourists mind and in fact, many people wonder its origin. The word Riad comes from the Arabian term for garden, “Ryad”. Also Riads follow a specific architecture and house structure: Entrance halls, Patios, Corridors, dining areas, rooms, relaxing areas, terrace. We present you many photos of many parts of riads in Marrakech. We hope you enjoy. During your stay at a riad, you will enjoy the attentive, personalized service by the riad staff. As most Riads are quite small, the hospitality is intimate. It is not unusual for the riad’s owner; or manager to greet you upon arrival and for the staff to offer you a welcoming glass of mint tea. Only a few examples of the warm Moroccan hospitality you will experience during your riad stay.

Styles of Riads vary, as each Riad is decorated to the satisfaction of the owner. The majority of Moroccan Riads today blend the beloved traditional design elements of Zeliej (tile work); plaster work, and cedar features with Art Decor era or more modern accents. Some Riads provide more modern amenities than do others. All Riads do, however, retain one thing in common: they are places of peaceful beauty and authentic Moroccan hospitality.

Also Morocco Riads and Hotels are amazing place to stay in Morocco

Riad Inside Old Medina

Riad a traditional Moroccan house, located within an ancient medina (walled city); which is designed around a central courtyard and/or garden. These beautiful homes have restored to reflect traditional Moroccan decor; yet to also provide guests with many of the modern amenities found in 4 and 5 star hotels. As you approach a riad from one of Morocco’s narrow, labyrinthine streets; you will likely notice that each door in the grey stone and plaster walls looks fairly similar. The doors are usually made of a carved wood with a tiled step entrance. Some doors may have their own personality; some boast large, handcrafted knockers while others are decorated with large rounded nail heads.

When you open the door to a Riad; you will enter into a hallway that does not yet permit you a glimpse into the heart of the house. This ‘layered’ effect of walls, doors; and hallways is both an historical privacy feature for the residents of the house; allowing the outside door to be open to the public, while offering protection for those within. Also creates a sound barrier against the noise of the streets. As you pass from the bustling streets; through the nondescript exterior and into the central courtyard/garden of a Riad; you may be surprised and delighted by tranquil, elegant beauty you find within. Riads often described by visitors as “diamonds in the rough!”
