No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
In the heart of the quiet and well-restored Kasbah, surrounded by typical Moorish style homes where the local people go about their daily tasks. The area has not yet been overdeveloped for tourists and some may find the narrow alleyways a little intimidating after dark. The riad, the name of which means ‘hands’, is tastefully restored with many luxury orientated features and a charming roof terrace offers views over rest of the city towards the High Atlas Mountains.
A plain pink coloured exterior has a battlement like appearance from the outside whilst an inner courtyard has attractive flower festooned balconies.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms

A small entrance lobby has a passage leading to a delightful courtyard with its pool and lush shrubs. Two airy drawing/dining areas are furnished with authentic Moroccan sofas and low round tables are used for ad hoc dining and breakfast service. Casual dining takes place at any location to suit the guest and there are steps, some unrailed, throughout the property.
A central courtyard has a tiny pool with a minute palm tree island. A rood terrace is more spacious and is used for al fresco dining and relaxation on the few sunloungers or under a wide canopy.
