A calm, quiet, exclusive place to return to after a day out exploring. Take a refreshing dip in the pool. Indulge in a siesta, curl up with a book on the oversized lounges. Venture up to the rooftop terrace – bask in the sun, lingering over a pot of mint tea or glass of wine to watch the sunset over the Atlantic ocean. Enchanted evenings are inevitable. Savour delicious Moroccan cuisine surrounded by traditional lanterns and candle light. In winter, spend time next the the warmth of the crackling fire and let the smokey scent of native almond wood remind you that you are in the south of Morocco…
A riad is a Moroccan architectural style of house, built around an openair courtyard garden. Typically, a refreshing fountain flows amid fruit bearing trees in a simple symmetrical layout. Windows face inward. Arched doorways, ornately carved wood and plaster adorn the upper walls and ceilings. Mesmerising tile patterns in dazzling colours decorate the floors and walls, creating an almost overwhelming feast for the eyes.
Often underestimated from the exterior, a riad is more than just a building. Once you enter, the world outside is instantly forgotten. A harmonious, calming and inspiring sentiment takes over… this is the charm and allure of the “Riad Experience”
Many historic riads in the medinas of Fes, Marrakech and Essaouira have been converted into guest houses bursting with character. And often boast prestigious pasts. Due to their popularity, these days the term ‘’riad’’ invokes the idea of an unforgettably unique guest house experience. Many might say, a trip to Morocco is not complete without spending at least one night in a riad.
An authentic riad experience you’d expect to find in the buzzing medinas of Marrakech or Essaouira. At Riad Dar Haven, there is no need to sacrifice comfort for tradition, you can enjoy both in harmony.
Quality new construction has a very natural and modern feel, and features traditional Moroccan craftsman details. Guest comfort is emphasized through well planned plumbing and electrical installations. Quality bedding ensures a good nights sleep, so you’ll wake up fresh and truly well rested.
