Riad Dar Haven
Only 15kms north of Agadir city, in a quiet residential street at the heart of Tamraght village you will find Riad Dar Haven – A boutique guest house offering 9 individual rooms. With gentle ambient music and birds chirping, the riad provides a calm, quiet, exclusive place to return to after a day out exploring. Take a refreshing dip in the pool, gazing up at the climbing bougainvilleas in bloom and the clear blue skies above. Indulge in a siesta, curl up with a book or surf complimentary wifi on the oversized lounges. Venture up to the rooftop terrace to bask in the sun, lingering over a pot of mint tea or glass of wine to watch the sunset over the Atlantic ocean. In the evenings, savour delicious Moroccan cuisine surrounded by traditional lanterns and candle light. Or gather around for a movie in the indoor/outdoor cinema, enjoying the intimate poolside ambiance. In the winter months, spend time next to the warmth of the open fireplace and let the smokey scent of native almond wood remind you that you are in the south of Morocco…
What is a riad ?
A riad is a traditional Moroccan style of house, essentially planned around a central court yards with a water source such a fountain in the middle. Typically citrus trees are planted within the courtyard in a geometrical layout. Windows face inward and traditional architectural features such as arched door ways, ornate plaster and carved wood adorn the upper walls and ceilings. Often dazzling colours and patterned floor and wall tiles are used in a mesmerising manner to create an almost overwhelming feast for the eyes. A riad is more than just a building, usually a riad surprises the guest… Entering through a small door of an unimposing façade, a riad is often underestimated from the exterior. Once inside one easily forgets about the world outside and a harmonious, calming and inspiring feeling takes over…. and herein lies the charm and allure of ‘’The Riad Experience’’ Many authentic riad homes, particularly in the medinas of Fes, Marrakech and Essaouira have been converted into guest houses. And due to their popularity, these days in Morocco the term ‘’riad’’ invokes the idea of a ‘’unique guest house’’ Many might say, a trip to Morocco is not complete without spending at least a few nights in a riad. Come and experience it for yourself!
