Staying at a riad in Morocco

When travelling to Morocco it is a MUST to stay at a riad

But what is a riad in fact?

When we travel we usually find a hotel or hostel to stay in, depending on the budget. When travelling to Morocco one can do the same however I would recommend you to stay at a riad. A riad is a traditional Moroccan house characterized by having an inner square or garden. In fact, the word riad comes from the Arabic term for garden “ryad”.

Luckily, I had the chance to stay at Riad Tawargit during my stay in Marrakech. I was truly amazed by the beautiful interior of the place. When you step inside the riad you enter a beautiful garden with a jacuzzi located on the right side surrounded with palm trees and flowers. Around the square you’ll find small terraces where you can rest in the beautiful surroundings.

The rooms

A riad has typically no more than 10 rooms. Tawargit offers 5 rooms and 4 suites including their Caïdal tent, offering an exclusive view from the private terrace. All rooms are equipped with stylish and contemporary furnishing with a slight traditional Moroccan influence.
