A stay in a Moroccan riad is the perfect way to experience local history, heritage, culture, and charms whilst enjoying a pleasant and atmospheric stay. A riad is a grand and historic traditional-style house or palace with a garden or courtyard within the building itself. Many riads were once home to wealthy members of society, and a large number have been renovated and restored to their former glory, used for other purposes today. You will find restaurants, shops, and hotels housed within these splendid and atmospheric buildings, and a Moroccan riad is an ideal place to make your accommodation an integral part of your overall trip. Here is the compilation of Beautiful Moroccan Riads (Part 2).
Ryad El Fenn
Ryad El Fenn was created by Vanessa Branson, sister of Richard Branson. This one is set on the edge of the oldest part of Medina. It finely blends Moroccan style with western vintage design. If you are a colour lover, then this riad will surely wow you. There are unique pieces of furniture and baths that are either claw foot, moulded or sunken into the floor.
Riad Noir D’Ivoire
This place is all about comfort. There is a wooden pavilion with pretty cushions to relax. For those who like to splash around, there is a pool, gym and a hammam. The top has a private Jacuzzi attached to the three master suites and double sun beds. Every room is individually decorated with a mixture of Moroccan handicrafts and Syrian furniture.
This boutique riad hotel offers five double bedrooms and one grand suite. It also houses a stunning patio and a swimming pool. Get a scintillating view of the city with incredible views over Marrakech’s Medina, Koutubia’s mosque and Dar el Bacha’s Palace from the terrace.
Riad Honey, Marrakesh

The interior courtyard has a small inviting pool and lush greenery, making it a perfect spot to unwind after a fun day of sightseeing. Despite the theatrical entrance, you will probably be happy to find that the guest rooms are a lot more soothing in details and décor, creating the perfect blend within the building. With only eight rooms, you can be sure of a restful time. Sink into the comfortable four poster bed and enjoy your Arabian dreams!
This riad once belonged to Marrakech’s influential Tigani family. It was later bought by two French brothers, who transformed it into the Riad L’Orangeraie.

It has two amazing patios that makes way for immense luxury housing fountains, hammam, flowers and a mosaic swimming pool. Its roof terrace offers stunning views of the Atlas Mountains.
