The Riad

The riad hosts 4 guest bedrooms. One located on the ground floor and three rooms on the first floor, each decorated with hand loomed Berber carpets and artifacts from regions of the Atlas Mountains. All have bathrooms ensuite, two with full deep baths and two with showers. Nearly all furnishings are hand crafted, so we are continually having things delivered as they are finished.

Relax in the salon listening to the selection of North African music or dine by the fireplace in the cooler months. The courtyard, naturally shady and cool during the hot months is perfect for breakfast or tea. On the terrace, views of Ali Ben Youssef Mosque and peeks of the Atlas Mountains by day; by night the rising steam from Jemaa el Fna . Choose between the Moroccan sofa and traditional Berber sitting area or at the zellige tables under the Berber inspired umbrella for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Lounge under the magnificent Moroccan sun for a healthy dose of vitamin D. Or just relax with light appetizers and drinks before sunset and watch the strokes fly by.

Riad Ma’ab has free WiFi Internet access, an iron for those who have to. No TV’s by design.

We use 100% ecological cleaning products and washing detergents at the riad.  No artificial fragrances.  Natural Maroc incense, unscented candles, fragrant flowers and spices fill the air.  The cuisine is stocked with 2 cooking oils… olive oil and argan oil.  Fresh local produce and proteins are sourced for the best quality.  Meals are Berber inspired; simple, fresh and delicious.  Vegan and vegetarian meals are no problem.  We are happy to provide Moroccan wines and beer.
