An authentic riad is its own little universe. The word means, roughly translated, as a 'little paradise'.

As seen from the outside, a riad looks like an enclosed building, almost like a small fort with high walls, a door and small window openings.

Walking inside, the building opens up to its full glory. There is a small garden with at least one fountain, sometimes more.The circulation of the water makes the air cooler inside the riad. An ancient type of air conditioning that make the hot periods moore comfortable.

Today at the riad we use both the traditional fountains and modern air condition when necessary.

A riad in Marrakech will usually have a tea room, as well as a number of bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Often, the kitchen and storage rooms are on the ground floor. Up on the flat roof is a terrace where much of the home life takes place,
