Tucked away in the northern section of the densely packed medieval city of Marrakech is Ryad Dyor. A chic riad with seven uniquely designed suites, lamplit courtyards, and a spacious rooftop. All complimented by elegant decor in a setting which blends modern design with classical moroccan flair.


The hotel was formed by combining two traditional riad’s to create an open air environment which joins a courtyard with a splash pool and another with palm tree’s and a fountain.  Upon arrival you will be met at the nearest taxi stand (as vehicles cannot navigate through the narrow alleyways of the medina) and your luggage will be carted to the doorstep of the riad. Step inside from the hustle and bustle of the medina and be welcomed by a three-tier stack of local sweets and traditional Moroccan Whiskey (mint tea). Savour the flavours as a representative from the hotel gives you some much needed pointers on the local area and how to navigate the map.


Each room is completely unique in it’s own regard yet share the common traits of Moroccan luxury. The Ennafora (ground floor) suite opens up into the central courtyard and houses an in-room fireplace which can be lit anytime at your request. The first floor offers numerous suites with various layouts, all stylishly decorated with Balinese mirrors, Moroccan textiles and copper lanterns. The Basha suite has stunning 5 metre high ceilings with 300 year old hand painted decorations, a tadelakt bathtub and a separate living area which can sleep additional guests.


Breakfast is served on the rooftop with a view of the Atlas mountains in the distance. You are given more then you can possibly consume and includes fresh Moroccan breads and pancakes, made to order omelettes, cheeses, home made jams, fresh fruit and yogurt along with all the fixings, including Nutella! Hand squeezed orange juice, coffee and mint tea are also there to kick start your day!

Private dining can be arranged with a little notice (let them know at breakfast), and is served in the elegant dining room just off the main courtyard. A romantic setting with candlelight and a beautiful Jimmy Nelson portrait of the Himba tribe. Enjoy delicious Moroccan salads, an incredible Chicken and olive tajine and finish it off with the best mint ice-cream you have ever tasted!

Ryad Dyor is in a prime location for exploring the city, just five minutes from the first souks and ten minutes from Jamaa el Fna. Once you’ve explored for hours and bargained to your hearts content, you will be ready to step back into the peaceful, tranquil oasis that Ryad Dyor offers. Give it a day or two to get your confidence up, and don’t be too concerned that you made the wrong left, then the wrong right and so on and so fourth. It will happen. It just makes it that much sweeter when you finally step back into paradise to call it a night.

    The uniqueness of each room is beautiful. I adore individually styled rooms which give a completely different ambience form each other. Could visit 5 times and have a different experience with each room. Great find.
