MOROCCAN RIADS & HOTELS
Moroccan style and hospitality are legendary, and for our culinary tours we have selected accommodations that bring you the best of both. In Casablanca we stay in a 5-star modern hotel with traditional Moroccan decor. Everywhere else, our accommodations are in beautifully decorated Moroccan riad accommodations – traditional houses or palaces that have been converted into boutique guesthouses. All of our accommodations offer en suite bathrooms in comfortable, stylish rooms.
Night 1: We’ll spend our first night in Morocco in a comfortable 4-star hotel, centrally located in Casablanca.
Nights 2 & 3: The next two nights of our culinary tour are in Essaouira. We will stay in a gorgeous ocean-front Moroccan riad, converted from a nineteenth century windmill. The entire riad is decorated in Berber style, with Moroccan carpets, wood-beamed ceilings, and ocean views. You will love eating breakfast on the roof-top terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Nights 4-6: We’ll spend these three nights in a rustic and beautiful riad in a Berber village in the High Atlas mountains. With rooftop dining under a Berber tent and views from snow-capped mountains to the twinkling lights of Marrakech, you may never want to leave. This Moroccan riad is lovely and tranquil and is by far the best available accommodation in the area. While they may occasionally lack some of the comforts of a luxury hotel, they more than compensate with their warm hospitality.
Nights 7 & 8: On the last two nights of our culinary tours we are in Marrakech, where we will stay in a lovely renovated riad in the heart of the ancient medina. With just a handful of tastefully decorated rooms centered around a courtyard, flower-filled terraces, and attentive and hospitable staff, our Moroccan riad will be your oasis in this exotic city.
