The riad Al Jazira is essentially three houses in one!
The focal point of each, as with all Riads, is the “courtyard.”
Upon entering Al Jazirah the first courtyard one meets is adorned with an enormous banana tree; the long green fronds of which boldly declare Abdellatif Aït Ben Abdallah’s signature theme: “ pure, natural elegance!”
The second courtyard is overlooked by a majestic gallery and the third, the “pièce de résistance,” encompasses an inviting blue pool in the centre of a beautiful open lounge, the “bhou,” where you can sit or recline upon a choice of comfortable sofas - like a true pasha!
Dating from the 17th century, this beautiful riad with its luminous white and uncluttered spaces and perfect harmony of line and proportion is truly seductive.
An ingenious sense of intimacy is created in this capacious building by its division into various alcoves and lounges where one can eat or simply relax with a book or drink! A glowing fireplace, much appreciated in winter, is available in one of the lounges for those who like the physical and visual comfort of a hearth. Crowning it all is a voluminous terrace offering undisturbed enjoyment of the Marrakech sunshine. Enjoy!
To complete your relaxation, a hammam and choice of massages are available.

Super séjour de 4 jours dans ce magnifique Riad. Le personnel a été très accueillant, nous a aidés dans nos différentes démarches (excursions, location de voiture).
Le petit déjeuner est royal.
Nous avons voyagé avec notre de fils de 22 mois et tous ont été aux petits soins pour lui.
We had a great stay at both riads, Riad Dar Sara and Riad Zitouna.
Easy walking distance from the souks and the famous square, the riad was like returning to home after a whole day out. The place is beautifully kept and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpfull.
I liked the authentic but modern style not overdecorated and kitsch,
defenitely recommandable we had a great stay.
