The decor in the intimate Essaouira suite is inspired by the romantic Moroccan port of the same name. Upstairs is the sleeping area which has a great view accross to the decorated wood balcony of the Meknes suite and down into the Riad courtyard. The comfortable double bed is 160 cm wide and 2metres long. Sheets are egyptian cotton and the duvet is filled with natural silk to keep guests cool in summer and warm in winter.
A pretty staircase leads along a balcony and down to the atmospheric sitting area. This part of the suite also has a nautical feel with intricate hand crafted copper and wrought iron decorations. The lamps in the luxurious Essaouira suite are beautifully decorated in the Fes style throwing shadows wich further enhance the atmosphere at night time.
The relaxed seating area houses a sofa which can be made up as a single bed. On the floor is a hand made berber rug and there is a sony Bravia flat screen tv with satellite channels, a minifridge and a convenient wardrobe.
The bathroom is a real feature of this suite with it’s luxurious double sink and shower with cosy double ended mini bath- a real extravagance in water conscious marrakech.
Great room in a beautiful riad. We were a group of 3 traveling, so the room accommodated us perfectly with 3 beds. The staff at the riad was wonderful - walking us to any restaurant/sight in the Medina and giving us a cell phone to use in case we got lost and needed picked-up. The riad was beautifully restored, with an amazing roof deck. Highly recommended!
