The Riad Dar Ilham is a house that combines the charm of a traditional Riad and that of a
villa completely surrounded by nature.
Sheltered from prying eyes, we enter the property through an alley covered by a pergola, under a cascade of bougainvilleas leading to the residence's entrance. Like in a real paradise, you'll be charmed by the richness of the garden surrounding the Riad.
At first sight, the architecture is the identical to that of a Kasbah, but as you enter in this haven of peace, you will embark on a trip to the very heart of the medina, with the advantages of fresh air and open space.
A Riad at the heart of the Palm Grove:
Opening up to a beautiful patio full of orange trees, the Riad is faithful to its traditional structure, where all the rooms give onto the fountain, the house's central point. Thus, you will enjoy the freshness it provides and will allow yourself to be swept away by the serene atmosphere in which romanticism and the warm and modern Moroccan decoration gracefully melt.
Asma and his devoted team, attentive and discreet, will welcome you and make your stay unforgettable.
Thus, take your time to appreciate life's simple things and give yourself up to the flavours
of Moroccan cuisine that will be glad to make you discover. Also, you will have a
chance to enjoy your breakfast in the garden and to take the time to start your day with healthy
and delicious food.
Our beautician / masseuse, will help you discover Moroccan well-being. If you wish, you may choose between a 4-day program in order to have a full experience and to obtain maximum well-being. You will have a traditional Hammam at your disposal that will leave your skin glossy and incomparably soft. And do not forget the Jacuzzi, for up to 6 people, where you will enjoy wonderful moments of relaxation in an intimate corner of the garden.
Modernity and comfort:
A beautiful all-white Moroccan lounge, partly covered in fabrics with warm colours that remind of Mexican cloths and adorned with abundant white cushions, awaits you in the evening to invite you to enjoy a pleasant rest. In wintertime, you will certainly enjoy the beautiful fireplace, watch one of our numerous available films (or satellite TV) on our Home Cinema, or play board games. Also, a big library will delight reading lovers during the entire stay.
Enjoy the garden:
Outside, in the middle of the garden full of flowers, a big oval swimming pool (heated in wintertime) invites you to cool down and to enjoy the pleasures of idleness. Also, you will get to enjoy the Kasbah swimming pool (72 x 26 ft.) ideal for swimming lovers (unless the Kasbah has been rented exclusively).
If you wish, Asma can organize special parties and typical evenings under a Berber tent by the Riad’s swimming pool, with Gnawa musicians from Marrakech, belly dancers, Arabic-Andalusian musicians, and snakes charmers.
