Riad Noir d’Ivoire is a boutique hotel hidden inside the Medina.  This spectacular oasis, created by a worldly Franco-English couple, offers all the comforts of a home away from home with discreet and elegant style.  The owner has one aim in mind: to provide guests with impeccable, individual service and ultimate comfort.  The hospitality is unparalleled and, more important, authentic.

Every attention to detail has been thought of throughout the Riad.  Each of the nine guest rooms has an individual motif and is decorated with antiques and unique ‘objets d’art.’  The three Master Suites have their own private terraces with jacuzzis.  The two spacious courtyards—one of which contains a large 10-meter pool with two- story high cascading waterfalls—are populated with pierced-steel lamps, lanterns, books and magazines.  The Riad provides both intimate spaces for relaxing as well as an array of public areas for socializing and dining.

All aspects of the guest’s experience are completely tended to.  For example, mobile phones are supplied to guests to ease their exploration of the Médina.  For both casual meals and fine dining, our talented chefs prepare a selection of traditional Moroccan dishes as well as International dishes which you can enjoy in one the courtyards or on private roof terrace; the open wine cellar is of particular interest both for its beauty and selection.   Finally, the beauty therapist can indulge guests’ desire to relax by providing the traditionnal Hammam, a selection of massage, facial, manicure & pedicure, and hot stone treatments.

Smoking areas

Smoking is permitted in all areas of the Riad except for in the Library and the Guest Bedrooms.  If a guest does smoke in a bedroom (please don’t!), then a minimum cleaning fee of 2,500 MAD will apply.
