Travels | Riad Tizwa | Marrakech, Morocco

This is the riad of one of my friends called Richard. When we met Richard had no idea I had an online store selling Moroccan products... I told him later on. The first time I visited the riad it my friend Richard (the owner) cancelled on me last minute because of family reasons.I was looking forward to have a friends' weekend just the two of us. It so much fun when you travel with someone else...  I stayed at the riad for 3 days. 

It was a perfect stay. The staff was adorable and they spoke English perfectly. Very discreet. I also was very happy about having some "Me" Time and to catchup on some sleep. I could not have picked a better place. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast on the rooftop was peaceful. I highly recommend it. These are my pictures below. Depending on the season and the room you can stay for AED1,300 for 4 nights ($320). Quite affordable as a couple. So, just book your plane from Dubai. Read more about Marrakech:

Riad Tizwa

I stayed at the Riad for 3 days. My friend cancelled on me last minute so as a woman I was a bit nervous about travelling Morocco on my own. I also was very happy about having some "Me" Time and to catchup on some sleep. I could not have picked a better place. 

I selected the room No1 which is the largest one on the 1st floor. Very peaceful and minimalist. A beautiful vintage beni ourain carpet on the floor. A hidden walk-in wardrobe. A nice bathrobe with a tassel in the bathroom. Every morning, the moment I opened my windows onto the central area of the riad, the staff knew I was ready for breakfast. How great is this? I had my breakfast on the beautiful terrasse. The staff was discreet. I spent my afternoons visiting the city and it was very easy to find my way back to the Riad though the Medina. 

The place is located by a quiet street. It makes it very easy to grab a taxi to airport, train station or anywhere in the city. On that same street there is a nice little restaurant to grab bite when coming back after a long day. Not too far you can also find a cash point and convenient store for shampoos or other items. The staff was also very kind and went to get me some Arabic sweets to go with my evening tea every time I requested it.

The place has definitely charm and a home feeling. It is definitely what to be looking for when in Marrakech. I look for charm and not perfection. Tell them I sent you. ;-) Audrey.
