Riad Due a hip boutique hotel in the Marrakech Medina
Riad Due is a boutique hotel tucked away in the Marrakech Medina. It’s a typical Riad set around a courtyard with rooms facing inward but it has been elegantly restored and decorated by Italian owner Giovanna Cinel, who also owns Riad 72. The Riad has four very spacious, luxurious, bedrooms and can sleep up to twelve. It’s the perfect place for a private get together or celebration. For lovers of Moroccan architecture and interiors it’s a feast for the eyes so I will say no more and let the images do the talking:
The courtyard complete with a plunge pool which is very welcome in the summer months.
Traditional wooden doors open into the Samir suite.
A cosy nook with a wonderful old door as decoration. For cushions by the same designer have a look at our Souk Collection.
Views over the courtyard.
The Abdel suite with a traditional carved ceiling, Beni Ourain rug, kantha throw on the bed and an ornate painted chest. This room has a sunken bath with a skylight above it so you can gaze up at the stars.
The Zan suite complete with a copper bath, an original wooden ceiling and an Indian kantha throw. For similar kantha throws have a look at our vintage kantha throws.
The Kamal deluxe room features warm colours, a vibrant kantha throw and an incredible ornate ceiling.
The Samir suite complete with a fireplace for the winter months. The headboard in this room is an ornate Moroccan door. I like the idea of including a bookshelf and books in the room as it makes it feel more like home.
Stucco plaster work features on some of the ceilings in Riad Due.
A striking cabinet in the entrance to the Zan suite.
Traditional doors feature throughout Riad Due.
Striking tiles and a cleverly placed mirror which reflects the stonework.
Sun hats ready for use on the terrace.
The Roof Terrace
A sun spot with views over Marrakech to the Atlas mountains.
I would be happy to move in. What do you think?
