Essaouira is well known for being an artistic hub; its atmospheric medina, ramparts and windswept beaches have long provided inspiration to those who visit and have influenced the creative works of many artists and musicians. To complement this bohemian experience you need a hotel with a difference, which is why we love the arty Ryad Watier.

Located in the old medina, up a quiet side street, Ryad Watier is in easy strolling distance of the main square, port and beach. Distinctly different to the opulent riads of Marrakech, the property offers 7 rooms and 3 suites which are all incredibly spacious, bright and airy. Each room is effortlessly stylish; fresh bright colours punctuate the walls and select pieces of artwork give each room a distinct character. Rooms are en-suite and the showers are all finished with traditional tadelakt in earthy tones. The suites are perfect for families; each has a master bedroom, a sitting room with a fire place, a second room for the children (located on a mezzanine level) and a bathroom.

For relaxing, there’s a roof terrace, large communal sitting room with open fire, a dining room (meals are good value and alcohol is served) and a small library. Unusually for riads in Essaouira, there’s also a small garden area, complete with a couple of very friendly tortoises. If you feel like a treat you can book a massage or hammam. Babysitting can be arranged on request and Wifi is available.

  • We had an amazing time thank you very much! The riads and hotels were outstanding and everything went as clockwork. We had really bad rainfall on the day we transferred to Marrakech but our driver didnt give up and we eventually found a passable road ( which I think was the last possible one to get us there!)

    Thank you so much!

  • We would very much like to give our feedback regarding our trip to Morocco because it was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish there was nothing to fault, Mustafa our guide in the mountains was great - discrete when necessary but delightfully eloquent and informed about a wide variety of subjects. The food in the mountains was superb ( though the toilet facilities in the gites d'etape left a lot to be desired!!) The guest house Dar Adrar was beautiful with amazing views. The riad in Marrakesh was lovely and such a welcome respite after the hectic souks.....and as for the was fab!!!! Mohammed our instructor was patient and so super cool....a real gem and great with our children.
    All in all it was wonderful and we were all sad to leave. We will definitely consider using Tourdust again and wont hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
