This expansive room is entered from the courtyard via three open arches softened byflowing voile drapes.

This room also accommodates a large dining table with seating capacity for twelve people.
The large roof terrace has a heated plunge pool ideal for cooling off after a period of sunbathing on the comfortable sun-loungers. Alternatively you can relax in the shade of the tent with its softly billowing curtains and comfortable cushion seating. A separate section is available for dining and a barbecue area is also available for those that wish to have food prepared and eaten al fresco. The terrace is subtly lit at night and guests enjoy relaxing here with a drink before or after dinner.
For those that are unfamiliar with the layout of a traditional riad, the central courtyard is open to the sky allowing the luxury of inside/outside living during the summer months. In winter the area is protected by a transparent cover. Small armchairs tables and Berber rugs are placed around the courtyard creating a fluid expanse of living space with the adjoining cloistered blue room and sitting room. At night a combination of up lights and traditional Moroccan lanterns cast mystical shadows around the columns, creating the illusion of 1001 Arabian nights….
