All our apartments are suitable for couples, but those looking for some romance will particularly enjoy our cosy Ghibli apartment with its romantic open fire and roof terrace apartment, the perfect place to enjoy candlelit dinners under the stars.


An extra child’s bed can be made up in Sirocco and Alizee can take additional twin beds on its mezzanine level. (Bear in mind that this is reached via a steep staircase). Two baby cots are also available for any apartment at a small additional charge.


With four self-contained apartments & shared terraces, Dar Lazuli offers the perfect mix of communal areas & privacy for groups travelling together. And with everything in walking distance, you don’t need to worry about sharing transport!

Dar Lazuli shared terraces

Our Essaouira riad has three shared terraces, perfect for soaking up the Moroccan sun or gazing at the stars. Relax on the first terrace with a comfy cushioned lounging area, or climb higher to the upper level terraces with pink walls and beautiful plants to enjoy secluded al fresco eating. Simply relax, read and listen to the sounds of daily Moroccan life around you…
