The Patio

The patio is the heart of a Riad but also its soul
The patio is certainly the most characteristic element of a traditional Moroccan riad, it is an open courtyard around which are distributed the rooms of the house.
At the riad Malaika, the patio is not only the center of the building but also its heart, much more than a skylight it is a real space of life in and around which everything is organized.
In the center of it, the central fountain surrounded by the four stone pillars as tradition requires, runs continuously * and creates a very soothing atmosphere that attracts at certain times of the day thirsty and curious birds.
It is a place where you like to go and return to go according to your mood in one of the three salons.
* in closed circuit for the respect of the environment and to avoid the waste of the water.

The Terrace

Between heaven and earth, in the shade or in the sun, but especially out of sight
There is a place at Riad Malaika, a space where everyone can enjoy a unique moment: the terrace on the roof of the riad.
On this one it is possible to isolate yourself from the hustle and bustle of the medina to read, to surf on the internet thanks to the wifi, to dream or to sunbathe lying on a deck chair, and for those who prefer, a part of the terrace is sheltered from sun and wind …
In the morning, having breakfast under the blue sky caressed by the rising sun is a real pleasure, while in the moonlight, surrounded by lights, you can enjoy the murmur of the waves mixed with that of the fountain in tadelakt.

The Lounges

The tradition of Moroccan hospitality
Morocco is a country where hospitality and the art of hospitality are at the heart of all attentions, since the oriental lounges, summer or winter, are the real pieces to receive from a house.
We have tea, we discuss, we eat, we even sleep sometimes … in a word are the rooms where we receive his guests and where we share the intimacy of the house.
In the purest Moroccan tradition, the riad Malaika has three rooms, located on the ground floor and open on the patio they go around. They are available to guests of the house throughout the day.
Three salons, three different atmospheres to be able to offer an oriental dynamic while remaining in a very refined environment.
From breakfast to after dark to read, have a drink with friends or family, listen to music and let yourself be warmed by the fireplace, the lounges are an invitation to idleness.
