Riad Joya

26-27 Hay Mouassine
Derb El Hammam
Marrakesh, 40000, Morocco
TEL: 212-524-391-624


A team of Italian hoteliers is the reason this labor of love in the medina’s Mouassin quarter gives subtle nods to, rather than avalanches of, Moroccan-isms. At once austere and warm, seven suites with handcrafted beds and chaise lounges face an atrium with olive trees. Though diminutive in size, the riad is brilliantly full-service, with a staff—butlers, drivers, guides—on call for spa treatments, shopping excursions, and trips to Essaouira.

Room to Book:


All are named after remote locales and eras: Naos is pretty, its bed enclosed in sheer linen panels. Dar Arabe has a traditional Moroccan living room and a bed patterned by latticed shadows from its wooden mashrabiya window.

Insider Tip:


When another tagine is one tagine too many, eat in: Joya’s 28-year-old chef trained under one of the Tuscan owners’ mamas. Order risotto alle fave.
