Fodor's Review

Walking through the heavy door that opens into Riad Enija is like stepping into a fairy tale: sculptures, Italian lamps, carved doors, and unique handmade furnishings make this home more of a living gallery than a guesthouse, and visitors return again and again. Owners Ursula and Bjorn have blended their personal collection of contemporary fine art and design with the traditional architecture of this former home of a Fez silk trader. Two magnificent riads, each with a central courtyard, are linked by a stunning corridor hung with handmade tasseled lamps, paintings, armoires, and sofas strewn with a rainbow of bright cushions. The color scheme is bold—purples, pinks, peacock blue, with vases of fresh flowers. One courtyard is a jungle of plants and trees, with an alcove for dining, while the other features an Indian-themed pool bordered with centuries-old pillars imported from Rajasthan. Large rooms have fans and high ceilings; the luxuriously spacious bathrooms are works of art in themselves, with sunken baths, tiles, brass candlesticks, and tadelakt finishes. A spa offering massage and herbal treatments completes the idyll.

Great Location & Perfect Setting

After walking the streets and fighting your way through the souks, it was a magical experience to enter the Riad. The food was great and prices were fair for what you received
