Description and services

A leisurely breakfast on the rooftop terrace, enjoying the spectacular ocean view, is the best way to start your days at the Ryad Watier. Take your time to plan a walk in the medina, on the beach, to the port…or perhaps to steal a few minutes to read or treat yourself to an invigorating massage with Argan oil or a séance in the hammam.

The magic begins on the vegetated central patio and the surrounding communal areas including a lounge area with a fireplace, a library with more than 2000 volumes, the kitchen, and a dining room… These spaces are organized around the passageways of the interior patio that will lead you to a small garden, hammam and massage room.
Organized on four different levels that lead to two rooftop terraces with spectacular ocean views, the riad proposes 10 suites.

A warm welcome awaits you from the attentive and efficient staff of this traditional guesthouse. Traditional meals are prepared with fresh ingredients selected daily in the local markets and at the port.

Originally constructed to house a school and later abandoned and falling into ruins, this residence has been entirely renovated by local artisans respecting historical Moroccan architectural traditions. Succeeding in creating a haven of peace and tranquility, the Ryad Watier proposes a complete immersion in traditional Moroccan hospitality and charm.

The riad is named after Watier, an inspector of water and forests, who contributed enormously to the preservation of Essaouira and the bay by directing a support system of the dunes surrounding the city.

Idéalement situé en plein coeur de la vieille ville ce Ryad nous a séduit à tous points de vue. La maison bien sur avec ses chambres spacieuses, bien pensées, tranquilles, sa décoration réalisée avec un gout et une harmonie certains, les plantes, les différents espaces, la terrasse ( le petit déjeuner y est sublime !!!) Et puis, surtout peut-être, quel accueil, quels échanges, quels conseils, quels sourires de toutes et tous. Nous reviendrons pour la ville et pour cet endroit Merci
