Located in the maze of Salé’s busy medina, Riad Dar Nawfal is quite literally a hidden gem. It’s a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the hustle and bustle and I couldn’t recommend it more. The architectural layout is stunning with an open-plan design that leads right up to the roof terrace, filling the space with natural light. I loved the simple décor, brightened up with authentic tiles and traditional Moroccan furniture and textiles.

The rooms are really lovely. They’re super light and spacious, each with a really comfortable double bed, seating area, in-built wardrobe space and en-suite bathroom – what more could you ask for?

A breakfast of local cuisine (which is de-licious) is served each morning either in the dining area or on the roof terrace dependent on the weather. The roof terrace is filled with flowers and seating areas to relax and take in the views of the city. Visiting in December meant there weren’t many others staying during our trip, so my friend and I used the space for morning yoga in the sunshine.
