Riad Alya
Stepping inside the Riad Alya from the chaos of the medina feels like a retreat into a secret hideaway, one with decadent interiors that teem with arabesques and geometric patterns. The jewel box-like central courtyard is smothered in ornate detail and the charms of Moroccan style: there’s the ubiquitous zellige tiling, intricate plaster and wood carvings, a babbling fountain, and filigree wrought ironwork like black lace in the windows. Fragrant orange trees sprout from the tilework and mingle with the scent of mint tea that seems to appear continuously throughout the day. It’s a tranquil place to while away the time before hitting the labyrinthine alleys outside, as is the rooftop terrace, which hoisted above the feverish maze, offers sprawling, panoramic views skirted in distant mountains. Tradition abounds beyond the decor; guests can sample refined Fassi cuisine, including a delectable pigeon pastilla and aromatic tagines, or try their own hand at recreating local flavors by way of a cooking class. There’s also a traditional hammam, an ancient bathing ritual that’s bound to relax and revive.
