Almost the end of our trip, we couldn’t leave Morocco without visiting this delightful traditional riad belonging to our guide’s friend. Riad de luxe Dar El Kebira is a small luxury, elegant riad located within the Medina a short walk from the Kasbah des Oudaias.  The rooms are tiny but the use of exquisite Moroccan decoration, traditional furnitures, and lavish textiles balance the space in a refined  fashion between Berber influence and fine architecture, totally my ideal Moroccan palace.  However stunning in all angle like your own personal gallery space, it’s so Elle Decoration, you wouldn’t sleep in it, I would just stand there admiring its beauty all day long wishing they were mine.  I’ve never stayed in a riad before, I really hope to experience it one day.

  1. Truly gorgeous photography, looking forward to reading your next post.

  2. Fab photos! Looks like you had a pretty amazing time in Rabat. It’s such a lovely city, I would love to visit there. Loving all the Moroccan decors and soft furnishings.

  3. Wish I could be your travel companion and shadow you, I’d love to see how you capture beautiful things and perhaps learn from you.

  4. Ommmg, that place is a work of art! So gorgeous and stunning, I wouldn’t want to sleep either. I would just look at every inch of the place in admiration.

  5. I’ve stayed in a Riad, totally not as grand as this one but it was a stones throw from Jamaa el Fna Square – it was really in the thick of it. While it was nowhere as grand or luxe as this one – it was nice to stay in one and feel welcomed by the Moroccans that run the place. Love the details here – it would make an amazing photoshoot location!
