Riad Olema

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

Formerly two separate riads, Olema showcases traditional architecture – dating back to the 19th century in the Beldi riad – alongside a more contemporary feel in the Romi riad.

The rooms are decked out in muted tones – beige, grey, and blue – and, along with the peaceful, leafy courtyard, provide a pleasingly quiet contrast to the lively streets outside.

The on-site spa, means guests don’t have to venture far for a hammam or treatment, and the spacious rooftop is a lovely spot for a traditional Moroccan dinner (must be arranged in advance).

The location here is excellent, with the new city – home to the YSL museum and Majorelle Gardens – and the main historical sites within the medina both nearby.

Surrounding area

The riad is located just off the main street that runs through the Bab Doukkala neighbourhood. The bustling markets and concentration of riads in the area mean the streets are always alive with locals and tourists. Street food is available all day.

From the riad, walk to the Majorelle Gardens and Yves Saint Laurent Museum in the new city. Or turn left at the top of the street to arrive at Dar el Bacha and souks.
