Riad Zahra In Essaouira – Idyllic Place To Relax

Located 2min walk from a beautiful, clean beach Riad Zahra makes a perfect getaway for those who are fed up with big city life and all they want to do is to relax. The hotel is fairly new, yet cosy and with a good ambience.

The beach in Essaouira is undoubtedly one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches I’ve seen in Morocco- no wonder why so many European tourists decide to come just to this city. There are lifeguards on the beach and many nice cafes and restaurants around.


the beach is just 2 min walk from the hotel

The place is held in a modern, yet a bit oriental style. It resembles a traditional, Moroccan riad. There are 23 rooms with different standard and views. For the best views book the room on the top floor!

Riad Zahra is owned and run by a Spanish family from Barcelona. If you want to practice English, Spanish or French- go ahead that’s a perfect place for a language immersion!






Riad Zahra has an awesome swimming pool with comfortable sunbeds. It is located in the backyard- private and invisible for strangers. There are lovely tortoises- permanent inhabitants of the swimming pool:)

A thing that is worth mentioning is the fact that Riad Zahra specializes in grill- you may order your dinner for 13 euros. The restaurant is located at the top floor of the hotel with a breathtaking view on the beach! Breakfast is included with every reservation.
