The adventure begins in April, 2004. By dint of their experience in the marketing of the European independent hotel business, Timothée Porcq and Pierre-Yves Sorgniard created the company Hotels & Ryads, and launched www.riadsmorocco.com website.
The objective consists in offering to Moroccan guesthouses’ owners (riads, dar, kasbah ...) a distribution solution via Internet and, to travelers, an unique way to discover a Moroccan medina. The website counts at the moment near 100 properties, distributed in 9 cities of the Moroccan Kingdom : Marrakesh, Essaouira, Fez, Oualidia, Rabat Salé, Casablanca, Tangier, Safi and El Jadida.
In front of new properties’ increasing opening, the team visits hundreds of guesthouses or small capacity luxury hotels every year to complete its collection.
The selection criteria remain unchanged. Listed guesthouses have to answer to a quality charter and are visited several times a year for a quality control.
Hotels & Ryads wants to offer you a wide selection of what Morocco can offer in terms of guesthouses, with a single idea in mind : make you discover another way of travelling.
Staying in the heart of a Moroccan medina is a magic experience and can be only made by means of riads. Each of its secular houses strengthens its uniqueness, by its architecture and its decoration. Morocco’s riads are above all the reflection of their owners’ personality. Whether they are design, traditional or dedicated to the gastronomy, all of them will know how to offer you an unforgettable stay.
We thus suggest you organizing and assisting you in this wonderful trip!
