Riad Joya is a beautiful blend of gold, cream and pink hues that evoke a romantic feel to the property. The style is minimal with hints towards the souks of Morocco coupled with nature and the surrounding landscapes.
The rooftop terrace is the best place for breakfast whilst you take in the scents of jasmine and orange and plan your day. The cosy library is a real hideaway, ideal with a book and glass in hand. Experience the ceremony of the traditional Moroccan bath and scrub in Joya's exclusive hammam.
Best time to be there
Morocco is warm and sunny year round. The best time to visit is mid-February to June and September to December. Coastal Morocco is cooled by sea breezes. The peaks of the Atlas Mountains are snow-capped for most of the year.
