Renovated from ruins, Riad Maison Bleue, the sister property to La Maison Bleue, is an elegant hotel that successfully combines traditional Moroccan influences with modern sensibilities. The 18 suites, comfortable restaurant, private spa and hammam, well-equipped gym and intimate bar exude an air of discreet luxury. The main courtyard, with its swimming pool and lush garden is surrounded by three guest rooms and a Moorish salon. Here you will be welcomed upon arrival with a bowl of orange-blossom scented milk and almond-stuffed dates. Six of the suites overlook this courtyard, where the palm trees, mandarin trees and pool combine to create an oasis of calm. The hotel offers a choice of two ‘a la carte’ menus comprising traditional Moroccan cuisine or international dishes. There is also a room service menu available.
Riad Maison Bleue occupies a 19th Century house that once belonged to Moulay Bel Arbi El Alaoui, an eminent judge and professor of theology. A famous Moroccan philosopher, Aziz Lahbabi, was also born and raised in this house. Today this property serves as the second guesthouse restored and run by the El Abbadi family, and consists of three interconnecting houses, which creates an intimate and romantic atmosphere. When exploring the routes connecting the houses guests can feel as though they are negotiating the laneways of the ancient Medina of Fez. Riad Maison Bleue has also achieved ‘Green Key’ status as a hotel, through its efforts to aid sustainability.
Located in the "Mesria" wing are four elegantly decorated suites that combine the best of Arabic and Oriental designs and styling. Timeless Moroccan style has been merged with more modern minimalism, resulting in elegant interiors and luxurious comfort. All 18 suites in the hotel are equipped with an en suite bathroom, reverse-cycle air conditioning and heating, telephone, television, Internet access, mini bar, iPod dock and safe.
