Pop-art glamour
meets industrial chic

Welcome to Riad EspritBleu, the new addition to Essaouira’s historic medina. Nestled in the heart of the ancient city, this hidden gem is for those seeking a new experience in a boutique hotel setting on Morocco’s Atlantic coast.

The Riad spans four floors around a light-filled central courtyard. High ceilings, columns, chandeliers, designer furniture, and unique artwork combine to make this a place of relaxation and calm, giving you the chance to unwind.

On entering the ground floor, also open to visitors, you are invited to browse the Miss Keren Concept Store. Full of new creations you can shop before savouring a gourmet meal of local or international flavour at the Café EspritBleu.

Riad EspritBleu has six luxury suites across the first and second floors. The third floor houses a magnificent suite with a private glazed pool and a shared terrace with plancha and maxi brazier. Finally, the fourth floor features a roof terrace offering breathtaking views across the medina’s rooftops and the nearby ocean.

Our team can organise bespoke outings or you can even book the entire Riad to create that unforgettable moment. At Riad EspritBleu our spirit is always open and inclusive – we’re an adult-only Riad from 12yrs+, pet-friendly and we welcome LGBTQ+ travellers.

Rooms & Suites

Behind the Riad’s grand, traditional wooden doors, you experience a high degree of contemporary comfort and quality service. Choose from six individually styled, private, bedroom suites set on the first and second floors, each one dedicated to an individual artist. A romantic master suite on the third floor boasts its own terrace and pool.
