Property Description

What is Riad Dia? Quite simply, it is the house that you may have once designed in your head and though 'no, its just not possible I could ever live in a place like this'. An incredible traditional riad with the atmosphere of a backpackers hostel, Riad Dia is located less than a minute from the main square Place D'Jeema el Fna. With a lovely swimming pool in the communal courtyard - colorful, sunny and social, lots of dorm rooms (and these are no ordinary dorms - they are seriously luxury), and several terraces to relax on, sunbathe, put the world to rights.

The riad is traditional, but the colors are bright and wild! It is an inside out, upside down, topsy curvy house. The gardens are indoors - you can even do some fruit picking). Sit among our courtyard gardens with fellow travelers and new friends; make crazy plans for your travels - they will definitely become realities. Or, don't make crazy travel plans! Just enjoy our unique atmosphere over tea and shisha.

Groups are more than welcome. We have significant experience with all kinds of groups, and it really is the perfect space in Marrakesh for a trekking group, photography class group or student group.

Riad Dia is a little contrast of a riad. It is perfect for independent travellers looking for adventure and a place to relax and at the same time it is a one-stop shop for your entire Moroccan trip. We can help you with every aspect of your trip and you don't even need to leave the swimming pool!

We welcome guests from everywhere outside of Marrakech, but do not accept re-locators.

    Riad Dia has been the best hostel experience I've had world over. It gave us a fantastic insight into the culture and traditions of Morocco, from the decor to the food, the open roof for star gazing or chilling with your friends at night. More though, the staff always went above and beyond. Said and Nasser were ever only one call away from answering our queries, made us breakfast at any hour, and sorted all our adventures. They became our brothers by the end and I hope you experience this too!

    We needed up staying at the Layla rouge instead which was great fun. The staff were the friendliest we’d found in Morocco and were so helpful. Also there were lots of other travellers so plenty of people to meet from all over the world. Right next to the souks and main square. Definitely a great place to stay if you like to have fun, meet lots of people and get involved. Best hostel in Marrakech!

    I actually stayed in the *Riad Layla Rouge* because the Riad Dia was closed because of Covid. But the stay was awesome! Especially Rachid made it very special with his generous hospitality and the dinners together in the hostel!

    I sent a What’s App message to refund my deposit as the trip was canceled altogether. No response and I was billed despite a 14 day advance cancellation. Never went to Morocco/ no response from the Riad either.
