Morocco is a beautiful place that is being added to more and more travel bucket lists all the time.
The allure comes from it's hot weather, exotic food, and bright, colourful architecture. Just take a look for yourself:
I truly believe that one of the reasons Morocco has recently become such a hot spot is the emergence of just beautiful photos on Instagram. Travel bloggers have really put the country in the best light possible with their incredible photos popping up on our 'popular' page.
One photo in particular seems to always catch everyone's attention. That azure blue, rectangular pool, nestled in a courtyard adorned with geometric designs, pretty tiles, and lush greenery. Yes, THAT photo:
We've all at one point found ourselves staring at a photo of someone here, but often times couldn't figure out where exactly this magical spot was. Look no further, because we've done the work for you. Welcome to Le Riad Yasmine.
*Quick History Lesson* - A riad is the Moroccan traditional house, normally with two or more storeys around an Andalusian-style courtyard that contained a fountain. Riads were the stately city homes of the wealthiest citizens such as merchants and courtiers. And now tourists like yourself looking for an unreal Insta pic.
This riad is located in the city of Marrakesh and is truly a dessert oasis. The pool isn't the only beautiful things about the guesthouse. From the chic furniture, to the rooftop terrace, perfect for sunsets, this place is definitely worth the visit.
Rooms run between 90-140 Euros ( $135-207 CAD), which includes breakfast daily and breakfast looks pretty damn good too:
Furthermore, lunches and dinners are on a ”reservation only” and available for resident guests only basis due to the fact the cuisine is carefully prepared daily from the freshest local ingredients and they need to know exactly how many people are coming. How perfect does that sound?
But one more time: THAT POOOOOOL!!!
