A paradise in the middle of a beautiful garden with different species of plants mainly succulents, aloes, palm trees and cacti. On a clear day you can see the snow-capped High Atlas mountains from the roof terrace. Four resident peacocks add a regal touch. All the rooms in the hotel are these traditional structures with thick earth walls that provide... More

beautiful desert gardens surround the property as well as are woven in between the rooms and common area so you feel so secluded (if that could be even more possible). This grand oasis is a stunner. I arrived at night and their guard was waiting for me at 4am! It was so easy and not a hassle to get right... More

We turned up at the gate without a reservation in our camper van. Thierry was completely charming, a little concerned to have a room prepared for us, and he showed us a couple of rooms for our consideration. They are all beautifully appointed and the gardens are simply magical. We had lunch and dinner here, with the resident cats and... More

We stayed here on our last night as my parter (Julia Wylie) is a London-based gardener and had heard and read many great things. We stayed on New Years Day 2014 and it was a great start to the year. (I think they'd had a rather memorable party the previous evening as a few sore heads were evident:) We started... More

We were amazed at the contrast with the approach road when we arrived at this remarkable riad. We were immediately struck by its fantastic design and lush appearance and it got even better as we were led to our room surrounded by incredible gardens. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore among the fruit trees and towering plants... More

Dar al Houssoun is a magical place. The gardens are utterly spectacular, and it really is an oasis of calm and tranquility. Ollivier and Thierry have created something really special here, with tame peacocks, dogs, cats, bullfrogs, and an utterly adorable baby boar called Zezette existing in perfect harmony. The food is excellent, and the spa treatments were particularly enjoyable,... More

Dar al Hossoun, Taroudant is a riad in the true sense of the word. It is not so much a hotel as an unforgettable experience. It's stunning gardens are designed by Arnaud Maurières and Eric Ossart, two French globetrotting botanists, plant hunters, architects and art and craft collectors. After about an hour's taxi drive from Agadir airport (450d) we were... More

This riad was very quiet and in a peaceful location. It is surrounded with gardens/plants which make it very beautiful. Due to the remote location you must eat at his riad. The food and service was excellent so it was a wonderful experience.
