We recently spent 5 nights at the Riad Baoussala and had the most wonderful and relaxing time there. All of the staff are very lovely and welcoming and every meal we were served was absolutely delicious. The Riad and grounds are great and very well kept, especially the pool which we spent most of our time in and around! We... More

We spent three wonderful nights at Riad Baoussala at the kind hospitality of Dominique, Leah and Rashid. Our room (the Blue Room) was wonderfully quirky and was a welcome relief after three days on the road. The grounds are beautiful and the swimming pool area such a relaxing environment. We had anticipated spending more time in Essaouira itself, but having... More

We fell in love with villa Baoussala and it's incredible people. The first time that we went there for a holiday was magical. The atmosphere is charming, friendly, and very welcoming. Dominique & Leah have made this tranquil place into a Moroccan little gem. We decided to do our wedding here and specially Leah has been very helpful for organising.... More

We had 6 days of bliss at Baoussala, we stayed in the Marabout suite which is a beautiful self contained cottage - perfect for my wife and I, and our two girls (ages 8 & 6). Leah was such a lovely host unfortunately we didn't meet Dominique as she was away in France, but all the staff were lovely and... More

We arrived in Essaouira by bus and were greeted by a taxi arranged for us by the Riad. Upon arrival at the Riad we immediately felt relaxed. The walled complex offers something for everyone from comfy sofas in the courtyard & deck chairs on the terrace to hammocks and sun loungers by the pool. The room (we stayed in the... More

This is truly a place to chill out. Very original and enticing design of both the buildings and garden areas - loved the many different seating areas tucked away all around the grounds. Food and service from all the staff also great. The only advice I would give is be prepared for 3kms of bumpy road in either direction -... More

Riad Baoussala is a truly special, almost magical place. I actually hesitated before writing this review, as I loved it so much I kind of want to keep it a secret, so that there is room when we book again next year (Inshallah, as they say in Morrocco). At the heart of it all, it's Dominique's vision and personality that... More

You drive up a very bumpy track and through the gates to a real oasis of calm, beauty and tranquility. We really enjoyed our stay, undoubtedly the most relaxing in our Morocco road trip. The rooms are very charming and stylish, the staff are very kind and easy going and clearly enjoy their work and are a brilliant and caring... More

After a 2 and a half taxi transfer, well organised, we arrived and immediately felt relaxed. The marabout suite was perfect next to the pool. The place is among shurb and worth walking around, donkeys, cows, goats and truly peaceful. We had a car for 3 of the 7 days, nothing that much to see, the charm is Essaouria and... More

We stayed here for four nights in May and it's a lovely, relaxing place to stay. Dominique, Leah and Rashid were brilliant, very welcoming and nothing was too much for them. Our room was very cool, a perfect escape if the heat got to much and the food was delicious. We have nothing but good memories of our stay.
