Experience the traditional Moroccan hospitality and find a home away from home at Riad Baoussala in Essaouira. Just south of the city, the guest home is located inside a luscious gum tree forest, adding a natural element to an already eco-friendly structure. Riad Baoussala is an eco-lodge, meaning it’s designed specifically with its surrounding environment in mind. The riad touts...

I had a wonderful time staying in Baoussala for a week. The rooms are lovely and homely. The food is great! The staff is sweet and friendly, and there is certainly a special and warm atmosphere at the Bauossala. Dont think it will be my last visit.

Baoussala is a very unique experience with a communal feel. The riad is a haven for relaxing and escaping the buzz. Not far from town and easily accessible via taxi (can be organised by the hotel) or rental car, this is a truly special place to relax the soul and loose yourselves on roofscape, the many outdoor and indoor spaces...

We were self-driving around Morocco and were recommended this Riad less than ten minutes self-drive from Essaouira. It proved the perfect place to unwind and from which to sally into the nearby town where parking was simple. Leah and Rashid in their different ways both managed to make us feel entirely relaxed as well as, evidently, the several other families...

We had originally booked the Red Room for three nights, but ended up staying four nights because we were so comfortable. The rooms of this cosy Riad are all individually styled, giving a unique flavour to one's stay, and the buildings and grounds are designed/landscaped for style and comfort. The staff is exceptionally friendly and kind - and Leah and...

Brilliantly run extended family style Riad, down a dubious looking dirt Road, a beautiful oasis of calm and serenity. Fresh food available virtually all day in this 6 bedroomed home. Each room has a open fire if morrocan nights are cold. A free Hamman, heated pool and total relaxation made my stay rejuvenating particularly after a superb massage given by...

Staying an Baoussala is a truly lovely experience. Lovely hostess Dominique and her team make sure you very at home and very comfortable.
