If you’re looking for some peace, calm and refined luxury in the Dar El Bacha area of the Medina region, Riad Adore may be the answer to your prayers. I found this traditional style Riad to be comforting, bright and a true haven retrofitted with all amenities and reasonable luxuries one can ask for. The attention to detail is commendable, the space is suffused with light and a calming grey accent on windows and doors.

Check out their Honesty bar, a place you can hang out, read books or hang out in the evenings. The Riad also offers a salon, a spa and a fantastic rooftop complete with a fireplace and sun-loungers.

I was welcomed, as always, with mint tea and date cookies. The lounge area has elegant courtyards with trees for centerpieces and lots of beautiful abstract art hung about. I stayed at the Sofia Room, which had a killer view of the splash pool and an entire upper floor dedicated to a spa-style bathroom.

Since my room was adjacent to the plunge pool at the ground floor, I had easy access to it at all times, but my en-suite located above my bedroom had a giant spa bath with heated towel racks and the works. These folks at Pure Riads know their clientele well!
