Lawrence of Morocco

Suite Chouka

Suite Chouka is located on the first floor of the riad. It is a very long room with a small lounge and separate storage area. The forged metal window offers a great view of the garden in the center of the riad. All the furniture is made of cedar wood sculpted by craftsmen working in Meknes. The clay tiles are from the Meknes furnaces that have recently been moved out onto the road to Tangiers because they were supposedly making too much smoke in town. You can still see them work the clay now but the site is not as attractive as the traditional site was. The little coloured tiles were brought in from Fez as for some reason the ones made in Meknes chip away very easily.

The vast bathroom is decorated with Bejaad marble from the south of Morocco. The sink is sculpted in fossilised marble also from the south near Rissani, Erfoud and Merzouga.

Rates : 80 - 100 Euros depending on the period of the year.
Breakfast and taxes are included
