My husband and I have just returned to New York from an unforgettable stay at Riad Kniza. This was our first trip to Morocco and we wanted to stay in a place that would enhance our understanding of Moroccan arts, culture and hospitality. Upon our arrival, as the door to the riad opened, we were greeted by the scent of flowers, the sight of the softly-lit courtyard with flowing fountain, and the soothing sounds of traditional Moroccan music coursing through the air, played live by an accomplished musician. The decor at Riad Kniza discreetly showcased the outstanding talents of local craftsmen employed during a recent, meticulous restoration of this home, which has been in the owner's family for 2 centuries. We were welcomed with Moroccan tea and later guided, along inlaid corridors, to our room, which was immaculate and tastefully appointed. That night, we enjoyed a delicious traditional Moroccan meal in an intimate dining room. In the morning, we were served a generous and varied breakfast on the beautifully planted roof terrace. Later in our stay, we were moved to the Royal Suite Bahia, with a scale and decor that took our breath away! Above all, throughout our stay, the owner and staff of Riad Kniza were always accessible and eager to provide or suggest whatever assistance would be helpful. Their knowledge, grace and cordiality cannot be over-emphasized. I would also note that this riad is easy to find within the walls of the medina. I would recommend Riad Kniza with confidence to anyone looking for a charming and genuinely gracious "home away from home."
