We have been busy ensuring the Riad is ready. Last weekend Riad Al-Bushra received the first visitors to the Riad. The preparations were fairly intense and time was a real enemy with five people all working hard on the very final day ensuring everything was clean and just right. All in all, apart from accidentally locking ourselves out of the Riad, everything went to plan.
October is a great time to visit Marrakech. The temperature ranges from a low of 15 to a high of 27 but the last few days has registered at 30 with a number of the street thermometers. This meant our visitors were able to use every outdoor space in the Riad. We have an inner courtyard with a large table supplemented with smaller tables which is ideal for the atmosphere that the pool, lighting, and music can create. We also have a seating area in the shade on the first floor which is ideal for lounging and book reading and a roof top that is divided into four areas. A garden area with seating, a tabled area (ideal for breakfast), sun lounge area and finally a tented, or covered, area the uses Berber fabrics to give a flavour of exotic Marrakech.
Our visitors decided to use the tabled area on the terrace where breakfast was served under the warm morning sunshine.
