Riad Dar Justo in Marrakech

Riad Dar Justo is a 15th century traditional guest house, reconstructed and tastefully decorated with a balance of tradition, originality and modernity by its owner, the artist Justo Almendros. It's located in a tranquil corner of the Mouassine quarter, a short walk to the famous Djemmaa el-Fna square, oral patrimony of humanity (UNESCO).

The riad is spread over 1,000 square meters (11,000 square feet) distributed on three floors. Five patios that preserve the essence of Moroccan architecture dominate the space. On the first floor, in addition to several lounges, there is a small reflecting pool and a restaurant and bar; a total of 23 rooms combined with small sitting rooms that invite intimate chats and relaxation. On the top floor there is a large garden terrace covering over 700 square meters (753 square feet), a "chill-out" atmosphere with a view from its comfortable armchairs and sofas of the Koutoubia minaret, the High Atlas, the multi-colored roofs of the city and, by night, the astonishing stars of the African night. And, last but not least, our Spa with its hammam, as carefully decorated as the rest of the establishment.

The Rooms:

Standard Rooms: sleep up to two guests in twin or double beds with en suite bathroom, Heating and air-conditioning, WiFi, Satellite TV and Toiletries.
The Junior Suites: sleep up to three guests with en suite bathroom, heating and air-conditioning, wi-fi, satellite TV and toiletries.
The Confort Suite: a suite with a loft for up to four people with great privacy. The beds can be double or single. With en suite bathroom with a shower and bathtub, Heating and air-conditioning, WiFi, Satellite TV and toiletries.
The Excellence Suite: a large, light-filled suite with a bedroom, bathroom and independent sitting room. It has a double bed (which can be replaced with two single beds) and two sofas that fold out to provide an additional double bed or two single beds. Private bathroom, Heating and air-conditioning, WiFi, Satellite TV, and toiletries.

The distribution of the riad in several interconnected guest houses makes it possible to reserve, according to the number of guests, different combinations of zones that are completely separate from the other activities. There also exists the possibility of renting the entire riad, including its common spaces, for private parties and celebrations.

All of this comfort is built on a pioneering sustainability project based on solar energy, through which we produce "clean" heat for diverse purposes such as heating, hot water and the hammam.

To make better use of water, a scarce and precious resource in the desert climate of Morocco, all of the water is purified and reused for watering plants and supplying toilet tanks, after which its treated it again before entering the public sewer network.

With these water treatment and energy systems, along with the philosophy of managing human resources, Dar Justo is a Sustainable and Socially Responsible project. Over 40 jobs for young people from diverse parts of Morocco were created, to whom they offer continuing education with the goal of, not only providing jobs, but also of helping them to develop themselves professionally.
