A Douiria or ‘little house’ is a separate space within a traditional Riad. The Douiria was traditionally used as a quiet space by the head of the household. In some cases the Douiria is in separate ownership, for example sometimes Riads are split as they are passed down through the generations.
The Casablanca Suite at Marrakech Riad Cinnamon is a classic Douiria accessed through a discrete staircase from the main patio. Our Marrakech Riads offer a fantastic base to explore the historic Medina a world heritage site. Reserve Accommodation today!

Written in Arabic مراكش foreigners interchangeably use ‘Marrakech‘ from the French and ‘Marrakesh‘ from the English. Riad sometimes written Riyad, Riyadh or Ryad means garden, and describes mediaeval Medina houses that open inward to a garden courtyard. Riad Papillon and Riad Cinnamon are great examples of how these ancient buildings can be given a new lease of life as luxury boutique hotels offering guests an essentially Moroccan experience.
The terms Riad (literal meaning garden) and Dar (literal meaning house) are somewhat interchangeable in Marrakech. Strictly speaking a Riad is a garden house built around a courtyard or patio. Some would say that a true riad requires four trees in a formal setting.
The broader term Dar includes even the finest Riads but also dwellings that are more modest in scale and outlook.
