The Sirayane (in Arabic, the name of a river in paradise) occupies a 2 hectare plot in the middle of fields, a 15 minute drive from the edge of medina.
There are 28 rooms in total; 16 of them are like mini-bungalows with private gardens and there are four bigger suites, each with a private garden and pool. Eight rooms with private terrace occupy the first floor of the two-storey main building. Flat-screen TVs, DVD players, mini-bars, wi-fi and air conditioning come as standard, and the smallest rooms are 30 square metres, rising to 55 square metres for the two deluxe suites. Even the smaller rooms have a good sense of space, and share access to the pool. Go for a poolside room rather than one in the main building, if you can.
Despite their grey concrete construction and ‘zen’ design, the restaurant and lounge bar, like the spa complex, share a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the emphasis is very much on comfort as well as style. The 30m pool has a heated area, and is surrounded by ultra-cosy Italian loungers.
Eating and drinking
Moroccan and international cuisine is available throughout the day, along with a good selection of beers, wines and cocktails, which are served with appetizers. Evenings feature lounge music and occasional DJ nights (for example at New Year).
The spa centre takes up a floor space of 400 square metres and includes three treatment and massage rooms, a hairdresser, traditional hammam and a fitness centre. There is also a paddle tennis court and a jogging track. Cookery courses can be arranged, and there are free daily shuttle services to the medina.
With a maximum of 56 guests staying at the hotel at any given time and a staff of 42, there’s no shortage of personnel to take care of your every need.
