A couple of weeks ago, the time had finally come. Our first own Riad in Essaouira. We were super excited and stoked to finally walk through the doors of the KiteWorldWide Riad to the sounds of champagne corks popping . Daa da!
Then the reality set in and the next few days we manically measuring the rooms, decorating each individually with photos and furnishings and cleaning, polishing and shinning so we would be ready to welcome our first guests.
As soon as Anne and I walked in it just felt right, it has a lovely vibe and atmosphere and loads of light coming down from the skylight. The Riad has 6 rooms – exactly the right size to make it feel like a house rather than a hotel.
It also has a great roof terrace where you can relax on the sun loungers and catch the rays. Or you just sit and have a beer from our honesty bar in the chill out area. Weekly BBQ’s are also held on the terrace!
Also our first guests were more than happy. We quickly realized after Lenny (KWW team rider) had been with us for about 5 minutes, that food was important and breakfast even more so! So we have redesigned the breakfasts to make sure you have a full healthy breakfast, of fresh fruit, granola, Muesli and yoghurts, as well as fresh bread, honey and Jam. You then have the additional extra of Omelette, Scrambled or poached eggs as well a smoothie.
The vibe in the hotel has been sweet! Really friendly fun guests, who are all here for the same reason.. the love of the sea, kiting and surfing .. this creates great conversations.
Bring on the summer! We are looking forward for an awesome time with you guys!
