This large 18th century riad at the medina's entrance has been renovated to transform it into a charming hotel with 33 suites and rooms. The Heure Bleue's defining feature is a huge fenced panoramic terrace with a heated pool and a unique view of the town formerly known as Mogador. An English lounge with an intimate atmosphere, and a gastronomic restaurant open out onto a leafy patio. Here, you can discover the new Essaouira cuisine thanks to Chef Ahmed Handour. It would be impossible to stay here without discovering the middle eastern ritual of the hammam at the Heure Bleue's Petit Spa.
Exemplary loyalty to local suppliers mean they can maintain their businesses whilst offering dishes full of taste and the traditions of Essaouira.
Giving guests the best of the region is the daily preoccupation. This establishment has built up a local network of suppliers, with co-operative cheese farms, fishermen, livestock and vegetable farmers. It advises them, as well as promoting them enthusiastically. Heure Bleue raises awareness among local children by focusing on meaningful, fun activities. Planting strawberries, learning to sort trash, and not wasting – all speak directly to them and help instill a green mentality.
