At Riad UP we strive to transliterate in the modernity all of the charm of a vintage Arab-Andalusian Palace. Each part of the house – the patio, pool, terraces, fountain, and the ‘menzeh’ narrates the story of a period gone by and how it has been woven into the beautiful strings of contemporary times. Minute details and exquisite craftsmanship of the house lend a sense of grandeur and enhance the spirit of Riad UP. The decor is simple and deliberately defies any idea of pastiche.
Though completely renovated; Riad UP maintains the novel proportions and the most exemplary parts of the original house that had originally been built on site several centuries ago. A contemporary jewel instilled within the traditional treasures of the Medina is how one could express the essence of Riad UP.
