The character of Mina embodies this quest with a sincerity and vulnerability that particularly touched us.

Meet Saïda, our chef

Saïda is also defined by her smile. Her expert hands, her sense of taste embellish Dar Kawa with savory scents. She gives life to the riad’s table where everything-or almost-is homemade.

Meet Abdelhadi, our riad manager

Abdelhadi is the soul of the house. From ‘his’ house as he calls it. Abdelhadi witnesses Dar Kawa’s adventure from the beginning. He has seen it evolve and accompanies all its changes. But he is especially present everyday.
