WHAT IS A RIAD?
A Riad is “a traditional structure consisting of a number of rooms on several floors centred around a patio, courtyard or
garden. It is based on a traditional Arab-Andalusian design, originating from Roman villas and Persian gardens. Such
characteristics can also be found in some 18th and 19th century Sicilian buildings.”
The inspiration for building a “RIAD” in San Vito Lo Capo came from the strong link that exists between the Maghreb
and the Province of Trapani, the most Arab part of Sicily. Couscous, our traditional dish, formalises this link.
Today, San Vito Lo Capo is regarded as the world capital of couscous, the dish of peace, and an intangible UNESCO
world heritage site.
We are proud to say that the RIAD is one of the most popular places to stay in San Vito Lo Capo.
Designed to offer maximum comfort to its guests, the RIAD Comfort Rooms 3* is a new hotel, which opened in July
2016 and is located about 50 metres from the white sandy beaches of San Vito Lo Capo.
The RIAD has just 6 spacious and exclusive rooms ranging in size from 25 to 35 square metres, all with large bathrooms and soundproof walls and windows. The quality standard of our rooms is certainly among the highest in San Vito Lo Capo.
The hotel is arranged over two levels (ground floor and first floor) around an elegant outdoor patio, from where you can access the rooms and the splendid terrace overlooking the sea and Monte Monaco.
All our rooms are “NON-SMOKING”; the Riad has large open spaces where you can smoke.
COMFORT rooms vary in size from approx. 25 to 30 square metres and include a bathroom with cubicle and shower tray.
They boast a double bed (or two single beds on request and subject to availability), a sofa/single bed, mini-bar, safe, LCD flat-screen TV, hairdryer, bathroom linen, bathroom toiletries, disposable slippers, air conditioning, beach towels, luggage rack, electric kettle, free Wi-Fi and curtains and blinds. They either have a window or a balcony overlooking the street and the patio.
The DELUXE room is located on the first floor and is about 35 square metres in size. The bathroom is 7 square metres, with a 140cm double sink and a 120 X 100cm shower tray, which also features an emotional light.
It boasts a double bed and two single beds in the one room, a wardrobe, luggage rack, minibar, safe, flat-screen LCD TV, hairdryer, air conditioning, bathroom linens, bathroom toiletries, disposable slippers, beach towels, electric kettle and free Wi-Fi. The room overlooks the patio and has a standard double-glazed window and frosted glass door, which can be darkened at night.
Patio & SOLARIUM
Our elegant patio is renowned for its Arabian Nights atmosphere, whether in the morning sun or in the soft evening light. Distinctive plants and flowers and the gentle sound of water gushing from a fountain provide an almost exclusive setting for your moments of relaxation. A beautiful sun terrace overlooking the sea and Monte Monaco is available for guests to use as a place to relax in the sun or under the shade of a gazebo.
San Vito Lo Capo
Arriving in San Vito Lo Capo means allowing yourself to be gently overwhelmed by your senses. The whiteness of the coastline, the iridescent blue of the clear waters, the red of the sunsets on the beach.
And then there are the smells: the jasmine and bougainvillea wafting from the houses, the unmistakable fragrance of the sea, and the freshness of the aromatic herbs growing wild in the nearby Monte Cofano and Zingaro nature reserves. And the sound of the wind and the crashing of the waves onto the shore…
