Karama, which translates to dignity in Arabic, is a beautifully proportioned double room at Riad Hikaya, featuring a spacious and intricately decorative bathroom. The room is adorned with a zowwaq painted and hand-sculpted ‘muqarnas’ bedhead, showcasing traditional geometric patterns. This is complemented by a canopy crafted from desert silk, muslin, and ‘shwisiyyaat’ – graceful hanging tassels – infusing the space with a romantic and theatrical ambiance.
The luxurious feel of the room is further enhanced by antique carpets and elegant velvet chairs. The bathroom is a masterpiece of design, boasting a hand-painted, mirrored feature wall that adds a touch of opulence. A sumptuous handcrafted bath made from maillechort or nickel silver and a separate domed shower provide a lavish environment for cleansing and revitalization.
Room size: 20 sq meters
