Magical Riad courtyard Home in the Heart of Marrakech
For your Moroccan experience, there’s no better resting place than a Marrakech Riad located in a quiet residential area. As the name suggests, its ambiance is warm, homely and inviting having once belonged to a local Moroccan cinnamon merchant. Situated in the heart of the old town Medina, the beautifully restored Riad is a blend of traditional décor and atmosphere with excellent hospitality, service fulfilled to perfection and luxurious tranquility within the Red City walls.
Inside, the senses come in contact with the glorious and ceiling-less majesty inside, and the peaceful courtyard is the centerpiece of this glory as natural light shines down into the building onto a plunge pool, intended to cool the surroundings on a warm day. Laze around down in the bhou – a built-in sofa beneath the shade of the luxuriant arcade, sip tea by the fire on the ground-floor salon, or feast on traditional tagines and couscous in the dining room. Moroccan cuisine can be enjoyed in the dining area or on the terrace, and breakfast is served every morning at your Riad.
The facilities of this boutique style Riad were conceived with guests comfort in mind, casting its magic spell over the beautiful patio, comfortable lounge, breathtaking terrace, and refreshing dipping pools. The Riad has an exclusive and personal feel and the 5 ensuite bedrooms are uniquely furnished, each offering the height of comfort and personality. Guests are guaranteed with a great night’s sleep in unbelievably comfortable beds fitted with fine cotton sheets and no detail spared elsewhere.
While all suites contain flat screen TVs with international satellite channels, iPod docking stations, minibars, personal safes, hair dryers, luxury towels and bathrobes and complimentary toiletries, some of them enjoy the natural light streaming through the intricately carved “mocha rabi” wooden shutters that open onto the Menzeh, a traditional balcony which looks over the Riad’s courtyard. Upstairs, guests are invited to enjoy the breathtaking view from the Roof Terrace opening out over the rooftops of Marrakech against the backdrop of the magnificent Atlas Mountains.
As guests staying at your Marrakech Riad are looking for an authentic experience, the most compelling reason to stay at the Riad is the service provided by the dedicated concierge service staff that provides 24/7 advice and support with all aspects of your Marrakech break., whether you wish to have a traditional meal at a local restaurant or a revitalizing steam and scrub at a hammam.
Ideally located inside the City walls in the heart of a historic district near to the Marrakech Museum and the Ben Youssef Mosque, guests will have the opportunity to live the vibrant city full of thrilling experiences, ancient history and unrivalled opportunities.
