Riad Ziri Marrakech
A city full of contrasts, the vibrant Marrakech is intoxicating.
Well known for its souks, spices, snake charmers and hidden palaces, though these days it’s prized as much for its trendy art galleries, hip hotels and elegant hammams. Offering a taste of Africa within easy reach of Europe, it certainly lives up to the expectations of those who seek adventure.
Riad Ziri Vila is contemporary in style but maintains many classical Moroccan features such as a central courtyard and roof terrace. The enchanting garden filled with shady trees, exotic plants and large lounging area has its own private swimming pool.
Built with a traditional roof terrace with its extensive covered sun deck, bar area and enclosed chill out area, Riad Ziri also features a dining area, living space and kitchen with breakfast bar.
With four spacious, individually styled double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, Riad Ziri is fully air conditioned and has every comfort. Guests can access all areas of the house.
Apart from the 18 hole golf course, there is also a tennis academy within the complex. The spa/ gym and a small cafe is about 2 minutes walk away . The golf clubhouse with spectacular views of the Atlas mountains, has a restaurant and bar which is open to visitors.
The property is located within a gated development and provides a peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the Souks. At the same time it is in close proximity to the sites of Marrakesh, shopping areas, dining and excellent night-life.
Samira our housekeeper will assist you during your stay and help with any bookings, reservations and transport for small or large groups to Marrakech and the surrounding areas.
She can also organise breakfasts for $10 per person.

Riad Ziri is as lovely in real life as it is in the pictures although the living /dining areas are showing some wear and tear. The bedrooms are all large ,,comfortable and well appointed except for reading lights. Reading lights are a problem through out the house as there are none any where and it is impossible to read after it gets dark. Samira, the house keeper makes up the rooms every day so staying in the Riad is like being in a hotel. She will also make meals on request .. The one she made for us was very enjoyable. Rashid, the driver was excellent and very helpful. The property is a good distance from downtown so having your own car,, hiring a car and driver or taxi is essential. There is a Hotel nearby but we never saw any taxi's there on a regular basis. ”
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Ziri. Pradeep is such a kind and gracious host. He has given us so many tips regards to almost everything we could think about. He has also made his full time housekeeper available to us for various services upon request. Besides exploring all exciting restaurants and cafes Marrakech has to offer, we have had 2 fabulous dinners prepared by his housekeeper Samira, and they were delicious! We'd love to return to Marrakech and to Riad Ziri if we ever get the chance again! Thank you Pradeep!!!”
Riad Ziri Marrakesh, Morocco
My group very much enjoyed our stay at Riad Ziri. Samira, the housekeeper and cook, is a marvel. So pleasant and her meals were terrific. I would recommend having her cook as often as possible when visiting Riad Ziri. Rashid, the recommended driver, is also a wonder. He served us well and was always there for us with suggestions and advice. The house was also incredibly beautiful and well appointed. Thank you Pradeep for letting us stay there. ”
Mad for Marrakech!
Marrakech was magical in every way. The house was perfection. The setting is removed from the city a bit and in a beautiful golf development with 24 hour security. The home is very private with an enclosed pool. We loved using the outdoor space. Each suite is private and in pristine condition. The pictures do not do the house justice. It is truly stunning. The staff was beyond helpful and attentive. Samira was incredibly kind and a wonderful cook. I highly suggest letting her cook dinner. It was our favorite Moroccan food we had the whole week. The owners were extremely helpful in planning and recommending their lovely driver Rachid who helped us all week. I cannot wait to return to this hospitable country. ”
Thank you Lidia & Pradeep for the opportunity of experiencing Riad Ziri and for being the consummate host in ensuring we were well taken care of. It was for us a memorable and wonderful experience! We were pampered from arrival and for the duration of our amazing stay. The beautiful garden was one of our favorite places, each bedroom was tastefully appointed and comfortable. Samira's cooking was delicious and she took excellent care of us. Rachid was an exceptional driver and local expert. We loved being in Morocco!”
Peace and luxury
This beautiful modern interpretation of a riad is an absolute delight. The garden filled with birdsong and beautiful plants, the good sized pool, the charming atrium complete with palm tree and pool, the privacy of the roof garden, the beautifully appointed bedrooms (I especially loved the little sitting nook in the ground floor bedroom, and the bath in one of the upstairs bedrooms is amazing)/ We were greeted with smiles, mint tea and sweet snacks when we arrived and everything was maintained well for us throughout our stay. The recommended driver did a great job of understanding our odd requests and shepherding us around courteously and efficiently (which was just as well as there wasn't much within walking distance, though lots of good walks within the complex). Definitely highly recommended!”
A piece of paradise in Marrakech
We had the most amazing short break in Riad Ziri. Pradeep was fantastic! He helped me to organise my trip and birthday celebration with tips on restaurants, places to go, what to expect etc.. Samira, the caretaker, was very sweet and welcomed us with a lovely Moroccan tea. Due to hamadan, restaurants in the resort were only serving snack foods and Samira was happy accommodate our change of plans and cooked us a delicious bbq and vegetable tangine for lunch. The house is terrific. The owners paid attention to every single detail, from candles to fragrances; The high ceilings and sumptuous master bathroom, in addition to the contemporary luxury decor are simply stunning. We ended up spending more time in the pool that we planned initially as we felt it was a little oasis in the hot crazy Marrakech. Thank you so much Pradeep and Lidia for sharing your amazing home with us! Simply perfect!”
