About the Riad
Are you looking for a luxury riad in Marrakech? Riad el Zohar offers everything you need for an unforgettable stay in the city. This stunning 18th century courtyard house sits in the popular Mouassine district in the heart of the ancient Medina. It’s a five minute walk from the city’s most popular attractions but retains a calm and tranquil atmosphere away from the bustle of the streets. Close to Jemna el Fna Square and the famous souks, this may be the finest luxury riad Marrakech has to offer.
The riad has a traditional layout – the building surrounds a charming outdoor space which has its own swimming pool. Guests can take a dip any time they like to get away from the Marrakech heat. This is one of the ultimate luxurious experiences while you stay in the city; it’s wonderful to return to riad after a day of exploring and relax in the pool.
We also offer sumptuous Moroccan cuisine, serving in one of our two saloons or on the beautiful roof terrace. From the terrace you can enjoy scintillating views out onto the medina. This is undoubtedly one of the most scenic places to stay in the city.
The luxury riad places you in the perfect place to explore the city, as you’re at the heart of the historic Medina. The accommodation has been carefully and sympathetically restored into a boutique hotel in Marrakech that retains original features including a four sided balcony that looks down on the central courtyard with a plunge pool.
With friendly and knowledgeable staff, we are happy to provide any help to make your stay as amazing as possible. Whether you’re looking for cookery lessons, advice on local attractions or just the best places to eat, we are always happy to help.
The idea of the courtyard was originally to provide a space for the family who owned the riad to stay out of the heat – but the pool makes for a wonderful addition to allow you to enjoy a refreshing dip, so take advantage of our lovely pool facilities. Pools are not a typical feature of riads in Marrakech and our guests often comment on how wonderful it is to have the chance to lounge in a pool during their stay.
