About the Riad
If you’re in search of luxury riad accommodation in Marrakech, look no further than Riad el Zohar. A five minute walk from the major attractions of the city, the Riad is an oasis of calm from the bustling streets. This historic 18th century courtyard house with a pool is based in the popular Mouassine district right at the heart of the ancient Medina. Close to Jemna el Fna Square and the famous souks, this may be the finest luxury riad Marrakech has to offer.
Riad el Zohar has a traditional riad layout, with the building surrounding a pretty outdoor space with its own swimming pool where guests can take a dip to cool off in the Marrakech heat. You can dine on our excellent Moroccan cuisine in one of the two saloons or on the excellent roof terrace, where you can enjoy scintillating views of the Medina while you eat – this is truly one of the most scenic places to stay in the city.
The 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.
