Enjoy an unforgettable and authentic stay in a converted home in Marrakech with all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel. As well as opulently furnished rooms and a beautiful courtyard swimming pool, our stunning boutique hotel also provides everything from luxury dining offering authentic Moroccan cuisine, to delightful cookery lessons, airport transfers and business services, including free Wi-Fi.
Our historic renovated hotel is situated in the popular Moussaine district in the heart of the ancient Medina. We do everything we can for our guests to immerse them in an authentic visit to one of the world’s favourite destinations. We know the Medina like the back of our hand, so we’ll point you to all of the city’s most popular attractions and to some of our hidden gems to make your stay the fabulous cultural experience you’ve been dreaming about.
Here are just some of the services we love to offer our guests, but if there is anything else you need, all you have to do is ask and we will do our best to make your stay all that you hoped for and more.
Just let us know your airline, flight number, and arrival time and we’ll send a driver to meet you. Your driver will take you to the outskirts of the Medina where you’ll be met by a local porter who will guide you and carry your luggage on a handcart directly to the Riad’s front door. Find out more about this service and costs here.
We arrange several day trips if you are keen to explore further afield while you are here, which include:
• The picturesque Atlas Mountains
• The coastal fortified port of Essaouira
• The edge of the desert at Quarzazate
• 4-day trips to the Sahara desert
• The Unesco-protected, fortified village Aït Benhaddou (this red mud-brick city has featured in many films as a replacement for Jerusalem)
• The stunning mosaics of Glaoui Kasbah (Kasbah Telouet)
• The Atlas Film Studios
We recommend two independent British Operators offering great personal, tailored services. In our experience, the very large, international tour operators often provide an inferior service.
Naturally Morocco is a small caring family business with a thorough knowledge of Morocco, established many years. Their advice will be excellent
Fleewinter is slightly larger. Having started with just Morocco and South Africa 18 years ago, they have, as they have grown, maintained the same philosophy of having small dedicated teams looking after a particular country, so that they know their product well. The Moroccan team is unchanged for many years.
Both companies are ABTA bonded for your security. Both companies send their staff out to stay in all their Moroccan hotels and riads so that they know the hotels and staff intimately and also importantly, the location, whilst checking that high standards are being maintained.
Enjoy superb authentic Moroccan cuisine at the Riad, served either in our courtyard, on our romantic terrace with views of the Medina, or in one of our private salons.
