The Peace of the Medina
From the heart of Marrakech, the Djemma al Fna, you follow a lane that escapes from the colorful souqs (bazaars) through a labyrinth of alleyways full of enticing entrances to hidden hideaways. The hustle and bustle of the square ceases as you wind your way to the riad’s entrance at the end of the lane. There, in the quiet, historic residential district, you will find an enchanting house lovingly restored with respect to the traditional Moroccan style, yet with all the modern conveniences.
Inside the riad there are five beautifully decorated ensuite guest rooms spread over two levels, surrounding a courtyard with a central calming water feature, dining tables and chairs, and an open study/sitting room with a huge fireplace for cooler evenings. On the first floor there is a summer sitting room with settees adorned with colorful Moroccan cushions. Above that is the open-air roof terrace where a continental breakfast is served daily; there is also a hamman (steam room) and hot and cold tub.
Hammam, Massages, Gourmet Meals (to order)
When you return to the riad, you can make use of our private hamman to have a whole-body exfoliation or relaxing massage, either on your own or with a partner (unlike the public hammams in Marrakech, which are segregated for men and women).
Whether in the courtyard, the summer salon or on the rooftop terrace, you will be able to taste the delightful preparations of our in-house chef, who will gladly prepare an exquisite evening meal for you on request.
We are always available to advise you about anything regarding your stay in Marrakech, and if you wish we can also organise activities or excursions to places of interest, such as treks in the High Atlas by horseback, four-wheel drive or motorbike.
PLEASE NOTE IF YOU CANCEL LESS THAN 7 DAYS IN ADVANCE - WE WILL TAKE THE 1ST NIGHTS ACCOMMODATION AS A CANCELLATION FEE.
