Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

Villa Amira and Spa is a perfect hideaway for all. It is situated in the upcoming Gueliz area of Marrakech, close to the main restaurants in town, and 5 minutes by taxi or 20 minute walk to the medina. Villa Amira is built in a typical Moroccan style it blends Arabic architecture and European decor over 700 square metres to create a unique ambience in which to relax and enjoy every minute of your holiday.

A 10 min walk from the lush Majorelle Gardens, owned by Yves St Laurent, the villa has 8 spacious guest rooms each individually decorated with beautifully crafted furniture and splashes of colours unique to the Moroccan way of life.

Whether you are relaxing by the pool, dining in or just having a delicious local tea the staff at Villa Amira and Spa are ever attentive and there to make sure all your needs are met. The villa is dotted with small public areas so that you may feel like you have the villa all to yourselves.

The owners Paola and Aurore have recently left the busy city of Paris in order to settle in the ever expanding city of Marrakech. Both have worked in the top establishments in Paris after having graduated from Swiss hotelier universities. Their studies and experience ensure that standards are exceptional and that each guest is individually catered for anticipating your needs.

Located in the sublimely calm ground floor of the Villa is the Spa area where you can get a wide variety of treatments from the specialized staff. A hammam, scrub room and massage parlour offer all you may desire to relax either before or after visiting the busy sites of Marrakech. Afterwards you are free to relax in the zen atmosphere of the post treatment lounge area.

Enjoy the fantastic tastes of individually prepared local cuisine for either lunch or dinner with minimal notice to the chef. Also at the villa will be a light lunch menu that can be ordered from, most of the afternoon. This includes light salads, pasta and other Mediterranean dishes.

"The hotel was lovely and they accommodated my every whim. The hotel met my expectations and the service exceeded my expectations. The food was great."

"Your riad is truly beautiful and really took my breath away when I first stepped through the door. We felt really welcomed and it was fantastic that you provided a number of pointers to help start us on our Moroccan journey. The service from your staff was excellent, they were extremely friendly and so helpful - we really could not have asked for anything more. It was not easy for us to leave Amira and I will remember my stay with great fondness.

I will certainly be recommending Villa Amira to colleagues and friends for their stays in Morocco."
