Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

We are an elegant new Riad located in the traditional Bab Doukkala neighbourhood of the Medina within a minutes walk of the 12th Century Medina Gate. We are perfectly positioned in between the heart of the 'old city' Medina - Djemaa El Fna, and the heart of the 'new city of' Gueliz - Marrakesh Plaza. Each of these destinations can be easily reached within a 10 minute walk.

All of our rooms have been beautifully decorated and feature a luxurious marble bathroom with traditional tadelakt walls and a modern candy stripe effect. The oversized suites boast a deep marble bath and warm cozy fire place. Additional amenities include air-conditioning/heating, an oversized wardrobe, personal safe, hair dryer, an ipod docking station, complimentary bottled water, sumptuous memory foam bed, high quality linen, fluffy towels and delicious bath & body products.

Like all traditional Moroccan Riads, the rooms of the house are arranged around the central open-air courtyard. The courtyard is adorned with beautiful filigree lighting, vibrant Bougainvillea and a peaceful water fountain. The Salon is a fusion of traditional Moroccan craftsmanship combined with a chic contemporary influence. The remarkable fireplace with its intricate plaster carving, stunning artisan lights, ancient fossils and artefacts complement the floor to ceiling glass windows, polished marble floor and designer furniture to create an opulent living space. The room is also air-conditioned and has a flat screen TV with Satellite channels, IPOD docking station, CD player, selection of interesting books and familiar board games.

The dining room is an extension of the opulent salon with its floor to ceiling arched glass walls and over sized mirrors. The ceiling an array of spectacular hand crafted spheres creating a star like atmosphere. (Note: This room will be converted into a plunge pool after the winter season 2010, please contact us via e-mail for an update).

The Roof Terrace is a hidden oasis with swaying coco palms, fragrant creepers and exotic flowers high above the streets of the busy Medina. Its the perfect place to soak up the glorious Moroccan sun on one of the sun lounges or the comfy day bed; whilst sipping a refreshing drink. The large tent features 2 antique Berber tent poles and has a shaded seating area making it an ideal place to relax with a book or pot of mint tea.

We are an English owned and managed boutique hotel with exceptional staff providing the best of traditional Moroccan hospitality.
