Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

In a prime and desirable location (Bab Doukala) this stunning, centuries old riad, has been totally refurbished by local master craftsmen. It has five ensuite bedrooms, all with air-conditioning, and a plunge pool. Original features such as cedar wood beamed ceilings, with the addition of ensuite bathrooms in sculpted tadelakt, and elegant arches and columns makes Dar Rocmarra unique.

Each bedroom has been individually designed by the English owners, whilst all different in style, all have the highest level of comfort. The Douria Suite can accommodate four people on request.

A sunny courtyard is shaded by a 100 year old Olive tree, home to 'Karma' the chameleon. The sunken Bhou (seating area) with its cosy open fire and sumptuous velvet cushions is a lovely place to relax, read, catch-up on emails, take a pre-dinner drink, or just listen to the water trickle into the petal-strewn dipping pool.

The roof terrace has dramatic views over Marrakech and the mountains, it's a favourite place to chill. You can recline on sofas or sun loungers and soak up the sun, take breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just enjoy a drink under the pergola and watch the sun set. There is also a cooling shower.

The recommended in-house Moroccan cuisine prepared by Jamila is exceptional, with lunch and dinner service. However, you are just a few minutes walk from some of the most renowned restaurants of Marrakech. The riad prides itself on the excellence of its staff.
