Elegant riad in Marrakech, 6 bedrooms, beautiful terraces and views, fantastic swimming pool, fully staffed.

The Home

This elegant riad (or courtyard house) is located in the heart of Kaat Benahid, one of the most authentic districts in the Medina of Marrakech. The legendary Koutoubia and Jemaa el Fna Place are only a short ten minute walk away from the riad.

The riad was refurbished by architect Chirstophe Siméon, honouring traditional restoration techniques as well as the arabo-andalous architecture. B'hou, patio, menzeh, doukkana and terrace are many places for intimacy. There is a pool and a fountain-basin that welcomes clients during the warmest hours of Marrakech. Their filtered and heated water allows you to enjoy them during every season.

The riad offers 6 suites with twin or separated beds, one of them being able to host 3 persons. Each suite presents genuine personality and charm, in the comfort of its amenities, the refinement of the house linen and the elegance of its decoration. The bathrooms, all in taddelakt, create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

Glaoui Suite
The Glaoui Suite, on the first floor, will charm honeymoon couples with its private staircase opening to the sky in summer by a "douaya", an elegant lounge area and a bathroom surmounted by a dome like many traditional hammams. Double bed (possibility 2 single beds).

Patio Suite
The Patio Suite has high ceilings and is decorated in the oriental style. Accommodation includes a private bathroom separated from the guest quarters by light and graceful curtains. Double bed (possibility 2 single beds).

The bathroom is spacious and equiped with 2 basins and a generous bathtub with a "douaya" opened to the sky in summer. Double bed (possibility 2 single beds).

Fez Suite
The Fez Suite on the first floor is preceded by a quiet and cosy loggia overlooking the patio and is delicately decorated with watercolours by Delacroix. A private bathroom includes a bathtub and 2 basins. Double bed (possibility 2 single beds).

A little house for 4 people, with 2 luxurious suites with a private bathroom, double basins, bath. Double beds (possibility two single beds). The "patio-living room" offers a dining room and an open fire (patio can be covered in winter). Private terraces allow you to have a magnificent view to Koutoubia and the Atlas mountains.

We loved the grounds. The riad is gorgeous. The staff was incredible. They were very supportive. The dinner was absolutely delicious.
Lack of communication.
My only gripe on this INCREDIBLE riad is the pillows. I survived anyhow. ; )
Bouchra, the manager, runs the place with a velvet glove. She is organized, tough and nice.
Rashida, our chef as extraordinary. First class.
I could not recommend the place more highly.

Lydia of Villanovo was fantastic.
