About this listing
Elegant traditional architecture meets modern design in this peaceful oasis with 6 bedrooms, a jacuzzi-pool, hammam and a large sunny roof-terrace with Berber tents. An adjacent private 2 bedroom house also available.
Our Riad is an amazing Guesthouse nestled in the heart of the Medina, or old quarter of Marrakech, just a stroll away from the Souks, Medersa Ben Youssef and Djema El Fna Square. A jacuzzi-pool, hammam, spa treatments and great cuisine are available for our guests to indulge in and enjoy.
Near the Mosque Sidi Ahmed Soussi, in the popular Sidi Ben Sliman district, the Riad provides luxury accommodation in a traditional Moorish house finely restored using contemporary design.
The Riad has 4 beautiful guestrooms and 2 suites, decorated with understated elegance, as well as spa facilities for a relaxing and pampering stay in Marrakesh.
Guests are invited to lounge in the shade of the banana trees in the courtyard while listening to the fountain, unwind in the jacuzzi-pool hidden in a former Bhou or to enjoy the Turkish Bath/hammam. Why not stretch out on the sun-loungers and take the sun on the roof terrace or chill out in the Berber tent... And in the evening, enjoy delicious Moroccan cuisine, served either on the patio, roof terrace or in the dining-room.
If you need more space you can also rent our Douiria, a private 2 bedroom house with a large sitting / dining room, a cosy lounge and a lovely terrace. It is linked to the main riad through the rooftop terrace.
Guests have access to the jacuzzi, hammam, central patio and roof-top terrace.
