From the moment of arrival you are made to feel special, a vip even. Wending your way through medieval streets preceded by men wheeling your luggage. A secret door is reached and you are ushered into a sublime paradise. Your cares ebb away as you cross a cool marble courtyard with rippling pool and are led to a sumptuous haven,... More

My partner and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Riad Farnatchi over New Year's, and the title says it all. Wow! What an amazing property. The riad is stunning, with beautifully decorated rooms (we stayed in Suite 8, overlooking the pool), several courtyards and alcoves, sitting areas, a restaurant and large roof terrace. It was truly an oasis from... More

Riad Farnatchi is without doubt one of the best hotels this particular reviewer has experienced. Standards are high across the board; James Wix and his team seamlessly combine a cool Moroccan style with home-from-home comforts. Suites are large, luxurious and inviting, full of the sort of little touches one often craves but doesn't often get from expensive but ultimately rather... More

Riad Farnatchi really is in its own oasis of calm and quiet, yet in the perfect location to step out for dinner, visit the souks and experience the hustle and bustle of beautiful Marrakech. Amazing staff, superb food and luxurious rooms makes for an absolutely outstanding stay. I would highly recommend and will definitely go back.

A wonderful escape from the busy mayhem outside the Riad. I was a little alarmed when we had to get out of our cab and walk through donkeys, cats, bikes, motorbikes in the dark but soon got used to it. The staff were lovely. Nothing was too much. Roof terrace was a great place for breakfast, supper or lying in... More

There are some places that just amaze and delight you when traveling no matter how high your expectations are...and amidst the cacophony of life, smells, sounds and color that are Marrakech and its Medina, Riad Farnatchi stands far above many if not all of them. Why is it not higher rated on tripadvisor- likely because it only has 9 rooms... More

I guess, you think that `how can he say that?!` Ok I have only saw three riads in Marrakech but when I came to riad Farnachi, I felt that this is the perfect riad, it fills completely the idea I had of a riad. I had the room with the patio in the middle, spaceful and relaxing, in the bathroom... More

This is the perfect getaway at Christmas. The riyadh is in the most wonderful location, a delightful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the souks. The attentiveness and discretion of the staff is to be applauded, and James Wix has an excellent army of staff working for him. The carefully considered touches over Christmas included mince pies strategically... More

If you are looking for a riad, look no further- this one is perfect. The location is ideal: tucked down a quiet little street a few steps from Ben Yousef Madrasa and the souks. The bustle of Marrakech dropped away the instant we stepped into this gorgeous riad. Tranquil, cool courtyards with the burble of water (including a very inviting... More

You can rent this entire Riad for you and your friends and let the fabulous staff take care of every little detail for your special occasion. From the catering to the theme to be for the event, whatever you wish. Just picture this, each room themed to what ever you fancy and the DJ spinning your choice of music poolside.
