Located in a renewed and safe area of the Medina, 20 minutes walk to the square throughout the amazing and colorful souks. The house has its own spirit and you instantly feel... More

Stepping off the noisy, dry, dusty and glaringly bright Marrakech streets into this riad and you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd fallen into some other surreal reality. Imagine cascades of flowers, the air heavy with sweet perfume and birds flitting from tree to tree. It's like staying in a perfectly crafted film set. There are only 3 rooms so it... More

Walking back into Riad Samsara's heavenly courtyard, with its tinkling fountain, strewn with scented rose petals is like entering the world of to the 'real Morocco'. Bougainvillea cascades over the balconies, the interiors are full of Moroccan antiques, artefacts and sumptuous fabrics. A delightful roof terrace awaits you, where welcoming and smiling staff, serve your delicious Moroccan style breakfast (with... More

This really could be a home straight from the pages of Vogue magazine, every detail is considered, every comfort - from the soft Egyptian cotton sheets, the cloud-like mattress toppers, to everything you might need in the bathroom. And everywhere you turn your head there is something to delight the eyes - the furniture, the lamps, the shiny brass candle... More
