I was dreaming about trip to Morocco with my boyfriend for a long time , was searching very carefully which riad to choose, and finally found the Riad Idra, reviews on the tripadvisor impressed me, and when we finally got there, we were amazed by this place , it was a little palace in the middle of the medina
The walk to the riad is very intriguing and then beautiful Karine opened the door and it was WOW!:)
We absolutely loved the Riad Idra, we didn't want to leave the place at all, all the rooms look fantastic, but the "The Aliya Suite" is special one, very sweet combination of french elegance with Moroccan style, i loved the design of the riad,and detailes, detailes in everything!!!
I would love to take some tips for designing our home, and lovely Karen gave us all the addresses where to find all that fantastic furnirure that was in the riad, the library room is amazing where we had not once mint tea, the dining room, the roof is fantastic , there was a special hidden spot in African style where you chill with a glass of wine and enjoy a spectacular view. The Riad Idra was home away from home( it was a palace)!
Every morning we had fantastic breakfast, specially cooked with our preferences, and we tasted some moroccan delicious things, make sure to try their special porridge and the omelette with dry meat
Thanks to Karine and all team who made our stay i Marrakech magic and unforgettable, Karine organised everything for us: booked carefully selected restaurants, where Mustafa was helping us to find the way in small streets of Medina, we especially liked our first night at Le Salama, lunches at Terrasse des epices, and there is a lot other wonderful places. Twice we had dinner at the Riad Idra, and it was so yammy, fish tagine...
Location is fantastic, everything is so close: all the nice restaurants, hammams, square, Medersa ben Youssef, thousands of souks, colorful locals
And my favorite thing was hammam in the Riad Idra, it was absolutely fabulous, moroccan scrub and then massage... Unique experience.. That was just before my flight, if i knew before that it would so relaxing i would go to hammam in Riad Idra every day:)
We would like to come back to this haven in Marrakech:)
Karine thank you and all team for our fantastic experience in marrakech, we hope to see you very soon again!!!
