I have just returned from an incredible 50th birthday girly break! 3 nights at the Riad Assakina.
The Riad is beautiful, stylish and tranquil. For our trip we took the whole Riad and this made it a truly memorable break as it became our home and haven from the madness that is Marrakech. The level of service and hospitality from our hosts, Grant and Michele was second to none.
On arrival we were served mint tea and delicious stuffed figs, we were very late and yet we were made to feel welcome. We were shown round the Riad a quick check in then off out, as they had arranged for us to eat in a local restaurant and we were taken there by one of the amazing staff who work at the Riad, and given delicious recommendations.
The breakfasts each day were wonderful, fabulous pancakes, amazing french toast, only 2 from the extensive choices. Michele and Grant gave my friend (the incredible organiser :0)) ideas on how best to spend our time in Marrakech, and their suggestions were spot on. They organised everything, from the gifts from me on the beds to the camel rides, hamman spa treatments, booked the restaurants, taxis, and Michele even took us shopping so that we got the best prices in the best places.
We had my party night at the Riad (see pic) and Michelle's team cooked us an incredible feast! We had brilliant traditional musicians and a belly dancer. The staff made the evening for me by coming out and dancing with us. They made the night such great fun. Great local wine also!!!! ;) Thank you all.
Please do have a look at Michele little shop. She has the most beautiful locally sourced clothes, jewellery, cushions and WONDERFUL mementos. So beautiful and very chic!
Thank you all so much. xxx
