The Riad Assakina is truly something special. It's the combination of a beautifully decorated riad and the graciousness of the owners, Grant and Michele, and their staff, which will transform your visit to Marrakech into a truly wonderful and memorable experience.
My wife, daughter and I had two suites at the Riad Assakina, the Kaid and Merenid suites, in mid April 2014. In all our travels it's rare to say that a hotel truly makes your experience special--however the Assakina does. It is an oasis of peace, calm and beauty in what can be an a noisy, hectic and chaotic city. We loved Marrakech---meeting the people, bargaining at the souks and enjoying the food. Coming back to the riad to relax, eat, take a dip in the pool, talk to the staff and share experiences with Grant and Michele makes your Marrakech experience even more enjoyable.
As beautiful as the riad is--Michele is a truly talented interior designer with exquisite taste, it's Grant, Michele and their staff that elevates this hotel above all others. Staying with Grant and Michele is like staying with your favorite old friends. They are perfect hosts--- warm, funny, engaging, smart, well travelled and very helpful. They arranged all our travels-- pick up and drop off at the airport, a tour of the medina, and day trips outside of Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou and Essaouira.Their restaurant recommendations and advice on where to purchase items were spot on as they would say. From the lovely breakfast, to the cake and Moroccan tea in the afternoon, to a late night snack or drink all combined with enagaing conversation it was always a pleasure to spend time in the riad. The staff all share Grant and Michele's qualities---they are gracious friendly and fluent in numerous languages.
The Riad Assakina is the perfect counterbalance to Marrakech. It's that balance that elevates your trip and has you wishing that you could stay just a little bit longer.
