“Oasis of Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This riad has been owned by the same family for over 200 years and their pride of ownership is apparent everywhere you look. It's impossible to find a single nook or cranny that isn't decorated with impeccable taste and beauty. If you are looking for riad style accommodations in Marrakech look no further.

The appearance and cleanliness of this property are not the only things to rave about. The graciousness and professionalism of the staff here are second to none. Any request will be answered with an "of course". For our party of 6 people this included special birthday plans.

One further tip - take the cooking class, which includes a trip to the local market to buy spices and vegetables. Besides being instructive it's a lot of fun.

“Absolutely memorable and wonderful place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

I have never reviewed anything but Kniza deserves a glowing review.
I was blown away by the understated opulence, the hospitality and the tranquility of this place. It was a terrific way to finish my 2 week sojourn in Morocco.
I did a one on one cooking class with chef Amina - she was delightful and I am brought back to Morocco when ever I cook some of her wonderful dishes or those inspired by her.
This was one of the most memorable travel experiences.
Thank you so much, I really hope to return.

“Amazing banquet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

So many delicious samples of local dishes in beautiful surroundings. The staff were charming. The meal was accompanied by local musicians who played discreetly in the background which just added to the overall atmosphere. Understated charm.

“Top notch Marrakech glamour,treat yourself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Marrakech offers an abundance of opportunities to dine, most of them very good. Riad Kniza is a cut above. You enter into a sumptuous, elegant dining area having passed through an incredibly stylish and beautifully executed Riad. The service could not have been better, friendly, courteous and unpretentious. The meal was perhaps the best you can get in Marrakech, endless amounts of food on their signature tasting menu which was beautifully presented. If you miss this little gem you've really missed out. Get your hotel to call in advance and book. Top marks.
