This being my forth holiday to Marrakech, I was looking for somewhere a little different and totally spoiling to stay with delicious food, impeccable service and in close proximity to the main square. In Riad Farnatchi I certainly found all this and much more. A traditional riad that has been beautifully restored and transformed into a stunning luxury boutique hotel. With it's stylish contemporary and Moroccan design it has a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. The staff could not be more helpful or friendly and the food was out of this world - the best I have tasted in any retaurant in Marrakech.
The Riad can serve your meals in any part of the hotel, breakfast on the roof terrace is a must, with views over the city and up to the Atlas mountains. There are also many hidden alcoves, sitting rooms and private balconies to choose from and not forgetting the dramatic main dining room with intricately hand carved walls.
One of the highlights of our stay was the hammam, in keeping with Moroccan tradition, a real eye-opening experience and I have never felt so clean!
The beauty of this charming hotel is that it is family run so the owner and his son have an active interest in the business and you will be sure to meet one of them on numerous occasions during your stay. They have a very hands-on approach and are more than willing to help you plan your day, recommend restaurants or arrange a special treat for you.
We had a very fantastic holiday at Farnatchi and I would happily recommend it to anyone. In fact I have already booked to return later this year and am counting down the days.
