Having never been to Marrakech before, I had mixed feelings of excitement and trepidation on entering the Medina. All feelings of nervousness was instantly dissipated upon arrival at the Farnatchi. The staff were charming, helpful, discreet and exceptionally polite. The villa its self can only be described as a "luxury oasis" quietly tucked away in the centre of the old town. The rooms deliver on every level to that expected of 5 star accommodation, whilst each room retains an individual theme with a blend of traditional Moroccan and uber chic. James Wicks, manager of the Riad was not only extraordinarily helpful but also a most delightful host. His suggestions and advice on restaurants, food, wine and sightseeing were all superb, and his knowledge and recommendations of the city and outside of Marrakech allowed us to see and do everything we could have hoped for. Would have been utterly lost without him! Our stay at the Riad was exceptional and I very much look forward to going back again
