Imagine stepping out of your cab (sent by your hosts, of course) because the streets are too narrow to continue into a cacophonous movie set. Your guide and staff trundle the luggage onto a hand cart and lead you on through dun colored walled passageways to a black door which opens to a quiet, cool, tranquil oasis...a tiled moorish courtyard and the sounds of singing birds and running water....and then things get better. The rooms are large, exotic and quite comfortable (top floor in winter is warmer). The staff thinks of everything so that you truly feel you are the most fortunate guest of the most gracious host in some enchanted realm. Located just at the edge of the souk, the riad somehow manages to stay a world apart. The hosts, Jamie, Marad and Muriam are pitch perfect, their recommendations spot on and always helpful. The food is superb and with only 9 rooms it seems you have your own chef for breakfast and, if you wish, dinner when and where you choose. There are so many nice touches, canapés on the balcony, hot water bottles in bed (it was cool this March). If you go out to dinner, they make the reservation and provide a cab to take you there and back. But then they walk you to the cab (parked in wider streets a few minutes away) and are waiting when you return.I could go on and on but how about this....after 30 years of upscale world travel, in the Riad Farnatchi and this management team my wife and I finally experienced perfect hospitality.
