My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Marrakech and throughout our holiday we stayed in 3 different Riads, two of which were considered 'luxurious'. This was definitely the case for the Riad Farnatchi where we spent our final evening.
The service was impressive, really 5* quality and made the experience that much better. We were taken aback with how much guidance was offered for our trip, information on places to visit, tricks for getting cheaper taxi fares, and so on. We stayed in room 6 which is one of two suites with a private terrace...perfect for sunbathing and outdoor lunches or evening drinks. The room was enormous, over two floors with main reception and fire place on the first floor, rainfall shower + separate bathtub and beautifully decorated bedroom on the 2nd floor. For those of you Molton Brown lovers, bathroom comes fully equipped! Upon arrival the owner left a booklet for us to read through, everything you need to know about the Riad, lunch, dinner and breafast menu which pretty much offers any type of egg imaginable and a personal (and quite humorous) guide into the best restaurants to visit in Marrakech. Would recommend eating elsewhere than the Riad as there are some amazing restaurants with better food and value, but we are aware that the owner is expanding and will be opening a new restaurant alongside the Riad and I'm sure that will be something worth experiencing.
If you fancy a movie after a great night out, they also offer a portable disk drive with great selection of US and other foreign films (just ask reception).
The luxurious and personal experience ended with the owner (James) personally driving us to the airport!
FYI, if you are in a dilemna or torn about which luxurious Riads to choose from, then look no further than the Riad Farnatchi!
Thanks again for a memorable stay!
