I have just returned from Morocco and from 2 nights at Riad Farnatchi with a couple of friends. I don't normally write reviews but our time at the Riad was exceptional so I thought I would get online and write one!
We had been trekking in the Atlas Mountains for 3 days beforehand with a fantastic guide recommended by Riad Farnatchi but after a few days in a mountain refuge we were looking forward to some TLC when we got to Marrakech.
Riad Farnatchi did not disappoint. From the second we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The room was amazing, with a beautiful living area and a wonderfully comfy bed. Canapés were served both evenings and a toasty fire was lit in one of the salons where decided to have pre dinner drinks.
The staff were only too happy to give advice on places to eat and shopping/bartering tips for the medina- all of which is a short walk away.
Both mornings we were served a beautiful breakfast. We had it once in the fire-warmed salon and then on the second day, wrapped up and enjoyed it on the roof top terrace. The terrace is fantastic and a wonderful place to absorb the ambience of Marrakech.
We also had a Hammam followed by a massage at the hotel. The Hammam was a great experience but the massage was incredible-just what we needed to ease the trekking aches and pains! Apparently Riad Farnatchi is to open a new spa in the future which I'm sure will be equally luxurious.
For a luxurious tranquil retreat in the heart of Marrakech Riad Farnatchi would certainly not disappoint. My only regret is that we couldn't stay any longer!
