Riad Farnatchi is an absolute hidden gem situated in the heart of the bustling & very busy Medina of Marrakesh.
From the moment you step through the heavy, beautifully carved wooden door, you leave all traces of reality behind and lose yourself in a fantasy world where only absolute calm, quietness & tranquility exist.
The courtyards, where the trickle of water fountains are ever present, are in a word: breathtaking! By trapping the cooler air inside, these courtyards create a welcoming, cool oasis in a world where almost unbearable heat seems to be the norm.
The rooms are very well appointed & spacious with lots of modern amenities. It even come complete with an iPod dock! Although each one is individually decorated, they have managed to weave the Moroccan theme very cleverly throughout. I just absolutely loved the pair of soft cream Babouche slippers & Djelaba gown I got to take home as souvinirs!
Then there is your very own private rooftop terrace, complete with rose bushes, palm & olive trees, where you can sunbath, enjoy meals or just take in the views of Marrakesh.
We enjoyed most meals at the Riad & the food was fabulous while the staff were very attentive, yet discreet. The firm hand of ever present & very experienced and capable management can be seen throughout the Riad.
In a nutshell, our stay was awesome & an experience well worth returning to...
