We have just spent 6 days at Riad Kniza, the perfect end to an 18 day stay in Marrakech. From the minute I contacted the riad by email from our home near Seattle, they helped to arrange the stay and offered special deals and excursions to the coast and to the desert that would have been difficult to arrange on our own.
We arrived at the riad after spending a full day on the road coming back from the dunes and were greeted by Kamal, the son of the owner, who gratefully recognized how exhausted we were and arranged a fantastic small meal for us before showing us to the Ambar Suite: a two story set of rooms up the stairs right off of the reception. The riad has the MOST comfortable bed we have slept on in a long time and amazing, soft, high count cotton sheets as well. We slept like babies, only to awaken to a fabulous breakfast served in our room which we, like everyone else who has left a review here has said, could not once finish.
The last night of our stay we were upgraded to the Royal Suite which was an incredible treat. Three huge rooms and so many closets and cubbyholes that we almost got lost in the space. It was a fun way to end our stay at the magical riad.
We found the Hammam and the massages to be superb. The restaurant is entirely deserving of its' great reputation. The staff was excellent and catered to our every whim. Our driver Abdou was our mentor and teacher and became a lifelong friend. It was a first time trip to Morocco for me and I fell in love with the country and the people AND the Riad Kniza. We will return. Inshallah.
