We stayed at Riad Kniza in March, and booked on the pictures and reviews on here. Staying in a Riad in Marrakech has been on my do to list, and Kniza did not disappoint. It is stunning. I won't go on, as you can clearly see from the pictures that is really is beautiful.
We stayed in a Junior Suite and enjoyed every luxurious minute. We ate in on our 1st night and the food was the best we had in Marrakech, very generous portions, I was upset I could not finish it all. I thought the food and drinks were well priced. And the pastries with every single Mint Tea were yummy. We ate breakfast every morning on the terrace, the orange juice was delicious, eggs either boiled, poached or fried, various breads and cakes, jams etc, pastries, coffee, plenty.
The staff were attentive, discreet, helpful, everything you could ask for really. We were there during the last game of the Six Nations Rugby and the staff sent out a driver to find a bar which would be screening the match! Successfully I might add! They cannot do enough for you.
We used the sauna that was switched on specially for us, which was good, the pool was not heated, although we could request it, but were were only there for 3 nights, so not too fussed about swimming. We had a Hamam, fairly priced and a massage which could have been firmer, but that is just personal preference.
I know the Riad was fully booked, but we saw very few guests. It felt we had the place to ourselves. I recommend the half day tour as well, very informative.
We had a wonderful stay in Marrakech, and Riad Kniza made our trip extra special.
Thank you to Somerra and all the staff for a truly wonderful stay.
