Tucked away behind a high wall in the labyrinthine alleys of the Marrakesh Medina, this beautiful riad enchanted us from the moment we stepped inside the wooden door. What is not to like about the orange trees in the patios, the relaxing sound of the water in the fountains, the small pool, the banana tree, the lounge sofas, the rooftop terrace, the food, the free fruit and drinks, the sounds of the surrounding city? Every little detail (and there were many) felt authentic and exotic. The beautifully designed rooms were spacious and well equipped with details like the Moroccan brass sink. Who needs airconditioning when you can design a building with natural materials that is even better at keeping the heat out?
Best of all were the owners and the other staff who made us feel right at home. They gave us a helpful introduction to the city and assisted us with every question we had. With their help it was easy to forget about the chaos of the city and feel like royalty in your small palace.
