My girlfriend and I visited Marrakech to celebrate her birthday in mid-July, staying at the Riad Le Clos des Arts for two nights. It's a beautiful Riad, right in the heart of the medina, and is an oasis of calm in contrast to life and buzz of the city. It's the perfect place to retreat to when you need to recharge your batteries after a day exploring the city. Giorgina and Massimo made us feel at home from the moment we entered the Riad, greeting us with some delicious mint tea, friendly smiles, and some priceless advice on what to and what not to do in the city. Our visit to Marrakech was greatly enhanced by their suggestions.
We stayed in Corail, which is a beautiful room - like the whole Riad, it's exactly what you would hope for when you imagine an idyllic home in Marrakech. Beautiful Moroccan furniture, the scent of Jasmine all around, attentive service that is always there when you want it, and never in your face or crowding you.
We ate breakfast and lunch (specially laid on at our request at an awkward time of day) at the Riad - the food was probably the best we ate in Marrakech. And we ate a lot of good food in Marrakech, so that's no mean feat.
The Riad was spotlessly clean, and felt less like a boutique hotel and more like a luxury home. We really couldn't recommend it enough. We've been fortunate to stay in some of the best hotels around the world in the last few years. I wouldn't think twice about ranking Riad Le Clos des Arts right up there with the best of them. We'll be going back. If you're planning a trip to Marrakech, look no further. And if they're fully booked, re-arrange your trip for a time when they have availability - it'll make your visit.
