Arrival at 1am after 22 hours in transit could have been tricky, but we were welcomed warmly by our host Hassan and taken to a charming room, which had been traditionally and tastefully decorated in soothing tones (and I loved the space for the suitcases behind the bedhead, tucked out of the way). Complete with hair dryer, bath oils and natural beauty products, which you must try (I learnt about their special properties when I was out with our guide the following day), it was an unexpected surprise after a long and tiring day. Following a beautiful breakfast (the best fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice, creamy yoghurt, muesli, croissants, breads, and tea/coffee) on the rooftop terrace underneath our white tent (so Arabian), we set off for the day with our guide to explore the lively city of Marrakech, which had been organised for us by Mark Willenbrock, whom we had hired to arrange a personal itinerary for us while visiting Morocco (the best travel idea we've had EVER!!!).
Returning to our Riad after a fabulous day, a smiling Hassan insisted upon serving us Morocco's own mint tea, with flair and true style.
Nothing was too much trouble for our ever smiling host. Visiting this establishment should be on anyone's itinerary who would like to visit a traditional Riad inside the Marrakech Medina.
