“Absolutely wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Me and my partner have just spent a blissful 3 days at Riad Hayati, possibly the most wonderful Riad in Marrakech. From the moment I first enquired about a room Ron could not have been more helpful. Arriving we couldn't believe how beautiful the Riad (and especially our room) was. During our stay the lovely Abdul spent the entire 3 days smiling and even managed not to laugh when I fell into the pond. And then there's the food. We did a lot of eating on our trip but we both can quite honestly say the best food we ate was in the Riad itself. I will be dreaming of sitting out on the terrace in the balmy sunshine, with storks flying overhead and the mountains in the distance for quite some time, I cant wait to come back.
Thank you for looking after us so well, we really did have such a wonderful time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with the private roof terrace with its own plunge pool - AMAZING!

My partner and I spent the most delightful week here in early September. It was our first trip to Marrakech so we really appreciated Ron's tips on his personal favorites in town. Absolutely spot-on. He has a critical eye to the best restaurant and places to see.
The Riad is just so lovely in a very stylish homey way. We had the four poster bedroom on the gallery with the most seductive bath big enough for two. Perfect for our romantic break in this this exotic.
Our thanks to Mina and Abdel who spoiled us during our entire stay.
The Riad is simply perfect.. Very highly recommended.

#1 - The setting. It looks like a movie set. Beautiful - great attention to detail.
#2 - Ron. How great is this guy? He worked with us to have all of our needs met, and was helpful with great suggestions. Booking and payment were very easy - and he was kind and flexible with us.
#3 - Abdel. How accommodating is this guy? Every time I requested something - or had a question - he was right there, and would say - Don't worry. I will take care of it. Who doesn't love that?
#4 - Mina. She is a great cook! She made me the most delicious veggie dinner - and lamb and chicken for my husband. Probably the best salad I have had in years. And dare I mention the Moroccan Pancake? Delicious.
#5 - The rooftop. We went touring around and to the crazy market and were completely drained. We came home and had a bottle of wine on the rooftop and it was like heaven. It is beautiful and relaxing.

we could have used a couple more nights being pampered by these lovely people.

We actually had our engagement party here five years ago. So as we craved a bit of quiet time together we got Mum to watch the kids and returned to Riad Hayati for four perfect days.

How wonderful. The Riad is like a fine wine that just keeps getting better. Ron has added an annex and created a private suite with its own terrace and tiny pool. The grand salon is something out of a dream and could be a film set. The Riad is an inspiring little sanctuary. Really quite special.

Mina and Abdel, Ron's trusty family staff, are still here as charming and efficient as ever. They just get it. They make it look so effortless and laid back, but the real magic is they simply know what they are doing. Mina's home cooking it still a treat and Abdel can arrange almost anything in record time.

It just doesn't get any more perfect. Except, perhaps, to stay a little longer the next time.

We were in Marrakech for a friend's birthday party and stayed here with several of our friends. A dreamy five days here the first week of September. What an absolutely lovely place with old school charm and service. It's luxurious without being pretentious, classic without being outdated. Personal, well mannered service, discreet and super efficient.

The place values comfort for its guests. The attention to detail is exceptional. Bedrooms are immaculate and cool and the baths are stocked with wonderful amenities. Really comfortable beds. We slept so beautifully each night.

There is a certain ambience about the house. We felt so much at home and relaxed. The staff have that wonderful balance of always ready to please, but never overbearing. The hospitality is warm and generous. Meals are delicious with huge portions. Mina the cook goes to the marketing a couple of hours before each meal
so everything was wonderfully fresh. Her French desserts are devine and Moroccan specialities something to remember. Complimentary tea, homemade biscuits and snacks available all day and aperitifs in the evening.

I can't say enough about this place except that we will be back!

This was our first trip to Marrakech and we didn't quite know what to expect. We chose Riad Hayati from review in Vogue. So glad we did. It was simply a dream holiday.

Abdel met us at the airport and took charge of everything. Within 15 minutes we were walking wide-eyed through the medina which, I have to say, is like going back two centuries. We arrived at a sweet cul-de-sac and as we walked through the simple door we grinned at each other. The courtyard was like a page out of Arabian Nights: Candlelit, soft Arabic music, a trickling fountain and exotic incense wafting through the house. From that point it was perfect bliss. A delicious dinner was waiting for us then drinks on the roof terrace listening to the night sounds of the medina.

We slept beautifully in a wonderfully comfortable bedroom. Next morning we rang for breakfast and found it already laid out on our terrace. Crisp linen tablecloth and napkins, homemade crepes, breads and yogurt, omelettes and French coffee. Perfect start to the day!

We spent seven lovely days choosing between relaxation and action. The sight-seeing was easy as the Bahia quartier is so near the markets, palaces and museums.

I could on with a string of superlatives but let me just say thank you to everyone at the Riad. This is a very special place.

Another wonderful visit to Hayati, our favorite riad in Marrakech. We've been several times previously and always have a beautiful experience. The quiet elegance, combined with the homeliness, makes it our number one.

Mina and Abdel who are both charming and efficient - they continue to do a fantastic job. The riad has total attention to all details. We can recommend this riad without hesitation.
