Marrakech is a 'romantic' destination in the true sense of the word, it is a contradictory mix of old and new, and of both chaos and calm. After any amount of time walking the streets and the souks there is a need to step away from too many people and into somewhere with the space and quiet to recover.
This Riad is a comfortable walk to the North East away from the main square and souk, and is down what can only be described as a ‘winding back alley’. You have a real sense of living within the city amongst the local community.
This Riad is both luxurious and beautiful, but more importantly the service is impeccable, it feels as if you have the entire house to yourself, with maybe some other houseguests around somewhere. The staff are friendly and discreetly available at all times, nothing is any effort. The highest compliment I can pay this hotel is that after only a few hours it truly felt like a home from home, I had to remind myself to lock the door to the room and not simply to walk about as if at home.
I would recommend this Riad to anyone seeking a romantic destination to get away from everything and to languish in the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Don’t bring the kids and be prepared to walk a reasonable distance (cabs don’t really work well here).
