Riad Joya is a luxury intimate retreat nestled in the very heart of the Medina of Marrakech in the historical and protected area of the Mouassine, just few steps from the Djemaa el Fna square, the main monuments, the souk and the most exciting attractions of the “red city”.A gem of timeless beauty and sophisticated atmosphere, where discrete luxury fuses with eclectic style.The property reflects the traditional architecture of the riads, built around a small courtyard which is an oasis of tranquility, and features two stylish salons and a panoramic roof terrace.The roof top is the best place to savor a sumptuous breakfast, unwind during the aperitif ritual or surprise the one you love with a romantic dinner under the stars.

One of our best trip ever. Exotic city and lovely weather, we had one of the most memorable experiences staying at the charming Riad Joya. Close the door of the Riad behind you and you are in an oasis of peace. We felt immersed in the local culture and enjoyed spending time with the team that makes the Riad so magic..... Khalid, Noureddine, Echerifa. Chef prepared amazing food for us, all traditional Moroccan dishes, having been other times in Marrakech, we did not want to leave the place. We will be back. Thank you Joya!

Road Joya was our first stop on our Moroccan tour. We were met at the airport by a driver and taken immediately to the entrance to the Médina where we were met by a porter who brought us and our luggage directly to the riad. Pay attention to signs and turns on your way in as it will help navigation later. Nor welcomed us with hot and sugary mint tea and showed us to our spacious and lovely room with an amazing rain shower and working fireplace. Nor greeted us anytime we walked out of our room or anytime we came back to the riad at night. Also, he personally guided us to many destinations in the confusing maze like Médina. The Hammam was absolutely incredible and totally a must do while staying here. Ive never felt so clean and relaxed in my life. We also did a cooking class with chef Ahmed. He took us on a shoppping trip into the souks and helped us pick out our lunch ingredients and also an array of spices to take home with us. The cooking was fun and hands on and another must do at Riad Joya. I highly recommend staying here when you visit Marrakech if you like personalized service, great food, and a true Moroccan experience.

If you're looking for a friendly and authentic accommodation in the heart of the medina but somewhere which feels remote enough from the hustle and bustle of the marketplace, I can't recommend Riad Joya enough. Located just a few passage ways from the souks, the Joya is clean, rooms spacious and staff helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts set you up nicely for the challenges of the market stall holders (!) and be sure to book in an evening meal cooked by Ahmed - superb. Everything seemed not to be a problem and the location excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Joya. Being in the heart of the medina was absolutely amazing and with the help of Noor we felt comfortable and at home. The chef Mohammed was also amazing, coming out of the kitchen every morning to make sure we were happy with the food selection. The Riad also has an extensive network of tour guides which can be organised at short notice to show you different parts of Marrakech. After spending 4 nights there we did not want to leave!

We’re so grateful to Nor and the staff at Riad Joya for a magical experience on our first visit to Marrakech. The riad is nestled in a quiet corner within the Medina, so you have the best of both worlds. The staff makes you feel like it’s your home away from home. Whatever we asked for, they found a way to make it happen. And definitely take them up on their offer to provide a guide. Ours was incredible and made Marrakech come alive. We can’t wait to come back.
