Riad Farnatchi truly exceeded expectations on every level! Brilliant service, beautiful rooms and a super location. You must try their new spa which is also wonderful and offers traditional as well as international treatments at the highest level. Very much looking forward to our next visit already!

We visited Marrakech for a few days and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Riad Farnatchi is located close to the main hustle and bustle of the medina but as soon as you walk through the door you could be in the middle of nowhere. It is like a little haven. There are different areas you... More

I've stayed in many places in Marrakech over the years but now I always stay at Riad Farnatchi. It is an absolute gem! It's a spot of tranquility hidden in the heart of the medina. Ideally located from which to explore the city. Otherwise it's a fantastic place to sit back and relax - the spa is simply amazing! The... More

Although we haven't yet stopped there yet, following our visit to the Farnatchi Spa (part of the same complex) I was given a tour of the riad and it's rooms and facilities. What can I say, simply beautiful and the destination of choice for our next visit to Marrakesh. The attention to detail is breathtaking and everything is finished to... More

Truly wonderful. We have been in some wonderful places around the world, but Riad Farmatchi has truly surpassed previous experiences. Through the attention to detail and exquisite taste, combined with a welcome which can only be subscribed as retuning to the family family. The room consisted of three separate spacious all looking out into the patio with orange trees and... More

I stayed at Riad Farnatchi last month for the first time and which will definitely not be my last. I still cannot get over the charm of that place and how everything about it made me feel home. The blissful smile of every member of the staff and their helpful presence and patience, the mixture of warm and bright colors... More

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our visit to RF. It was the perfect retreat after our wedding and superb place to start our tour of Morocco. The location is fantastic and we loved being able to pop out into the hustle and bustle of the medina before escaping to the cool courtyard of RF when we had had... More

We stayed in some lovely luxurious places in Morocco, but this has to be the best. Into a nondescript door down a side street in the medina; the door opens and you are led into one of the most beautiful hotels ever. The riad comprises several houses combined. There are courtyards, a roof terrace, and a dining area we did... More

The whole experience of staying at Riad Farnatchi is perfect for those who want to be in the centre next to the soukes yet within exquisitely peaceful surroundings. We stayed here for 4 nights and the staff were attentive, very helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble to arrange; either taxi's, cooking us amazing dinners, directions, impartial advise, even...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
