The food was delicious and we enjoyed eating our dinner on the rooftop overlooking to city. The Riad was very peaceful with lots of different areas to sit and relax. Our suite overlooked the main...

I had a few treatments at the Riad - two full body massages and a hammam. The male masseuse was excellent. It is a beautifully calming place to relax before and after a treatment too. The staff are very attentive and make sure you are rehydrated.

This is my second stay at the Riad and it didn't disappoint. It's just as spectacular as I remember. The detail is just stunning. But this time it has a spa!! Perfect for a girls weekend away of shopping, food and luxury! I felt totally spoilt. The breakfast is probably the best breakfast I've had anywhere. The yoghurt is something... More

Staying at Riad Farnatchi is to put yourself in the lap of luxury in the heart of the Marrakech medina. With its peace and quiet and doves cooing you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the high Atlas Mountains, the only thing missing being the view. Unless, that is, you take a delicious breakfast on the terrace and... More

We had an amazing stay at Riad Farnatchi. The Riad is tucked away and is a peaceful oasis set in the heart of the bustling medina. We felt miles away in the Riad while only being 5 minute walk from souks and about 15 minutes’ walk from the main square. The bedrooms were large and comfortable, with huge beds, large... More

This was my second visit to the worldclass Riad Farnatchi but my first since the newly opened Spa came into action and what an addition it is, a calming sanctuary in central Marrakesh, the interior design has been beautifully thought through with incredible attention to detail from the ornate wooden carved ceilings and walls to the soft pastel colours of...

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
