After a hectic day spent navigating the souks and the clatter of snake charmers, storytellers and food stalls of Djemaa al Fna, stepping through the doorway of Riad ZamZam feels like a magical journey to a land of luxury and calm. There is the pool, scattered with rose petals, soft music playing and the welcoming staff offering a cool drink in the courtyard or on the roof terrace.
The riad has been beautifully decorated by owners Emma and Marcus with understated elegance - except maybe those tassels - which are not understated but smashing (and Emma helped us track down the tassel man so we could have some of our own)
We had a hands-on cooking class that included a visit to the local markets and a delicious meal. I can hardly wait to preserve some lemons and try these at home!
ZamZam is in a remote area of the medina, but they do a marvelous job at organizing drivers and escorting guests to and from the cars after dark.
Four nights was not enough - next time I'm staying a week!
