“a great and elegant place in Marrakech entirely renovated”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

if you need some rest in an entirely renovated Art Deco Style Riad , you will fine calm and elegance in " la Villa Makassar" . We have spent there a very nice WE with a very welcoming staff.
Fouad Graidia and his wife have spent a lot of time and energy to achieve their project and the result is admirable . Despite some small imperfections, we have highly appreciated our stay in this magic place.

Room Tip: do not hesitate to choose a suite ..

This villa is fabulously designed and the attention to detail is superb. The Art Deco detailing is consistant throughout the villa from the square bowls in the restaurant to the art deco handles on the bathroom handles.
The rooms are individually furnished. One of the rooms are dark but the others have great lighting. The rooms are very comfortable and the meals prepared by the chef there is out of this world. They even offer cookery courses if you wish.
Even though the villa was almost fully booked, it still feels quiet.

Stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful Art Deco riad. The attention to detail is incredible. The staff are very friendly & helpful. Our dinner was delicious & breakfasts were plentiful with homemade yogurts, breads & pastries plus eggs if you wish. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful space to soak up the sun or stargaze. The hammam & massage were lovely & most welcome after a day in the souks. It is a reasonable walk to the main square, but worth it to stay in such a peaceful place. Only one minor hint - the twin room very compact & bit gloomy.

Just returned from our visit to this amazing riad - it's impeccable and one of my favourite places I've ever stayed! Besides being spotless, the rooms are beautiful and each so different (we were lucky enough to get an upgrade on our last night which was very kind).
You just feel so at home here - there are several rooms downstairs where you can just chill out as well as the pool and the rooftop terrace (we had breakfast up there one morning). The breakfasts are amazing as well!
The staff are all great, especially the manager. One of our bowls we bought from the souk was damaged when moving rooms and he was so kind in replacing it. Thank you!
A great stay and we would definitely return - I urge you to go and have a relaxing stay (our massages were very good as well).

Room Tip: Just be aware the back rooms don't get the wifi but there's a perfect signal downstairs! It...

Its the first time I went to Villa Makassar with my wife. A friend of us told us a lot about this riad.

Indeed, everything was perfect from our arrival till the end.

I loved the tasty food served anywhere and anytime you like.
The riad is very well located closed to the center and very calm area
I will definitely be back !

Villa Makassar is truly one of the best places we have ever stayed. Absolutely Impeccable!
This Riad has been beautifully restored with gorgeous Art Deco items in every room. The staff are superb being helpful and charming and nothing is too much trouble at any time of the day.
The calm of the Riad was wonderful after the dust and noise of the City.
We were made to feel like one of the family, and a very happy family at that.
Thank you all at Villa Makassar for a wonderful five days. We hope to return to you!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful so I would leave it to Souheil ......

My wife and I stayed here on our first trip to Marrakech and what a find.
When you arrive from the airport and climb out of the cab it's a little like entering a parallel universe. This Riad is simply stunning, decorated in original Art Deco pieces and immaculately clean it really is a pleasure to stay here.
Our host Souheil and his staff were extremely helpful and polite without being overbearing and the service given was impeccable.
We ate here on 2 nights and the food was delicious, as was the breakfast each morning.
We were actually upgraded for no additional cost to one of the suites, we thought the normal rooms were nice but the suites really are decadent.
Highly recommended.
