We had a great experience at Riad Shambala. Quiet, charming, nice and clean is how I would describe Shambala. Very close to the Zouk and the El Fna Square, you feel like at home when you get back to the Riad.
The service was great and very familiar, they arranged anything we wanted to do, such as dinner reservations or calesa ride through the Medina, without the barging that you have to do outside if you want to do any of this things.
Last night was very special, we had a very good local dinner with a bottle of Spanish red wine by the fire place, what else can you ask for?
We are already planning our next visit to Marrakech, of course, at Riad Shambala.

El Riad esta muy cerca del zoco y dentro de la medina. De recientes reformas en su interior realizadas con mucho gusto y cariño. Es fantástico para descansar después de todo el día conociendo (y comprando) por Marrakech donde puedes disfrutar de una cerveza en su terraza o un buen vino junto a la chimenea según la época del año. El servicio es muy hospitalario y preocupado por tu bien estar y la cocina es casera, sabrosa y tradicional. Además estaba todo muy limpio.

No se cuando volveremos, pero seguro que volveremos al Riad Shambala

Staying at Riad Shambala has been one of the most unique experiences I have ever had.

The hotel has a special charm that can only be appreciated by staying there.

In contrast to the mad life outside in the medina which is always so crowded, when we came back to Shambala it seemed like entering paradise. The peace inside, the nice lounges and rooms, the cool swimming pool were all very relaxing and made you forget the madness outside. Also do not miss out the typical Moroccan breakfast in Shambala, where again all the details in the Riad and the service were outstanding!

Mohamed, manager at Riad Shambala treated us so well, that it definetly made choosing Shambala worthwile an entirely a different trip experience. Furthermore he gave us all the inside tips about the best local restaurants to go to, as well as doing all the bookings for us, as well us the places to see and how and where to buy what we were looking for, and even a recommendation of the best massage & hammam places in the city .

Room Tip: If possible go for the suites! I really liked A Chamm though all are very nice

This beautiful RIAD is located within the walls of Marrakech Medina or, as it is also known, the ancient part of the city.Inaugurated in September 2011, the hotel represents the realisation of Carlos, its owner´s, dream."Carlos' Dream" as it is known (which is inscripited in Arabic on the door of the Riad) brings to life his artistic interpretation and vision of a traditional Moroccan Riad.Every single detail, from the construction, the location, style & furnishings of the Riad are recreated in the classical & traditional manner which is typically Moroccan and one that the locals would recognise and admire as a typical Moroccan RiadThis vision enables the guests to engage themselves and appreciate the beauty and passion of this beautiful city with surroundings that bring to life of an era long forgotten but brought to life by the traditional settings of the Riad.During the Riad's construction only traditional Moroccan materials were used, such as Tadelakt plaster (concrete hand polished stone), Bejmat (baked clay), all of which was hand produced individually using traditional tools producing a complete piece of artisan work.Relax and enjoy drinking cocktail's or mint tea in its lounges or by the swimming-pool; far away from the hustle and bustle of the streets in the heart of Marrakech Medina, with the backdrop of the magnificient snowed Atlas mountains, or watch a beautiful sunset over the city at the end of the day, the choice is entirely yours.Do not miss the romantic experience of arriving at night at the Riad and going up to your room with a traditional candle lighting the way, whilst in the morning awake to a wonderful breakfast which can be taken in any of the Riad's charming locations or terraces.If you wish so, book your evening dinner at the Riad, you will certainly not forget the experience of tasting wonderful original Moroccan food on the patio or one of the many terraces, all set in a complete relaxed atmosphere enabling you to forget about the worries of the world. ... more   less
