We chose the Farnachi as I liked the look of the rooms, especially the room with the sunken bath. When i emailed to book they said they would be happy to reserve that room,.The Riad's private car collected us from Marrakech airport, where inside the car was a bottle of cold water and frozen towels to refresh us.
When the large wooden doors open you walk into the Raid which is like an oasis....it is simple stunning. We were very lucky in that there were no other guests staying at the Riad, so we have the whole place to our selfs. The owner James showed us around and indeed if we wanted we could chose which ever room we wanted. We chose the room with the sunken bath and private balcony.
Throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble, we were treated like royalty. We could have breakfast whereever we liked within the Riad......we choose to have ours on our balcony every morning, fresh fruit, yoghurt, breads, pancakes and poached eggs
Every evening around 5pm they brought us a plate of canapes......we ordered wine and beers to our room and was really expecting a large bill at the end, but we were very surpised that it was very reasonable!
The inner courtyard has pool, whilst it is small it is fitted with a jet to enable you to swim against. Although we just enjoyed dipping in to cool down whilst enjoying a book and the best mint tea i have ever tasted!
We wanted a day up the mountains which James organised for us in the Riad's car, which was stocked with water, fruit and frozen towels for the journey. They also recommended us lunch at Richard Branson's retreat, which was although pricey,.....well worth the views! When we arrived back at the Riad we were greeted with a glass of mint tea and frozen towels to refresh
I cannot recommend this hotel enough.......if you like beautiful things, made to feel special and attention to detail....dont stay anywhere else, chose Riad Farnachi
- 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.
