Arriving in the souks is a culture shock, a good one! Travelling into the Atlas Mountains is a refreshing experience, quad biking in the desert is an adventure, and all the rest, but to be honest, none of these activities would mean so much if it wasn't for the amazingly different experience of staying at the Riad Farnatchi.
Forget five star hotels and all that lovely stuff...this was different...
Well, it is authentic Morocco, draped and cosseted and just full of local character, comfort, and a sense of peace, an oasis in the maelstrom of Marrakech.
It is more like being a guest at a private home, with service always on hand, nothing too much trouble, a male masseur who is properly world class, a hamman to die for, delicious food in a beautifully hand decorated cosy intimate dining room, breakfast on the roof garden overlooking the roofs and out to the Mountains, listening to the mosques calling their flock in for prayers, birds chattering, orange trees, peace and such a restoration from the daily trials of living in UK.
Would I go back and stay there...yes, yes yes, very special...does anybody gives six or seven stars!
- 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
