Just returned from 3 magical nights at this riad. Our third time in Marrakech but the first time at Riad Hikaya - it will not be our last. John (the owner) was continually accommodating during our visit, providing everything from a spare travel adapter, hiring transport for dinner, to arranging for a massage in the riad therapy room (there is also a hammam if required). The rest of the staff team were also very attentive and when my husband left the banana in his fruit salad at our first breakfast, his subsequent fruit salads were banana free!
The decor is exquisite with a new feast for the eyes at every turn, with plenty of space to explore. We stayed in the Hubb room, the bath is as good as it looks in the photos. There is also good quality wi-fi throughout the riad & Sky tv (though we didn't bother with the tv).
The riad location is also great - 15 minutes max from the airport by car, a 15 minute stroll to the main square by foot and less than that to some local stores and decent eateries.
I would highly recommend this riad for decor, tranquility, service, location and I have every intention to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Hikaya is a luxury boutique hotel located in the royal quarter of the medina, called the 'Kasbah', and only an easy walk from the main square, Jemaa al Fnaa, and the city's other famous landmarks. It took three years of meticulous restoration by local craftsmen and artisans, employing both age old techniques and materials, to transform the riad into what it is today. The two roof terraces, planted with orange, lemon, grapefruit and pomegranate trees, offer superb, open views onto the snow capped Atlas mountains. Guests are welcome to eat in our 'Café Des Epices'or on one of our roof terraces to make the most of the view.Included in the room rate:• Moroccan/Continental breakfast• Remote controlled air conditioning and heating for the cooler months• Fresh fruit & mineral water• Fresh flowers• "Sens de Marrakesh" toiletries• Babouche - his and hers• Flat screen tv / satellite channels• Nightly turn down service with rose petals• Ipod docking station• Free wifi internet access ... more less
