I have just returned from a trip to Marrakesh. Another place ticked off my bucket list. Marrakesh attacks your senses on every level. The heat, the smells, both good and bad, the noise, the traffic, the people and the sheer volume of goods on sale at any one time. It’s crazy! To get the best of Marrakesh, you have to stay in the Medina. It's amasing
As you step through the archway into the first alley, leading to Riad Dar One, the temperature drops by a few degrees. Walking up to the entrance of the Riad the air is pervaded by the beautiful fragrance of cactus flower oil. The Riad Dar One, is a haven in the middle of all this craziness. The decor is a fusion of Moroccan and European and it is quietly elegant. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The Riad is and intimate.
The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive without being intrusive.The splash pool in the centre courtyard is refreshing after a long day in the souks, as well as a good place to meet and chat with other guests.
My son and I also did the cookery course offered by Dar One, which just gives you a touch of Moroccan cooking. Raja the chef, will take you to the spice and fresh produce market to purchase the ingredients and then to a house about 6km out of town to cook. Great fun!
I would highly recommend staying at Dar One in Marrakesh.
