Our experience with the Riad Mur Akush from the moment we booked from our house in the UK to the moment we left was exceptional. Maria, the owner, is so friendly, approachable and helpful that we immediately knew this was the place we wanted to stay. I can only describe the first moment we arrived there as a magical experience.
We arrived at sunset as the medina was just waking up for the evening activities, wheeled our suitcases down an ancient allyway to a small door, through which we were welcomed in to what i can only describe as a beautiful little palace, an oasis of calm filled only with the sound of the beautiful bubbling morrican tiled water feature and the sweet aromatic smells of incense and mint tea.
Maria upgraded us to the Grand Suite Amel after discovering that we were celebrating my birthday, and the staff were extremely helpful with maps, tips and advice for our stay.
The breakfast was authentic, fresh, delicious and generous every morning and we also opted one evening for a private dinner on the rooftop terrace, which again was exceptional, made even more magical as we watched the sunset and listened to the sounds if the evening prayer calls echo throughout out the city from the various mosques.
The Riad does not serve alcohol, as most Riads do not, however they do not object to you bringing your own and there are supermarkets in the city where you can buy wine or beer etc.
Marrakech s a wonderful city to visit, the hustle and bustle of the souks is exciting but combined with the heat of the african sun the days can be tiring. So, theres nowhere better way to begin and end each day of your stay there in your own mini oasis at Riad Mr Akush.
