What an incredible in place, Marrakech is a fantastic city but it is also rather intense. Not that you’d know it from inside the walls of Riad Mur Akush, it was an oasis of calm with a luxiourious feel.
I didn’t actually book this hotel, it was a birthday present from my boyfriend who booked directly with them. His experience throughout though was incredibly positive. He proposed when we got there and everyone in the hotel was more than happy to help him with the organisation.
From beginning to end of our trip we were made to feel completely welcome, nothing was too much trouble. All the staff cultivate a relaxed and friendly vibe and you get a real sense of Arabic hospitality.
As for the food, what can I say, it was incredible! The meal we had on our first night was stunningly delicious – as good as the posh one we had at La Sultana (another must if you’re in Marrakech and fancy a splurge). They catered brilliantly for my vegetarian needs and my boyfriend loved his meaty option too. The breakfasts every morning were fabulous and certainly filling, we generally only needed a snack for lunch. We’ve been trying to find pistachio yoghurt (alas in vain) since we returned home.
The only downside to Riad Mur Akush is the lack of a pool or plunge pool, we did however find a great solution to this problem. The Palais Donab on the Dar El Bacha is a five minute walk away and there is a lovely pool and restaurant. For 150dh you will get access to the pool, towels and a drink or if you are having lunch there then the price is only 120dh. It’s open from 10am to 6pm – perfect if the heat is soaring like it was on our second afternoon.
