The fabulous five-star Riad Farnatchi is a luxurious, yet laid-back and charming riad in the heart of Marrakech’s medina. Its interior is of the highest quality, designed professionally to retain all the intricate traditional features of a Moroccan riad along with contemporary touches, making it the ideal choice for a special occasion. To get here it’s just a short transfer from the airport, 30 minutes away by car.
There are nine luxury suites in the riad in total, all decorated with traditional Moroccan riad style in mind, so blending neutral palates with bright pops of colour alongside detailed fretwork in covings and ornate fixtures. They are also furnished with hand-made beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, air conditioning, central heating, satellite TV, Bose iPod docking stations, on-demand movies and CD players.
After a day haggling for handicrafts in the souks, the Riad Farnatchi’s amazing lounge or roof terrace make irresistible places to sit and relax, away from the craziness of the medina. Back in Marrakech, once you’ve recharged, there’s plenty to do away from the old town, such as the stunning Jardin Majorelle, fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent’s former home and gardens, in the new town.
All meals are catered for at the riad, depending on what you want – with Moroccan and international dishes served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The riad with its various dining rooms, is also fully equipped to cater for group dinners, as well as private events. Barbecue nights are also held regularly on the roof terrace.
