  • Riad Farnatchi is a small, chic riad with the style and service of a 5 star boutique hotel set in the oldest section of the Medina. The relaxed intimacy provides a sanctuary from the bustle of Marrakech's vibrant markets and allows guests to embrace the relaxed pace. Converted from five riads into one boutique hotel, the Riad Farnatchi is a labyrinth-like twist of hidden nooks and secret refuges where guests socialize among intricately hand crafted furnishings. Minimal decorations highlight the delicate artwork of impossibly elaborate bed headboards and lavish embroideries. Of course, the Medina is right outside for a vibrant slice of Moroccan market life. Guests with an equal measure of spirituality and gumption will be awestruck after a hike up the Atlas Mountains. Or just soak in the Riad's jet streamed pool or receive a massage in the traditional white marble hammam before finishing the day with a soothing shisha on your private terrace. Riad Farnatchi's five beautifully decorated rooms never let you forget you're in Morocco, Berber carpets, hand-forged lamps, and handsomely hand-tiled bedside tables; bathrooms are equally stunning, with marble tubs, yellow granite sinks, and Philippe Stark fixtures. Although rooms are swish, what really makes this place sing are the public spaces, including two courtyards—one with a lap pool, the other with a hamman—and a lushly planted rooftop with views over Marrakech. Every detail of hotel has been considered with guests' comfort in mind, making it one of Marrakech's most refined takes on the private courtyard-house hotel. The polished-marble hammam, handmade beds, glass dining table are the essence of modern style in ancient surroundings. Quite uniquely, almost every piece of furniture has been specially designed and made for Riad Farnatchi in Marrakech. The style reflects a fascinating fusion of traditional Moroccan and modern European design. It is unmistakably Moroccan and exotic whilst being supremely comfortable and practical. Ait Benhaddou - About 30km from Ouarzazate, you will reach the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, a spectacular fortified village with houses piled up around several decorated Kasbahs, all seeming to defy the laws of gravity as they perch on the steep slope. Drive to the ''Red Pearl'' and Imperial City Marrakech - Discover its Mysteries: the Koutoubia minaret, the Saadian Tombs and the Bahia Palace … Enjoy the Medina, Djemaa El Fna square and its snake-charmers, story-tellers, acrobats and will also have free time for shopping in the fascinating souks.
