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.

Full day sightseeing – Set out to discover the secrets of Marrakech, the most famous city in Morocco. Most of the city’s architectural attractions are inside the Medina, the old walled section of the town. Built in the 12th century, the Koutoubia minaret is the most perfect Islamic religious structure in North Africa. This famous landmark dominates the local skyline and can easily be spotted from all of Marrakech. Another jewel of Marrakech is the Koranic school that was built around 1570; the Medrasa Ben Youssef is the biggest medersa in the whole of the Maghreb. Hidden away behind high walls are the Saadian Tombs. The Mausoleum displays a very high level of decoration, using traditional stucco and Granada-style carving, typical of classical Moroccan buildings. The Bahia Palace is a masterpiece of domestic architecture which gives a good idea of how the privileged lived in the 19th century in the Imperial city. The use of marble, stucco and mosaics predominates in the apartments, opening on to courtyards filled with fountains and plant life. Dar Si Said is one of the most beautiful palaces, now home to the museum of Moroccan Arts and Crafts. Inside are stunning collections of traditional woven carpets and Berber silver jewelry.
Half day sightseeing – You will enjoy the gardens of Marrakech, starting by the Menara gardens that were built in the 12 century and surrounded by orchards and olive groves. The intention of the basin was to irrigate the surrounding gardens and orchards using a sophisticated system called Qanat. The basin is supplied with water thanks to an old hydraulic system which conveys water from the mountains located at 30 km approximately away from Marrakech. Continue to discover the Majorelle gardens, created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in 1924 and later opened to the public in 1947. They were later purchased by designer Yves Saint Laurent who established a trust to protect the future existence of the garden. He founded a small Islamic art museum located on the premises in a bright blue house, which was once the painting studio of Majorelle. These peaceful garden settings offer a variety of exotic plants such as bamboo, cacti, bougainvillea and palms. Streams and fish filled pools also flow through the gardens.
