Riad Farnatchi, a luxury riad in Marrakech
With a vibrant culture, centuries of history and some of the best shopping on the planet it's no surprise that Marrakech is high on many traveler's wish lists. To fully experience Marrakech a stay at a riad ( atraditional Morrocan home built around a courtyard) in the Medina is in order and one of the best stays in the Red City can be found at Riad Farnatchi. Passing through the doors of the 300 year old renovated riad the frenetic energy of the medina was traded for the tranquilty of Riad Farnatchi's peaceful courtyard. Each of the riad's 10 unique suites feature handcrafted Moroccan decor that are both timeless and modern. Service at Riad Farnatchi is unparalleled; from arranging guides to explore the Medina to reservations for a hammam experience at Farnatchi Spa or dinner at their new restaurant Le Trou au Mur the staff excel at making Riad Farnatchi feel like home.
