As you meander through the vibrant Medina, leave the crowds behind and delve into the calm and tranquillity of this beautiful Riad, a former fortress recently renovated to a luxurious standard, showcasing a perfect blend of traditional Moorish and Oriental architecture with exquisite decorative touches. Just five minutes’ walk from Jemaâ El Fna Square you’ll be within easy reach of the hustle and bustle but feel totally relaxed in this elegant hideaway.

The Babylonian Dream is a romantic haven. With its deep magenta hue and detailed tiled floor, you’ll immediately be drawn to your intimate surroundings. Traditional Moroccan furniture and beautiful antique ornaments fill the room with character, complimented by beautiful silk furnishings strewn on the alluring double bed, illuminated by soft light emanating from jewel-coloured Syrian hanging lamps. Three windows overlook the rose fountain courtyard below, where palm trees wrapped in lavish bougainvillaea dot the patio area and an exotic plunge pool awaits. The adjoining en-suite is an opulent delight, where you can enjoy an indulgent rose petal-filled, Grecian-columned bath, before falling blissfully into bed.

The Riad offers many wonderful experiences within its walls, and creating an authentic stay is an essential part of their ethos. For the romantics amongst you, we suggest you book a delicious candlelit three-course dinner on the spectacular rooftop terrace, where you’ll be hypnotised by the distant call to prayer of the muezzin and enjoy the breath-taking view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, the Koutoubia Mosque and the city beyond. Or perhaps you and your partner would enjoy a fabulous massage in the privacy of your own room.  For the culinary enthusiast, join their talented cook on a wonderful local shopping trip to buy fresh seasonal ingredients, before returning to create your own Moroccan feast. And for those looking for something a little different why not try a belly dancing lesson! When you do decide to leave your glorious surroundings, excursions further afield can also be organised for you, from visiting the outstanding Ouzoud Waterfalls to Dune-Buggying in the Desert. So however you like to enjoy your holiday, your every whim will be catered for in this wonderful Riad.

Situated down a quiet street in the bustling Medina of Marrakesh, a heavy cedar-wood door opens into a tranquil oasis. Just five minutes from Jemaâ El Fna Square, you will be ideally situated close to its intoxicating excitement as well as the labyrinth of bright colours and oriental scents of the Medina yet feel truly at home in your own little paradise once inside.

A heady fusion of colour and noise, the infamous souks pack stall after stall offering exotic goods from towering brightly coloured spices to richly woven rugs, where hordes of people barter for the best prices. Duck into one of the beautiful Riads in the medina for some respite from the sun. Enjoy afternoon mint tea at world-famous La Mamounia with its beautiful gardens adorned with orange groves and olive trees. Or head to the architectural splendour that is Bahia Palace, with its fascinating museum and enchanting gardens.

For an unforgettable spectacle Jemaâ El Fna, the busiest square in the whole of Africa, is a must-see. Gnawa musicians, belly dancers, and fire-eaters entertain while mystic snake charmers and enigmatic storytellers entrance their crowd, truly a sight to behold. Indulge in exotic barbequed delicacies on long trestle tables as you soak up the atmosphere before taking a horse-drawn carriage to explore the rest of the medina.

For a more serene activity, relax in one of the many hammams in the city, a traditional spa where you’ll emerge glowing after a thoroughly luxuriant experience. Or perhaps enjoy a round or two of golf on one of the many elegantly designed courses here. And for the ultimate romantic gesture why not take a bottle of champagne and watch the glorious sunset over Marrakech floating in a hot-air balloon.

To escape the hustle and bustle of the city there are plenty of excursions that make for a fantastic day out. Take a quad bike tour through the exotic palm groves, or for the more adventurous become Bedouins and trek across the stunning Sahara by camel, with a crew of Berber guides. Sporting enthusiasts will love to hike across the spectacular Atlas Mountains, crossing valleys on impressive suspension bridges, even skiing down runs in the Winter months. Whatever your itinerary, this enchanting city boasts something for everyone, whether it be a fun-packed family holiday or a romantic getaway, a truly memorable experience is ensured.

The room boasts a double bed and an option for a cot. There are four other suites in close proximity available to book within the Riad for children who can sleep separately from you.

Cooking classes are a great family activity organised within the Riad, taking you out to the local markets to source the ingredients before cooking and enjoying the fruits of your labour back at the Riad.

The Riad is located within the heart of Marrakech’s Medina, just 5 minutes’ walk from Jemaâ El Fna Square, teaming with street entertainers including fire-eaters, bellydancers, acrobats, astrologers and so many more spectacles that kids will love. Head here in the day for a less intense experience.

Excursions can be organised to some fantastic areas outside Marrakesh, from magical Lake LallaTakerkoust where all kinds of water sports can be enjoyed, including jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking. To the Atlas Mountains, where you can hike across hills, cross valleys on suspension bridges or speed down ski runs from the snowy peaks.

There is an eco-friendly nature reserve next to Toubkal National Park that has the biggest rope adventure park in Africa. The zip-lines, ropes courses and aerial bridges are the ideal playground for big and little kids alike.

The small amusement park of Palooza Land is a great day out, and also has a swimming area. It is situated on the edge of Marrakech near the Marjane on the route to Casablanca.

Take a Horse and Cart Ride Around the City, kids will love the traditional experience.
