Tucked away in the heart of the authentic and lively Marrakech Medina, Riad Medina is a refined, luxurious haven of serenity and harmony, a perfect retreat to relax and indulge in superior surroundings. Riad Medina will enchant and enthral you. The owners bought the riad in 2001 and later, in 2008, they bought two adjoining houses to link the riad to a stunning douiria and a beautiful terrace and swimming pool, unusual in Marrakech. With the talents and mastery of a fantastic architect, the riad preserves the genuine charm and authenticity of a traditional Marrakech building, blending Arab-Andalusian architecture with contemporary, comfortable delights.

The riad is comprised of 4 exquisite junior suites in the main riad, cosy and intimate salons, a traditional hammam and massage room, superb, welcoming roof terraces overlooking the medina and the ravishing douiria with two delightful bedroom suites, private terrace and lounge and the swimming pool and terrace. The riad follows the traditional plan of medina houses with the four suites on the ground and first floors and the sitting room and dining room all arranged around a shaded patio planted with palm trees and boasting a ‘sekaia’, a plunge pool with a fountain.

The atmosphere is idyllic, perfect for a sip of mint tea or an intimate dinner by candlelight. The magical Patio Suite is on the ground floor with a large ottoman bath. The Glaoui ‘honeymoon’ suite is on the first floor with its own staircase as are the Fez and Mogodor Suites which can be interconnecting. The Mogodor Suite boasts an amazing open-air bathroom. Every suite is eye-catching, charming and supremely comfortable.

With the majestic Atlas Mountains on the horizon and the sounds of the vibrant medina and the call of the muezzin at the time of prayer, the roof terrace is absolutely magical. It is the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks. On return from the enchanting souks, you can indulge in some fantastic treatments, enjoy refreshments or find a cosy corner to read or chat.

Sumptuous breakfasts are prepared by the riad’s talented cook Rachida. You can also request delicious lunches and dinners. Tajines, Moroccan pastries, Moroccan spices and delicious caramels can be included. You can enjoy Moroccan, French or vegetarian cuisine within this lovely, intimate setting. Rachida is also happy to offer you a cooking class. The thoughful riad team will ensure you relax and leave Marrakesh refreshed and enlightened with its charms. The Manager and butlers are happy to show you the sites to discover and visit and the best addresses for shopping in the souks or in Gueliz, the modern city.  

The riad’s hammam and massage room are fabulous. You can enjoy the art of soaping perfumed with eucalyptus, a kessa gloved scrubbing and a clay mask of rhassoul, desert clay perfumed with rose water as well as a wonderful range of massage and facial and body treatments. How luxurious and indulgent!

Marrakesh’s heady charms will definitely enchant and dazzle you. The team at Riad Medina are very happy to head you in the right direct to absorb this colourful, amazing city. From the buzzy mazelike passages of the enchanting medina to the modern boulevards of the Gueliz district, you will enjoy museums, galleries, stunning gardens, indie creative spaces and the hustle and bustle of the souks. Delicious, gastronomic feasts are available as well as tasty street food.

The heart of the city is Jemaa el Fna, a vast open space and a stage for snake charmers, musicians, dancers, storytellers, comedians, fairground acts and acrobats. You can enjoy drinks on the rooftop terraces while admiring this colourful scene. The souks are a hive of activity and bartering and are best visited in the early morning or late afternoon. At the northern end of the souks, sits Place de la Kissaria, an open space surrounded by important public buildings. It is dominated by the Ben Youssef Mosque.

Top attractions in Marrakech are The Jardin Majorelle, stunning botanical gardens known for its striking blue paint, Palacio da Bahia, set in a large walled garden and park and Le Jardin Secret which is comprised of two riad gardens that have been joined together.

Many visitors to Marrakesh enjoy trips out of the medina and into the Atlas Mountains. Very popular are 4 by 4 trips into the mountains, stopping off at traditional Berber villages, camel rides in the mountains, 3 valleys trips, argan oil co-operation visits, the stunning Ouzoud Waterfalls, hot air balloon flights, trips to Essaouira on the coast, to Ouarzazate or just to luxury hotel complexes with astounding pool and wellness facilities. Golf trips are also a possibility.

Riad Medina is perfect for a family group wanting to discover Marrakesh and the surrounding areas. Sleeping 12 guests in total, it would also be perfect for two families wanting to travel together. The swimming pool is a delight, bathing in sunshine. Children may also enjoy participating in a cookery class at the riad.

The Riad welcomes children of two or over, it's isn't suitable for toddlers.

Children will be enthralled by the buzzy narrow lanes of the medina and the fun activities of the Jemaa el Fna Square. The snake charmers, acrobats, dancers and other performers are so entertaining. They may also want to be involved in some bartering in the souks! You may want to avoid visiting during Ramadan though as this changes things. There are not many playgrounds in Marrakech but there are some lovely gardens to visit. The Harti Jardin in Gueliz is a lovely park with lots of different paths for a walk. Also, the Cyber Park, close to the Kotoubia mosque is delightful.

There are two small amusement parks, Ludipark and Paloozaland, which are on the edge of the city and are brilliant for young children. Ludipark offers bouncy castles, pony rides, a mini zoo and an aquapark. Paloozaland has a dinosaur theme and various children’s rides, a 6D cinema, live shows and a swimming pool. The team at the villa can organise transport for you to the parks. On the edge of Marrakech you can enjoy go-kart racing at the Moulay Hassan racetrack. It is a fun activity for older children and adults with two different types of kart available. There are several bowling alleys in Marrakech for enjoyment on a day that is either too hot or rainy.

Outside of Marrakech, you can organise a hot air balloon ride so long as the children are aged five and over. This would be an incredible experience. You can also take camel rides in the Palmeraie or Palm Grove. You can easily reach both by taxi or horse-drawn cart from Jamaa el-Fna Square or the area of Majorelle. Forty five minutes from Marrakech is Terres d’Amanar, a brilliant hotel and zipline park. This is a fantastic day out. Children also love visits to the village of Imlil, high in the Atlas Mountains where they can ride a mule and enjoy the waterfalls.

  • Just the most wonderful Riad!

    Posted by Mark Taylor on 13/04/2022

    Just the most wonderful Riad! 11 of us took all the rooms for 3 nights and had the best time. The rooms were all beautiful, well equipped and spacious. The Riad itself is large enough that you don’t feel that you’re all living on top of one another and central enough to walk to all of the attractions in the medina. The staff were fantastic and attentive at all times. Would definitely recommend and we’ll be booking again if and when we return to Marrakesh.
