Down a quiet street in the bustling Medina of Marrakesh, a large cedar door awaits. Once inside you will be welcomed into a beautiful Riad, a former fortress recently renovated to exquisite standards. With a stunning mix of Moorish and Oriental architecture and European romanticism, you will love this welcoming space. Just five minutes from the thrilling spectacle that is Jemaâ El Fna Square and the colourful meandering lanes of the Medina, you will be ideally placed to enjoy the hustle and bustle yet able to retreat to the peaceful surroundings of the Riad in no time.  

The Sand Blush is one of five individually designed rooms here. As its name suggests, its alluring hue is inspired by the damask colours of the desert, a perfect tranquil sanctuary of calm within desert-ochre walls. The room is filled with an eclectic mix of antique pieces sourced by the owner from around the world and beautiful handmade pieces created by local Moroccan craftsmen, all illuminated in lovely soft lighting emanating from beautiful Syrian hanging lamps. The luxurious double bed, which can be converted to twin beds if needs be, is strewn with elegant silk furnishings, making it almost impossible to resist its allure. It also benefits from a glorious en-suite bathroom boasting a decedent copper bath perfect for filling with rose petals for the ultimate indulgence, and walls lavished with polished tadelakt.

The Riad provides many fabulous spaces in which to relax. The elegant courtyard is an idyllic space in which to enjoy your morning pot of mint tea, where a heady scent of Jasmin fills the air, surrounded by glorious palms wrapped in bougainvillaea and featuring a rose-filled fountain and lovely plunge pool. There is also a wonderful roof terrace filled with sumptuous seating offering spectacular views over the city and Atlas Mountains beyond; the perfect spot to enjoy a candlelit three-course meal.

For those that want to experience that little bit extra, the Riad has a slick team of people ready to look after your every whim. From providing chauffeurs, masseurs, beauty technicians, personal shoppers and chefs to organising excursions outside the city.

***This room is one of five within a luxurious Riad in Marrakesh. For larger groups, the other bedrooms in Riad can be booked to accommodate larger groups. Please follow the links to for the four other rooms: Babylonian Dream, Emerald Reverie, Aquamarine Wings & Royal Suite or you can make an enquiry to book the whole Riad

Just five minutes from the vibrancy of Jemaâ El Fna Square, Sand Blush Suite resides in a beautifully renovated Riad down a quiet side street of the vibrant Medina. A former fortress, its thick walls protect you from any noise that might emanate from the surrounding hustle and bustle, creating a calm oasis behind beautiful cedar doors.

At the foot of the majestic Atlas Mountains, the unique and spiritual city of Marrakesh boasts huge historical significance, having stood for almost a thousand years, from exquisite gardens to intricately carved archways to the ornate mosques. You’ll love the intoxication of jasmine and orange blossom that excite the senses as you walk through the city. Passing horse-drawn carriages and stall after stall of exotic goods in the wonderful Medina, where you’ll see traditional arts being expertly showcased, from tanners working on their fabulous wares, filling the air with the scent of hides tanning in the Moroccan sun, to the ironmongery of precious metals into beautiful pieces. Make sure you are ready to haggle!

For an authentic spectacular head to Jemaâ El Fna, the busiest square in the whole of Africa. Gnawa musicians, belly dancers, and fire-eaters entertain while mystic snake charmers and enigmatic storytellers entrance their crowd. Enjoy exotic barbequed delicacies on long trestle tables as you soak up the atmosphere before heading deep into the souks to pick up your very own piece of Morocco. Or perhaps take a romantic horse and carriage ride to explore the area. 

To escape the intensity of the medina, the perfect tonic will be to delve into one of the many spectacular gardens in the city. Le Jardin Secret is one of the Medina’s largest and most important, set out in the shell of a 19th-century palace. Or head outside the Medina to experience luxurious oriental indulgence at Palais Rhoul where Corinthian columns surround a beautiful pool and set beneath a literal waterfall of wisteria. Be sure to visit the architectural splendour that is Bahia Palace while you are here, a nineteenth-century palace of eight hectares, with its fascinating museum and enchanting gardens.

For those hoping to spoil yourselves, get pampered in one of the many hammams in the city, a traditional spa where you’ll emerge glowing after a thoroughly luxuriant experience. Or perhaps relax into a round of golf on one of the many beautifully designed courses here. And for the ultimate romantic gesture, why not take a balloon ride over the city either at dawn or sunset to enjoy the spectacular colours over this enchanting city.

The thrill of this beautiful part of the world doesn’t stop in Marrakesh. From your Riad, you are ideally located to enjoy one of the many activities in the surrounding area. From hiking trips to the breath-taking Ouzoud Falls, to the more adventurous camel trek across the Sahara with Berber guides. In the Winter you can even try your hand at skiing at 10,500 feet in the Oukaïmeden area of the Atlas Mountains.  However you like to spend your holiday, there really is something for everyone in and around wonderful Marrakesh.

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, from here take a horse and carriage ride or even donkey and cart!

Excursions can be organised to some fantastic areas outside Marrakesh, from beautiful Lake LallaTakerkoust where all kinds of water sports can be enjoyed, to hiking the Atlas Mountains and even skiing there in the Winter months.

Go kart racing is a great activity for big and little kids alike. The Moulay Hassan racetrack is on the edge of Marrakech on the route to Ourika. If you have older kids that are confident on bicycles why not rent a bike and explore the city. There are stations around the city that have bikes available for hire.

Chez Ali is a fantasia show that includes dinner. See a traditional performance with horse riders, music and full Moroccan buffet.
