I stayed at Riad Farnatchi last month for the first time and which will definitely not be my last. I still cannot get over the charm of that place and how everything about it made me feel home.

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our visit to RF. It was the perfect retreat after our wedding and superb place to start our tour of Morocco.

We stayed in some lovely luxurious places in Morocco, but this has to be the best. Into a nondescript door down a side street in the medina; the door opens and you are led into one of the most beautiful hotels ever. The riad comprises several houses combined. There are courtyards, a roof terrace, and a dining area we did... More

I had a few treatments at the Riad - two full body massages and a hammam. The male masseuse was excellent. It is a beautifully calming place to relax before and after a treatment too. The staff are very attentive and make sure you are rehydrated.

Staying at Riad Farnatchi is to put yourself in the lap of luxury in the heart of the Marrakech medina. With its peace and quiet and doves cooing you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the high Atlas Mountains, the only thing missing being the view.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
