The Farnatchi is beyond praise. We stayed for three days, at the end of a 12-day trip to Morocco, and this beautiful riad ended our vacation on a very high note. When we asked for something, it was never too much trouble. The pool was almost too beautiful to swim in, and the tile, plaster, and wood work were museum...

This is a fantastic place. They are organized to deliver service that exceeds every expectation. It is rare to find any place where they clearly are actively trying to think how they can exceed every desire by something exceptional. I stayed for 3 nights in suite #4. This is a spacious room, with a balcony to one central courtyard and...

My husband and I travelled with two teenage girls to Marrakech and had the good fortune of staying at the Riad Farnatchi. We credit the Riad owner (James W) and his staff for making our first visit to Marrakech special and unique. In this day of chain hotels and conglomerates, we are finding exotic travel experiences to be difficult to...

I should have written earlier regarding my stay at Riad Farnatchi. I have not reviewed an hotel before - probably through simple inertia - but having recommended (actually insisted) that any friend who would listen should stay at Riad Farnatchi, I was astonished to hear from one of them, who had just looked it up on Trip Advisor, that someone...

After staying at 3 different riads during our Morocco trip, I will say that Farnatchi was by far the most glam and luxurious. That being said, it was also the most expensive, so it came at a price! The location is perfect, very close to Ben Yousef, a short walk to chill and nice shopping, and lots of other nice...

I was delighted to read your comments regarding the quality of our rooms, our dinners and our very special location. I was, however, mortified to read your thoughts about the service you received and the breakfast that you were served. As you will recall, I greeted you myself and, as is our custom, spent some time discussing your plans for...

Riad Farnatchi is by far one of the best places I have ever stayed. As soon as we stepped through the door, owner James Wix and all the charming staff made us feel right at home. The service was attentive but not overwhelming, our bedroom was spacious (well palatial) and sympathetically decorated with beautiful Moroccan accents and the bathroom was...

We’ve just returned from a fabulous 5 days holiday at Riad Farnatchi in Marrakech. The accommodation, food and service were so outstanding that we feel compelled to write. Our suite exceeded all our expectations (and we are a well-travelled couple).

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
