What Makes us different?
What really makes us special, and fantastic value for money, is the small team of dedicated staff in each of our Riads who will be on hand to help, reassure and advise throughout your stay. These perfect little boutique hotels each have seven or fewer guest rooms so we can provide a truly personal service.
It is the small things that count: complimentary toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; Wifi; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions; nothing is too much trouble. We are pleased to offer the loan of a local pay-as-you-go mobile to stay in touch with your English speaking hosts while you are out exploring.

Whether it’s a special occasion, a relaxed family holiday or a last minute get-away with friends exclusive use of a whole Riad is a fantastic way to enjoy Marrakech.

Marrakech or Marrakech? Riads, Riad, Ryad, Riyad , Riyadh, or Dar?
Written in Arabic مراكش foreigners use the French ‘Marrakech‘ and English ‘Marrakesh‘ interchangeably. Riad sometimes written Ryad Riyad or Riyadh literallymeans garden, and describes traditional and wonderfully atmospheric Medina houses that open inward to a garden courtyard lending themselves to sensitive conversion to intimate and individual guest house or hotel accommodation. Dar simply means house or home in arabic, but don’t be fooled, the magnificent Dar Habiba is anything but humble!
English speaking Riads.
Marrakech Riad is owned by English couple Lucie and Mike Wood. Riad Papillon, Riad Cinnamon, Riad Star and Dar Habiba have been painstakingly restored working with traditional materials and craftsmen while incorporating conveniences like ipod docking stations and Wifi.
