The amazing Riad Cinnamon has a secret roof that can cover the courtyard for shade in summer or in case of rain showers. This facility makes it an especially great choice for a wedding or any event where use of the courtyard is essential (yoga groups, dance holidays etc).
Guests enjoy a wealth of facilities including a comfortable lounge, a generous patio and dipping pool with plenty of room to relax or use the fast free Wifi. The roof terrace is perfect for al fresco dining and enjoys one of the most beautiful views in Marrakech with a stunning vista across the rooftops of the old town set against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. There is even a second (small) dipping pool on the terrace.
All suites benefit from en suite shower rooms, air conditioning, ipod docking station, personal safe, hairdryer, minifridge, complimentary toiletries, luxury towels and robes, satellite tv and other conveniences. Best of all are the comfortable beds and seriously fantastic bedding (Lucie gets ‘fan mail’ about the luxury bedding at Riad Cinnamon) sheets and pillow cases are minimum 300 count egyptian cotton and the duvets are incredibly light weight silk making them warm in winter and cool in summer.
Our predecessors in Riad Cinnamon, the El Korchi family lived in the house for nearly sixty years. For most of that time they were the best bakers in Marrakech specialising in a sweet cake called Spekia used in festivals and celebrations. The Riad was often used for weddings before its conversion as a riad hotel. Marrakech tradition was that impressive venues such as this were offered by the homeowner as a gift to the couple and as an act of charity to the community.
The rooms are wonderfully proportioned with twelve foot high ceilings which are practical as well as impressive since the natural circulation of air cools them in the heat. Todays luxury guest accommodation combines the craftsmanship of some of the best workers in Morocco with outstanding modern design. Don’t delay making your reservation!
