We offer three Riad hotels in the old town medina, each with its own distinctive personality. What really makes us special, and fantastic value for money, is our small team of dedicated staff who will be on hand to help, reassure and advise you throughout your stay. These charming boutique hotels each have thirteen or fewer guest rooms so you can expect a truly personal service.

We love Moroccan food! and we enjoyed hosting celebrity guests Gordon Gino and Fred on their recent Moroccan Road Trip, when Chef Ramsay cooked a celebration meal in our cookery school kitchen. We are especially proud of our newly opened World Storytelling Cafe a vibrant arts venue serving a plant based menu featuring many local specialities which visitors seldom have the opportunity to try.

Our riads are perfect for exclusive use retreats and getaways including Lucie’s own White Owl wellness retreats.

Marrakech or Marrakesh? 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) literally means garden, and describes traditional and wonderfully atmospheric Medina houses that open inward to a garden courtyard. Our Riad courtyards are cool and calm in the heart of the energetic Red City.
