Marrakech is our passion. We offer five 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 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 hope the warmth of our welcome will be just as memorable for you.
Located next to the Ben Youssef Mosque, Riad Spice offers ten rooms, which can comfortably sleep up to 30 guests in any combination of double or twin beds. The Riad also boasts a dipping pool, roof terrace and elegant, well-proportioned spaces to relax in keeping with the affluence of the previous inhabitants; 17 generations of the same family – traders, farmers and community leaders – resided here until 2008.

It’s the small things that count: our guest smartphone App; orange blossom toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; WiFi; help booking restaurants and excursions.

When required we can equip a whole Riad with single beds (13 at Dar Habiba, 10 at Riad Papillon, 16 at Riad Cinnamon, 30 at Riad Spice or 38 at Riad Star), providing ideal accommodation a yoga group, dance holiday, or girls weekend. The highlight of any group booking will be a banquet in the Riad, featuring delicious food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, whether you dine by the pool or in a Berber tent on the roof terrace. We can even arrange a musician or dancer for your entertainment!
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. Dar simply means house or home in Arabic, but don’t be fooled, the magnificent Dar Habiba is anything but humble!
Marrakech Riad is owned by English couple Lucie and Mike Wood. Riad Papillon, Riad Cinnamon, Riad Star, Riad Spice and Dar Habiba have been meticulously restored, working with traditional materials and craftsmen while incorporating conveniences like iPod docking stations and WiFi. The dedicated Moroccan staff at our Riads in Marrakech speak fluent English as well as French and Arabic. We hope to be able to welcome you to one of our wonderful Riads soon.
