Photo of Riad Farnatchi

“An elegant luxury riad right in the heart of Marrakech. The chic airy suites feel spoiling and romantic, with private balconies, Egyptian cotton sheets and handmade furnishings. Traditional white marble hammam is an ideal way to unwind after a day in the Souks. A really exquisite and intimate spot.”

Hotel Review

Hotelier Johnathan Wix spent two years transforming his home into a nine-suite baby hotel. He personally hammered the pictures on the wall, imported Philippe Starck bathroom fittings and duck feather pillows and commissioned furniture to be manufactured locally. The result is crisp and comfortable, with the added boon of 24-hour room service and knock-out massages.
