The Suite Life Of a Marrakech Riad: What To Expect Upon Entry
A Riad in Marrakech rarely resembles another. Every one has its own unique “imprint”, especially when it comes to its design and aesthetics. The same is true with Riad Farnatchi. What can you expect to see if you choose Riad Farnatchi as your home during your Marrakech trip?
The Appeal Of Our Marrakech Riad
Riad Farnatchi features two candle-lit dining rooms, with a seating capacity of 24 people, two sitting rooms and two sitting b’hous. Intricate plasterwork can be seen throughout the riad and will appeal to guests looking for beautiful Moroccan design. Our beautiful rooftop gardens are some of the greenest in the city with stunning views over the ancient Marrakech median, sun loungers and rooftop dining available all day.
Riad Farnatchi lends itself to private house parties and individual guests alike with its large open courtyards, airy sitting rooms and open fireplaces for the winter. A small pool is available for taking a cooling dip in the summer months. With the recent addition of a beautiful, fully equipped spa with hammam, massage and manicure facilities, Riad Farnatchi is really a boutique 5-star hotel within the walls of a 400-year-old house.
Although you will fall for the curb appeal of our riad, it is the interior that will captivate you most. Riad Farnatchi was built to incorporate traditional Arabesque design mixed with international style and comfort.
Suite One is the entire ground floor of one of the original eight houses that forms Riad Farnatchi. The bedroom is in the original courtyard with a beautiful metal and glass roof above the bed and a sunken bath in front of the open fire.
Suite Two is a duplex suite allows for plenty of natural light to fill the space thanks to its large roof light.
Suite Three features a separate bedroom and living room along with a beautiful bathroom. However, the standout feature of this room is the large private balcony overlooking the pool which will give you a sense of truly luxurious living.
Our fourth suite is full of natural light and space. It has a beautiful hand-carved chimney and a private sun terrace.
Suite Five includes is a large open-concept room with a backlit bedhead, handmade from forged iron. It also features a private balcony perfect for breakfast or a private dinner, overlooking a beautiful decorative courtyard.
Suite Six is another duplex, which overlooks the pool from its living room and onto a large private sun terrace from its bedroom. This is one of our larger suites and is one of the few suites where we can add an extra bed for a third guest.
Our seventh suite is dedicated to those who crave a romantic atmosphere. It comes with a beautiful fireplace and has panoramic views from a private sun terrace.
Suite Eight’s bedroom is raised and looks over a private courtyard with an olive tree which fills the room with natural light. The separate sitting room is uncomfortable and has a mirror and carved metal chimney above the open fireplace. Suite Eight also has a private balcony overlooking the pool.
Our ninth suite is designed as a mini riad and is our largest suite covering over 75 square meters. It has its own private courtyard with a double daybed and fountain which is flanked by the bedroom on one side and a spacious sitting room on the other.
Last but not least is Suite Ten, our newest addition. It can serve as either a twin or double room with a design that is modern and light. It’s great for both its intimacy and accessibility, with its own private roof terrace and direct access to the spa.
