Riad Farnatchi, Marrakesh, Morocco
The location of the Riad Farnatchi is one of its greatest assets, hidden away in the very heart of the oldest part of the Medina, which is full of local colour and character. The decor is a mixture of traditional Moroccan and modern European design and the focus is as much on comfort as style and quality. The rooms all have a spacious sitting area, adjustable lighting and almost every piece of furniture has been specially designed and made in Marrakesh. The bathrooms have marble baths and power showers, and the 7m emerald-tiled pool has a jet stream and is heated in the winter months. The white marble hammam is the perfect place to relax and all food is made at the Riad by a Berber cook. This intimate Riad with only 5 suites offers a personal and romantic setting.
