Riad Ilayka is a beautiful riad, located within walking distance from the Djema el Fna. Each of the rooms has been lovingly decorated in its own unique style. As well as the bright courtyard, there is a charming first-floor terrace where you are welcome to enjoy breakfast. On the roof terrace, you can soak in the relaxing hot tub. Alternatively, enjoy a refreshing mint tea in the cushioned turret area, whilst taking in the Marrakesh skyline
Each of the guest rooms are uniquely decorated and feature deep, rich tones. All the rooms are beautiful, but the upper level rooms offer a little more privacy and quiet. All rooms have an en suite bathroom, and a few of the rooms have a seating or lounge area as well. A few of the rooms are also accessible via private staircase, creating a sense of exclusivity and privacy.
Riad Ilayka is situated in an ideal location, just a 10 minute walk from the main square. It is in the medina, but the property will send a guide to walk guests from the car park to the riad.
Food and Drink
Riad Ilayka offers full complimentary breakfast featuring Moroccan breads, pastries, fruits, and jams. Lunch and dinner are also served, and can be taken either in the courtyard or on the rooftop terrace. The food is traditional Moroccan cuisine, and always receives rave reviews from guests.
The property has two rooms on the first floor ideal for anybody with accessibility issues, as the upper level rooms can only be accessed by stairs.
Whilst the surrounding alleys which lead to this riad are busy and popular with the locals, the riad itself provides a quiet haven away from the hustle and bustle. Its location is ideal for gaining your bearings in relation to the main square.
