Riad Farnatchi is a small, exquisite, five star property located in the centre of old Marrakech. The ten suites are beautifully appointed and generous in size with their own private outside space, whilst the ground floor is a collection of stunning rooms and living areas opening onto an airy courtyard. On the same time zone as the UK, Marrakech is easily reached for a long weekend with much to occupy two or three full days, within the city and its environs. Our specialists will design a long weekend with activities to suit your style, whether that's exploring the city's art scene, or getting out into the mountains.
The renovation of Riad Farnatchi has been carried out with a finesse unusual even for Marrakech, and the spacious rooms all have private outside space. There is a seven metre swimming pool, Hammam (with a fabulous ILA spa) and a wonderful roof terrace with views over the rooftops to the Koutoubia mosque. Yet for all its beauty, what really sets Farnatchi apart is the highly skilled team running it. Impeccable and friendly service, combined with all the important little touches that show they really know what they are doing. A large number of riad hotels have sprung up in the Medina, but none tops Farnatchi.
