The service is very discrete but very efficient and you are left wanting for nothing. The Spa (see separate review) which has been...

Riad Farnatchi truly exceeded expectations on every level! Brilliant service, beautiful rooms and a super location. You must try their new spa which is also wonderful and offers traditional as well as international treatments at the highest level. Very much looking forward to our next visit already!

We visited Marrakech for a few days and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Riad Farnatchi is located close to the main hustle and bustle of the medina but as soon as you walk through the door you could be in the middle of nowhere. It is like a little haven. There are different areas you...

I've stayed in many places in Marrakech over the years but now I always stay at Riad Farnatchi. It is an absolute gem! It's a spot of tranquility hidden in the heart of the medina. Ideally located from which to explore the city. Otherwise it's a fantastic place to sit back and relax - the spa is simply amazing! The...

We stayed in some lovely luxurious places in Morocco, but this has to be the best. Into a nondescript door down a side street in the medina; the door opens and you are led into one of the most beautiful hotels ever. The riad comprises several houses combined. There are courtyards, a roof terrace, and a dining area we did...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house. The 2016 addition of a new Spa with private Hammams and en suite Massage rooms has taken Farnatchi to the level of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel. ... more   less
