Riad Farnatchi has been created out of five small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech. Moroccan houses (Riads) have stood on the site for many centuries and some of our walls go back over 400 years.
The riad is located just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the world-famous Jemaâ el Fna square with its storytellers, street acts, and famous snake charmers.
Riad Farnatchi is a special place to stay in Marrakech, it has been described as an oasis of peace and quiet, comfort and serenity in outstanding surroundings and luxury. Deep inside the Old City, Riad Farnatchi is a traditional house and a former family home in the historic centre. It has been totally renovated as a luxury riad, while retaining its old-world charm. The relaxed ambiance, and the friendly staff will enchant you and make you fall in love with Riad Farnatchi and Marrakech.
The current owner, an award winning British hotelier, spent two years converting 5 riads into a beautiful, highly individual, private house, with the facilities of a world class 5 star "boutique" hotel.
Relax and enjoy drinking cocktail's or mint tea in its lounges, on the roof terrace, by the pool or on your private balcony; far away from the hustle and bustle of the streets in the heart of Marrakech Medina, with stunning views of the magnificent snow capped Atlas mountains, or watch a beautiful sunset over the city at the end of the day, the choice is entirely yours.
