Riad Farnatchi was recommended to us by friends who had visited 5 years ago 'You just have to go there' to quote. So expectations were high but this was also the first trip my husband I had made together without our 3 very young children. So we wanted something special... From the moment we were let through the huge door...

There are few things I could say that have not been said before. This is THE Riad from which to explore Marrakech. The staff are fantastic, the service impeccable and the rooms embody everything that is wonderful about the city. The impeccable taste is palpable throughout the property, from the exquisite furnishings to the fantastic food prepared by a real...

We just left Riad Farnatchi and we already miss the magical atmosphere, the warm and impeccable service, the smile of everyone who works there, the beauty of the rooms and the attention to very nice and unique handycraft works that you will find here and there in the Riad. The Riad is an oasi of peace in the crazy Medina....

Having thoroughly enjoyed my last stay I rebooked a return visit with my parents. On arrival we discovered my parents had been upgraded to the top suite (number 9) and I was in an equally beautiful suite nearby. All the staff remembered me from my last visit with welcoming smiles and James Wix who has now taken over from his...

An idyllic peaceful haven in the heart of the craziness of Marrakesh. Everything from the impeccable staff to the gorgeous food and drinks was first class. Farnatchi is beautifully decorated and so much attention is given to detail – a maid filled our bath with flower petals after finding it was our Honeymoon. You must have a massage whilst your...

Having stayed at a couple of other riads in the medina I was immediately impressed by the slick service. The staff all spoke excellent English, were speedy with any requests you may have, and very charming. Definitely make sure you have at least one dinner in the Riad as the women Berber chefs can cook up some serious home-cooked feasts....

A truly magical place in the heart of Marrakesh. I will keep it simple and will just say that absolutely EVERYTHING was perfect. Location, Food, Massage (the best!), Style, Atmosphere and most importantly the Staff and Hotel Manager of Riad Farnatchi will make your stay unforgetable and magical. 10 out 10.

On a long weekend visit at the end of January, we found Riad Farnatchi to be a magical, peaceful and comfortable hideaway in chaotically fascinating Marrakech. Its location is excellent, very close to the architecturally magnificent Medersa Ben Youssef and an entrance to the Souks. The service was attentive while remaining both discreet and friendly - it would have shamed...

This is the most wonderful riad in Marrekech, From the location, decor, luxury, food, rooms......in fact, I cannot think of a single thing I would change. The service is perfect. Everything is possible. The staff is warm - never in your face, but always there. That is a testament to the manager who clearly loves the riad and what he...

Oasis in the glorious chaos of Marrakech. Wonderfully decorated and appointed riad with many cozy nooks and peaceful corners. The staff is fantastic and attentive without being intrusive. Every whim was brilliantly executed. One of the most wonderful stays of our lives. Go! be transported back in time and pampered like no place else. Best hotel manager, and massage hands...

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
