Marrakech is a city that satisfies all your senses, from the fragrant aromas of the spice market to the captivating sounds of street musicians – everywhere you turn, something fascinating grabs your attention. Find yourself amid the Moroccan capital’s maze of souks, narrow streets, tranquil courtyards and enjoy perusing hidden art galleries and upmarket boutiques.
There’s no better way to experience Marrakech than through one of its traditional riads, and with Riad Sapphire & Spa, you get the best of both worlds. This wonderfully located boutique hotel occupies a 1930s colonial-style building brought bang up-to-date with luxe furnishings and a minimalist vibe. There are plenty of artistic Moroccan accents throughout, from the bespoke artworks and hanging lanterns to the traditional soaring archways.
Riad Sapphire & Spa’s modern comforts extend to a generously sized swimming pool and an on-site spa, complete with a private Hammam authentically clad in tadelakt stone. Relax with a cup of fresh Moroccan mint tea in the riad’s cosy salon before treating yourself to a massage with some of Morocco’s best-loved aromas and essences.
How to Get There
This was our second visit to this beautiful riad which includes a variety of internal and external spaces for relaxation, including courtyard, plunge pool and roof top terrace as well as tastefully decorated rooms.
Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home.
Will recommend to friends and family
The Riad: The Riad itself was beautifully decorated. It had a beautiful Moroccan feel to it with a modern twist. During my stay I took full advantage of the beautiful pool. After a long day of walking around the medina, nothing felt better than coming home to the Riad, taking of your shoes and dipping your feet into cool pool.
The room we stayed in had a beautiful relaxing ambience, which is perfect to come back to after a busy day.
The staff: For me the staff in the Riad made my stay extremely memorable!
I would like to thank, Asma the manager who is extremely accommodating and caring. She greeted us on the first day with traditional Moroccan tea and cakes. During our chat, she put my worries to rest and gave us vital information which was extremely useful during our stay. Furthermore every restaurant she recommended I could not fault! Her taste is impeccable and I really appreciate all the advise she gave us.
I would also like to take a moment to thank Redouane and Abdul. They were extremely attentive to all the guests staying in the Riad. They literally made us feel at home, and were happy to answer any question we had. They were extremely approachable.
I would also like to thank Khadija, who made us amazing breakfast each day. We enjoyed having breakfast each morning on the terrace with the views of Marrakesh.
I would also highly recommend having a hammam whilst staying here, it was so relaxing.
To sum up my stay: it is like a home away from home!
The riad: The riad it self was beautiful, the place is so beautiful. There is a small pool to bathe in which I use to enjoy using. After a hot day walking in the souks, there was nothing better than coming into the riad and soaking your feet in the cool pool. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and it was the perfect place to come back to, after a long day out.
The staff: For me this was the most important and memorable part of the trip. The staff at this riad went above and beyond for me and my friend and I could not ask for better service.
