Charming riad in Marrakech with gorgeous terraces and authentic cuisine, within walking distance from the medina
Lose all sense of predictability and direction in Marrakech, and let its intrigue, mystery and beauty charm your soul. Go on an adventure through the historic medina, ambling through the vibrant souks and discovering ancient crafts along the way, before returning to the calm of Riad Emberiza Sahari, an intimate Moroccan-villa-style hotel with a garden, a sun terrace, a lounge and a small outdoor pool. The oasis-like interior and pool area are elegantly designed, with beautiful detail and furnishings throughout, and the ornate building feels hushed in stillness among Marrakech's colorful mayhem. Serene and spacious, each room is elegantly furnished in a traditional Moroccan style, from the detailed mirrors to the wall alcoves and hanging lanterns. The riad's serene ambience is a balm in itself, but you can unwind further with a massage, yoga or meditation carried out by the riad's qualified instructors – talk about tranquility. A pale canvas allows beautifully upholstered chairs, glass tables, intricate ornaments and patterned rugs to give unique character to the individually decorated rooms. The Elizabeth Rose room features a terrace overlooking the mosque, while the spacious Geddes room comes complete with a comfortable seating area. The hotel’s restaurant prepares and serves fresh local and European dishes in a traditional Moroccan setting. The riad's central location also offers an array of inviting restaurants, or if you're feeling adventurous, you can seek out authentic street food in the nearby markets.
