An elegantly restored riad in central Marrakech, with delicious Moroccan cuisine and a gorgeous hammam
Earning rave reviews since its opening, Riad Awa is a modern and bohemian riad south of Marrakech's ancient Medina. Just steps from the Royal Palace and the exotic colors of the souks, this is a chic, shady space that features a rooftop terrace, where you can soak up the cityscape, drink in the Atlas Mountain peaks and even enjoy some star gazing at night. This gorgeous, traditional stay gives you the best of both worlds: You're within walking distance of the heart of the city, with it's lively atmosphere and bustling markets, but you've still got a quiet, relaxing spot to return to at the end of the day.
As great as the location is, the interiors of this stunning riad are what really impress. Elegant, modern furnishings are paired beautifully with the traditional architecture and ornate details found throughout the retreat. And it's not just the design that's earned this place its reputation. The riad features a traditional Moroccan spa, where you can indulge in an exfoliating hammam session, a beauty treatment or a massage with Argan Oil. There's also a restaurant serving local dishes and fresh mint tea, which you can have in the dining room or on the terrace adjoining your stylish boudoir.
The elegant and individually designed Superior rooms ooze laid-back, bohemian chic, with tasteful furnishings and muted color schemes. Each room provides a seating area, a luxurious en-suite and Percale linens and robes.
A delicious continental breakfast is served each morning. Later in the day, you'll enjoy home-cooked local cuisine in the conservatory dining room, which opens out onto a sunny patio.
Using traditional Moroccan techniques and soothing Argan Oil, this spa feels both luxurious and authentic. You can have an exfoliating hammam treatment (perfect pre-tan) or a massage with essential oils. Manicures and pedicures are also available.
Set in the heart of Marrakech, the tall walls of Riad Awa block out the bustle of the city, yet you're never far from the action. Located south of the Medina, this luxury riad is close to the Royal Palace and the Saadian Tombs, as well as the Bahia and Badi palaces.
