Beautifully run riad with sumptious spa. Located between souk el'khamis and the Majorelle gardens. Perfect for the best of the old and new Marrakech.
This 7 bedroom riad has been carefully restored and is a true gem in the medina of Marrakech. Decor combines French, Berber and other Moroccan items.
A large fireplace in the salon offers comfort on the cool winter nights whilst the courtyard and its tall palm tree offer an ideal setting for breakfast. The riad has a wonderful roof terrace on which to sunbathe and enjoy the view to the Atlas mountains.
There is a heated pool, a lovely spa with hammam, wifi, iPod docks and a concierge service. Meals are prepared on request and cooking courses are also possible at the riad.
Zamzam produces some of its food organically in its own vegetable garden outside the city along with its own olive oil. Jams and other organic products such as honey are sourced from local suppliers, with fish direct from the Atlantic.
Cookery classes offer training in preparing traditional Moroccan specialities such as couscous and tagines and cost £50 including a 2 course lunch or £60 for a 3 course dinner.
