Riad Abracadabra

Marrakech, Morocco

Formally a small palace called Derkaoui that used to belong to an aristocratic Moroccan family, Riad Abracadabra isolates the chaotic hustle of the human tide and the cocktail of fragrances and spices that exhale the souks of the Medina. Its interior is an oasis of freshness and subtlety with the aroma of rose petals. Riad Abracadabra is located inside the old walls that surround Marrakech's Medina, where the charm of the past prevails in every detail, and is only a five minute walk from the burning Jemaa el Fna square. The rooms are located on two floors, and are different from one to the other. They are for two, three and up to four persons, with lounge, dressing room and library. Here is a place to enjoy a swim in the pool, contemplate the sunset, drink a mint tea or to sunbathe on the relaxing-beds overlooking the rooftops of Marrakech, the minarets and the snowy peaks of the Atlas mountain range.
