Riad Kaiss

Marrakech, Morocco

Riad Kaiss one of the finest and most elegant riads in the city. Mere steps away from the famous Place Djemaa el Fna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in the heart of magical Marrakech, Riad Kaiss is truly an oasis in the midst of a desert. Designed and built by acclaimed French hotel architect, Christian Ferre, Riad Kaiss has been featured abundantly in design magazines and books around the world. Having just 9 rooms and suites, it offers a traditional hammam, spa, his boutique, his pool, and a stunning garden and patio with opulent terraces for sunbathing. Due to the riad's multitude of services (cooking classes, a top class restaurant, private chauffeur, personal tour guide and nearby parking), Riad Kaiss is the perfect vantage point to experience the wonders of Marrakech.
