Riyad El Cadi

Marrakech, Morocco

The northern African city of Marrakech attracts a fashionable crowd of winter sun seekers from all over the world. The lovely old-town, so-called Medina, boasts a greater density of chic boutique lodgings than possibly anywhere else in the world. Even non-shoppers will be amazed by the diversity, colour and vibrancy surrounding the souks. Riyad El Cadi, right in the heart of Marrakech’s hustling and bustling Medina, is a perfect oasis of rest and unexpected tranquillity. Comprising seven interconnected houses, Riyad El Cadi is a rambling maze of various patios, salons and passages. Rare and early Moroccan artefacts, an important collection of Berber costumes, many other objects of Islamic art and classical Asian furniture create an exceptional atmosphere. The 15 individually decorated suites and rooms are spread out over seven interconnected patios. Three salons and several alcoves are the ideal setting for reading, playing bridge, dozing or having a sun-downer before, if you so wished, being served dinner in the dining room. Extensive terraces, equipped with tents and deckchairs, invite you to rest or sunbath.
