Riad Arabia is a beautiful and cosy riad located in the very heart of the impressive Marrakech medina only 5 minutes walk from Djemaa el Fna square.
Riad Arabia was built approximately 350 years ago by a Marrakchi merchant who rented the riad to traders from Mali in sub-Saharan Africa. The house was used as a place for retreat and recuperation at the end of arduous journeys by camel across the Great Sand Sea of the Sahara. More recently Riad Arabia was the home of a local Berber family from the Taroudant region. In late 2013 the riad was totally renovated and re-decorated in a traditional Moroccan style and is now adorned with mud cloths from Djenne, a town on the banks of the Niger River in Mali.
Riad Arabia is a beautiful and cosy riad located in the very heart of the impressive Marrakech medina only 5 minutes walk from Djemaa el Fna square. Serene, romantic, chic and stylish, Riad Arabia has a tranquil courtyard and five inviting en-suite bedrooms; a lounge/salon (or a possible sixth bedroom) with a music centre, books, games, TV and a DVD player; a sun terrace, a heated plunge pool, a small but functional kitchenette, and a fun and attentive team to take care of you! There is free WiFi throughout.
Comfortable beds, luxuriant blankets and high thread count bed linens make bedtime one of the best parts of your stay in Riad Arabia. Enjoy restful nights after active days exploring the ancient Medina of the city. All rooms are furnished to a high standard with beautiful hand-carved furniture, each dark wood piece adorned with silver leaf. All are equipped with a/c, heating, safe, iPod dock, tea/coffee station, satellite TV, bath robes and hair dryer.
At the very top of the house is a sunny roof terrace where you can choose to relax in an open caidal tent, sunbathe or enjoy beautiful Marrakech sunsets and views across to the minarets of Koutoubia and Kasbah mosques, nesting storks and High Atlas mountains.
Riad Arabia sleeps up to 18 guests in a mix of twin/double and triple en suite bedrooms with two adjoining family rooms. Meals may be taken in the courtyard or on the roof terrace, where guests can dine beneath the sun or stars.
After falling in love with Marrakech and spending a lot of time in many different riads and hotels we truly believe that one of the best ways to experience “The Red City” is to stay in your own private riad without any other guests around. Hence Riad Arabia is also let on an exclusive private basis (as well as room by room) to ensure that you and your family and friends have the whole riad to yourselves and can use it as your own private retreat in the middle of the medina.
Riad Arabia is located in a very safe and peaceful residential neighbourhood in the Riad Zitoun Lakdim area of the ancient medina of Marrakech. Offering easy access (just a 2 minute walk from the taxi stand and bank) it takes just 5 minutes to walk the 400 metres to the bustling Djemaa el Fna along the easy to navigate Riad Zitoun Lakdim street.
