Luxury Moroccan Riads

Luxury Moroccan Riads

A mixture of sensuous luxury and aesthetic simplicity, the historic Moroccan city of Marrakech attracts a fashionable crowd of winter sun seekers. The dusky, pink-walled Medina, the 'old city', boasts a greater density of chic boutique lodgings than possibly anywhere else in the world and the multitude of emporia will keep shopaholics busy for days. Even non-shoppers will be amazed by the colour, diversity and vibrancy surrounding the souks. In short, fabulous nightclubs, new-wave riads and radical new Moroccan food make this the coolest place to be. This begs the question: Where to stay?

Riad Lotus Privilege

22 Fhal Zefriti, Quartier Ksour, Medina, Marrakech

This fantastically glitzy Moroccan hotel is down an improbably dark lane in the northern part of the medina. As with most riads, the street front is modest, which makes the courtyard seem all the more astonishing. Set against a pure white wall, two tall obelisks clad in mirrors stand sentry beside a pool in the centre of a black-and-beige marble floor. To either side are cream sofas, and a row of orange trees screens off the dining and sitting rooms. The Moroccan decor is a fusion of contemporary chic and oriental. Part of the style-conscious Lotus group, the hotel was designed by Antoine Van Doorne with his trademark edgy glamour. The extravagance continues in the five bedrooms, spacious hammam and on the bamboo-lined roof terrace. The three suites and two double bedrooms are huge and are decorated in strong colours. All have Bang & Olufsen sound systems and DVD-players. The bathrooms have plenty of Moroccan marble and mirrors.

Royal Mansour

Rue Abou Abbas El Sebti

Tucked within the Marrakesh city walls, across the road from the Luxurious La Mamounia, the 3.5-hectare site has been contrived as a sort of medina-within-the-medina, an estate of 53 two-storey riads, each individually decorated and serviced via a network of subterranean tunnels. In addition to at least one bedroom, a sitting room and a patio, many of the riads have dining rooms, for those who decline to dine in the three restaurants. La Grande Table Française, already held to be the best French restaurant in Africa, the only marginally less fancy Grande Table Marocaine and the all-day-dining La Table are overseen by chef Yannick Alléno (from the three-Michelin-star restaurant at Le Meurice in Paris).

Dar Seven

Sidi Benslimane, Derb Ibn Moussa, Marrakech

With imposing candlesticks, cream drapes and crystal glasses, all is grand and comfortable in this dreamy haven with four bedrooms in the north of the medina. Dar Seven is owned by Princess Letizia Ruspoli, whose super-luxurious Residenza Napoleone III apartment is one of the ultimate places to stay in Rome. She designed the Marrakech property as a holiday home for her own family, and you can rent one or all of the four rooms when they are not in residence. This Moroccan riad is decorated in tranquil whites, creams and browns, the sitting room lined with antique black-and-white prints of Turkish pashas and the courtyard doorways hung with old, lined doors. The staff of three serve breakfast and other meals either downstairs or on the roof terrace, which is fringed with agaves and banana trees. They will also book restaurants and visits to nearby hammams or organise in-house treatments.

Angsana Riads Collection Morocco

59 Derb Lamouagni, Riad Zitoun Jdid, Medina, Marrakech

Angsana's six Marrakshi properties are all built around a central courtyard, with just a handful of rooms and lovely roof terraces. Five are clustered in the Medina near Bahia Palace, while the sixth is 10 minutes' walk away in the Kasbah. You'd be hard pushed to choose a favourite: each is romantic and delightful in its own way and, best of all, guests can use the facilities of any in the collection. The all-suite 19th-century Riad Si Said stands out for its opulent Moroccan decor and large pool; Riad Lydines has a sleek, more modern feel and the suite has a private rooftop hot tub; Riad Tiwaline is one of the most atmospheric with a dark-wood decked courtyard. There's no space for full-blown facilities, but each riad has a treatment room and a hammam where Thai staff deliver exquisite massages.
