This is my second visit back to Riad Assakina in four months, last time was in January for my 50th birthday and my surprise engagement. This time was for my fiance 55th birthday and to pick up my wedding dress.
This is an oasis in the middle of the Medina of Marrakech, a retreat to catch your breath from everyday life. Wether it is sitting on the sun terrace reading, too walking out to the souks and sitting having a cold drink and watching the world go by, fine dining, some of the best food i have eaten anywhere. I can see this fast becoming my favourite place for a short break away.
Michele who is one of the owners of the Riad also has an amazing little shop in the Riad, that has beautiful little things inside, amongst which are some stunning clothing, with hand embroidery on them. I asked if possible if I could have a dress and coat made for my wedding day, which Michele help me with every step of the way to sourcing fabrics/design and finishing touches. My dress is stunning and I promise to post pictures after my wedding day.
Thanks again for an amazing break again Michele and Grant and all your staff who are so lovely/friendly and accommodating. You and your team are fabublous, it just makes the holiday experience that little bit extra special.
