“Impeccable Riad in the Medina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

Villa Makassar is surely one of the most prestigious and original Riads in the Medina. The luxury of the art-deco Mamounia combined with the intimacy and charm of a real Riad. Each room is an original creation, draped in luxury, and the Spa is really something to see. Also, very conveniently located for the Medina; there is always a taxi outside. A perfect Marrakech retreat!

Room Tip: All rooms are plush and quiet.

Great location in the Kasbah, in the centre of it all but with easy car access to the rest of the city andthe souks. The staff at the riad is extremely helpful and the food amazing. It is done to order and picked up daily so, give the kitchen a few hours warning to get meals ready. We had many delicious dinners at sunset on the terrace. Every suite has a different design and the common area mixes Moroccan and art deco design. That made for a relaxing vacation.

We had a great time staying at this villa, it was so peaceful and beautiful, plus the attention to detail against it's '20s design was amazing - even the teapots were art deco!
The thing that stood out for us the most though was the helpfulness and the friendliness of the staff there. They couldn't do enough to help us and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable and would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Marrakech!

I do not know where to begin as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Makassar. My first experience was with Fouad, the owner, who responded to every email request quickly and thoroughly. When we arrived, the staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was serene. We had the good fortune to have a chance to meet Fouad on our first night - it was a pleasure to speak to someone who loves what they do and takes pride in their business. The attention to details in the riad were incredible with absolutely everything thought of to make it the perfectly 'Art Deco' themed escape. Our food was delicious and massages were divine. I have been to Marrakech 6 times and would definitely return for a stay with Fouad and his staff. It was very well located to anywhere we wanted to go and we could not have asked for more attentive service. We went to Marrakech this time for a special occasion - my partner's birthday. Fouad had the kindness and generosity to upgrade us to one of their nicer rooms. Do not miss a chance for an unforgettable escape at Villa Makassar !!

My friend and I were after a short but unique break, and that is indeed what we got! Stepping inside the unassuming front door you are transformed in to the 1920's and thats where you stay. Every detail is thought of and lovingly put together by the owner. The staff are funny and attentive and so helpful. The food was the best we tasted in Marrakech! The delights of the basement spa ensured we came back to the uk feeling like new people, so relaxed after such a short time! Every last detail is taken care of, the mirrors, the cabinets, the silver tea pots, the deco cutlery, the beautiful lamps and artwork. This all leads to the amazing ambience created. I would most certainly go back, and would most definitely recommend this riad to anyone looking for a unique place to stay. With only a small number of rooms, it ensures you feel valued and welcomed and nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: All the rooms are uniquely designed with indiviual 1920's furniture so whatever one you get will...

Thank you to everyone at Villa Makassar for such a wonderful stay. Our every need was catered for to the very best of your ability. Very impressive art deco design, each piece skillfully placed, and sourced with careful consideration from around the world, even down to the stone flagging on the floor.
The Riad is cool and tranquil, and the Spa is excellent, it is one of the highlights of our holiday, the Masseuse is the hidden jewel in the Riad's crown! The food is excellent, and the best we had in Morocco! Although there isn't a gym we could have a personal trainer come to the Riad if we had wished to. We loved sunbathing on the roof, and had everything we needed delivered to us!
We have come home feeling relaxed and refreshed, with lovely Moroccan memories
Thank you once again

I have to admit that Villa Makassar is one of a kind. It is by far the best ryad I have seen. The design and decor was made with a great unique taste which I have seen nowhere so far. You feel you are in a totally homy facility. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable and so is the owner. They made our stay very enjoyable and unique. I had the best time in Marrakech, thanks to Villa Makassar. I would definitely recommend to everyone I know. Good job and Thank you!!
