My husband and I had planned 4 months ahead our first getaway to Marrakech, I read in details all reviews and tips from tripadvisor.
I divided my vacations in half of the time at The Medina and the other half at the tranquility of La Palmerai.
I picked Riad Farnatchi because reviews and pictures were fantastic, but, after experiencing the paradise of this riad I just think the comments were underestimating.
First don't get fool when dropped by the driver in the middle of the medina's labyrinth because once you transpass Farnatchi's wood doors you will find yourself in a calm, 'zen', stunning, moroccan riad, decorated with taste and introducing you with the indulgence of the culture.
Immeditely the staff members will greet you and will make you feel comfortable and "at home", they gave us suite #7 as I requested: spacious, outstanding room with a private terrace and an amazing shower, and the nice touch of welcoming gifts.
They guided us to pick restaurants, excursions, discovering walks and visits.
They booked everything for us : from taxi rides to restaurant reservations to hot balloon excursion!
The first night we decided to dine at the Riad and we loved the food, maybe one of our best meals and surprisingly very good moroccan wine.
We also decided to try out their hammam and was incredible!
You are always sipping on mint tea and snacking on moroccan treats.
The touch of free laundry: I love it!!!
We left after 2 nights to La Palmerai to "escape" from the busy Medina but next trip to Marrakech: nobody will move me from Riad Farnatchi"s cozy couches, their relaxing terraces and beautiful pool.

- Riad Farnatchi has been described as "The City's Most Luxurious Riad" by Food and Travel Magazine, "The Ultimate Hideaway" by Harpers Bazaar and "Best Luxury Riad" by Conde Nast Traveller. It was created out of six small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech, with 400 year old walls and 21st C comforts. With just 10 suites Farnatchi has the feel of a beautiful, highly individual, private house.
