beautiful hotel with sumptuous huge rooms. The roof top terrace was amazing spent much of our time lounging on the sofas taking our time eating the amazing breakfast served whenever you get up- literally- even if you dont manage to rise till the afternoon!
the little cinema room with DVD collection was lovely, the decor was amazing every little touch was carefully designed.
i actually wasnt that impressed with marrakech but when you stay somewhere like this you wont want to leave anyway.
only minor complaint would be that one of the pools was supposed to be heated in the winter as they were freezing but despite numerous requests the pool was sadly too cold to swim in. although i guess most of the time in marrakech its so hot you dont need to heat them.
would definitley reccommend anyone to stay there.
also got to mention the hotel driver who picked us up from the airport- brown suit, leather shoes, black shades and driving a car with gold interior- he was like something from a italian designer advert- amazing!

It was 2002 when Vanessa Branson and Howell James walked into the almost ruined courtyard of one of Marrakech's formerly great private homes. Nearing dusk and with the sound of the muezzin's call to prayer echoing in the air, they instantly fell in love with the atmospheric house which was being sold with three smaller neighbouring homes. They soon realised that their holiday home was going to become so much more.At the time, only a handful of Marrakech's riads had been converted to small hotels and Vanessa and Howell knew they wanted to open a place offering something different - a home from home retreat that combined great food and service with the spirit of the building's past and a contemporary decorative twist. During a two-year renovation, local craftsman used traditional techniques to breathe new life into the building. Polished lime plastering was used in a rainbow of colours to create walls, baths and bed frames, original tiling was renovated and carved cedar ceilings restored. Retro furniture sourced from local flea markets was combined with one-off bespoke pieces to create a unique interior. ... more less
