After our well-weighted decision on our next destination, we were faced with an even bigger challenge of choosing a place to stay. As anyone planning a perfect holiday/short break for themselves will know, this can take an overwhelming amount of time, especially for the epicentres of tourism, such as Marrakech. This is why we were pleasantly surprised to discover a clear winner within seconds of our search on Tripadvisor. Dar Charkia had a plethora of amazing reviews, photos and charm. To say the least, we booked it straight away.
However, was it going to live up to our expectation, needs and wants?...it certainly did! Room rates were very reasonable, and our Khmissa Suite was absolutely stunning. And can anyone forget their relaxing breakfast on the roof terrace, with the sun rising to greet you and lull you half-way back to sleep with kisses on your face, while the sweet aroma of freshly brewed coffee, mint tee, pancakes and jam encourage you to stay at least half-awake, and the views of the Atlas Mountains unravelling in the morning sun in front of you? I just wish all my mornings started this way.
The room was beautiful, and as with all the rooms in the Riad, had an identity of its own. Charming and beyond, with care for detail on every corner, comfy bed, to say the least, and a fireplace for cooler evenings with a glass of wine or some champagne perhaps?! Boutique Haven it seemed to scream.
Beyond the Riad walls is a beautiful, bustling city with plenty of culture to offer any discerning traveller. This may have been missed if it weren’t for the lovely Lisa and Michael, who shared their experiences of the place, people and culture, and who could always make recommendations for any activity you may wish to partake in while in Marrakech. The atmosphere certainly felt relaxing and friendly, enabling one to switch to Holiday mode as soon as you arrived.
If you’re looking for a holiday or a short break in Marrakech, you too can stop your search and book the best Riad that the city has to offer. And if you do have questions or concerns, these will no doubt be answered upon your arrival by Dar Charkia’s amazing hosts, helping you maximize your Moroccan experience both within the Riad and beyond.
