Through a friend I had the opportunity to be a guest at the Riad Les clos des Art in Marrakech and I will be forever grateful to him for introducing me to Giorgina and Massimo (the owners). I have travelled enough to recognize special people when I meet them and I am honoured to be able to call them friends.
The riad is very nice, elegant but not snobbish, quiet yet not deserted , central (inside the Medina) but secluded. I will leave it at that and for the aestethical part you can look at the pictures on the website. What I would like to tell you about is something that photos cannot convey and that is the ATMOSPHERE. You walk in from the noisy street of the suk and you enter a warm and safe haven, the smell of jasmine welcomes you, envellopes you to sooth you and put your mind at ease. Georgina and Massimo are the perfect hosts: watchful and helpful yet never overbearing,humorous with style, the staff is skillfully trained and ever present but you almost forget they are there as things appear and disappear like in a fairytale. All your wishes are granted, sometime even before you ask for them! Like the wondrous ginger tea! Amazing!. Owners and stuff swiftly move about like in a perfectly choreographed ballet to give their guest the best of everything but unlike a 5 stars hotel, you feel well cared for not because you pay for it but because you deserve it as a human being. Humanity is something else that pictures will not tell you about. The people at Riad Clos des Arts are important and that includes everybody: guests staff, owners: there are no barriers, no roles, no hierarchy here we are all equal, just with different functions! Georgina and Massimo love their work, their staff, their guests and each other and this special feeling permeates their place and transforms your stay from a simple vacation to a soulsoothing and heart enrichening experience.
