“Love the Riad Hayati experience”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We have stayed at Riad Hayati several times over the last four years, when visiting Marrakech, one of our favorite cities. We have never had a problem at this riad, and always have been treated to a perfect riad experience.

The riad is stylish, intimate and quiet, being tucked away not far from Palais Bahia. The accommodation blends the luxury and service of a hotel with the simplicity and warmth of a family home. The central courtyard always makes a wonderful first impression.

Each of the bedrooms is beautiful (we have looked around them all), with charming bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The roof terrace is a great place to get the tan going.

The service always is faultless; Abdel Haq & Mina make you feel entirely at home. All in all, this riad is for us a wonderful travel experience; every time effortless from start to finish. We always leave feeling entirely refreshed, and look forward to returning.

We had a wonderful birthday party here with several of our friends. Riad Hayati is an absolute dream and we could not have asked for finer hospitality and comfort, Nothing was too much trouble from the day we wrote to Ron to plan our celebration. He had a wealth of knowledge of local "musts" and a keen eye for the new spots in town.

Marrakech can be an absolute assault on your senses. But, at the end of the day we were able to retire to the delcious calm and beauty of Hayati. It's stylish, tranquil and so beautiful. The rooms bedrooms are designed for comfort and the salons are all elegant,each with its own character.

I can't say enough thank you's to Mina and Abdel for constant warm care. This was simply the perfect place to celebrate my 30th birthday. Truly something to remember.

Riad Hayati is one of the most calming, stylish, tranquil places I have ever stayed. Just the memory of lying on the beautiful roof terrace in the sun sipping mint tea brings a huge smile to my face and relaxes me in seconds.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the little suite over a long weekend in Marrakesh in December, and it wasn't long enough! We had a fun time exploring the city on foot, filling our suitcases with beautiful things we came across and sampling as much tagine as we could manage. While we didn't have a bad meal in Marrakesh none came close to Mina's cooking and her amazing desserts. Abdul, Mina’s brother, could not have been more helpful... he answered the million questions we had, kept the place immaculate and lit cosy, romantic fires in our room each night. As we were the only ones staying in the Riad Abdul let us explore the other rooms, all of which were exquisite, the level of detail in Riad Hayati is amazing. Ron has created a beautiful, elegant and authentic home from home where we totally relaxed and I am certain I will return.

Thank you so much for having us!

Alexandra

Our third trip to Hayati and again we can't wait to return...from the moment Abdul met us at the airport everything was perfect...it was almost as if we had never been away. It is a magical experience to dine by candlelight in front of the fire with atmospheric background music, wonderful food and exquisite service from Abdul. Abdul is absolutely charming and nothing is too much effort for him....even walking up 2 flights of stone steps to serve us breakfast on the roof..so we could sit in the sun. Ron is a gracious host who has an excellent eye for interior design and each time we have been to Hayati we notice another clever touch which makes this house so elegantly stylish yet homely and comfortable. We love Hayati and feel privileged to stay there.

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful and has its own character and charm.

Our third stay at Riad Hayati. We are founding members of "Friends of Hayati."It has become home to us. An elegant little haven away from the colourful chaos of the city. It's romantic and calming to the spirit. We just love it. It's's reassuring to know that a place like this exists where flawless service and attention to detail are constant.

The beauty of the place is best described as quiet elegance with great comfort.This is a much loved house with heart, Ron and his team are warm and caring and you cannot help but fall in love with the place and the people who run it.

Room Tip: If you are newlyweds you should take the suite with a romantic fireplace,private terrace and little...

A quiet delightful Riad. We were the only family staying at Hayati. Abdul and the team fed us very well. Fresh salads and couscous/tagines. Rooms were very comfortable and the decoration was charming and eclectic with open fires to take the chill off the February nights. A fairly-priced reliable driver to hand and a very strong armed masseur to unwind the Easy jet knots. A haven on the roof and a splash pool (a little cold in February) would be divine in Spring and Autumn. Unequivocal recommendation.

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking splash pool worked for us

We escaped the London freeze and the kids and grapped a few days of sun and quiet romance at Riad Hayati. Our third visit and for sure not the last.

It's gloriously low-key elegance with everything you'd find at a fine larger hotel but here with the intimacy and seamless personal service of a friend's home. And we have become a friend of Ron and his Hayati. it's just impossible not to be smitten with this beautifully designed home. It's warm and welcoming and that is the reason we keep returning.

Abdel and Mina go above and beyond to spoil us. Never overbearing but always there with the little gestures they seem to remember from our previous visits. My wife loves pink roses so our room is filled with them and the fountains around the house all have pink rose petals in them. I am a vegitarian so Mina prepares two different types of the same dish. A vegtable couscous for me and a very meaty one for my dear spouse.

This is a very special place. We love it.

Room Tip: The suite is perfect for romance. Fireplace, private terrace, little plunge pool.
