“an authentic sanctuary”
Reviewed 13 July 2008

If I had to choose my favourite hotel in the world, it would be Riad Hayati in Marrakech. The rooms are calming, authentic and so beautiful. Sitting on the courtyard is like having your own outdoor sanctuary. The building fulfils every cliché you’ve ever heard about Morocco. There’s the stunning natural setting, and layers of architecture and landscaping that just keep adding to its beauty. The staff and the service are just delicious: they welcome and care of you from the first step in to when you leave with exquisite elegance.
Two nights here are better than a month anywhere else.

Romance is the word we would choose to describe the vibe of this fantastic riad... Well... Romance and Romantic!

My partner Betty and I have just returned from five fantastic days at this delightful riad. The Hayati's special ambience is just made for a romantic stay. The rooms were filled with flowers, fruit and were so clean.

The house is located in a very quiet cul-de-sac, and it is so close to the Bahia Palace. And really, literally, only a few minutes stroll to the interesting and enchanting souks, the palaces and several very chic restaurants.

The house's style is most peaceful and the decor is so tasteful. We say say it is the perfect respite and refuge after a day in the exotic madness of Marrakech.

And you mustn't forget Mina's home cooking - it has go to be the best in town! Mina's famous "poulet au citron" is a must. Also we have to mention Abdel, the house manager, who is a most charming young man who made our last minute arrangments and changes seem effortless - thank you!.


As for us, well - we'll be back!!!!!

My wife and I have just returned from a week at Riad Hayati. It is an utterly spoiling, utterly romantic hideaway. The essential sunshine break during a rainy London spring.

With Moorish arches and cool white decor it is just the right side of relaxed chic. This is everyone's idea of a fantasy home in an ancient medina .

Then there's the staff. We been around the world twice and have been fortunate to stay in some fine properties, but the ambience at Hayati is unique,heartwarming. Abdel's smile belies his "clef d'or" efficiency. Reservations are made, drivers appear and it just seems to happen effortlessly. Mina's home cooking is first class.

The hullabaloo of the medina is a few steps away but within the riad all is total tranquility: A charming courtyard garden with the gurgle of a fountain and birdsong. The roof terrace is a dream of
olive trees, palms and lush bougainvillea. Breakfast in the "Turkish Kiosk" offers dramatic views of the surrounding medina. What a way to start the day.

Come here to find peace!

Ours is a special thank you, because we never actually got to stay at Riad Hayati!
Three days before we were scheduled to arrive, my wife fell seriously ill with a chest infection & asthma. The airline demanded a doctor's note. Ron, on the other hand, would not hear of it - and returned our deposit immediately without question.
Riad Hayati and Ron are a class act.

We celebrated a special wedding Anniversary at Riad Hayati.
It was perfection from the moment we arrived until we left.
I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is a feeling of genuine warm welcome one gets from an upper class private residence that is well organised and well run by trusted family retainers.
The owner's attention to detail is reflected in the decor and attitiude. We felt like personal guests of the family.
Many thanks for our memorable celebration.

My wife and I are rather fussy travelers, but I must admit that Riad Hayati exceeded our expectations in every way, it is absolutely exquisite with exceptionally warm service.

Mina's cooking is a delight and fully deserves the rave reviews, Abdel the house manager is charming, efficient, and discreet.
Hayati is a complete joy!

The Riad Hayati experience was, without doubt, beyond our expectations. Its hallmark is impeccable service in a most delightful setting. Superb service was always delivered in a discrete and timely manner. The food was always delicious and in our opinion first class. Particular thanks must go to Abdel and Mina for their dedication and excellence in all that they did. Special thanks are also due to the owner Ron, for ensuring a level of personal service and warmth that we were able to so thoroughly enjoy. The champagne, flowers and cake on my birthday were such a great surprise and truly delightful. We have no quibbles whatsoever, just exceptional memories to savour and to look forward to repeating.
