Riad Hayati
Ranked #206 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed 13 February 2011

At the risk of repeating what so many have said before I will simply add that in addition to its beauty, Riad Hayati is unique in its charm and comfort. We've traveled around the world and stayed at luxurious hotels. But, in this lovely home we felt a genuine warmth. Nothing scripted or overbearing. Throughout our stay we felt relaxed enough to wander into Mina's kitchen and watch her prepare dinner or ask Abdel to change our reservations ( which we did often ) in the restaurants or clubs.

This is really a well-run establishment with the most delightful atmosphere and service.
Very Highly reccomended

This is our second visit and we will return. From the moment we arrived at Marrakech airport we were truly spoiled by Abdel and Mani. Abdel provided everything we needed and Mani provided delicious food. This Riad is something special, 'perfection' and its position is perfect, just a very short walk from Jemma El Fna and the Bahia Palce.

We found Hayati on concierge.com, and thank god we did. After a short stay at another riad on the other side of the Medina, we were hoping for something traditional, but light filled and private. This is exactly what we found at Hayati. Abdhel, who runs the day to day at the Riad, is a gem, and an excellent guide and map reader! His sister, Mina, cooks heavenly traditional food, if only we had more time to stay in and enjoy her talents! we shall be back. rooms are DIVINE. we went in Jan, so cold in the evening and there was always a fire burning in our room when we got back.
I cannot think of anything I would change, thank you Ron, Abhdel, and Mina for a memorable and luxurious stay in your home.

This place is really quite special. It's stylish with quiet elegance but it's really the wonderful hospitality we' experienced here that made it so memorable.

Ron is quite modest about his "Little Hayati" but he shouldn't be. First of all it's not little. There are three houses that comprise the riad and one can wander from large absolutely splendid rooms to cosy,intimate nooks and crannies. Bedrooms have fireplaces and are wonderfully comfortable with aromatic candles, fresh flowers daily, unlimited fruit and fragrant bath amenities from the Atlas Mountain villages.

Mina and her brother Abdel keep the place running flawlessly and of course Mina's cooking is just superb. Every night a new delight served by candlelight in the dining room or by a cosy fire in one of the smaller salons.

We talked with some of the other guests while we were there. They had all been there before and come to stay several times a year. It was easy to see why! We will certainly be back as well.

Riad Hayati is an absolute treasure of delights. The place is a vision of understated elegance with flawless personal service.

From the moment Abdel met us at the airport and whisked us off to the riad we felt totally cared for and by the end of the week we were hopelessly spoiled. Not easy getting back to cold post-holiday London .

Our bedroom ( little suite actually ) had a seductive bathroom and dressing room, fireplace,and private terrace. Egyptian cotton sheets and a luxurious cashmere blanket were wonderful touches of luxury.

The riad has a bit of serendipity about it. There are little surprises at every turn. Exquisite marble fountains, Intimate salons and nooks and a grand salon that could be in a film.
Fabulous books, TV, DVD, WIFI. Ron must be commended for his attention to detail. He seems to have thought of everything for the comfort of his guests.

I must mention a word about Mina's cooking. Simply extraordinary! French and Moroccan specialities from fresh local produce beautifully presented and served. All the guests in the house has been there before and Mina never failed to remember their favorite dishes.

Hayati is a real find and we loved it.

I must once again write a review for anybody who would enjoy a memorable experience in this wonderful Riad in an unforgetable City.
Marrakech is one of those places we all dream about ,so dont dream just go and enjoy ,
There is No place in the world quiet like Marrakech,
Riad Hayati is a Riad (private home) in the walls of the old Medina,
The location is wonderful so Easy to get about ,
The staff are very kind and helpful, they will advice you on where to go what to do, ask and they will do all they can for the guests.
While wondering about in the heart of the Medina, you are able to return into the secret garden behind closed doors and you are back in the calm of Riad Hayati,
You find yourself in the most warm ambiance in the hands of Mina and Abdelhak.
The courtyard at night is magic you will find parfumed candels with an ancient fountain , the Best Food in Marrakech,
The rooms are very comfortable and the view from the rooftop is breathtaking,
All I can say is try yourself ,like me you will have a wonderful time,
Where do you wake up to birdsong and gaze at the Atlas Mountains in a secret Garden.

Our stay at the riad in December could not have been more perfect. My husband and I were joined by our son, who had been studying in Morocco for four months. It was a wonderful spot for our reunion. We were the only guests during our stay, so it really felt like our home - albeit a very elegant home with round-the-clock care. Abdel and Mina took remarkable care of us, and Mina very graciously cooked all of our son's requests - favorite dishes he had enjoyed during his time in the country and a few he had heard of but hadn't tried yet. Everything was delicious.
