Additional amenities & feature info
The English Owner has done an utterly successful restoration of his Marrakech Medina Riad, his architectural concepts, design & build subtly resonate throughout Riad Laksiba. Blending creams and beige, terracotta, cedar wood, plaster effects (tadelakt) all of which sympathetically harmonise without attempting a bold-statement. “Old Palace”, style, is a tall order for any designer and very hard to achieve, or at least, pass-off as authentic. Riad Laksiba feels centuries old. Riad Laksiba looks, feels and is... totally authentic… Beautiful hand carved arches and columns, in sable-de-la-mer and tadelakt, influenced by the Kasbah Mosque and the Saadian Tombs. Solid Cedarwood doors and windows with hand carved Berber motifs. Quiet salon areas outside four of the five en-suite bedrooms to give guests quite individual space to enjoy sumptuous breakfasts, mint tea, discuss the world, keep in touch through the Riad's free wifi or relax and read one of the many books and novels scattered around. Well appointed, un-fussy, bedrooms with polished cream plaster walls, terracotta floors, ethnic rugs; all enjoying the modern comfort of Air-conditioning and en-suite wet-room, good pressure, showers. All beds have been hand carved specifically for Riad Laksiba, twin beds in each room – pushed together to make doubles when required, with firm mattresses and hand weaved stripy covers in cream, beige and chocolate. The Splash Pool on the ground floor courtyard offers a respite from the heat of the day and acts as a natural climatisation to the common areas.

About the neighbourhood
Riad Laksiba sits in a small cul-de-sac, Derb Kadi; with a stable opposite housing six beautifully kept horses and two Caleche’s (horse drawn carriages) to serve tourists. Street life in Derb Kadi consists of children playing and locals going about their day to day lives. The street, in itself, offers a fascinating insight into Moroccan life; all neighbours are very welcoming and enjoy interaction with Riad Laksiba and its guests. Located in the Royal Kasbah district of the Medina (the first Citadel of the Sultans of Morocco) and very easy to find; one would struggle to rival its location. Simon explains: “A Marrakech location choice is always going to be a compromise. If you locate close to the main square (Jemaa el Fna) then it’s constant pulse, especially at night, may well become tir...
How to get there
Riad Laksiba is located just inside the Medina Walls at Bab Ksiba. Walk through Bab Ksiba, take the 1st turn right (Derb Kadi) and you have arrived: simple. No fear of getting lost in the Medina labyrinth. Quiet cul-de-sac has no-through traffic and is a very safe neighbourhood for children and female travellers. Airport/Railway Transfers: Our Chauffer service can take up to 8 Guests. We charge 150 dirhams (approx £11.50) for Airport/Railway collection. This is the same as the Government set tariff for a Regular Taxi. Location: The Kasbah district is the Royal Quartier; the 1st Citadel of the Sultans of Morocco: Behind us the 'Royal Agdal Gardens and the Ourika Valley beyond', to the front 'The Saadian Tombs' where past Sultans are buried, the Kasbah Mosque then the Jemaa el Fna and world ...
