Why wait until next summer for the sun to shine when you can follow it to Marrakech this winter? Just over three hours’ flight from the UK, or a day and a half by land for the slow traveller, discover the enchanting “Red City” with Riad Elegancia, one of the most authentic riad experiences in the city.
Riad Elegancia is the latest addition to Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts’ luxury hotel portfolio. This 11-room property offers all the modern touches of a five-star, boutique hotel whilst remaining loyal to its Arab-Andalusian architectural roots. Standout features include a marble hammam and two treatment rooms, a high-tech gym, a heated rooftop pool, and hand-carved or painted ceilings in each en-suite bedroom. Located in the heart of the Medina, it’s a short walk from famous landmarks like the Bab Doukkala mosque and Jemaa el-Fna square.
Riad Elegancia’s three-night ‘Discover Marrakech’ package takes guests on an insider’s tour of this historic city with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Walk alongside Marrakech’s towering pink walls in the Medina and slip through winding alleyways; sit back in a horse-drawn carriage as you breathe in heady wafts of orange blossom and jasmine in the air; marvel at pyramids of rainbow spices while you shop for textiles and trinkets in the souks; visit the city’s famed gardens and architectural wonders which inspired many artists including fashion royalty like Yves Saint Laurent.
At the end of each day, head back for some peace and quiet at Riad Elegancia. Take a dip in the rooftop pool or jacuzzi, or watch the sun go down with a refreshing cocktail. Book in for a traditional hammam and massage experience to relax and restore you, before dining under the stars on the rooftop. Taste delicious Moroccan food prepared by the riad’s resident ‘Tabakha’ (Moroccan chef) who combines Moroccan-inspired flavours with a hint of Mediterranean influences.
