Riad Africa

Marrakech Medina - Mellah Quarter
Retreat, Bistro & Cooking School

A boutique riad hotel in the heart of mesmerising Marrakech. Set around a tranquil, central courtyard, you’ll find a mosaic-tiled swimming pool and some peaceful shaded spots made for relaxing in. There's also a small spa, a roof terrace restaurant and the Marrakech Cooking School.

Highlights of Marrakech, Djemma El Fna

A serene retreat in the very heart of the world heritage listed Marrakech medina. Four ancient houses blend into a small, charming hotel which is English-owned and managed. Behind a walled facade and understated entrance door, you step into another world and a haven of beauty.

A large plunge pool, surrounded by a shady central courtyard, is perfect for a refreshing dip after a day sightseeing in summer. In winter a small heated dipping pool will warm you up. Enjoy a glass of mint tea in the lounge at any time of day. Start or end your day on the cool rooftop terrace with a tropical garden and great views across the Medina to the High Atlas Mountains and Koutoubia Minaret.

Traditional home cooked meals are served in the rooftop restaurant using delicious fresh local produce. If you fancy learning to cook tasty Moroccan dishes, the Marrakech Cooking School offers daily cooking courses. A beautician / masseuse is based at Riad Africa, with a choice of relaxing massage and hammam treatments available in the small spa.

Spacious themed rooms are individually decorated in traditional style and also celebrate Africa’s most evocative and fabled destinations, from Congo to Zambezi. Rooms accommodate single, double, twin, triple or family bookings and range from smaller standard rooms to superior rooms, and the best rooms in the house - junior suites.

Sleeping a maximum of 11 guests, one of Riad Africa's houses is available for exclusive private rental. 'Dar Africa' has 6 en-suite rooms and is an ideal venue for anniversaries, family reunions or small group tour groups – book well in advance!
