If you have not been to Marrakech before we would recommend that you hire a guide to show you the sites of interest. A guide can show you the parts of the medina in Marrakech that you may never find when wandering alone. They have extensive knowledge of the city including its colourful history. Once you have become familiarized it’s better to explore by yourself We can arrange an english speaking tour guide, officially registered with the moroccan tourist authorities. Please contact us for prices and advice on excursion programmes, away days, belly dancing classes, cookery classes, hot air ballooning, 4X4 off roading and a host of other adventures.

Massage and beauty
Part of the appreciation of the real Moroccan way of life is to visit a traditional Hammam where you can experience a relaxing massage using black soap as an abrasive. This is both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. For those that wish to experience this in the comfort and privacy of the riad we can arrange for a masseur/beautician to attend. He or she will give you a manicure, pedicure, facial or massage. We can also direct you to alternative hammam and massage facilities to suit a range of budgets.
Tips are always optional, but if you have enjoyed your stay and have appreciated the service there is a tip box in reception which is shared equally among the staff.
Charming tri-lingual host
Our Moroccan Manager Aziz speaks fluent English, Arabic & French and can help if you are experiencing problems with communication. He has been managing riads in Marrakech for a number of years and has a wide experience of all of the little problems that can occasionally occur. There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to communicate.
Wireless Broadband Internet facilities are available. There is also a PC laptop, which guests can borrow to use in their rooms or anywhere in the Riad Return to the welcome page
