Angsana Riads

4

Live like a local in one of these beautifully restored riads in the heart of Marrakech’s medina.

Marrakech is one of those places where you’ll want to really immerse yourself in the local culture and there’s no better way of doing this than staying in a traditional riad. There are six riads that make up Angsana’s luxurious collection and we’ve chosen to feature three of them: Bab Firdaus, Blanc and Si Said. Each house has been lovingly restored to their former glory with beautiful courtyards and one-of-a-kind rooms and suites. The interiors, rooms and suites are decked out with hand-made crafts, decadent décor from whimsical whites and creams to Mediterranean terracotta, and antique furnishings.

While the style might transport you back in time, there are still a handful of thoroughly 21st-Century necessities like a spa (in Bab Firdaus but open to all guests), which has a large jet pool, hammam and steam bath. There’s a restaurant in the courtyard of Si Said which continues the local vibe by serving flavour-filled Moroccan and eastern Mediterranean dishes like tagines.

There are 41 rooms and suites in total which are spread throughout the different riads. Riad Bab Firdaus has clean and crisp Double Comfort Rooms furnished with dark wood pieces, and spacious Junior Suites which have a living area. Over in Riad Blanc, the Double Comfort Rooms have dramatic décor such as grand headboards and mahogany furnishings but light wall colours, curtains and bedding. The Junior Suites here have large bay windows and locally crafted furniture. We love the bold colours, aromatic cedar-wood fixtures and unmistakably Moroccan décor in the Superior Rooms and Suite Maricaine at Riad Si Said.
