Riad Kniza

34 Derb l’Hotel
Bab Doukal
Marrakesh, Morocco
TEL: 212-24-37-69-42

Tucked away in Marrakesh’s ancient medina, this 18th-century riad comprises 11 expansive residences oriented around several open-air courtyards. The calming, colorful quarters seamlessly blend the old and the new, with ornate tiles, intricate woodwork—and satellite TV and air-conditioning. When you’re ready to adventure across Marrakesh, a considerate, English-speaking staffer will help arrange your daily schedule, whether it’s hiking the Atlas Mountains or haggling in the nearby souks. Upon your return, refuel with Riad Kniza’s decadent lamb tagine, or head to the spa for a dip in the heated pool or a rejuvenating body scrub in the hammam.

Room to Book:

Opt for the spacious, fireplace-equipped Royal Suite Bahia, furnished with lounges and plush settees where you can read a book in peace—or surf the web via wireless Internet.

Insider Tip:

Be sure to ask owner Haj Mohamed Bouskri for advice on venturing around Marrakesh: he’s been a city guide for more than 35 years and has escorted boldfaced names such as Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
