Situated in the heart of the ancient walled Medina of Marrakech, Riad Arabia is a luxurious 5 bedroom Marrakech riad home with a beautiful salon, atrium, plunge pool and roof garden (with views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains).
Originally dating from the 17th century Riad Arabia retains many of its original features and is tastefully furnished with richly coloured Arabian fabrics, hand-weaved rugs and locally carved furniture. Riad Arabia can be rented exclusively or by the room.
Numerous groups have rented Riad Arabia as a private holiday rental home over the years. Riad Arabia is a big and spacious house that can easily accommodate a family or group of friends of up to 14 people. Perfect for anniversaries, friend’s getaways or a family holiday, Riad Arabia offers great value for money rented in its entirety on a private rental basis.
An arabesque-style bab ed dar door opens into a courtyard from a well-lit medina street to reveal a zeliges tiled fountain and translucent plunge pool, shadowed by exotic palms and a twin-sided three-storey Marrakech abode adorned with Moroccan arches, hanging lanterns and ornate iron railings. The courtyard is an ideal place for a typical Moroccan breakfast of freshly squeezed juice, coffee, omelette, pancake or croissant serenaded by morning birdsong.
The focal point of Riad Arabia's courtyard is a translucent plunge/dipping pool, shadowed by exotic palms and perfect for cooling off in the summer heat. With underwater seats on each side the pool is a popular place for late afternoon drinks and family fun with kids.
The bougainvillea and geranium-filled roof terrace is quite unique compared to many other Riads in Marrakech due to its elevation. Standing up above all of its neighbours the views from the terrace of medieval minarets, medersas and mosques, High Atlas peaks and lofty date palms are near unsurpassed.
Well-equipped, the terrace has sun-loungers with tables and chairs to seat up to 14 people. A traditional caidal tent provides shade during the day and a cosy place to relax in at night. The magical atmosphere of the medina (assisted by a barbecue and private corner bar) will tempt you to balmy evenings of candle-lit dinners under a star-filled African sky.
A roof terrace tent provides a shady place to relax in during the day and an exotic Arabian nights experience during the evening – a perfect spot for absorbing the views and socialising with friends and family.
On the ground floor is a large beamed pale terracotta living/dining room with a traditional Moroccan ‘salon’ and cushions, coffee tables, atmospheric lighting and solid wood carved dining table with chairs. A corner fireplace houses a large open grate for roaring winter log fires. Facilities include satellite TV with DVD and radio stereo (with iPod player).
Riad Arabia's front door leads into a small entrance hall ideal for storing a pushchair, bicycles or luggage. Just off the courtyard under the stairs which lead up to the first floor there is a separate WC with washbasin. There is an under stairs laundry area and small ornate fountain on the first floor.
The high-beamed kitchen is very well-equipped with a Siera electric oven and gas hob, Bosch fridge/freezer, Bosch washing machine and Bosch dishwasher. Other electric equipment includes a kettle, toaster, juicer and microwave. Hand-built cupboards blend harmoniously with beige Fez-tiled walls.
Riad Arabia is available for exclusive private rental so all areas of the house can be accessed.
