As we explore the magic of Marrakech

Via daily meditations, ritual and excursions with our private shopping guide and optional excursion to the stunning Atlas Mountains.

About the Riad

The setting is a 200 year old silk traders palace, named Enija.  The noise and hustle and bustle of narrow alleyways of the Jemaa El Fnaa Square in the Medina disappear as if by magic to be replaced by the gentle gurgling of the fountains and birds singing in the garden the end result of which is, of course, utter peace and a total escape from it all.

This beautiful Riad has 12 spacious and enchantingly decorated rooms and suites, tropical gardens and fountains around each corner.

Perfect to host a mystical retreat, the magic does not end here, as you open the doors you step into the heart of Marrakech’s humming souks, collorful alleys and bustling bazaars.

There is a famous private in-house chef creating the most authentic, sensual and healing Moroccan cuisine you can imagine. The famous Moroccan tea ritual is an integral part of this paradise.

I believe that Marrakech ought to be earned as a destination. The journey is the preparation for the experience. Reaching it too fast derides it, makes it a little less easy to understand.” 
― Tahir Shah, In Arabian Nights: A Caravan of Moroccan Dreams
