- Stylish rooms
- Central Medina location
- Beautiful views of the city
- Fabulous reviews
A boutique Riad in the heart of the Fes Medina, Riad Anata is one of our favourites if you’re looking for a stylish base from which to explore the old city.
With just 5 rooms (all en-suite, with air con and luxury bedding) the Riad is small and intimate, a tranquil haven after a day spent wandering through the souks. The communal areas include a roof terrace with spectacular views, a stylish dining area in the central courtyard (complete with water fountain) and a small, cosy lounge.
The interior design is modern Moroccan, think smooth plaster walls in earthy tones complimented by pops of colour and stylish, thoughtfully paced artworks. The riad is incredibly well maintained and the overall effect is fresh and funky - although you do get the feeling that you could be walking through the pages of a travel magazine.
Whilst this atmosphere may appeal to couples and older families parents with younger children might not feel so comfortable mixing in with the couples who invariably book up the rooms. That said younger children are very welcome although there are no dedicated family rooms. For older families (who are happy to split up and take two rooms) we recommend taking the Green and Red rooms, located opposite each other on the first floor. For triples the Blue and White rooms can take an extra bed if necessary.
Whist staying at Riad Anata you will be looked after by owner Valerie and her small team – they are incredibly welcoming and you’ll be very well looked after, from shopping tips to teaching you how to cook the perfect chicken tagine they’ll be happy to share their expert advice.
A selection of wine and beer is served at Riad Anata and Wifi is available throughout the property.
We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

Wow, we had a brilliant time!! Not sure where to start…
Transport was great, very reassuring to have all that taken care of and all drivers were polite and helpful. Good to know in advance to have some dirham ready for tips.
Treking: Our guide Hassan, muleteer Centim and chef were great. We’d never been guided before and were a little worried about how it would all work out but Hassan went at a pace that worked for us, always made sure we knew where we were going and happy to answer questions but also to give us some space. Food was such a treat! Beautiful locations and we were thoroughly looked after.
Accommodation. Mountain lodge were brilliant. Very cold at night in Imlil so glad to have layers. Staff helpful, food plentiful and delicious. Ouirgane Eco Lodge was a real treat after the mountains. And the riad. Oh my goodness. We loved it! Breakfast on our own terrace, a pool to cool off in. So much space and so beautifully decorated. We couldn’t believe it was ours for the period of time and a great respite from the hustle and bustle of the souks.
The balance of the trek and city was great for us, kids saw all kinds of things in both places that really opened their eyes. Weather was very kind to us so it was an extra treat to have the sunshine.
It definitely felt like a real adventure and something that we’ll always remember as a family.
We had plenty of info from Tourdust and plenty of prompt replies as my queries popped up.

The whole holiday start to finish was just fabulous, the accommodation was perfect and to a certain extent stunning at the Dar Hosnia in Marrakech.
The transport, guides and staff at both locations were wonderful with a special mention to the Douar Samra team in Imlill. They were more than a bit special.
The food at both locations was excellent and the ambience and fun we enjoyed in Douar Samra was beyond all expectations.
We made many new friends whom I am sure we will keep in touch with way beyond this holiday.
You put together a perfect package it was much more than just a great holiday it was a richly rewarding experience.
Just finally to say a big thank you to you for organising one of the best trips we have had.
