- Traditional chic riad
- Beautiful rooftop terrace
- Individually and tastefully designed
- Gorgeous communal areas
This cool and charming riad is one of our favourites and a popular choice for both couples and groups of friends. Located about 10 minutes from the main square, it is an excellent location; close to the Medersa and the Musee de Marrakech as well as the souks. Each of the six bedrooms is individually designed with unique bathrooms and contemporary décor. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and are equipped with an iPod docking station and a safe for guests' personal effects. There are also several gorgeous communal areas with 2 generous salons (one with an honesty bar) and a welcoming and spacious courtyard. The indisputable wow factor for this riad is its roof terrace, with far-reaching views and plenty of space to spread out and relax on one of the sun loungers. This riad is suitable for both winter and summer visits; the salons are cosy, with log fires and the patio offers a shady retreat from the summer sun.
As with many riads in Marrakech, it is accessed down an unlit derb (or street). Once you know where you are going, you won’t have any problem finding it, but the staff at the riad will give you a hand-written map to show you the way to the square and will help you to get your bearings when you arrive. If you do get lost, you can just call a member of the riad staff and they will come and find you and bring you home!

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.
Kate A reviewing Marrakech & Mountains Family Trek on 26 April 2019
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.

The highlights for us were the accommodation choices - we loved each place we stayed and for quite different reasons.
We found the food really delicious at all the places. We were really impressed. We ended up eating dinner every night at Dar Housnia, which was really tasty but a bit expensive but we loved the convenience of it and loved everything else about the place.
My 9yr’s favourite place was Douar Samra - he liked the rooms and all the meals. We all like the communal meals there. It was good to get to know other travellers. But my husband and I really loved the Douria Suite at Dar Housnia as it was great to the have space and down time by ourselves there. We spent some hours just lazing on the terrace after walking around Marrakech for hours.
We also thought Kasbah Ellouze was really lovely too. They were super helpful accommodating the kids. They made sure we could celebrate NYE dinner with the kids as they go to bed early. It was really kind of them.
We had a Hussain as our guide for trekking and he went with us on the road trip. We really liked him: friendly & kind, and not too loud & talkative (our family is on the quiet side!). Hussain was great with our two boys. He made them feel comfortable, kept them safe on the treks (ie speed walking ahead with them when they wanted (our 4yr old loved this!) and holding them securely on mules over the rough terrain) and he played football with them too!
We had two different drivers who were both good - helped out when our 9yr old vomited from car sickness and were happy to drive slowly as needed.
Also we thought your organisation of everything and choice of accommodation & guides was excellent. We had no complaints. We had a splendid, relaxed and easy holiday - we didn’t have to think of anything & it was all great.
