Riad Hikaya



Riad Hikaya, 'hikaya' meaning 'story', is a new luxury boutique hotel or luxury riad, located in the royal quarter of the medina, called the 'Kasbah', Marrakech. Riad Hikaya has 7 rooms with a restaurant and spa, and is an easy walk from the main square, Jemaa al Fnaa, and the city's other famous landmarks. It took the owners three years of meticulous restoration and handcrafted interiors by local craftsmen and artisans, using both traditional techniques and materials, to transform this Chic Retreat into what it is today. The harmonious blend of ancient tradition and contemporary comforts, coupled with the emphasis on quality and personal service, has created an unforgettable and unique experience for every guest that has the privilege of staying at Riad Hikaya. The friendly and professional team of staff - Maryame, Lubna, Fatima, Laila and Lahsen - will do all they can to ensure that your stay is a memorable one leaving you with a 'hikaya' to take home with you. Riad Hikaya is one of the few European-owned riads where the owner studied Arabic at University and now also speaks Darija.


Riad Hikaya offers all year round swimming with its heated pool and the roof top jacuzzi, shaded in a bedouin tent for added privacy. Guests are encouraged to pamper themselves in the hammam - steam bath - and let Laila, Riad Hikaya's in-house masseuse, give you a traditional Moroccan massage using natural products. Facials, pedicures and manicures are also available to complement the relaxing effect of your hammam and massage.

The two roof terraces, planted with orange, lemon, grapefruit and pomegranate trees have far-reaching views across the city roof tops onto the snow-capped Atlas mountains and there is no better place to enjoy a drink as the sun goes down and a traditional Moroccan breakfast as the sun rises.  Further afield skiing (an hour away) can be arranged as can lunch at another Chic Retreats, Kasbah Tamadot which is in the Atlas Mountains.  Several visits to the souks are part of the Marrakech experience and are not to be missed.  Trips and overnight stays in the Sahara desert, notably Merzouga and Erg Chigaga can be arranged as can quad biking, horse riding and golf.


Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be served either in the restaurant, Café des Epices, by the pool or on one of the roof terraces. In the evening a three course meal is served and guests are asked to advise the staff of their choice of dishes in the morning of the same day in order that all ingredients can be bought fresh that day from the local market.
