Riad Joya is the latest luxury Riad to open in the heart of the Marrakech Medina, just a few steps from the Djemaa El Fna Square. Situated in the historical and protected area of the Mouassine this little gem is hidden amidst the souks in a very quiet area. Designed by Umberto Branchini, Architect and Designer extraordinaire Riad Joya has a timeless elegance and sophistication which, when coupled with exceptional personal service, makes a stay here a very private affair. Should you wish your suitcase can be unpacked and packed for you, and anything and everything can be arranged by the charming Khalid and his team.
Less than a minute's walk from the souks Riad Joya is in possibly the best location of any luxury Riad in the medina. The Djemma El Fna Square is 2 minutes walk away making the cultural attractions of Marrakech a short taxi ride away. If taking a taxi to Gueliz for a bit of shopping in the new town, don't pay more than 20 Dirham and the same goes for a ride to the Jardins Majorelle (NB. opposite the entrance there is a fantastic shop full of great designers). If shopping is your thing then do head to the industrial area (150 Dirham for wait and return) where there are some great interior shops. The large roof terrace will soon be home to a pool and for those looking for a bit of pampering there is a luxury hammam and treatment room large enough for couples to share.
The restaurant at Riad Joya is unique. Not only is it very pretty and softly lit, but guests have the choice of authentic Moroccan or Italian cuisine for lunch and dinner. The chef has been trained by the Italian owner's mother who has passed down recipes that have been in the family for generations. The food is freshly prepared and is simply delicious.
The 7 sumptuous and seriously cool suites at Riad Joya have been beautifully designed with space, light and comfort in mind. Lulu chose to stay in Suite Dar Arabe a vast room with spacious sitting area and large en-suite bathroom. All of the suites have their own dressing and sitting area and many have their own open fire which is lit during the cooler months. The design of the suites has been inspired by the many cultural influences over the centuries from the Romans, Greeks and the Ottamans. Whatever your choice of suite you won't be disappointed and we love the fact that some are interconnecting making them ideal for families.
