Riad de Tarabel is a luxury riad nestled in one of the oldest and most beautiful districts of the Marrakech Medina, near the Dar El Bacha Palace. Unlike many of the riads in Marrakech, Riad de Tarabel has opted for a more French style with its interiors, resulting in an elegant and stunning hideaway.
This old colonial mansion with its sun-kissed terraces, hidden corners and tree-lined patios, is waiting to be discovered by those who are after a unique and more refined riad experience.
The Riad de Tarabel is adults-only (guests over the age of 16).
Marrakech is great for a 3 night dash or a week long stay. Some prefer to shop until they drop in the souks, and you will be spoilt for choice in the new town of Gueliz which has some super interior and leather shops.
Others prefer to explore and take in the wonders of the Red City, which is an incredible place to spend an afternoon. If you are staying longer than 3 nights, we recommend taking a day trip to the Atlas Mountains, or spend a few hours at Yves Saint Laurent's Jardin Majorelle.
For a day of relaxing, dip your toes into the swimming pool, or roof-top plunge pool. The staff are also more than happy to organise treks, leisure activities or events. Massages and beauty treatments are also available, and you can practice your cooking skills during Tarabel's cookery courses.
Imagine an elegant and atmospheric restaurant in Paris; that is how you will feel dining at Riad de Tarabel. The candlelit table setting is exquisite and very romantic, and the terrace is excellent for gazing out over Medina. The food is a perfect mix of French and Moroccan, taking the best from both.
The tagines are exquisite, as is the couscous, and you can end the meal with a soothing mint tea. Just make sure to arrive with an appetite – the meals are abundant! For those who fancy something lighter, a menu of light dishes is also available.
Breakfast is absolutely delicious. Sample Moroccan specialities, including divine pancakes and a lovely potato spread which tastes unlike anything we've ever come across before. There are also a range of fresh pastries, muesli, home-made yoghurts, cakes, cooked-to-order eggs, fruits and juices.
