Located within the walls of the famous Marrakech Medina Riad Shambala, which opened in 2012 is the owner Carlos's boutique hotel dream come to life.  His vision was to create a truly authentic Moroccan Riad right from the word go using traditional building methods, materials and furnishings.  The result is a classical Riad which is admired and appreciated by locals and enjoyed and loved by guests.  During the construction only traditional Moroccan materials were used, such as Tadelakt plaster (hand polished concrete) and Bejmat (baked clay), which were all handmade using traditional tools producing a whole and complete piece of artisan work.


Relax and enjoy drinking cocktails or mint tea in Riad Shambala's lounges or by the small swimming pool; or watch a beautiful sunset on the terrace across the city rootops at the end of the day.  Should you book with Riad Shambala they will send you a very detailed and useful document on what to see and do in Morocco - very useful if it is your first timing visiting.


Enjoy a feast of a breakfast which can be taken in any of the Riad's charming locations or terraces.  Breakfast at Riad Shambala includes fresh fruit, fruit juices, coffee, pancakes, home-made jams, pastries and locally laid eggs which can be made how you like. Whilst there are some wonderful restaurants to choose from in Marrakech a romantic evening in enjoying traditional Moroccan dishes on the terrace is a must.
