Riad 72   /  Marrakesh travel info

A tranquil oasis in Marrakesh

Intimate, unique and welcoming, Riad 72  is much more than a boutique hotel,  it is your home in Marrakech and it is a tranquil Eden of peace in the heart of the colourful Medina. Each of the 7 rooms, 2 suites, 2 classic rooms and 3 deluxe rooms, are individually decorated and styled, but all offer a relaxing and elegant retreat from the outside hustle and bustle you can enjoy getting lost in during the day.

At the day's end, climb up to Riad 72's roof terrace to watch the beautiful sunset and later dine under the stars, enjoying Chef Mustapha's contemporary Moroccan creations. Families or friends can treat Riad 72 as their own by occupying all the rooms and the luxurious Karma Suite offers couples the ultimate romantic escape.

Giovanna, Stefania and the team behind Riad 72 pride themselves on their attention to detail and their commitment to making your stay as comfortable, relaxing and special as possible. They look forward to welcoming you to Riad 72 and to the Marrakech medina!

The design concept behind the Riad

A Riad, which means garden in Arabic, is a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior courtyard that usually features a fountain and palm trees with no roof. The building which houses 72 is over one hundred years old. Recently renovated  and transformed into a luxury hotel.

The design concept behind the Riad is to preserve women's privacy, a traditional muslim and Moroccan concept. There are no windows in the outward perimeter, while within the walls, the layout is designed so that you don't see what's inside.

Bab Doukkala

The 72 is located in the Bab Doukkala neighborhood, part of the Medina, and is easy walking distance to the souks, but far enough away to ensure a bit of tranquillity. A hotspot for antiques hunters, many of the city’s best dealers are located in this area.

  • The nearest airport is Marrakech’s Menara Airport.

Several ways to relax

Riad 72 offers several ways to relax before or after diving into the old town or venturing out on an excursion to the Atlas mountain. Relax with a good book on the patios, sunbathe on the terrace or soak in the luxurious hammam spa.

The Courtyard

Relaxing and enchanting, the patio is the heart of the Riad. There is a beautiful fountain and a blue sky above and birds can be found singing hidden in the palm trees. It is also the outdoor setting of our restaurant "La Table du Riad".

The Salle Rouge

A cozy and beautiful lounge area is best enjoyed during the winter time or the hottest summer days. The perfect setting for a cocktail while listening to some Moroccan music.

The Rooftop Terrace

The terrace of the 72 is very special since it's the highest in the Medina. You can overlook the old city, the Koutoubia tower and the Atlas Mountains. Great for a sunset cocktail, lazy breakfast or a private dinner, in summer only. During winter time dinner will be in dining room.

The Hammam

A hammam in Marrakech is the quintessential Moroccan spa treatment, the likes of which are unknown anywhere else in the world. It consists of several stages of cleansing, including alternating hot and cold water, lavish use of the area’s famous black soap and lots of scrubbing, of course.

The Library

A small library on the 'salle rouge' is the perfect place to have a cup of fresh mint tea and read a good book about the culture and history of Morocco and the imperial cities.

The balconies

The balconies are an iconic characteristic of the Riad. At  the 72 the balconies go all around the square perimeter and offer the perfect place to view both the patio below and the blue sky above.

La Table du Riad

With just eleven tables, a commitment to fresh ingredients and regularly changing delicious menus designed by Chef Mustapha El Bachna, La Table du Riad is the new dining experience open for lunch and dinner at Riad 72.

La Table du Riad fuses an organic farm-to-table philosophy with fine-dining bringing a new and elegant culinary experience to the heart of the Medina. Care and consideration is taken from the growing of ingredients by local farmers and the selection of seasonal produce to the imaginative interpretation of their Chef.

Private dining

Their private dining experience allows you to make their restaurant your own intimate space for a very special occasion.
Book the “Salle Rouge” for a very special meal or reserve your exclusive spot under the stars on the patio for a romantic dinner or a small family reunion.


Take a break from sight-seeing with a light lunch served on the rooftop terrace of Riad 72 - one of the tallest in the whole Medina. Enjoy a simple yet delicious lunch while admiring views of the famous Koutoubia Mosque, and in the distance the snow- capped Atlas Mountains.

Their Menu

While their à la carte menu changes daily according to the fresh ingredients that arrive in their kitchen, signature dishes include the Tajine Marrakchia and the tender Saffron Chicken Tajine. End your meal with a selection of local organic cheeses or with the sweet taste of a Pastilla de pomme safrané.
