In the heart of what is arguably the most beautiful district in Marrakech’s medina, dotted with antique shops and the Dar El Bacha Palace, lies the serene Riad de Tarabel. The 10-room colonial-style mansion combines harmony and elegance with tree-lined patios, candle lit terraces and a peaceful pool. Add the courtyard spa, Les Bains de Tarabel, offering traditional hammam rituals, massages and facials, and you’ve found yourself a corner of serenity in the heart of the Red City.
WHY WE LOVE IT
With its soft, cool tones, decidedly French approach to the interiors (filled with heirlooms from the owner’s family chateau) and subtle scents of eucalyptus and orange blossoms, Riad de Tarabel feels like a moment of zen in a city that overwhelms all of the senses, in every possible way.
Located in the heart of Marrakech’s old Medina, Tarabel is walking distance to many of the city’s sites, such as Dar El Bacha Palace, the famous Jemaa el-Fna Square, Ben Youssef Madrasa and of course, the souks.
