Mike and Lucie Wood, owners of the four boutique Marrakech Riad properties are set to launch a fifth riad in time for October 2019.
Located next to the Ben Youssef Mosque, Riad Spice will consist of 10 bedrooms, a dipping pool, roof terrace and elegant, well-proportioned spaces to relax, in keeping with the affluence of the previous inhabitants; 17 generations of the same family – traders, farmers and community leaders – resided here until 2008.
As with the other Marrakech Riad hotels, the sixteenth century property is being refurbished to retain its original features and embrace its heritage, whilst enjoying contemporary touches and a welcoming, homely feel.
Rooms will cost from £128 per night including a delicious breakfast served at the time of your choosing. Guests will also be able to enjoy the facilities at nearby sister property, Riad Star, including a hammam and spa and cookery school. www.marrakech-riad.co.uk
