A Luxury Weekend Break In A Marrakesh Riad

Feb 7, 2008
A Luxury Weekend Break to Marrakesh has the real sound of romance and mystery to it, and it is easily possible to find and book a romantic getaway package to a new Riad in Marrakesh called the Riad Noir D'Ivoire.

The luxury weekend break will start at the airport where you will be met, and driven the fifteen minutes to the Medina, and then it is a ten minute walk, and the sights and sounds of Marrakesh will overwhelm you immediately.

Situated in the north east section of the Medina in Marrakesh this is a real escape from 21st century life, and a blessed cool relief after the pressures of tourist days in the Medina where you can be pursued for what seems like hours on end!

Beautifully decorated, and each with its own feel, there are six rooms of which two are suites, although the double rooms are pretty amazing themselves.

One of the features of all the rooms are how comfortable are the beds, so comfortable guests have been known to sleep through the early morning call to prayer, which in the Medina is very loud indeed.

If you can book it, get the Elephant Suite, which has a small balcony overlooking the courtyard, a huge fireplace, and a round beaten silver bath tub, and a monsoon shower. You will find mineral water and dried apricots and roasted almonds in your room or suite, with sunhats and a straw basket for goodies shopping in the Medina.

The Riad Noir D'Ivoire is centred around a courtyard with a small plunge pool, and palm trees with huge leaves at each corner, and one side is the bar, and the other the restaurant. At one end is a boutique and at the other end a comfortable lounge or more accurately a Salon with comfortable sofas, an extensive library, and in the winter a roaring log fire.

You eat breakfast on the roof terrace where there are a mass of potted plants and sun loungers.

The staff are brilliant with that well trained ability to appear just when needed and disappear completely at other times, but somehow reappearing just when you think you might want them again. This type of behaviour is so important when you are on a romantic weekend package, and you don't want to be disturbed but equally you want service, and here the Riad Noir D'Ivoire is fantastic.

The food is just right, and lacked for nothing, they seemed to know intuitively exactly what you are going to need after an exhausting day sightseeing. The dishes are local with a European edge - just right.

A great help before you get lost in the medina is the owners give you a local mobile phone with her number and that of the riad programmed in, so that when you get lost in the labyrinth of alleyways, you can be rescued with directions. You will need this otherwise your luxury weekend break to Marrakesh could turn into the stuff of nightmares.

For a Luxury weekend romantic getaway package style break there is no doubt that the Riad Noir D'Ivoire in Marrakesh rings all the right bells
