Riad Chayma is an English owned and managed boutique hotel with exceptional staff providing the best of traditional Moroccan hospitality. This elegant riad is located in the traditional Bab Doukkala neighbourhood of the Medina, perfectly positioned in between the heart of the 'old city' of the medina - including the lively Jemaa El Fna and world famous Souks - and the heart of the new town of Gueliz, this riad can be easily reached within a 10 minute walk of each of these destinations.

All of the riad's rooms have been beautifully decorated and feature a luxurious marble bathroom with traditional tadelakt walls and a modern candy stripe effect.

Additional amenities include air-conditioning/heating, an oversized wardrobe, personal safe, hair dryer, an I-pod docking station, complimentary bottled water, sumptuous memory foam bed, high quality linen, fluffy towels and delicious bath & body products.

Like all traditional Moroccan Riads, the rooms of the house are arranged around the central open-air courtyard. The courtyard is adorned with beautiful filigree lighting, vibrant Bougainvillea and a peaceful water fountain. The Salon is a fusion of traditional Moroccan craftsmanship combined with a chic contemporary influence. The remarkable fireplace with its intricate plaster carving, stunning artisan lights, ancient fossils and artefacts complement the floor to ceiling glass windows, polished marble floor and designer furniture to create an opulent living space. The room is also air-conditioned and has a flat screen TV with Satellite channels, I-pod docking station, CD player, selection of interesting books and familiar board games.

The plunge pool is an extension of the opulent salon with its floor to ceiling arched glass walls and over sized mirrors. The ceiling is an array of spectacular hand crafted spheres creating a star like atmosphere to cool off under.

The Roof Terrace is a hidden oasis with swaying coco palms, fragrant creepers and exotic flowers high above the streets of the busy Medina. Its the perfect place to soak up the glorious Moroccan sun on one of the sun lounges or the comfy day bed; whilst sipping a refreshing drink.

"We had a wonderful stay... The Riad has a warm, friendly atmosphere and the staff are very attentive. Adil went out of his way to make us comfortable, nothing was to much trouble for him or Shereef. The food was delicious and plentiful. The attention to detail throughout is obvious in the Riads beautiful design. I love that the Riad is in the midst of the chaos, yet when you step inside is so tranquil."

"The free Hipmarrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Hip Marrakech

Riad Chayma is located in the traditional Bab Doukkala neighbourhood of the Medina within a minutes walk of the 12th Century Medina Gate ('Bab') where taxis are readily available. We are perfectly positioned in between the heart of the 'old city' Medina - Djemaa El Fna, and the heart of the 'new city of' Gueliz - Marrakesh Plaza. Each of these destinations can be easily reached within a 10 minute walk.

Bab Doukkala is famous for its 'non-touristy' neighbourhood market, otherwise known as the food souk. Right outside the Riad doors you can find a selection of spices, preserved lemons, earthenware tagines, fresh fruit, baked goods and other gourmet goodies. Within a 5 minute stroll you will find yourself immersed in a labyrinth of alleys as the many -different souks begin to unfold.

We are a 15 minute taxi ride from Marrakesh International Airport - door to door transfers can be arranged at time of booking.
