Riad, in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech: Dar Amanza
Dar Amanza: Riad in the heart of the Medina
It's in the heart of the medina, that is hidden the Riad Amanza. In the maze of the 'souks', where the city was born, somewhere behind the walls of Bab Doukkala. The area is still authentic with its collective bread oven, it's hammam and lively shopping streets around that immediately propels you into the hectic life Marrakchie.
Yet, as soon at you push our door, the harmony, the tranquility and the serenity that emanates in the house is so relaxing that you will quickly feel like home.
Riad Amanza was completely restored in 2005 by professionals from the luxury hotel supported by local expert artisans. The authentic character of the house has been preserved, despite the subtil integration of modernity; thus, tadelakts, sculptures in plaster, joinery, metalwork find their place in the middle of the heated whirlpool. At night, the atmosphere is screened through the expertise of Mohammed, the manufacturer of lamps of the metalworkers place, who made forty lamps specially for that occasion.
As per the culture in Marrakech, the sense of hospitality and the culinary delights are always present. The limited number of rooms allows the team to be devoted to its guests in the utmost discretion. Abdou, the butler was born in this house, that is to say how attached he is !
Mariam, the housekeeper and cook can prepare on demand delicious Moroccan meals, light lunches and traditional dinners served in the private living room or in the patio where you can enjoy the freshness on the evenings.
But what would be the art of living in Morocco without a relaxation session in a traditional hammam wood-fire heated? The roof terrace decorated with beautiful orange trees is dedicated to your well-being with shaded lounge, long chairs, umbrellas and a massage dedicated space.
Visited for more than a century, the Medina of Marrakech continues to amaze as it never reveals itself at first glance, it requires patience and curiosity. It impose it's rhythm and gradually lets itself discovered. Abdou, our friendly and smiling butler is attentive and will open the doors of the city by organising outings, tours and excursions for you.
