A two-location hotel concept in and around Marrakech.
Riad Mena is a serene and spacious 600sq m Riad situated in the heart of the Medina, just seven minutes walk through picturesque alleyways to Marrakech´s main-square, the Jemaa el Fna. Initially conceived as a private home, the personal touches throughout have created a wonderfully unique hotel experience in Marrakech. With six spacious bedroom suites surrounding the plant filled courtyards, Riad Mena makes for a private and very memorable stay.
Just forty-five minutes away in the Ourika Valley is the Riad Mena & Beyond country outpost, a two-acre permaculture farm situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. Whilst Riad Mena is the luxurious, creative city-stay, capturing the inspiring and international essence of Marrakech, the farm is the counterbalance to this, allowing guests to spend the day or some nights away from the bustle of the city. Simple yet beautiful accommodation, a twenty meter natural pool to swim in whilst surrounded by incredible views of the Atlas Mountains, yoga on the terrace with our visiting practitioners and freshly prepared seasonal picnics eaten amongst the hundreds of olive trees, all come together to create a wonderfully grounding and peaceful experience, such a short trip from Marrakech.
We look forward to welcoming you!
