... sitting. He double checked again, making sure he understood what I wanted: tea in the teapot, ice in the glasses. Oui. I really think he had no idea what we were doing.

Once the black tea had steeped, I slowly poured it over the ice. Voila! Iced tea. So happy. Of course, we only had enough ice for one glass, but by the time we drank that, the rest of the tea in the pot had cooled down considerably (and so had we), so it all worked out very well. The salads were amazing too.

... a room. The spa was lovely, and our 1-hour massages were WONDERFUL. It was a soft, relaxing massage with essential oil. It was great in general, but it was even better for my migraine. When she massaged my neck, face and scalp, that was the best. To top it off, we had mint tea afterward.

We then came home, showered, and relaxed for awhile during the hottest part of the day. The Canadians arrived, so we got to meet them. They might be joining us on our ...

Facts and advice on Marrakech

A travel blog entry by asiaconnor on Aug 04, 2013

... I enjoyed the weather but you defiantly need access to a pool. Walking around sight seeing is extremely hot but having a pool makes a hell of a difference. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my week in Marrakech finding it different from my expectations. I would defiantly return to the country for shopping but I wouldn't rush back! I found it very cultural, educating in religion, other cultures and a different way of life which I love learning ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Ariha Marrakech

    Simply unforgetable

    from

    My 3 day stay at the Ariha was simly unforgetable. It exceeded my expectations and delivered on the promise of a romantic and exoctic oasis in the heart of Marrakech. We were welcomed by Barbara , the owner with fresh orange juice and cookies; she was a lovely and generous hostess. We had pre- arranged a vegetable tagine to be prepared for us for our first nights dinner. We took it on the roof terrace and never have my husband and I been more delighted with a meal. Everything was so wonderful. We encountered a bit of rain on our second day and quite frankly we enjoyed the romance of our room so much we took it as a cue to snuggle up and listen to the rain.

    Loved Riad Ariha

    from

    Riad Ariha was a calm oasis in the middle of magical , bustling, marrakesh madina. We had a wonderful stay with Barbera and her wonderful staff. The modernisation of the riad was completed only a few months ago in an authentic style but with all mod cons. Breakfast served in the courtyard at time chosen by guests was lovely. On arrival we had a meal there which was one of the best we had in our stay in Morroco. We will return to stay there next time we visit Marrakesh

    Riad Ariha is a jewel!

    from

    Riad Ariha was a wonderful little Riad in the middle of the Medina (old quarter). The Jacaranda room was absolutely perfect and our hosts were more than helpful making us feel at home. They even negotiated pricing for us for dinner and other things we wanted to bring home with us.

    I can't recommend Riad Ariha highly enough.

    Riad Ariha [--] para aquellos planeando visitar Marrakesh, recomendaría sumamente el mágico Riad Al Ariha en el centro de Medina. A través de la confusión de burros, carretillas, bicicletas y motocicletas, abrí una puerta, y encontré un refugio de paz y belleza. El patio con su piscinita era como un oasis, y tuve el privilegio de haber podido visitar cada una de las habitaciones únicas diseñadas con un ojo excelente al detalle más pequeño. Uno también puede admirar la vista de las Montañas Atlas desde el techo corredizo. La guinda del pastel fue el personal cariñoso y eficiente quien me hizo sentir más como un miembro de la familia que como un huésped. Uno puede pedir comidas tradicionales, las cuales conozco bien, y fueron de una calidad superior. ¡Resulta que estuve allí al mismo tiempo que un chef profesional del Reino Unido, quien estuvo tan impresionado que pidió las recetas! Para unas vacaciones inolvidables, no te pierdas el Riad.

    Recomiendo sumamente a cualquiera quien quiera visitar Marrakech

    from

    Me hospedé en el Riad Ariha cuatro noches a finales de abril, y pasé el rato más maravilloso. El riad queda en el centro de la Medina, y el entorno del riad es hermoso y muy tranquilo con paredes limpias y blancas y 4 habitaciones hermosas y simples. Hay un techo con almohadones y sillas, al igual que un área para sentarse en un balcón al aire libre en la segunda planta, y lo hace un lugar perfecto para tomarse un té de menta después de un día de hacer turismo. El té de menta del Riad Ariha fue el mejor que tuve en todo Morocco. Además, el dueño es increíblemente servicial y responde rápidamente al correo electrónico. Y el personal del riad es extremadamente amable, y te ayudará con todas y cada una de tus sugerencias, y reservaciones a cenas y a actividades para hacer durante el día. Nunca he conocido a un personal tan amable y acogedor en ninguna otra parte. Este riad definitivamente es un descubrimiento, y lo recomiendo sumamente a cualquiera que quiera visitar Marrakech.

    Je recommande vivement le Riad Ariha à tous ceux qui vont à Marrakech

    from

    J'ai séjourné quatre nuits au Riad Ariha à la fin du mois d'avril et j'ai passé un moment des plus merveilleux.

    Le Riad se situe au milieu de la Médina et le cadre est magnifique et très paisible. Ses murs sont blancs immaculés et ses 4 chambres belles et simples.

    Il y a une terrasse avec des poufs et des chaises ainsi qu'un espace détente sur le balcon ouvert au 2ème étage, un endroit parfait pour prendre un thé à la menthe après une journée de visites. Le thé à la menthe du Riad Ariha est le meilleur que j'ai bu dans tout le Maroc.

    Par ailleurs, le propriétaire est extrêmement chaleureux et vous aidera en faisant des suggestions et des réservations de dîners ou d'activités pour la journée. Je n'ai jamais rencontré nulle part ailleurs un personnel aussi accueillant et arrangeant.

    Ce Riad était vraiment une trouvaille et je le recommande à toute personne qui visite Marrakech.

    Riad Ariha

    from

    Pour ceux qui ont l'intention de visiter Marrakech, je recommanderais sans réserve le magique Riad Al Ariha au centre de la Médina.

    Après m'être frayé un chemin dans l'encombrement des ânes, des brouettes, des vélos et des motos, j'ai ouvert une porte sur un paradis de paix et de beauté. La cour intérieure avec sa piscine ressemblait à une oasis et j'ai eu le privilège de pouvoir visiter chacune des chambres uniques et amménagées dans le souci du moindre détail.

    On peut également admirer la vue sur les montagnes de l'Atlas en montant sur la terrasse. Et cerise sur le gâteau, les membres du personnel chaleureux et efficaces qui m'ont davantage donné l'impression d'être en famille plutôt qu'un client.

    Je connais bien la cuisine traditionnelle et j'ai trouvé celle qu'on nous a servie ici de qualité supérieure. Je me suis trouvé là bas en même temps qu'un chef de cuisine professionnel anglais qui a été tellement impressionné qu'il a demandé les recettes !

    Pour des vacances inoubliables, ne manquez pas ce Riad !

    Recommended

    from

    My partner and I stayed here for a few nights during our recent holiday in Morroco. Overall, we felt the Riad was pleasant and presented reasonable for money.

    Positives: Modern, clean, stylish, quiet, air-conditioned (useful when you arrive in August from a rainy England), friendly staff.

    Negatives: Bland breakfast, location (is a little out of the way).

    I highly recommend Riad Ariha to anyone visiting Marrakech

    from

    I stayed in Riad Ariha for four nights at the end of April and I had the most wonderful time. The riad is in the middle of the media, and the setting of the riad is gorgeous and very tranquil, with clean, white walls and 4 beautiful, simple rooms. There is a roof with cushions and chairs, as well as a seating area on a second level balcony that is open and makes a perfect spot for mint tea after a day of touring. The mint tea at Riad Ariha was the best that I had in all of Morocco. In addition, the owner, is incredibly helpful and responds quickly to email correspondence. And the staff at the riad is extremely friendly and will help with any and all suggestions and reservations to dinners and things to do during the day. I've never found such friendly and accomodating staff anywhere else. This riad was definitely a find and I highly recommend it to anyone who visits Marrakech.

    Riad Ariha [--]

    For those planning on visiting Marrakesh, I would strongly recommend the magical Riad Al Ariha in the center of the Medina. Making my way through the confusion of donkeys, wheelbarrows, bicycles and motorcycles, I opened a door and found a haven of peace and beauty. The courtyard with its dipping pool was like an oasis, and I was privileged to have been able to visit each of the unique bedrooms fitted out with an excellent eye to even the smallest detail. One can also admire the view of the Atlas Mountains from the sunroof

    And the icing on the cake was the warmhearted and efficient staff who made me feel more like a family member than a guest. One can order meals of traditional food, of which I am well acquainted, and found them of a superior quality. I happened to be there at the same time as a professional chef from the UK who was so impressed that he asked for the recipes!

    For an unforgettable holiday, don't miss this Riad.
