      Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Dar Najat Marrakech

      Sejour de rêve

      from

      Nous somme arrivé par le plus pur des hasards en plein centre de la Medina ou nous avons passés un séjour de rêve dans un Riad aménagé d'un décor de mille et une nuit pour un prix très accessible tenu par le maitre des lieu un français Olivier Behart intégré à la médina avec un accueil et une chaleur hors du commun et une nourriture ayant tendance à vous rajoutez quelque kilos avec son Tajine maison ,et son couscous au sucre arrosé de thé à la menthe couleur locale ,à tous les lecteurs je vous recommande cet endroit pour découvrir Marrakech sous un autre angle.

      Olivier Style Hospitality

      from

      It's tough when you are overseas and money becomes and issue. Card doesn't work, money gets stolen etc etc. I found myself in one of these situations and before I could finish explaining my situation Olivier had assured me that I would have a place to stay that night.

      My problem didn't end up as bad as I first percieved - but even so this type of hospitality is unsurpassed, his business became my home and for this I really will be staying there next time I visit.

      The Riad is small but exceptionally done, has wireless interent and amazing decor. Olivier took myself and an Italian couple out for juice and coffee and talked about Morocco - what to do and where to see. I will be buying him a couple bottles of wine on my next trip so we can find the time to "sit and share ideas".

      As Olivier moves around the streets of the Medina you can tell he is well liked and in touch with the people. What a top guy and what a top place.

      Loved the charming decoration and the welcoming owners

      from

      We arrived to Marrakech quite late in the night, cross the central and very busy square and get into the narrow and dark streets until finding the Riad Dar Najat. the owner is fantastic, so welcoming! It is like becoming part of his family, he offered food and drinks, advice, friendship..... The place has been decorating at the pure Berber style, with a magnificent patio and a terrace where you can enjoy a Jacuzzi, glass of wine while looking at the stars!

      Fand die schöne Einrichtung und die gastfreundlichen Inhaber supe

      from

      Kamen erst sehr spät in der Nacht in Marrakesch an, mussten über einen zentralen und sehr vollen Platz und dann in eine enge, dunkle Gasse, bis wir das Riad Dar Najat fanden. Der Besitzer ist fantastisch, so gastfreundlich! Es ist, als würde man Teil seiner Familie, er gab Essen, Getränke, Tipps und seine Freundschaft... Das Haus ist im puren Berberstil eingerichtet, hat einen tollen Innenhof und eine Terrasse, wo man sich schön in den Whirlpool legen kann, ein Glas Wein trinken kann und den Sternenhimmel beobachten kann!

      Avons nous découvert le Paradis?

      from

      Caché au coeur de la Médina, la première fois, on vient vous chercher pour vous conduire dans le labyrinthe des petites rues animées. Façade doucement éclairée, un petit coup de heurtoir et vous voilà au Paradis!

      Souad et Olivier, maitres des lieux, nous ont accueilli avec une infinie gentillesse.

      Le décor partagé entre orient et occident nous a tout autant séduit.

      A la fois discret et efficace, Olivier a su nous indiquer les visites et promenades que nous aimerions.

      De retour, le soir, pour nous délasser de la chaleur intense des journées et de la fatigue, un petit tour dans le jacuzzi sur la terrasse juste avant de terminer la journée autour de merveilleux tagines sur fond de musique.

      Ces merveilleuses soirées avec nos hôtes furent de grands moments et nous ont fait regretter de ne pouvoir rester plus longtemps.

      Souad, Olivier... nous reviendrons !

      Le rêve existe

      from

      Si vous aimez l'art dans sa diversité et le style berbère en particulier , le raffinement de cet établissement vous séduira tant par la qualité de sa décoration (sublime) que par la l'accueil chaleureux qui vous sera réservé. Pour les fines gueules, la tables d'hôte est tout simplement "divine". Cerise sur le gâteau : l'un des très rare riad à posséder un jaccusi en terrasse (aucun vis à vis)... moments de détente inoubliables. Quant à la terrasse en elle même, elle est tout simplement magique, seule une fée a pu la créer tant elle est féérique. Les chambres ? que dire de plus puisque tout est parfait (climatisation de grande qualité). NOTE IMPORTANTE : ouvert depuis peu ce riad propose des tarifs largement en dessous de ses concurrents pour une telle qualité (de 98 à 130 € en haute saison) je ne sais pas pour combien de temps ces tarifs seront maintenus... donc il faut en profiter pendant qu'il en est encore temps.

      A ne pas rater : le lac de tankerkoust à 30 mn de Marrakech, encore inviolé par le tourisme de masse, on peut y manger pour 8 € (apéros et vins compris), dans 4 ans le Club Med s'y installe... alors faites vite

      What a great place...

      from

      We only managed to spend one night in Riad dar najat, but it was a wonderfull experience. The owners make you feel right at home from the minute you arrive and are very helpfull all round.

      As for the Riad itself, It is decorated to a standard that i havent even seen in some 5 star hotels. From the amazing rooms to the jacuzzi in the roof garden, you will feel a world away from the hussle and bussle outside.

      Although you will find cheaper riads in around the medina, they will not be nearly as nice as this and it is worth the stay just for the experience itself.

      Riad Dar Najat -- great welcoming riad

      from

      Stayed in Riad Dar Najat for only one night, because our previous Marrakech riad, Riad Celia, was full. My husband and I were travelling with two teenage daughters. We loved Celia but Dar Najat was even better. It is smaller than Celia with only a handful of rooms but the atmosphere was wonderful. The rooms were small but beautifully decorated. The lighting and artwork are fabulous. The roof terrace is a great spot to relax and get away from the wild wackiness of Marrakech. The owners are on site -- Olivier, the husband is French and speaks excellent English, and his wife is Morocccan. Olivier was very helpful getting us transportation out of Marrakech.

      Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful -- fresh squeezed orange juice, cafe au lait, french baguette and jam and pain chocolate!!!! This was perhaps the most relaxing spot we found in Morroco. Our daughters loved playing with Olivier's puppy on the terrace. The views of the mountains from the roof were super.

      Only problem -- had to fiddle with the hot water -- kept getting cold but if you turn it off then on it comes back hot. (This was a common issue in most of the Morrocan hotels we stayed in).

      You will need help to find the place the first time -- it is in a small lane off other small lanes in the medina -- but when you get there it feels wonderful!!!!

      Whichever riad you choose -- and Dar Najat is a great choice -- stay in the medina not the new city. The atmosphere is unforgettable.

      Camels

      A travel blog entry by adventurebarbie on Jan 23, 2015

      Hello again, The internet is bad here even when "they" say it is good. Not really strong enough to get many photos with my entries and I have some great photos. I have tried several times to send photos and it just doesn't work, unfortunately. I will be heading to Fez in a couple of days and will try catching up with photos from there. Too bad because I was so excited to show you my camel!

      Sahara Camel Trip

      A travel blog entry by adventurebarbie on Jan 23, 2015

      The adventure continues! I have been out of touch because I was in the Sahara doing a 3 day camel extravaganza. It was a long drive in a van with a bunch of crazy Brazilian college students, me and my two oriental traveling companions I met at the hostel. They were the ones who suggested I go with them on this trip. We all arrived back in Marrakech at 8:30pm last night after a 12 hour drive across the Atlas Mountains with ice and snow on the high altitude ...

      International Salsa Festival

      A travel blog entry by alex_rivera on Nov 16, 2014

      The close proximity of Morocco to Spain means that there is some Spanish influence present. The majority of the population is Arab-Berber and is mostly Islamic. The International Salsa Festival best represents the transculturation that is always happening between Spain and Morocco. We do not need to acquire certain ...

They think by showing they know something about your country you will feel pleased enough to take them up on their offer to eat at their stall. The main concern when we have been shopping in the Medina, once right in amongst the Souks, is getting separated and lost. It has made negotiating the ...
