A travel blog entry by kitkatgo on Aug 09, 2014

***under construction***

Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.

Nice driver took us to the Cottages. Difficult to find, but he was very nice.

Got in our cottage, Sylvain showed us around. Went to the pool.

Laid down, not feeling well. A/C not working. Sylvain couldn't get it to work, so we moved to another cottage.

Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.


Marrakech: Day 4

... 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 ...

... century for Si Moussa, grand vizier of the sultan and his wives and concubines.

As the only mosque that non muslims can enter in Morocco is the one we saw in Casablanca, we were only able to see from the outside, Koutoubia, the largest mosque in Marrakesh. This mosque has a minaret of 77metres, and is the tallest building in Marrakech, as the law at the time it was built in 1184-1199 stated that no building ...

... in the middle of the desert. It was proof that Moroccans can keep things clean, they can keep toilets clean and with toilet paper in them! If we come back to Morocco (and we will) this is the type of pace to stay in. We all skipped over the tangines and couscous meals and opted for the French meals. Yum. After our meal we reluctantly headed back to our Riad, complete with guard to walk us through alleyway. 2.00am - tally increases by 1. Ken reaches for the Gastro ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Dar Najat Marrakech

    Sejour de rêve


    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


    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


    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


    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?


    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


    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...


    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.


    Séjour charmant et ambiance féérique à dar najat!


    dar najat est logé dans la médina de marrakech et la décoration est subtile et rafinée!tres differente du style oriental chargé,le soir ,les lumières sont du plus bel efet!Tres tres romantique avec une terrasse délicieuse!quand on connait l'itinéraire,on est à deux encablures de jemaa el fna et ils ont la chance d'avoir un accès voitures à 10 metres du riad...Jacuzzi chauffant sur la terrasse ce qui est tres agréable et rare!La maitresse de maison,souad est ravissante et sa soeur,la cuisinière,tres drole et ses plats ,délicieux.L'ambiance générale de la maison est tres conviviale et familiale et tous ont fait le maximum pour nous etre agréables à tout niveau et s'il y a une adresse à recommander,c'est bien celle ci!

    nb:olivier a fait le nécéssaire pour les douches qui ont maintenant un débit et une chaleur tres convenables pour la médina!enfin,nous avons eut la chance de passer une soirée gnawa,musiciens merveilleux et cela fut tres enrichissant! à recommander méme si le chien est tres affectueux le matin...!

    Riad Dar Najat -- great welcoming riad


    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.
