Arriving in to Marrakech

A travel blog entry by mcnamaras


Thursday 17th May

Marrakech airport is what I imagine Bankstown airport must be like, very, very basic. You disembark onto the tarmac, walk through a glass door, run to get an immigration form, complete and submit this, collect your bags and walk out to empty space. A dust storm had blown up that afternoon due to the extreme heat, 40oC, …

Marrakech in the sun!

A travel blog entry by karyn512


The sun is shining!!! H'am da Allah! (Thanks be to God!) We had breakfast at the riad and a guide, Mohammed (not the same as our earlier driver) met us as was arranged by Journey Beyond Travel. He brought us to the Ben Youssef Medersa and the museum attached to it. The Ben Youssef Madersa used to be a school that boys came to from all over to study …

Back to Marrakech in the rain

A travel blog entry by karyn512


We had a lovely breakfast at Dar Liouba - flan, chopped fruit and some sort of pancakes. We left Essaouira in the rain and traveled all the way to Marrakech with it. Our driver didn't know where are riad was (he was a new one who barely spoke for the whole 3 hours - we missed Mohammed) so someone else had to show him. Not fun to be guessing in the …

Welcome to Marrakech

A travel blog entry by karyn512


We arrived after what felt like days of flying...and were amazed at this city! Our riad is absolutely beautiful and the people here are very nice. After a nap (we haven't slept for 24 hours!) we headed out to Jmaa El Fnaa - where we found people with monkeys, snakes, musicians, dancers, etc. The place was hopping for 6 pm on a Thursday night! We …

Out of Africa ( south)

A travel blog entry by jkjohnson


... we have explored, Africa is a place where the beauty of the natural world overwhelms, catches you in the throat. You enter a transformative space that fosters an awareness of your astonishing insignificance on the planet. There is a touch of melancholy as we jet north. However, we are extremely fortunate, unfairly privileged and immensely grateful to have glimpsed the southern reaches of this magnificent ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Karmela Marrakech

    Riad Karmela a haven of tranquillity in Marrakech


    Riad Karmela is set in the heart of the Marrakech medina but is a haven of calm, quiet and tranquillity. Reburbished recently from a traditional courtyard-based property with just a few rooms (all en-suite), the hotel has an intimate feel which is augmented by the friendly and helpful staff. Everything is decorated in wonderful luxurious but toned-down Morrocan taste and rooms have air-conditioning. Rooms are set around the courtyard on two floors, with breakfast and dinner served in and around the courtyard. The courtyard contains sofas, cushions and tables, four orange trees, and a small hot pool with jacuzzi. We had dinner at the hotel two nights and it was superb - delicious and very tasty versions of Morrocan food with wonderful fresh ingredients. The hotel's other big drawcard is the roof terrace looking out over the Marrakech roof-tops towards the snow-topped Atlas Mountains. The roof terrace has a comfortable covered terrace area with sofas, cushions and tables - perfect for a sundown drink (and fabulous nibbles) - sun loungers, and a small pool. I've never wanted to write a hotel review before but this was special.

    Riad Karmela - oasis of peace within the Medina


    We stayed at the Riad Karmela for four days over Christmas in an attempt to avoid turkey and plum pudding and to experience an entirely different culture. It fully met both these wishes.

    Riad Karmela


    We had a wonderful trip to Marrakech and our stay at Riad Karmela made it all the more delightful. The staff went out of their way from the offset to make us feel welcome.

    Piece of Marrakech Tranquility


    Excellent place to stay.

    Riad inoubliable


    Le riad Karmela est une maison typique du Maroc ou passer des moments merveilleux et inoubliables, Décoré avec beaucoup de gout. J'y ai invité des amis pour feter mon anniversaire...... et tous ont été charmé par ce lieux magique...... Philippe et son équipe nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et en professionnel.............. l'organisation de ma soirée blanche m'a comblé, c'était génial jusque dans le moindre détail ( le service, la deco des tables, le diner, les musiciens, les danseuses ... )

    Encore merci à Philippe et à son équipe, grace à vous, pour mes amis et moi ce week-end reste dans nos mémoire comme un moment extraordinaire.

    Riad Karmela


    Superbement restauré, le riad Karmela nous a fait vivre les mille et une nuits de Marrakech...

    Chambres de grand confort, toutes différentes, la décoration est soignée, le service est prévenant et bienveillant, toujours attentif .

    Et la cuisine...un vrai moment de plaisir gustatif...la cuisinière Marocaine nous a concocté de vrais spécialités locales.

    Nous avons été séduit!

    Nous le recommandons à nos amis, c'est une des meilleurs adresses de Marrakech.

    D'ailleurs, nous y retournerons en janvier 2007, un cadeau pour l'anniversaire de mon épouse.

    Beautiful Karmela Riad


    Lovely Riad decorated recently with taste. Warm and welcoming staff. Beautiful jacuzzi and roof terrace where to enjoy sunny breakfast. Great view. To recommend. AA

    Du goût et de la prévenance


    Après les mises en garde des agences quant au "problèmes riads". Nous avons été agréablement par la simplicité de la réservation, des informations transmises, de la prévenance pour simplifier le séjour avant et pendant (merci internet).

    Dans ce riad rénové avec goût (en juillet) ce n'est qu'au moment de notre départ pour Marrakech que l'on a découvert qu'il était référencé (pour les anciens propriétaires) dans le "Routard". Cette recommandation est encore amplement méritée et la notion d'hôte est pleinement appliquée.

    Une bonne adresse pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les hôtel de chaîne et espère un accueil personnalisée.

    Séjour du 21 au 24/11/2006

    Lovely riad


    A lovely riad. Unfortunately it was still being renovated whilst we were there and thus, no pool. However, it is a lovely riad with a spectacular roof terrace. Staff were most helpful and we enjoyed our stay there. A gorgeous courtyard and good rooms.
