Your exotic paradise in Marrakech, Morocco
Called Hayati (“my life”), the property is a memoir of its British owner’s years in the Middle East.
It combines classic Moorish architecture with subtle tones of Arabia, Turkey and Persia. Berber chests, antique kilims, rich Ottoman tapestries complement the riad’s decor.
The result is stylish, intimate, and therefore extremely comfortable.
Set around a columned courtyard edged with palms and lemon trees, with a rare Damascene fountain in the centre, Hayati is a dream of exotic salons, secret nooks and alcoves. The Hayati structure consists of 4 luxurious bedrooms, 3 of which with fireplaces and all with seductive hammam-style bathrooms. The owner’s study room can also serve as a fifth double bedroom, with private bath.
An 18th-century merchant's home where you can truly taste the Marrakech culture
Guests at Hayati are graciously received by a caring Marrakshi staff. Professional massage, beauty treatments, chauffeurs and guides are available upon request. Mina, Hayati’s cook, will tempt guests with superb Moroccan tajines and heavenly French desserts thanks to the many years of experience working for well-known Marrakech families. In summer, meals are served on the riad’s roof terrace, with enchanting views of palace walls and the Atlas Mountains. In winter, you can dine by the fire in one of the cozy salons.
The riad is especially romantic at night when candles light the courtyard and incense perfumes the air.
