This exceptional riad offers the highest of standards in a quiet spot, just a short walk from Jemaa el Fna.
The name ‘Ksar Anika’ means ‘Beautiful Little Palace’ and this charming riad, certainly lives up to its name. Its English/ Kuwaiti owners have lavished care and attention upon it, using gold- and silver-leaf in the furnishings to create a unique and opulent look. No two rooms look the same, and each has its own character, some with four-poster beds, others with fireplaces and cosy corners. Many of the rooms open out on to courtyards or on to the pool.
In keeping with tradition, there are no televisions in the rooms to preserve the tranquility of the experience, although those that like their mod cons will appreciate the ipod docks and usb internet connection in the central courtyard.
Here the pool, which is large for a riad, forms the centerpiece. For complete relaxation, the spa and hammam offer both traditional and contemporary massage and beauty treatments.
The roof terrace has a number of private areas for sunbathing and relaxing. The restaurant offers seasonal dishes for each section chosen by the Chef after her daily visit to the market and there are two salons; the summer salon and the night salon and bar which has a cosy fire burning on cooler evenings.
Overall this property is suitable for those with mobility restrictions.

Marrakech is often the first port of call for any visitor to Morocco, its magnificent architecture off-set by the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. It is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the country, bright colours, fragrant spices, the hustle and bustle of everyday life all combining to form a veritable symphony for the senses.
