Maison MK Riad Hotel
Inspirational Marrakech has some of the most luxurious and romantic accommodation in the world. The labyrinth of medieval Marrakech is home to another enchanting place to stay. Stylish, sophisticated and situated just five minutes’ walk from vibrant Jemaa El Fnaa square, Maison MK is the creation of a former fashion photographer.
Maison MK is an intimate, romantic house right in the middle of the Marrakech Medina, and provides the perfect place to retreat to after a busy time exploring the souks. If you’re looking for a contemporary, luxury riad in Marrakech with a flawless service, attention to detail and excellent food, then Maison MK is the ideal choice.
The private world within Maison MK’s cool walls is an indulgent modern haven with rich exotic fabrics, splashes of hot colours and an array of lights and lanterns. In the open patio at the heart of the riad you can find a round plunge pool and lounge where you can soak up the relaxing atmosphere.
The six extravagant rooms with funky designs guarantee you a good night’s sleep, and feature a preloaded iPod and a mobile phone (with credit and useful numbers included). If you want a bit more space, the master suite, Room 1, is twice as big as the other five.
Sip rooftop cocktails or feast on a fusion of Moroccan and French food at the exquisite Gastro MK – the foodie part of Maison MK. This dreamy boutique hotel stands out for offering a great dining experience from sunrise to sunset. At Gastro MK they serve a 5 course tasting menu in the warm, lounge-like dining room where colourful banquettes line the walls. Every morning you can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast with ‘msimmen’ home made pancakes, Moroccan breads, fabulous French baguettes, pain au chocolat & pastries, homemade yoghurts, fresh eggs, just-squeezed orange juice, and fruit salad. While lunch is a lighter affair served up on the roof terrace under the shaded canopies, English afternoon tea is served in the courtyard with freshly baked scones, sandwiches and pastries. You can also try a private and tailor made cooking course.
The equally eye-catching roof terrace with distant sounds of the Medina and gentle music playing in the background, is great for lazy days and admiring the amazing Atlas mountains. If you’re in search of pure indulgence and pampering, head to the Spa MK. Our favourite treatment? The luxury hammam + relaxing massage. Facilities at Maison MK also include a small cinema with popcorn and a library of books and DVDs. Can’t be bad, eh?
