Riad Snan13 Marrakech

 

Located at the northern base of the Atlas Mountains in the southwest portion of Morocco, the nearly 1,000-year-old city of Marrakech brims with markets, gardens, palaces, mosques and World Heritage sites. It is one of the busiest cities in Africa, serving as a major economic centre and tourist destination – having become especially popular among the French. By day the city’s largest square bustles with snake charmers, acrobats, story tellers and more, and by night, spice-armed-chefs roll in alongside musicians. Just adjacent to the Djemaa El-Fna square lies one of the world’s most exotic places to shop – Marrakech’s labyrinth of commodity filled souks which have changed little over the past 1,000 years. Standing as a tiny oasis amidst the tumult of it all is Snan13 – one of Marrakech’s many renovated riads that now serves host to visitors from around the globe. This meticulously redone six-room-hotel melds the best of both worlds, combining contemporary decor with traditional Moroccan architecture and craft – represented notably by the riad’s stunning airy courtyard, intricate moucharabieh (wooden lattices) and mesmerising pierced metal pendant lights. The result is a heady intermingling of light, shadow, water, and exoticism. To top it all off, Riad Snan13 comes staffed with all you will need from chef to chauffeur – Arabian days and nights here we come! Photos via Riad Snan13.

    This little hotel leaves me breathless — like you said: ‘the best of contemporary decor and traditional Moroccan’. The wooden lattices and metal lights are just beautiful! xo Leslie a
