The Riad Jaaneman can be found in the heart of Marrakech, right in the Medina. But for all the bustle that surrounds it, from the bazaars to the buzz and hum of the traffic, this boutique five-suite hotel is cool, calm and serene. The public spaces sway with the gentle back and forth of leafy green plants and trees, and huge arched doorways let the gently spice-scented air sway through. There are peaceful outdoor spaces, like terraces and courtyards, where guests can enjoy meals, as well as a sunbathing area for sun worshipping and sundowners.
The suites at Riad Jaaneman, meanwhile, are flawlessly and individually decorated. There’s the Leale Suite, with its private courtyard, where you can kick back with a book, a drink, and listen to the trickle of your own fountain. And the Nefelibata Suite, which infuses the decor with African design elements. And the Partenope Suite, meanwhile, introduces more earth tones through wooden accents and has a bathroom that is nothing short of startling – in the best possible way. Cast from South American emerald marble, the bathroom gleams greenly.
But regardless of the individual style, they all come with artisanal Les Sens de Marrakech toiletries and Italian BOFFI fittings in the bathroom, and sumptuously soft linens and soft furnishings in the bedrooms. These are, after all, rooms for reclining and relaxing in. In fact, Riad Jaanamen on the whole tempts and teases you to stay where you are. There’s so much to enjoy. They can arrange everything from yoga and pilates on-site to private trips to the Atlas Mountains, golf sessions to wintertime day trips to the ski slopes at Oukaimeden, hammam visits, and more.
