The fourth property in our client’s Marrakech Riad portfolio, Riad Star, is set to dazzle visitors to Marrakech from September when it opens its doors as a luxury guest house.
A one-time residence of vaudeville star, singer and actress, Josephine Baker, Riad Star has undergone a sympathetic renovation to return it to its former glory, as well as to pay homage to its most famous resident. The Riad was previously part of a Royal Palace owned by the Pashah of Marrakech, Thami El Glaoui, who welcomed Josephine as a long staying guest in the early 1940s. The main residence now forms the Musee de Marrakech.
Riad Star will offer seven luxury guest suites, and a host of facilities including a hammam and massage suite, two dipping pools and fabulous roof terrace with views across the Medina to the snow topped Atlas Mountains. Each suite will come complete with air conditioning, en suite facilities, iPod docks and flat screen TVs. There are also interconnecting suites perfect for families. Guests can look forward to home cooked meals and the best breakfasts in Marrakech.
