12 Talaa Ben Youssef, Marrakech, Morocco
Check availability as rates may vary for dates. Best rate guaranteed.
Most of the riad hotels in Marrakech trade heavily on history, antiques, traditional décor. Talaa 12, on the other hand, leaves old Marrakech outside the walls. The interiors here are as contemporary as can be; not quite minimalist, and certainly still quite identifiably Moroccan, but more like 21st-century Morocco than any kind of old-world fantasy.
Here just eight suites hold, at most, eighteen guests. Which means it’s already intimate in scale, and all the more so thanks to the riad’s many twists and turns — the many lounges and living rooms (and the spacious comfort of the rooms) ensure that rarely do more than a handful of guests accumulate in any one place. There is a central dining room, if you’re interested, though meals can be served anywhere, including on the rooftop, with a view over the medina toward the Atlas Mountains.
As for services and amenities, Talaa 12 offers a pared-down selection, in keeping with its cozy residential feel — this is a place to disappear. Thus no pool, no spa, just massage and traditional hammam on-site and a concierge who’s only too happy to arrange tours, excursions, or day passes to nearby pools or to Nikki Beach, in the Palmeraie.
There is a 2-night minimum stay requirement at Talaa 12.
