Expert review of Riad Green Mango

A relaxed riad ideal for a younger crowd.

This brand new riad (I visited before its 'official opening') is the baby of former stock market trader Sebastien Pierre and his wife Sarah. It’s an immaculately renovated, trendy house with a Sahara-meets-Thailand feel and a relaxed, cosmopolitan vibe. There’s an emphasis on texture, with dark carved wooden furniture, soft wooden flooring in the galleries, shiny tadelakt and carved plasterwork, and a leather Chesterfield slouched in front of the salon fireplace. The roof terrace is particularly groovy and has a lounge bar atmosphere, with a range of seating areas set over different levels, along with a hammam and Jacuzzi – all in all, it’s the perfect location for a romantic getaway or a long weekend partying with friends.
 

Location: 

The house is towards the eastern edge of the medina, not far from Place de Moukef, in the quartier Dabachi - a predominantly residential area.

Bedrooms: 

There are two double bedrooms and three suites. All have bathrooms, heating, air conditioning and fireplaces. Cream and ochre tadelakt dominate the colour scheme, and attention to detail is the order of the day, for example with monogrammed towels and bathrobes, fresh flowers and incense.

Public areas: 

There’s a cosy winter salon on the ground floor, with comfortable seating, a big fireplace, ipod speakers and TV projector screen; a b’hou (recessed seating area opening onto the courtyard) and a range of seating areas on the roof terrace.

Eating and drinking: 

A top quality breakfast including some of the best Moroccan pancakes you’ll find in town; delicious dinners are also available (order in the morning for the same evening).

Leisure facilities: 

Small Jacuzzi and hammam on the roof; massages and other treatments can be arranged.

Service: 

Sebastien has excellent English, and he and his wife Sarah do an excellent job of running the place and keeping everyone happy. Sebastien is also knowledgeable about places to eat, drink and party around Marrakech; he has worked as creative director for the Bab Hotel and is an occasional DJ.
