About Riad Zamzam

The Riad ZamZam is located in the northern part of Marrakech Medina. The riad is entered through a doorway at the end of one of the Medina ’s little lanes. Inside, the vaulted entrance leads you into the open-air courtyard dominated by the ancient palm. This wonderful intimate riad offers free Wi-Fi, a Moroccan-style décor and a rooftop terrace with sunbeds and mountain views.

This riad is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.

Accommodation: Riad ZamZam offers seven rooms and suites over two floors; each room has been decorated in an individual style. Stylish French and Moroccan antiques furnish the bedrooms together with hand woven Berber Carpets and artifacts sourced locally.

The marble bathrooms are wonderfully crafted with luxury towels and organic products. Rooms also feature air-conditioning, demist mirrors, safes, wifi, mp3 docking stations and fruit/water. A feature of all the rooms is the stunning lighting created by one of Morocco’s top designers.

Reviews

"Thank you again for all your help in putting the itinerary together. Your suggestions were spot on. Riad Zamzam in particular was absolutely fantastic particularly with helping with the children (food and activities) - I really can't recommend them enough."
