Ksar Anika

Marrakech [Mellah]

About Ksar Anika

The Ksar Anika is located in a quiet corner of the Mellah area of the medina, tucked against the walls of the fabulous Bahia Palace with taxi [or caleche] access to front door. The Djemma el Fna is just a 15 minute walk away. Traditional riad design on a slightly larger scale offers the guest the best of boutique hotel facilities combined with riad luxury and individual design. The Ksar Anika's entrance and reception area leads you into the light and shade of the traditional courtyards. There is also a huge roof terrace with many places to relax, sunbathe, read or enjoy a drink or snack. A number of salons are also available for guests depending upon the time of year and day, for example the winter salon is covered and has a massive open fire at one end.

Even standard rooms are large in comparison to many riads; lots of thought, time and expense has gone into the design and fitting of the rooms. Classically grounded Moroccan decoration is embellished in many ways to produce each room with a different style, shape and size.

There are no televisions in the rooms but there is an excellent cinema room where you can watch TV or avail of the DVD collection; i-pod docks in rooms; rates include Moroccan breakfast, free tea & coffee (between 2pm and 5pm); one free use of hammam, water, fruit and flowers in room, free use of gym, local taxes. All rooms have en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, minibar, safe, hairdryer, telephone, room service, coffee machine, bathrobes. Free wifi throughout.

 

Facilities

Breakfast (and other meals for that matter) can be served throughout the riad; there is a roof top snack bar and a full restaurant for guests to eat a la carte or on half board. The restaurant is named 'SIX' as each section of the menu is restricted to six dishes chosen by the chef based upon fresh, seasonal ingredients purchased each day from the local markets.

The riad has a very large (for a riad) heatable pool and full spa facilities including hammam and beauty treatment rooms.
