Riad Anayela Marrakech, Marrakech Tensift El Haouz, Morocco
Riad AnaYela is a 300 year-old palace and luxury riad in the heart of
the Marrakech medina with an extraordinary story behind it. When the
building was renovated in 2007 a small room was discovered behind a wall
that was a later addition to the house and inside there was an old,
dark wooden casket with a silver inlay and a story written in Arabic
calligraphy on a sheet of paper. It was the tale of a 16 year-old girl
called Yela who lived in the house and fell in love with a boy who lived
down the road. At night she would sneak up onto the rooftop to look out
over the skyline of the city and gaze at the stars. The restoration of
the palace took months and all of the work was carried out by hand,
using traditional Moroccan craftsmanship by over 100 artisans including
one of the most renowned calligraphers in Morocco who hammered Yela0‚8s
story in silver on the vast doors throughout the riad.
AnaYela can organise day trips into the Atlas mountains with a driver, a personal shopper to accompany you to the best shops in the souk and help with the haggling and a traditional evening 0‚7soiree0‚8 with live music, middle eastern dancing, snake charmers, soothsayers and a storyteller who will bring the tale of the house alive (in English, German or French). During the winter, you can relax with a mint tea around the open fire blazes in the lounge. If you are clever enough to guess the magic words then you can take a trip on the flying carpet from the rooftop terrace.
Eat breakfast or dinner on the roof terrace, which has a spectacular view thanks to its position as one of the tallest buildings in the old town. There is also an authentic nomad tent with an open fire for barbecues and traditional Moroccan meals can be arranged.
Every single piece of furniture, lighting and other decorative details at Riad AnaYela has all been designed by Bernd Kolb and Tannick Hervy and finished by Moroccan artisans. AnaYela has 3 rooms and 2 suites (with brick-built baths for 2), each individually decorated. The first floor is air-conditioned; the ground floor is a typically Moroccan open-plan design with an inner courtyard and heated swimming pool, which remains cool however hot it gets outside. There is also a large open-plan lounge on the first floor.
