Are you one of those curious who see thousands of pictures and stories told by the most adventurous? Or would you dare once and for all to fulfill your dreams and become who you have always wanted to be?
Dear explorers, today we want to tell you about the best Riads in our planet (or, at least, a list with some of the most special…). They are so unique that will undoubtedly take your breath away. Are you ready for it? Here we go…
This incredible Moroccan Riad dates back from the 18th century and was completely restored in 2019 by two Italian businesswomen, who decided to settle down in the city of Marrakech, with the purpose of finding the property of their dreams to carry out their “Alkemia Project”.
It should be noted this Riad still preserves the architectural elements from the local atmosphere of the region, which inspires lovers of this famous city.
Riad Alkemia has 7 spacious rooms and 6 bathrooms. It accommodates only groups and provides them with an exclusive stay, with a team completely dedicated to its guests. It currently offers the possibility of hosting a group of up to 14 people and provides extra services that feature a special experience and total disconnection.
Are there any other aspects bringing attention on this Riad?
It is certainly invaluable that this lodging has eco-friendly practices. The Riad Alkemia seeks to contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint and they see themselves as environmentalists.
Actions such as buying organic detergents, ingredients for meals from local farms in the city, and encouraging guests to donate clothes they do not want to use, ensuring that they are delivered to those who really need them are some of the actions that are carried out here.
Which activities and/or places can be found near this Riad?
Luckily, Riad Alkemia is very well located, and just a few minutes away you can find a varied list of places to visit. For example, 10 minutes from the Riad is the Jemaa el-Fna square, being the most famous main spot in the Moroccan city.
