The perfect package with flights included

A foodie adventure in the souks and spice markets of Marrakech, with a local tasting tour and cookery class

With Djemaa El Fna Square and Bahia Palace located five minutes from the front door, Riad Marelia offers the perfect respite from the intoxicating madness of the medina. Surrounding the central whitewashed atrium that features trees, a small pool and tables and chairs, you'll find authentic archways leading to seven comfortable rooms and four terraces adorned with pretty foliage.

Bathed in soothing lighting, the riad's interiors are filled with intricate screens and railings, arabic lanterns, octagonal furniture and inviting sofas. Authentic drapes and carpets follow a colour spectrum of ochres, while outside space comprises four terraces offering up panoramic views of the city and surrounding majestic mountains.

Our offer includes a fantastic foodie experience that lets you in on the secrets of Morocco's exotic spice-infused cuisine. Visit the souks and learn to shop and cook like a local in the half-day tajine cookery class included in our three-day offer. Or if you've time to stay for five days, you'll have the chance to discover local hidden shopping gems, learn your spices, see Djemaa El Fna by night and tuck into an authentic Moroccan meal against a backdrop of the famous World Heritage-listed square.
