RIAD JONA  | Marrakech Medina

Situated in the centre of the medina a few minutes south of the famous Jemaa El Fnaa square, Riad Jona is a beautiful riad with a great team of staff and an owner with a real flair for presentation.  It has a pretty patio with a heated plunge pool and jacuzzi on the roof terrace that makes it a very desirable accommodation. The magnificent studded wooden door opens onto a world of magic, especially if you arrive after dark. You will be impressed by the ambient lighting and aromas as well as by the elegant outfits and welcoming demeanour of the staff.
