RIAD EL ZOHAR | Marrakech Medina

Located in the antique dealers’ district in the heart of the ancient Medina only 5 minutes' walk from the souks and the main square, Riad El Zohar is a romantic small riad that was carefully restored by a writer and artist to emphasise its many beautiful features. A subsequent upgrade has provided modern comforts, which include a large elongated plunge pool (notably larger than the pools in most riads of this size), a lovely roof terrace with superb views, attractive dining room and first floor sitting room. Evening meals or lunch are made to order and wine and beer are available.
