OVERVIEW \ 18th Century traditional riad starting at $145
A quiet oasis in the centre of the bustling medina, Kitula is a beautiful 18th Century traditional riad with a swimming pool surrounded by a lush palm-filled courtyard garden. The historic building was once part of Kalif's Palace, and is just a short walk from the Bab el Ksour entrance to the medina, perfect for exploring Jema el Fna square and the fascinating souks. Relax in the shade of the cool palms and take advantage of the pool bar, or enjoy a cozy nook in the media room or library. Better yet, take advantage of the rooftop terrace at sunset to feel the last of the day's warm rays. This stunning riad has everything you could want for your Marrakech experience.
The 5 spacious suites are all beautifully decorated in a neutral palette with added warm through stunning textiles, antique furniture and wood accents. The rooms range in size, some accommodating up to 4 people. Our favorite is the Ensuite, a large bright suite with 2 king size bedrooms that occupies the entire second floor and shares a bathroom furnished with elegant 1930's vintage fittings.
The food is incredible - a mix of Moroccan, English and French cuisine. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are made with the freshest ingredients from their organic gardens in Lagoon Lodge.
