Magical Marrakech is one of the world’s most fashionable destinations. Welcome to Riad Star a vibrant Riad hotel in the heart of the Red City. A one-time residence of vaudeville star, hero of the French resistance, and civil rights pioneer, Josephine Baker, Riad Star is a celebration of the human spirit.
Our guests love the intimacy of the Riad with just thirteen bedrooms and an attentive staff on hand to help you make the most of your stay.
The heart of the property is a classic Marrakech Riad courtyard complete with a dipping pool, a fountain, an open Moroccan seating area and a dining room with a stunning feature fireplace. You can look forward to home-cooked meals and one of the best breakfasts in Morocco served at the time of your choice.
A second courtyard provides an airy open space, ideal for activities such as yoga or meetings and events. We even have the option of covering each patio with its own secret rolling roof, guaranteeing the success of your stay in all weathers.
We are exceptionally proud of the Riad Star Cookery School where Chef Ramsay cooked Christmas dinner for the 2019 Gordon Gino and Fred Christmas Road Trip. Take a half day course learning authentic moroccan dishes, your personal connection to a culinary heritage that dates back to the founding of Marrakech in the 11th century. You will learn to prepare two seasonal starters and a main course.
The stunning roof terrace offers three private seating areas, an outdoor fireplace, and loungers to soak up the Marrakech sun.
On a clear day the views of the Atlas Mountains are breathtaking.
Best of all is the Riad’s hammam and massage Spa, the ultimate Marrakech luxury just a few short steps from the comfort of your room.
Riad Star offers extremely versatile accommodation. All rooms can be double or twin, and most can be triples making the Riad perfect for groups of friends. We have three sets of interconnecting rooms: the Josephine & Star Rooms; the Peace & Liberty Rooms; and the Grace & Harmony Rooms. The Ebony and Ivory suites, which can sleep up to five or six people are also great for families.
