Throughout its 1,000 year history the ancient walled city of Marrakech has been visited by many fabled explorers, perhaps the most famous of which was Ibn Battuta. Located in the heart of Marrakech medina, Riad Explore pays homage to these pioneers of discovery. Today, curious explorers from far and wide are warmly invited to stay at Riad Explore, a charming boutique guest house. Here, guests can experience the same legendary Moroccan hospitality bestowed upon the early pioneers of travel.


Riad Explore is a haven of tranquility in which to escape the mêlée of the medina. Decorated in shades of grey, silver, black and white and adorned with African art this stylish riad has all the amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Take a dip in a palm-fringed plunge pool, laze in the shade of a nomad tent on the roof garden, or enjoy a delicious Moroccan lunch of briouat or pastilla. Once the day is done, retreat to a room styled with tadelakt and zellige for a truly authentic Moroccan feel. Suitable for private groups, Riad Explore can be rented on an exclusive basis with housekeeper, cook and host.
