Riad Yasmine is our new obsession. Admittedly, partly because our fav Insta-bloggers @ohhcouture and @angelicablick were recently snapped at the ultra-chic boutique hotel in Marrakesh. But also because it's genuinely divine. The Moroccan paradise has just seven suites, and each features free wifi, premium bedding with optional privacy curtains, fireplaces, fresh flowers, on-demand fresh mint green tea, and tasty, daily breakfast.
The entire building is awash with contemporary Moroccan decor, drawing inspiration from traditional architecture but adding modern touches. The hotel’s stunning courtyard pool is the star of the show (see below photos ASAP), but the on-site salon and spa further melts away your stress. The rooftop terrace features sweeping views that include the Koutoubia mosque, the Ben Youssef Madrasa (a dazzling Islamic college), and the (sometimes) snow-capped Atlas Mountains. While you’re soaking in that breathtaking view, you can enjoy a drink from the bar and some barbecue.
Speaking of which, the reservation-only restaurant serves lunch and dinner, and you won’t be disappointed. You will be treated to Moroccan dishes like chicken tajine with candied lemons or harira soup with couscous. The entire menu is artfully crafted with fresh and local ingredients, and prepared by pro-chef Nadia.
Rates start at 105 € ($109 USD) per night, so you aren’t even breaking the bank. So, immerse yourself in contemporary Moroccan style at Riad Yasmine in Marrakesh, and be sure to Instagram it. Then get on with exploring the stunning sights and colors of Marrakesh.
