The story of the Riad Anya

This is the story of wonderful encounters and the desire to get to know Morocco better, and specifically Marrakesh. Hamed became our general contractor and a close friend. He allowed us to realise our dream by offering this location in the Sidi Mimoun quarter, where our best neighbour is the King Mohamed VI. After 13 months of work, from the first pickaxe to the renovation of the riad, on October 7, 2007, we received our first guest.


10 years

Today is a big day for us. 15 years ago we received our first guests. For this anniversary, we have made a video to mark this occasion and highlight our staff, who threw themselves into this not so simple task. Don’t hesitate to share this video with your friends on Facebook if you’re on social media. Yours truly, Annie, jean luc , Jamila, Aicha ,Sanna, Hafida et Barak
