Cobblestone Private Travel

Riads and Kasbahs


Riads, kasbahs, palaces, and hotels: the choices for accommodation in Morocco can be dizzying. Let us design an itinerary that incorporates the right mix of properties, from the authentic to the uber-luxurious. Our long relationships with the top properties in Morocco also often result in special attention and unexpected surprises for our guests.

Many visitors to Morocco choose to spend at least a few nights in a riad because it offers a more authentic experience that a hotel simply cannot match. The word riad can be used to describe anything from a traditional Moroccan home to a palace and can be located in the city or the desert; though the level of opulence can vary greatly, all of them generally have an interior courtyard and garden. Cobblestone’s long relationships with the top riads in Morocco ensure that our guests are treated with the utmost care, whether you are looking for a grand getaway or a more traditional Moroccan feel.

Spend a few nights at the Villa des Orangers, a short walk (but a world away) from Marrakech’s sprawling Djemma el Fnaa, or La Mamounia, with its acres of gardens and rich history. Enjoy the quiet solitude and magnificent views of the Atlas Mountains from the restored 19th century Kasbah Dar Ahlam. For more of a deluxe resort experience, the Amanjena, the Mandarin Oriental and the Royal Mansour offer unparalleled luxury and excellent spas. Cobblestone’s insider knowledge means recommending not only the right property, but the exact floor and suite that will result in an optimum visit.


Cobblestone recommends: A late afternoon swim in Villa des Oranger’s rooftop pool; the view of La Mamounia’s lush gardens from your terrace;  A sunset drink as the call to the evening prayer echoes around you on the rooftop terrace at Palais Amani or Riad Fes.
