Home to the most Instagrammable pool in Marrakech, a shimmering, aquamarine rectangle lined with traditional zellige mosaic tiling, Riad Yasmine dubs itself a home away from home.

Simplicity reigns in the rooms, where bejmat tiled floors, carved stucco arches and tadelakt walls display Moroccan craftsmanship. On the rooftop terrace, the medina views include both the Medersa Ben Youssef and Koutoubia minarets dotting the cityscape.

Located in Bab Taghzout, the main sights and souks are a bit of a walk, but this does give the riad a more peaceful atmosphere than those further into the medina.

Surrounding area

Inside, visitors enjoy an oasis-like ambiance, while outside the neighbourhood is abuzz with local markets and shops. The main roads nearby do mean donkey carts and scooters whizzing past fairly constantly, alongside locals going about daily life.
