Fodor's Review

Walking through the heavy door that opens into Riad Enija is like stepping into a fairy tale: sculptures, Italian lamps, carved doors, and unique handmade furnishings make this home more of a living gallery than a guesthouse, and visitors return again and again. Owners Ursula and Bjorn have blended their personal collection of contemporary fine art and design with the traditional architecture of this former home of a Fez silk trader. Two magnificent riads, each with a

central courtyard, are linked by a stunning corridor hung with handmade tasseled lamps, paintings, armoires, and sofas strewn with a rainbow of bright cushions. The color scheme is bold—purples, pinks, peacock blue, with vases of fresh flowers. One courtyard is a jungle of plants and trees, with an alcove for dining, while the other features an Indian-themed pool bordered with centuries-old pillars imported from Rajasthan. Large rooms have fans and high ceilings; the luxuriously spacious bathrooms are works of art in themselves, with sunken baths, tiles, brass candlesticks, and tadelakt finishes. A spa offering massage and herbal treatments completes the idyll.

Great Location & Perfect Setting

After walking the streets and fighting your way through the souks, it was a magical experience to enter the Riad. The food was great and prices were fair for what you received

Out of this world!

I have had post holiday blues since returning from my beloved Enija one month ago! I think about this holiday several times a day. It is my dying wish that others should visit this place before they die! My husband & I had this riad recommended to use when i posted a message on the message board, and Michael left me an excellent reply as he was a travel journalist & had just completed a recent trip to Marrakech & he strongly recomended that we stayed

here & I'm so glad that we did! It was our 15th wedding anniversary and a second honeymoon as it was our first trip without our little darlings in 7 years. The attention to detail is unbelivable and the owners are always on hand to answer any questions. I just loved her outlook on life, by not having a offical reception desk, you are warmly welcomed into the heart of the riad by coming into the kitchen to seek assistence. Nothing is too much trouble, and we were throughly spoiled in our week.Without giving too much away I would strongly adivise a stay here, I did want to stay at la Mamounia, but so glad that I didn't as when we visited it, there was just a sea of people everywhere. With 550 rooms at the hotel what do you expect! I had been spoilt with just 8 rooms with more on ther way I'm assured making it to 10 and a roof top swimming pool almost complete, I feel the need to revisit...........very soon!!

Beautiful, but expensive

We had a lovely stay in March, 2001. The location was perfect and the staff very friendly. Still, if we were to go again, we would probably chose another riad. The prices, especially for the meal, were extremely high for the area.
