This was our second visit to Quaryati and we will definitely be returning again.
A beautiful oasis of calm and tranquility, it's the perfect place to relax and recharge. The setting and beautiful grounds are complemented by the hardworking and friendly staff, and Françoise, the owner's warm welcome. They accommodated my birthday during our stay with a special breakfast, and a cake during our evening meal.
There is a free daily shuttle to Marrakech, so you can combine a peaceful getaway with time sightseeing and haggling in the souks. Having stayed solely in riads in the Medina on my first trip to Marrakech, staying at Quaryati is the best of both worlds. We went into the city once during this trip and fun though it was, it was lovely to get back out into the countryside afterwards.
We went specifically to relax, enjoy the Moroccan sunshine and lounge by the pool, but Quaryati is equally a good base for many daytrips, to the Atlas Mountains, the desert or the coast.
There is a hammam on site, and I thoroughly recommend trying a hammam and a massage, I feltamazingly relaxed after trying out both. The food is fantastic, a well executed Moroccan-French fusion, and the wine and 3 course evening meals were so good that plenty of walking around the countryside and swimming were required to offset them. Bikes can also be borrowed.
I love this place. I didn't want to come home and can't wait to go back.
