RIAD SNAN13 – THE HIDDEN JEWEL IN MARRAKECH

Anson Low No Comments

It was an unusual feeling the moment I walked into Riad Snan13, it was almost magical. I was welcomed by the utmost serenity and tranquility with the calm pool and clean interior design.

I also love the touch of pale peach roses in the bowl. It’s one of the cutest decorative home accessory I’ve seen for a long time.

If you want to indulge yourself with the discreet essence of the rich culture of Marrakech, Riad Snan13 would be perfect for you. The interior design of Riad Snan13 is more monochromatic in comparison to most of the riad’s rich colours & decoration such as bold paintings and patterned tiles.

The hanging Moraccan lamp shade gives a bold statement in the monochromatic beige room complementing the simplicity of the interior of the Le Petit Patio. From the wooden stool to the brass mirror, Riad Snan13 enjoys playing with the materials and shapes of furniture rather than their pattern.

I was in love with the turquoise colour (with grey tone) of their doors and windows too in the entire riad too. They complement so well with everything else that somehow give the surrounding a calming factor.

This is definitely my favourite lounging area in the riad. I like the music that the host plays too! I’ve spent quite some time in this space for my editing – it was so calming indeed! The statement GIANT lamp shade plus the bold chairs with pop of colourful cushions – some serious styling skill here!

There is a roof top dining area where the breakfast will be served to enjoy the morning sun too!

Or if you want to read a book on a day bed instead? 🙂

Please visit Riad Snan13 for more information on the hotel and book it for your Marrakech trip! For those who love monochromatic interior design and searching for tranquility in Marrakech, this is your choice!

A HIDDEN LUXURY DESIGN HEAVEN AT RIAD MENA, MARRAKECH

Anson Low No Comments

Marrakech is a busy city surrounded by narrow and bustling streets (and slightly dangerous too with their impatient motorcyclists), but you will never guess what’s behind the door of each building. It seemed ordinary when I arrived at the door front of Riad Mena, but after walking through it and passing the corridors, it took me to the interior design heaven in Marrakech, Morocco.

The giant trees and plants made it the best courtyard I have ever been to. The moment I walked into the Grant Suite, I was shocked by the size of the entire space. It was huge but I certainly did not feel emptiness in the room with the strategically organized furniture and decorations. One of my favourite pieces were the giant olive green bedside table lamps that give a nice touch to the predominantly white room.

I love the Menzeh in this Grand Suite overlooking the gorgeous courtyard. I took a nap there after having a glass of the Moroccan mint tea (with sugar!). It was rather relaxing afternoon for me – after a long day of photoshoot.

One of the coolest design feature in this Grand Suite at Riad Mena is the shelving units on the wall. The robust and raw aesthetic go well with any decorative accessories and books. And there are plenty of sitting area for you to read a book (or two) too!

What’s better than having a relaxing bath to compose yourself after a long day of travelling? And top it up by opening the doors that lead you to your private terrace – all by yourself!

Riad Mena also has a pool for you to have your morning swim or to cool down in the day surrounded by beautiful plants!

My first visit in Marrakech, Morocco has been amazing especially to start my journey in this gorgeous Riad Mena with the excellency in hospitality. The founder of Riad Mena, Philomena Schurer Merckoll has managed to transform this traditional Moroccan house into a modern boutique hotel that consists of 7 very stylish rooms. I would be visiting again in the future without a doubt!

Please visit Riad Mena for more information on the hotel and book it for your Marrakech trip! For those who love interior design and a bit of luxury, this is your choice! P/S: I love the aubergine and Lamb Tagine served by Riad Mena – make sure you request that to try!
