I was beholding the beautiful sight of the city of Medina, struggling to grasp more and more when the car first pulled over in front of Hotel Riad Esprit Du Maroc. The sight of this temporary habitat was the harbinger of the feeling that this place is going to stay in my mind for my whole life. The moment we got there we were helped by the highly obliging and accommodating crew and we were smoothly ushered to the superior double rooms.
In the room we were welcomed by the height of a spectacular view a room can have, It was more like the ones described in the novels but I was making sure I am not engulfed by the scope of imagination this place was offering me. Before my eyes stretched a long sitting area, a king sized bed and at my far sight was the patio offering the view of the beloved city. I remember that I was always collecting enough time to spend it on the balcony and do justice to the beauty it had to offer. It was like some of those places where you have a cup of coffee and reminisce about life, a place with immense peace, the kind of peace that could not be found anywhere else. These are the very rare sentiments and I share them with very few hotels but I guess this hotel made its place quite well in my sentiments. The whole view remains etched to my mind and the pleasantness of which enchants my life.
The mornings were the best because the breakfast was served on the rooftop yes! Isn’t that the dream? Everything was placed there in an unparalleled way, probably the best blend of traditional and modern way complemented by the blissful morning that was the ecstatic beyond measure.
All my enraptured voyages in the hallways of the hotel kept me in awe for most of the time. The hallways are built in a special way, a kind you mostly see in the TV shows depicting the high class of Victorian ages. The fountain the pool everything there is a sight itself and when all these sights combine; the eyes are not able to behold the aesthetics.
The pool and SPA have their own way. You are free to take a dip anytime in the pool that has incomparable qualities. The most exhilarating thing about this place was the number and types of massages they offered. I got the one with Black soap scrub with Eucalyptus argan. They offered cooking classes, slimming plans dance classes and what not.
This place is the heart of Medina in Marrakech not only because of the virtues this place has but also geographically. It connects you to all the tourist attractions in the vicinity. During our stay there we had plenty of time to discover the city and we were able to save adequate time for spending in the hotel, for the place where time passed in a different and soothing way. In my experience, this place was something out of the world perhaps the highest ideal of an earthly bliss considering the hotels.
