Contrary to popular belief travellers are 9 times more likely to crave unique rather than pampered experiences.

We say: Have both in Marrakech – experience a unique and authentic stay in a riad in Marrakech AND be pampered – better than a 5 star hotel.

38% of global travellers – including 61% of UK travellers – expand their diets to include new foods from their travels.

We say: Try out fabulous Moroccan cuisine – a rising star in international cuisine – http://www.riadsapphire.com/blog/rise-of-moroccan-food.htm
