Under a newly created Moroccan hotel management group, Moivaro Morocco, UK tour operator Specialist Morocco, in association with the Moivaro Lodge & Tented Camp group of Tanzania have taken on the overall management, sales, marketing and operations of Ryad Lora et Kenza.
A stunning 8-bedroomed property located just five minutes’ walk from Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakech, the riad joins Maison Africa and the Sahara Safari Camp to form an exciting group of mid-market properties in prime locations.
After completion of renovation works and improvements, refit of bathrooms and updating of soft furnishings the riad will be re-launched in December under the name of Riad Africa.
The traditionally-built property has been carefully restored using the finest local materials and decorated with African artefacts. Its central palm-filled courtyard also boasts one of the largest dipping pools in the Medina (some 16 square metres) plus there is a tropical roof terrace with sun beds for relaxation.
The property also has its own hammam and massage room with a range of bookable treatments.
Each of the individually-African themed rooms has air-conditioning, iPod docks and guests have free access to high-speed wireless internet. On arrival, guests are also loaned a local mobile phone free of charge which comes pre-programmed with useful numbers including the riad manager, local taxi companies and popular venues.
