A hidden sanctuary with traditional Moroccan flair

In the heart of the old medina in the city of Marrakech, hidden in the winding alleyways sit the intricately restored 18th century Riad Kniza.  Beautifully decorated the Riad Kniza oozes Moroccan authenticity.  With only 11 rooms and suites, its homely style and warm service will ensure you're stay is more than comfortable.

Explore the city and its cultural hotspots. The famous Jema l'Fina Square, enticing souks and monuments are only a few minutes walk away and the new modern city is just a short distance too. After a day of exploring the old and new retreating Riad Kniza offers exquisite gastronomy in a stunning location, either under the stars on the roof terrace, or surrounded by Moroccan antiques.  The pool, hammam and spa are ideal for refreshment and rejuvination before your next exploration. 

  • Traditional Riad with luxury surroundings
  • Ideal location to explore the city

Amazing experience!

Really good place to stay in, with amazing staff and hospitality. I really enjoyed my time here. I also tried excellent traditional tagine so I can FOR SURE recommend the restaurant too. It is an oasis in the vast and chaotic Marrakech.

A little corner of paradise

London, United Kingdom

We stayed at Riad Knox’s for a family celebration. The riad is an absolute gem. Stunning, beautifully restored and had a real sense of calm and tranquility the moment you stepped over the threshold. The Riad Is family run and they set a wonderful tone. The staff are without exception warm, charming, efficient and friendly. The food is delicious and always fresh prepared. The hammam a real treat and the roof top terrace is elegant and lovely place to start and end the day. One of us has stayed here before and returned to share the joy of discovering such a wonderful place with mum and sister. Many thanks to all.
