Riad Siwan is the perfect place to hold your special occasion or event. Our huge roof-top terrace, with views across the whole of Marrakech and beyond to the High Atlas Mountains, is ideal for groups of all sizes, whether they are to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a get-together of family or friends, or to host a social gathering for prestigious promotions. (Please note, we are only able to offer the opportunity for promotions if the Riad is rented in its entirety, so as not to disturb other guests.)
Birthdays, anniversaries, family and friends parties.
If you are celebrating a special occasion we will be delighted to organise a personal programme of activities and excursions, whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, or a flight in a hot-air balloon, a night of music, magic and belly dancing, or an off-road adventure into the High Atlas Mountains – in Morocco almost anything is possible! And of course you are invited to make use of all our facilities to make your stay at Riad Siwan one of your most memorable ever.
Riad Siwan is ideally situated for photo shoots, either as a location itself or as a base for photographic forays into the Medina and beyond. We work with highly experienced, English-speaking guides, most of whom were born within the walls of the ancient city, and can recommend the exact location you are looking for.
Riad Siwan can accommodate up to seventeen guests, and is the perfect size and situation for college and university reunions. We offer a full in-house service including the best of traditional Moroccan cuisine and wine, (it’s often a surprise to people how good Moroccan wines are,) and can design a programme of relaxation and entertainment within the walls of the Riad – perhaps learning to belly dance or bring your stress levels down with a massage and body scrub – or make your reservations at Marrakech’s top restaurants. A guided tour through the ancient heart of the Medina, a round of golf at one of the top-level courses close to the city, or an excursion into the High Atlas Mountains, your Dutch hosts, Maryk and Cees van den Berg will be delighted to create a personal programme for your group.
One of the most popular activities for groups is our cooking course, where everyone mixes in – with chef’s glass in hand, of course – under the watchful eye of our splendid cook, Rabia, to create a deliciously typical Moroccan meal. We provide a recipe and a selection of spices for you to take with you to delight your friends by reproducing the meal in your own home.
