Here is the call of the Muezzin who sings to salute the passing day and welcome the new one.
WHAT WE OFFER TO YOU
Living in Marrakech also means discovering its roofs. A characteristic that makes this a very special place is, in fact, the large number of terraces, real hidden treasures that offer glimpses on the city and the surrounding landscape, and are always full of life and activities.
During the day, Jaune Safran’ terrace will be the place to sunbathe or relax under the shadow of the pergola. In the evening, it becomes a tranquil spot where you can talk and sip a drink while admiring the sunset. On request, it can be transformed into a magical setting, perfect for a romantic dinner under the stars, where lights, colours, shapes and perfumes blend with each other and provide you with a truly unforgettable experience.
The terrace, decorated with plants and flowers, lanterns and coloured pillows, offers you comfortable sunbeds with towels, a shady pergola and a shower.
Moroccan cuisine creates nourishing dishes, both rich and delicate, with highly aromatic well-balanced aromas, the result of the fusion of history and culture of different civilizations: Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean and Arab.

When Abu Sir was assured that there was no hot bath in the city and that the folk knew nothing of hot baths and rubbing, he went to the King’s Divan and said: “Today I wished to visit the hammam of your city, but none could tell me the way or even understand the word. It is very astonishing that a beautiful city like yours should have no hammam, for a hammam is the chief ornament and centre of delight in any city.
In fact, the hammam is an earthly paradise.” “But what is this hammam of which you speak?” asked the astonished King. “I have never heard of it.” Then he expounded in great detail all the qualities, advantages, and pleasures of a hammam, adding: “Your city will never be truly perfect until it has a hammam.” From: The Arabian Nights – The tale of Abu Kir and Abu Sir.
Riad Jaune Safran offers its guests a visit to the private hammam. So, enjoy yourself with a relaxing steam bath and massage and other beauty treatments after a dusty city tour.
