Spirit of the house

Welcome in our historical Palace dating back to the XIXth century.



Riad Mayfez Suites & Spa is a family story, the story of the Laraqui family. But on the spot, it is with the strong support of the Manager, Mrs Houda El Khadir, that Dominique Laraqui officiates as lady of the house, thanks to a team entirely dedicated to the comfort of her guests.

Moulay was born in Casablanca into a family originating from Fez, before studying and building a career in Europe and ultimately in Egypt.

Dominique has been sharing her life between Europe and Riad Mayfez for a dozen years.  Mayfez is the fruit of her imagination and of the cultures that nursed her. But above all,  Mayfez is the culmination of a long love story with Morocco.

Histoire du Riad Mayfez

As for me, fan of the London vibe and nostalgic from the magic of Mary Poppins, I left London reluctantly, with the subprime crises, in 2009. My move out of London, felt to me, as a deep wound. Yet, I am not of the kind to give up, and in both acceptancy and disbelief, I decided that, since I would no longer be living in Mayfair, I will be living in Mayfez!
A pun that later gave its name to the Riad.
