In the bustle of Marrakech, El Fenn is a tranquil oasis. El Fenn, a stylishly-converted riad, is more like a private home than a hotel, with colorful rooms opening off a series of five courtyards. One of these courtyards is home to the resort’s spa and hammam, which promises traditional beauty rituals with a luxurious twist.
The spa uses products created by Les Sens de Marrakech, with Argan oil as the star ingredient. Found only in Morocco, Argan oil is harvested by women in small co-operatives and is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties; combined with other natural ingredients such as rose water and ghassoul clay, it creates a luxurious and relaxing spa experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
„At El Fenn you can sample a wide range of spa treatments including massage and facial treatments, relax in the hammam, swim in the pool, or enjoy Yoga or Pilates on the rooftop terrace.“
One of the first riads to be converted to a boutique hotel, El Fenn is the expression of its owners’ unique design sensibility. Every room has its own color palette (think pink, turquoise, and others); refurbished by local craftsmen using traditional techniques, and furnished with a unique mix of old and new pieces and seriously fabulous artworks by international and Moroccan artists. Rooms come in different sizes, some even with their own plunge pool. The vibe is free-spirited, and there are no room keys (safes are provided so you can lock away your valuables), or TVs in the rooms – although there is wi-fi.
The many couryards give the hotel an open, airy feel, but to really discover the magic of El Fenn you need to take the lift up to the rooftop terrace for rooftop dining or enjoy the rooftop pool with amazing views. There are also two other marble-lined swimming pools in the hotel, for lap-swimming (or pool-lounging) with a touch of luxury.
We love the yoga session on the rooftop with views of the Koutoubia mosque.
El Fenn is located beside Bab El Ksour on the edge of Marrakech’s Medina, with many local attractions an easy walk away. The rooftop terrace offers fabulous views of the Atlas Mountains.
