Take the time to just hang out – in style, of course.


Take the time to just hang out – in style, of course. The colourful hammocks in the gorgeous Moroccan courtyard are wonderfully seductive, like the enchanting El Fenn riad itself, housed in a traditional former palace. And the inviting rooftop terrace with a pool and a view of Kotoubia Mosque a mere 5 minute walk away. All good things come in threes, precisely the magical number of swimming pools at El Fenn.

No imaginable comfort has been overlooked: pamper yourself with a traditional body treatment in the El Fenn spa, or kick back and relax in front of a roaring fire in the lounge. For an additional fee, the El Fenn riad team is happy to organize transfers, tours, and workshops that cover topics like photography and calligraphy.

Wake up to a continental breakfast served on the rooftop terrace if you like, and let the restaurant take you on a tour through the world of local delicacies. El Fenn puts on entertaining shows on the hotel stage, and movie night will satisfy even the most avid film buff.

Brightly coloured birds chirp and flutter cheerfully all around, a soothing contrast to the pulse of life outside the palace walls. El Fenn, the best of both worlds for a perfectly harmonious holiday.
