In 2004, El Fenn Riad was transformed from an abandoned traditional palace into an elegant boutique hotel by art gallery owner, Vanessa Branson. Away from the agitation of the medina, come enjoy the flamboyant colours of this Moroccan architectural gem. Walk down the vermeil corridor and prepare for the most relaxing stay: sleek suites and rooms invite you to meditate, while the spa, pools, screening room and garden provide leisure and entertainment. Sheltered from the city's heart-beat, the El Fenn Riad will encourage you to lounge on the fluffy banquettes on the roof top, carried away by birds singing. A cross between a Moroccan palace and an art gallery, the hotel displays Francis Upritchard art pieces, Terence Donovan photos and light fixtures by Batoul S'Himi. Give into the delightful serenity… the Atlas mountains are watching over you.
