Embedded deep in the jumble of passageways that make up Fez’s mystical medina, Riad Fès fuses sumptuous décor, old-world serenity and smart luxury.
Built in the 1930’s in a Moroccan-Andalucian style, Riad Fès is the largest and smartest of converted riads in the city—actually enclosing two grand houses.
The finest craftsmanship tradition underlines the astonishing attention to detail running throughout the hotel’s design. Every square inch of this traditional riad is stamped with the hallmarks of Morocco’s exquisite art and design heritage.
Andalous opulence and minimalist luxury
The two self-contained houses have distinct design aesthetics. Grand and traditional, the old riad invites guests to travel back in time: in Alhambra-style courtyard, where the arched stucco doorways and sweeping pillars seem to glow with natural light, in Baroque design details, in Moorish art, antique pieces and luxurious contemporary furnishings.
The palatial two-storey court, furnished with red sofas and a grand piano, is at the center of the old riad. Decorated with a gorgeous stuccowork, its massive columns rise to the translucent roof. Historical opulence characterizes the rooms, featuring intricate carved furniture, mosaic and a heavy stained-glass.
A glass doors leads to the second house—which could not have been more different. Crisp, sleek, chic: it’s a world of serene minimalism. The luxurious and spacious rooms follow suit.
This artful combination of classic and contemporary luxury works together to produce some of Fez’s finest places to stay.
Dine, cool off and pamper
Riad Fès offers several options for dining in: L’Ambre, which serves a mediterranean fusion cuisine, L’Oriental inviting to relish traditional local food—as well as the outdoor areas, around the pool or on the roof terrace, with truly amazing views of the ancient city and surrounding hills.
Then there is the l’Alcazar Bar, by the courtyard pool: great place to chill out with a delicious cocktail… or two.
Take off the heat with a dip in the patio garden swimming pool—or take a time off in the hammam for a body treatment with black soap and ghassoul, a massage or a beauty treatment.
