If you want to hide away from the world, relax, find yourself, read a book, sip a cocktail or three, but still feel like you’re somewhere new, somewhere different and far flung…
…well you could do a lot worse than here.
A Moroccan themed hide away, in the heart of Marrakech but seemingly miles away from the world.
Welcome to the rose scented, velvet clad, sun soaked, El Fenn.
A stylish, bohemian, colourful riad in the old city.
The sort of place that goes to your head!
Unlike our last riad, this place feels huge.
Floor after floor of picture-perfect setups.
A rooftop for breakfasts in the sunrise, and mojitos come sunset.
Pools to lounge beside.
A hundred little corners to discover.

The chic gift shop doubles as a restaurant, serving simple set menus.
And wonderful drinks.
It’s the sort of place where everything takes forever to happen. Which forces you to get out of your city-dweller-now-now-now mentality and actually relax.
Dinner is served at set hours, and there’s no choice of menu.
It’s like being little again!
Breakfasts are served on the roof terrace, surrounded by twittering birds.
Sunbeams from above, gentle music from afar and the waving palms make you feel as though you may be living in a fairytale.
A fairytale with great coffee!
We were spoiled rotten with our own private plunge pool overlooking the busiest part of the city.
Perfect for lazy mornings, before moving back to the terrace for lunch.
Another menu-free feast, perfect for those who eat everything!
There’s so much to see in Marrakech, it would be a crime not to explore.
But for the days you really don’t feel like it?
Well, there’s enough of El Fenn to roam that you won’t feel you have to.

And there’s nowhere quite like your own terrace for watching those terracotta sunsets.
You’ve tera-cotta see them to believe ’em!
