Riad El Fenn is a large town house perfectly located on the edge of the Medina of Marrakech, Close to the Bab El Ksour gate, it is just 20 minutes from the airport, yet only a five minute walk from the heart of the city, the main square of Jemma El Fna. Built like a fortress, the ancient walls of the riad are over a metre thick, providing an oasis of beauty and peace in the midst of the noise and bustle of the medina.
Respecting the historical importance of the house, it has been restored to the highest of standards with love and attention to detail. Within these ancient walls you will find everything you need for a wonderful stay in Marrakech, whether you just want to relax and unwind, or have a base from which to explore the delights of the city and the surrounding area. With 21 luxuriously appointed rooms, three pools, a spa, private cinema, bar and restaurant, secret terraces and magnificent colonnades, Riad El Fenn has everything you could possibly need, and more.
One of our secrets is to have an abundance of private areas around the house, for reading, eating, drinking, sunbathing, or snoozing. The lush gardens of the terrace and courtyards attract a mass of songbirds and also offer plentiful privacy, the two high colonnades, the snug salon with its open fire and its 'moucharabia' window overlooking the courtyard. The magnificent terrace is the place to pass the day. Huge and comfortable with a vast shaded soft seated area high above the city, a rose and organic herb garden, daybeds, corners to make your own and a good sized plunge pool. It has the best views in town, a panorama of the Atlas mountains and Marrakech's beautiful mosque, the koutoubia. At dusk the city lights up and glows around you - you can see the steam rising from the food stalls in the square - and then the moon rises.
