Carved cedar ceilings, original tiling, locally-made furniture and authentic artefacts. El Fenn is a quintessentially Moroccan riad, with a contemporary twist, in the heart of historic Marrakech.

The rooftop plunge pool of El Fenn is the perfect place to enjoy Marrakech’s skyline and take a relaxed, retrospective view of your day spent in the city’s vibrant souk, alleyways and grand square. From the pool you can see the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, and hear a muezzin call the faithful to prayer. Which is your signal to saunter off and enjoy a cocktail in El Fenn’s stylish bar.

As part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Morocco, El Fenn is indispensable. It puts you in the heart of wonderful Marrakech, whilst offering you a place of serene tranquillity, of style and panache. Not to mention history; El Fenn was once one of Marrakech’s great private homes and retains much of its grace and atmosphere.
