Riad Fes is a luxury boutique hotel at the centre of the Fez Medina in Morocco. The Moroccan owner, an architect by occupation, has a serious eye for style, and the result is a rich blend of opulent styles from around the world. Moorish art, Alhambra-style patios and Baroque design combine in this spacious riad, where antique pieces and luxurious contemporary furnishings have been seamlessly put together. Choose from vast suites or intimate doubles, all decorated with intricately carved wooden furniture, zellige tiles and fine fabrics. This Chic Retreat is in a great position from which to explore the bustling medina, and after a day haggling in the souks and markets, guests can take a cooling dip in the swimming pool and a rejuvenating massage and hammam treatment. This luxury riad also has a fine restaurant serving gourmet Moroccan food and a cosy lounge & bar, a great place to end a busy day in the city. If this wasn't enough, the service is impeccable with a great team of attentive staff.
Riad Fes is divided around 4 patio courtyards, each with a distinctive style. Our favourite is the Baroque Patio, a classy mix of traditional Moroccan architecture and Baroque style with crystal lighting, marble, grey tadelakt and black zellige tiling used to dramatic effect. The roof-top terrace affords panoramic views of the city and the Atlas Mountains, great for sunbathing by day or a romantic evening in. Take off the heat with a swim in the large swimming pool in the patio garden. There is a hammam where guests can have a body treatment with black soap and ghassoul or take a massage or beauty treatment. Fez itself is a remarkable city, with a labyrinthine, ancient medina. Get lost in the souks and make your way to the ancient Kairaouine Mosque and the beautiful Nejarine Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts before head up to the Merenid Tombs at sunset for incredible views over the ancient city. This luxury riad also offers a shuttle service to the Fes Royal Golf Club and staff are happy to arrange other excursions.
There is 1 dining room at Riad Fes. L'Ambre has simple oriental lines and contemporary design and the menu offers traditional Moroccan cuisine with a modern twist and there is a family menu to cater for the kids. The delicious buffet breakfast is also served in L'Ambre.
L'Alcazar Bar is a great place to relax and meet new friends, with a choice of delicious cocktails, cognacs, whiskeys and wines.
