  The Detail...

Since opening its doors in 2004, the majestic El Fenn has grown in both size and stature. This colourful and characterful hotel now occupies a clutch of Marrakech riads within a 5-minute walk of the citys Jemaa el Fna square the beating heart of daily life around these parts. Displaying the decorative touch of local artisans throughout, El Fenn offers a truly relaxing atmosphere amidst the bustle Marrakech is famed for.

El Fenn has no less than 3 swimming pools, including one on the rooftop a terrace which has some of the most enviable views in town. Set your sights on the Atlas mountains or the beautiful Koutoubia Mosque close by. You wont find a TV or phone in your room, but you wont miss those the courtyards and scented gardens provide tranquil spaces to relax and dine, or you could head for the private cinema, library or spa, with its enticing array of traditional treatments.

So atmospheric are the hotels open spaces, its no surprise El Fenn is a popular choice for weddings, birthdays and special occasions, with the team ready and able to rustle up everything from pianists to DJs and belly dancers to give your event that special, and sometimes exotic, touch. El Fenns staff and their service are legendary - youll be feeling at home as soon as you arrive and are likely to miss them when you leave.

With more than 20 impressive rooms and suites, all air-conditioned and exuding Moroccan style, the comfort at El Fenn is second-to-none. Check out the spacious Imperial Suites with fireplace, lounge, roll-top bath and monsoon shower, and the Private Pool Suites with their own sun terraces The Sunday Times put one of them in its Top 10 Sexiest Hotel Rooms, you know. For larger groups, theres separate accommodation in the vicinity in two 4-bedroom houses they have the same design flair of the main El Fenn building and use of all its facilities too.

Something else youre sure to remember is the incredible food and drink you enjoyed in Marrakech, and El Fenn do it so well. Whether its afternoon tea in the courtyard, a rooftop breakfast or dinner served beneath the stars, the range of local and European cuisine on offer is as impressive as the dcor of the centrepiece restaurant. You can even learn to cook with El Fenns expert chefs, after a guided tour of the local market to gather your ingredients. Dont miss out on cocktails by the pool either, another must-do experience.

All this is just minutes away from the centre of Marrakech, making your tour of the citys sights all the easier if you can tear yourself away from El Fenn, deservedly an attraction in its own right.
