Travel Tuesday | Desert Dreaming - Marrakesh
El Fenn - a restored 19th-century formerly private home in Marrakesh – styled with mid-century modern bold and bright Marrakesh colours, this is one stylish boutique hotel! The 28-roomed property has a tree filled courtyard, three inner courtyards, a huge roof terrace, rose petal-filled basins throughout, cushioned nooks to take a moment, 3 oasis like swimming pools, a restaurant, bar, spa, library and a family of resident tortoises, yes you read that correctly!
El Fenn is a place to kick back and enjoy the tranquillity of incredible architecture and secret hidden spaces before stepping outside to soak up the atmosphere of a bustling and culturally rich city. The hotel is just a five minutes walk from the world-famous Djemaa el Fna square and bustling maze of streets that make up the souk.
The Spa is tucked away in its own serenely shaded courtyard. Take a dip in the spa pool or take a break and lounge alongside it between your luxurious treatments.
And yes they have 3 pools, all which are located in serene and shaded open-air courtyard's. The two large heated pools are lined with Carrara marble and are surrounded by day-beds and a fire-pit which is lit at night for that extra touch of ambience. There is a plunge pool on the rooftop surrounded by lounges and the picturesque views of the Atlas Mountains and the Koutoubia mosque in the distance… could this get any better?
And don’t fret if you missed someone on your present list when it's time to leave, they have their own shop filled with treasures - ‘The little shop’ is located behind the lobby.
