Best Luxury Hotels In Fes

Dating back to the 9th century, Fes (or Fez) is home to the largest medina in North Africa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once the capital of Morocco, it has a rich heritage and is a thriving cultural hub, often maze-like, with thousands of winding alleys and the largest pedestrianised urban area on earth. Fes’ pungent tanneries are a must-see part of any trip here, as is the Royal Palace and at least one of its vibrant, colourful souks. Fez is home to a selection of exquisite luxury hotels, and upmarket Riads, that seamlessly blend traditional Moroccan charm and unique history with modern extravagance.

Karawan Riad

(5 stars)

With just seven suites, each uniquely furnished, this riad feels intimate and exclusive. Its French owners display a range of antiques and artwork throughout, depicting their African travels. The building itself had a former life as a harem in the 17th century, with a traditional marble fountain at its centre and a terrace on the roof. Now it has a restaurant, hammam, spa, lounge and library. Some of the bedrooms include sunken stone baths and secluded private terraces. Karawan Riad is ideal for a grown-up getaway – children under 12 are not permitted to stay – with its elegant and refined atmosphere.
