About El Fenn
Moroccan decor is in full force at El Fenn, a boutique hotel with 28 individually styled rooms in bustling Morocco. African flair’s created through hand-crafted throws, artisan-carved dark wood furnishings and locally sourced, brightly coloured accessories. Its exotic decor is reminiscent of riads, with a modern twist.
With 28 individually styled rooms and suites, tree-filled courtyards, a 7000ft2 roof terrace and a family of resident tortoises, El Fenn is the perfect retreat from which to enjoy Africa’s most exotic city. Combining grandeur and historic architecture with hideaway nooks, terraces and gardens, the hotel is just five minutes walk from the world-famous Djemaa el Fna square and bustling maze of streets that make up the souk.
In 2002 Vanessa Branson and Howell James were looking for a holiday home and walked into the almost ruined courtyard of one of Marrakech’s formerly great private homes. Nearing dusk and with the sound of the muezzin’s call to prayer echoing in the air, they instantly fell in love with the atmospheric house. They soon realised that their holiday home was going to become so much more.Visit El Fenn
