The charming Hotel Sahrai from Fez, Morocco

Updated on

Penned down by French designer Christophe Pillet, hotel Sahrai is a stunning five-star hotel located in Fez, Morocco that allows guests to enjoy spectacular views of the largest medina in the Arab world, taking in twelve centuries of the city’s history in one fell swoop.

Providing luxury accommodations and a completely new hotel experience in Fez, this stunning location represents an alternative to the shady isolation of the riads and the impersonal feel of the big resorts. Featuring an architecture that mixes tradition with contemporary style, Hotel Sahrai seems like the ideal place to enjoy Morrocan splendor and intimacy.

Located on the former site of Marshal Lyautey’s summer palace, the design of this luxurious hotel represents a homage to the old façade and revisits the distinctive motif of the great arches that once welcomed travelers.

Behind them, fifty spacious rooms along with the comfort of two restaurants, a rooftop bar opening onto the panoramic terrace, and an exclusive Givenchy spa await to make your every wish come true.

The entire interior and exterior decor was specifically designed for the hotel, combining classic design notes with a sophisticated take on local traditions.

Zellige pools, carved plaster and local stone cladding, Fassi ceramics and copper lanterns provide subtle references throughout the space, which also includes bespoke furniture, such as the Sahrai line designed by Christophe Pillet and now produced by Living Divani.

The Hotel Sahrai is the perfect location to bask in the sun that warms the panoramic infinity pool throughout the day.
