Beautifully restored turn-of-the-century palace, with a citrus grove courtyard in a quiet corner of Fez’s medina
Riad-style romance. A meticulous three-and-a-half-year renovation enhanced the century-old palace with calligraphy, copperwork and embroidery stitched by local artisans. Moroccan wooden furniture, handwoven rugs and colorful ceramics are found throughout the communal areas and ornate staircases. In the center of the property is a citrus- and jasmine-scented courtyard garden, where little more than birdsong and the fountain’s gentle tinkling disturb the silence.
Bed and Bath
Several of the 14 spacious rooms and suites are split-level, and all share ornate tilework and lofty, carved-wood beam ceilings. Original artwork and beds with crisp, hand-embroidered linens sit harmoniously alongside such high-tech gadgets as Bose sound systems, flat-screen TVs and preloaded iPods. The state-of-the-art bathrooms have large tubs or tiled rain showers and are stocked with natural aromatic bath products.
Enjoy a lavish breakfast of homemade breads, yogurt, fresh juice, fruit salad and pancakes beneath the courtyard’s canopy of orange blossoms. The exquisitely tiled Art Deco restaurant serves Mediterranean-influenced lunch and, for dinner, such three-course dishes as the flavorsome beef, pea and artichoke tagine. For an aperitif, opt for a cocktail while overlooking the medina from the rooftop terrace. Post souk-shopping, head to the spa to be scrubbed, soaped and massaged into a state of total relaxation in the steamy heat of the hammam.
