Insider's View

Hotel Sahrai has one of only three Givenchy spa’s in the world

The French restaurant, "Real de Paris," is the best table in the city; ask to have your meal by the infinity pool as the sun sets.

The Sahrai is the perfect choice for a guest preferring the extra space (and swimming pool) afforded by being located away from the crowds and bustle of the walled city.

Sip a cocktail on the rooftop, overlooking the Medina of Fes as the sun sets in the background and a DJ plays international tunes - A very cool place to be seen.

Description

Hotel Sahrai is a new high-end boutique property opened by the owners of the famous Riad Fes. Unlike its sister property, it's located outside the medina. It therefore has space for a lovely outdoor terrace and pool with views over this fascinating city.

Located on the edge of Fes, overlooking the bustling medina, the new Hotel Sahrai is a fashionable and comfortable hotel located in an enviable spot outside the busy streets of the old city. The Sahrai's name is derived from the Arabic word for magic. Although the style is contemporary, Paris-based designer Christophe Pillet has modelled the building with Moroccan tradition in mind: Arabesque patterns and arched pavilions lead through atmospheric public spaces.

The pool and bar offer spectacular views of the historic cityscape and the Atlas Mountains beyond, making the terrace a popular spot for well to do locals and tourists alike to enjoy the panorama as they enjoy a coffee of mint tea in the afternoon or an evening cocktail or glass of wine.
