The five-star Hotel Sahrai, designed by the architect and designer Christophe Pillet, enjoys spectacular views of the largest medina in the Arab world, taking in twelve centuries of the city’s history in one fell swoop.

Just 2h30 away from Paris, it offers a totally new hotel experience in Fez. An alternative to the shady isolation of the riads and the impersonal feel of the big resorts, its architecture on a human scale is a combination of tradition and contemporary style.

All the volumes convey the total mastery of space and light that distinguishes Christophe Pillet’s work, with a scale and layout that combine splendour with intimacy. Standing on the former site of Marshal Lyautey’s summer palace, the hotel revisits the distinctive motif of the great arches that once adorned the façade of the building that stood here.

Fifty spacious rooms along with the comfort of two restaurants, a rooftop with a bar opening onto the panoramic terrace, and an exclusive Givenchy spa, combined with a traditional hammam and a gym with Technogym equipment.

The entire interior and exterior décor, specifically designed for the hotel, combines classic design codes 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 a perfect starting point to discover all the place’s secrets. It also offers a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle, simply bask in the sun that warms the panoramic infinity pool throughout the day. Derived from the Moroccan word for magic, the name of the Hotel Sahrai makes a beautiful promise – and keeps it.

Awash in natural light, the rooms and suites at Hotel Sahrai imaginatively blur the line between traditional and modern, structure and space, extravagance and simplicity.

Designed with glass-walled bathrooms, layers of sheer curtains allow you to conceal or reveal the different spaces as you desire. Fabrics and paint harmonized in warm grey tones, a headboard in orange ochre leather, stone cladding and sculpted plaster add a touch of softness to a welcoming atmosphere.

The Sahrai Suite is the largest and most luxurious room at Hotel Sahrai. The Suite offers a magnificent lounge area, a dining table, a spacious dressing room, a marble bathroom with shower, bathtub and separate toilet.

Its equipped terrace will allow you to calmly admire the most beautiful view of Fez. Decorated with modern and elegant touches, it offers a multitude of luxurious amenities. Its pure and elegant lines blend harmoniously with the refined and elegant style of Hotel Sahrai.

Framing sweeping views of the Medina and the Mellah, the floor-to-ceiling windows in these rooms offer a dramatic perspective on the city below. The Superior are our largest rooms and provide the ultimate in comfort and luxury. Some suites feature private terrace.

The floor-to-ceiling windows in this room offer beautiful views on the city or the pool and the garden.

The visit of the Medina immerses you in a labyrinth dating from the Medieval period and combines the pleasures of shopping with the discovery of heritage.

The tour takes you on a journey rich in historical discoveries: Medersa Bou Inania, Zaouïa Tijani, souks, Zaouïa of Moulay Idris, the old Dar Batha Palace, BabBoujloud, Nejjarine Museum, the Royal Palace, the Andalusian Mosque, the Quarawiyine Mosque, the Jewish quarter, the tanneries, the potters’ quarter, etc.

Fez is renowned for its craftsmanship, of which the Medina will give you a more than revealing foretaste, allowing you to discover Moroccan woodwork and embroidery through sculpted pieces, silks…

The ramparts of Fez are today the witness, thanks to several restorations, of different periods of construction. Made of adobe, brick or rubble, the ramparts are pierced by several large fortified gates. The Tour of the ramparts invites you to take a drive with a guide to tell you about Fez from the outside, to enjoy the panorama and the sunset from the Merenid tombs…

This day trip begins by crossing an agricultural region of cereals, legumes and olive groves to discover a vast plain containing the ruins of Volubilis, a Roman city from the 1st century of the Christian era.

The experience continues towards the holy city of Moulay Idriss to admire the panorama and the round and white minaret, decorated with verses of the Koran in green mosaics.

Upon arrival in Meknes, you have a magnificent view of the Medina, then the tour of the ramparts with monumental gates dating from the 17th century, the stables (Roua), the granaries (Héri), and the stud farms. An essential stop is the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismaïl, which for a long time was the only mosque that non-Muslims could visit in Morocco.

Arabic calligraphic styles developed from the earliest times of Islam, with the spread of books of all types in the geographical area of dar al-Islam. Calligraphy is highly developed in the arts of Islam, and sometimes even takes on a symbolic value. In literature and poetry, and even in lettering, a reflection of the natural world dates back to the time of the Abbasids.

Arabic calligraphy is generally divided into two easily distinguishable groups: Kufic script, which is characterised by its angular character, and cursive script (naskhi), which is much rounder. With a master calligrapher, you will learn the subtle art of handling the Qallam in a moment of concentration and serenity.
