Sahrai Hotel


If one word encapsulates Hotel Sahrai, it’s the meaning behind its name: magic. On a hillside overlooking Fez’s medina, acclaimed designer Christophe Pillet has transformed this historic holiday home into a palatial retreat. Sand-hued arcades lined with copper lanterns invite a stroll through leafy terraces to the infinity pool and Morocco’s first Givenchy spa, while interiors fuse traditional, intricately carved plaster walls and Fassi ceramics with a contemporary aesthetic. All 50 rooms and suites are fitted with floor-to- ceiling windows; Deluxe rooms are your best bet for a spectacular sunrise. Later, stop by Les Arcades for an alfresco lunch or head to Amaraz for Moroccan and Lebanese plates. Refreshing mint concoctions at the Jungle Bar are a must after a jaunt to the souks.
