Hotel Sahrai

Hotel Sahrai 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.

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. Behind them, arranged around plant-covered atriums, is complex of 50 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.

Derived from the Moroccan word for magic, the name of the Hotel Sahrai makes a beautiful promise - and keeps it.

L'Heure Bleue Palais Essaouira

Originally built at the end of the 19th century, on the ruins of an ancient ‘fondouk’ - hostel for travelling traders - the ‘sleeping beauty’, as it was called by the locals, initially was the sumptuous residence of Caid Mbark Saidi. Later acquired by a wealthy merchant, it then served as an orphanage until the 1960s, before being left abandoned and in disrepair. At this point the Azoulay family and associates decided to restore this once noble residence and bring it back to life.

Heure Bleue Palais opened its doors in June 2004 after three years of renovation and reconstruction, now with a new vocation as a luxury hotel. Today Heure Bleue Palais is the pride of Essaouira and pure serendipity for its guests.

The 33 rooms & suites are arranged over 4 floors and overlook the verdant patio - the decor is influenced by colonial nuances from the Orient, Africa, Portugal and Britain. Heure Bleue Palais is a testimony to Essaouira’s glorious past at the crossroads of African, European and Arab civilisations. The hotel offers everything a sophisticated traveller expects of a luxury hotel, yet Heure Bleue Palais still conserves the architecture of a traditional Moroccan riad: the public areas, restaurant and rooms open onto a courtyard with an ornate fountain - in true Moroccan tradition this is the heart of the riad. The colonial style Salon Anglais invites to relax in a mellow ambiance with subtle lighting and sumptuous English decor.

Morocco defines dazzling with an energy and culture infused with Arab, European and African influences. An enormous variety of sights are packed into its corner of North Africa: Desert fortresses rise up from Saharan sands. Sapphire waters stretch beyond white sandy beaches. Purple peaks of the Atlas Mountains glitter with snow. Kasbahs and mosques of ancient Medina and the back alleys of Marrakesh offer glimpses into the mystical times while hip cafes, high-design riads and popular Atlantic resorts like Asilah and Essaouria reflect the country’s modern, cosmopolitan side.

Morocco’s varied geography also means that you can take your pick of when to travel. In general, April and May offer the best weather across the country. The desert region — and to a lesser extent, the plains cities — should be avoided in mid-summer due to the heat, but that’s the time when coastal cities are lovely. Mountains can be chilly in the winter (a word of caution: many hotels don’t have heat), and even desert temperatures can plummet at night in the summer. Take your pick, and pack a bag. Perfect for independent or group travel, Morocco’s tradition of hospitality, generosity and openness is one of many reasons visitors return time and again.
