“Palais Amani is a beautifully restored riad located right inside the ancient Medina. It features the most incredible courtyard garden, complete with central fountain surrounded by citrus trees. Despite being located on one of the most bustling streets in the medina, this is an incredibly peaceful retreat that feels uncrowded but still has an intimate ambience. The elegant rooms are traditional Moroccan design but with a modern twist. I highly recommend a sunset cocktail on their stunning rooftop terrace with its amazing views of the city.”
Within the walls of the ancient medina in the heart of Fez lies Palais Amani, a luxurious boutique hotel. This century-old, riad-style palace features art deco features, and combines traditional Moroccan style with modern comforts.
Palais Amani is home to 14 spacious rooms and suites, all featuring opulent interiors, stunning bathrooms and state-of-the-art amenities. The rather impressive Grand Suite is huge, occupying an entire floor in one of the wings, and has art deco features and stained glass windows overlooking the garden.
There’s a menu of contemporary French and Moroccan delights. The gardens offer a wonderful setting for dining whether you’re enjoying a traditional Moroccan breakfast or sumptuous three-course dinner. If you wish to eat out, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby.
After a day exploring the medina, experience the ritual of purification in the luxurious hammam, enjoy a massage on the roof terrace or sip a cocktail at the bar as you admire the views. Although there isn’t a pool at Palais Amani, there are showers to cool off in on the roof. The hotel also runs cookery classes and wine tastings.
