So I showed you around our suite at El Fenn at night (See the post here), but its only right you see it in all its daytime glory because it was just so freakin cute... and pink!
I loved that this suite had its own terrace and fireplaces galore, with amazing sweeping views over one of the hotels many pools. Its such a tranquil place, and you barley notice there are other guests staying here!
You can always tell how much I love a hotel by how many photos I take of it! I just could not stop snapping away at this place... It is such a unique place to stay. The use of light space and colour are really something special.
We woke up to the morning light streaming through the stain glass windows and birds singing as they flew through the riad.
Of course, the fact that this suite comes with its own private roof terrace and pool don't hurt! Its the prefect place to order a mint a tea and take a slower pace for the day.
The views of The Koutoubia Mosque (the largest mosque in Marrakesh) are just breathtaking and punctuates the sea of beige rooftops that go on for miles from this height.
Its fair to say that El fenn has been added to my ever growing favourite hotels in the world list! I do think that for me, hotels in Marrakech in particular are a sure win because I just love the french infused Moroccan interiors but that aside, El fenn is a truly special place.
Do you have a favourite hotel or riad to stay at in Marrackech?
You know your going to have a great day when it starts with a swim in a roll top bath and the most delicious breakfast ever! That's how everyday starts at El Fenn.
I finally dragged myself out of the tub and the hub's and I headed to the roof top for quite the breakfast experience.
The rooftop is adorned with fiddle leaf fig trees and cactus in rustic terracotta pots and kind of feels like your dining in the tree tops!
I REALLY love how breakfast is served at El Fenn. You are presented with a giant tray filled with breakfast goodies... Home made granola (best iv ever tasted, and they'll even give you the recipe) eggs cooked to order, freshly baked pastries, fruit bowls and homemade yogurt. Its really quite the feast and quite the event.
Breakfast was really one of the things that set El Fenn apart for me. I'll confess that i'm so not a fan of the breakfast buffet. This was a welcome and indulgent treat, and was actually one of things I really looked forward to each day.
It was also here that I discovered Amlou - a thick brown paste with a texture similar to peanut butter obtained by grinding roasted almonds mixed with honey and argan oil. Amlou is known as a speciality from the South of Morocco and is usually used as a healthy dip or spread since its key ingredient is argan oil
Luckily the riad is big enough (and interesting enough) to take a stroll around and work off some of those breakfast calories...
Just another reason to love El Fenn...
If you fancy a night of candle light, dinner and dancing whilst visiting Marrakech I highly recommend Comptoir Darna
One of the things I love about Marrakech (I love may things about Marrakech in case you couldnt tell) is that by night it transforms into something completly glamorous and decedent.
Comptoir is all luscious fragrant roses (total win in my book) candlelight and fabulous cocktails and had a similar but much more refined vibe to Jad Mahal (I wrote about it here)
Put on your high heels and evening dress head out for the most fabulous experience.
They put on quite the show at comptoir. The live music and dancing candelabra ladies create such an exotic and glamorous vibe
And the food doesn't disappoint either. Who knew id become such a fan of Moroccan cuisine.
And don't be surprised (or shy) if they get you to dance too, its somewhat expected and lots of fun...
