What do you do when you stay at a super cute, and incredibly relaxing interior design oasis in the middle of august when it literally sweltering (Note to self, Marrakesh in August is not for the faint hearted)
You take it easy and take it all in, thats what.
When booking the trip, we knew it might be a little too hot for us so we made sure we booked somewhere we wouldn't tire of and that would keep us entertained on the too hot to go out afternoons (it was 43 degrees at some points)
I really couldn't imagine how anyone could get bored here. There are so many areas to explore, and when your done exploring you can sit back and enjoy.
The rooftop is the place to head to if you fancy being a little more social. It had changed vastly since the last time we were here (see the post here) which is once of the things I love about El Fenn, its always evolving.
And heres another thing I adore. The deserts.
They really are incredible! All of the food here is fantastic, but the deserts really are stand out. So much so, we found ourselves shamelessly heading to the roof in late afternoon for something sweet, indulgent and totally calorific!
This is my final post from our trip to Marrakech, one of my favourite places in the world to visit. So much so, we've just booked another trip...
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...
