Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Sahrai

Bab Lghoul, Dhar el Mehraz, Fez, Fès-Boulemane, 30000, Morocco

Perched on a hill looking down on the medina, this boldly designed and ultrastylish boutique hotel has brought a new level of contemporary luxury to Fez. Using Taza limestone, marble, wood, metal, and glass, French design guru Christophe Pillet has imitated the layout of the old city. Rooms and suites are all clean lines, space, and light; there’s a Givenchy spa (only the fourth in the world) with a hammam, and an infinity pool that overlooks the medina. Choose gourmet Moroccan or French brasserie fare and sundowners on the terrace or a live DJ on the rooftop bar, where you can drink in the views. Tired of tagines? Head to its Relais de Paris restaurant for steak frites and chocolate mousse.
