Hotel Of The Day:,El Fenn Marrakech Morocco

This ultra-chic riad is Instagram gold – think hot pinks, Moroccan furnishings and plunge pools to die for.  A 28-room labyrinth with three sheltered courtyards, it’s a stylish retreat to stay in, and it’s one of the few riads in the medina with a swimming pool.

As soon as you lay eyes on the design aesthetic here, you’ll never want to leave.

Where exactly is El Fenn?

The hotel is just five minutes walk from Marrakech’s world-famous Djemaa el Fna square and bustling maze of streets that make up the souk. In the heart of the medina, you’ll be close to all the action yet super relaxed.

What’s so special about this hotel?

Where to begin? El Fenn has historic architecture with hideaway nooks, terraces and gardens, a rooftop terrace and is a riot of fun and colour. Barbie-chic meets Middle East is the vibe.

Each room has its own unique design, and some come with plunge pools and hand stitched camel leather floors. Retro furniture adds character and views of the candlelit courtyard in the evening are dreamy.
