Riad Fès

5 Derb Ben Slimane
Fez , Morocco

Embedded in the warren of narrow passageways that make up Fez's medievalmedina, this luxurious riad has a design sense that reflects itsBerber, Andalusian, and European influences. The 26 rooms and suites—decoratedwith tile mosaics, carved cedar furnishings, locally woven rugs, and tadelakt or Carrara marble baths—are lovely, but the riad’s common areasare the true showstoppers. As well as a grand Moorish atrium, with twostories of painstakingly restored carved arches and columns, there’s alsoa colonnaded patio with a fountain-fed reflecting pool and an alfrescobar offering cigars and cocktails. At day's end, the place to be is theatmospheric roof terrace, with its panoramic view of the medina and theAtlas Mountains beyond.
