Palais Faraj is not just a stunning luxury hotel: it is a celebration of cherished Moroccan heritage. Experience the city of Fez through traditional Fassi cuisine, outstanding architectural details, and a perfect blend of the modern and the classic.
From its hilltop location, Palais Faraj Suites and Spa presides over the famed Fes el Bali medina. Architect and interior designer Jean-Baptiste Barian lent his expertise in Arab-Andalusia architecture to the conception and construction of the hotel. His design makes liberal use of arches and columns, intricate moucharabiehs, carved timber, brass finishes, and walls of zellige tiles.
Just 25 suites can be found in the Palais Faraj accommodation collection, each individually designed to incorporate traditional elegance and modern standards. Inclusive of a flat-screen television with satellite channels and complimentary wireless Internet access, no detail has been overlooked for today’s traveler. What makes these abodes stand out is their tribute to classic Moroccan design. Screen-like moucharabiehs allow light to filter through the terraces, painted wood ceilings add unique interest, miraculous stucco lace adorns the walls, and the rich jewel colors elevate the interiors to royal levels.
Guests also have the option of staying like royalty and experiencing the styling of a traditional Fassi home. Le Riad Marocain is a two bedroom dual-level masterpiece with a private courtyard centered around a marble fountain. This open-air space is ingeniously fitted with a sliding glass roof to protect from the elements, or invite them inside.
Open for breakfast and dinner, La Terrasse welcomes guests to a rooftop dining experience unlike any in Fez. The unique decadence and flavors of Fassi cuisine can be enjoyed at L’ Amandier fine dining restaurant. If you feel inspired, your Ker & Downey luxury travel consultant can arrange a Fassi culinary class so you may learn techniques to take home.
Drawing on the traditional elements and therapeutics of Moroccan beauty, the spa and salon services at the hotel will leave you feeling wholly rejuvenated and refreshed. You may also arrange a lesson on the natural cosmetic properties of essential oils, rose water, Argan oil, and other age-old indulgences.
Palais Faraj Suites and Spa puts you in perfect proximity for exploring Fes el Bali, the world’s oldest medina and its largest car-free urban area. Ker & Downey guides will escort you through its eclectic maze of streets and shops before your return to Palais Faraj to retreat back into the lap of luxury.Request Information
