If you want to be spoilt whilst staying a stone's throw away from the medina in Fez, Palais Faraj has all the luxury you need for an exotic adventure. All of the spacious suites have an exceptional living space with high painted wooden ceilings, big beds and extremely comfortable beddings. This authentic setting offers rest and relaxation, along with a traditional hammam, two scrub rooms, three luxury cabins for massages and treatments, relaxation room with a tisanerie for herbal tea and infusions and an additional hairdresser upon request. The essence of beauty is displayed once you walk into the front door of Palais Faraj and get welcomed from everyone. When we delved into the Deluxe Room with a view of the swimming pool we knew we were stepping into something magical.
Set on a hilltop overlooking the historic old Medina of Fez, Palais Faraj Suites & Spa sweeps guests into a magical world where the enchantment of a bygone time blends harmoniously with modern inspiration. Jean-Baptiste Barian, architect and interior designer, is a specialist of Moroccan craftsmanship and follower of contemporary architecture. He carries experiences of working with embassies, residences of princes and princesses and has done a phenomenal job with Palais Faraj. The actual hotel is the bold vision of local entrepreneur Driss Faceh.
Palais Faraj is almost the most comforting and extravagant a hotel can be. The rich heritage of the city of Fez has culturally inspired Palais Faraj to offer greatness in this area of Morocco. Each one of the 25 suites was designed and engineered to supremacy, with great art taking place and supplied with the latest luxury facilities. A well respected balance between architect´s Jean-Baptiste Barian interior design and the elegance of arches, columns, stucco lanes, marble floors and plenty of details within the decor give the alcazar the "wow" factor.
We have also enjoyed a catered breakfast in bed along with an early morning rest by the pool.
