About Palais Amani
One of the city’s largest and arguably most beautiful restored palaces, Palais Amani, is a serene escape. Situated in the ancient medina, the hotel nudges the heritage-rich Golden Triangle of Fez.
Carved arches and orange trees hark back to old world opulence with bells and whistles fit for royalty – 24-hour concierge, zellij-tiled fountains, and a decadent spa. Rooms enjoy hand-woven Moroccan rugs, cedar wood doors and art-deco hints.
Sip on fresh mint tea among the citrus scented courtyard. You could even request a personal hammam experience in the spa. The hotel offers cooking classes for Moroccan feasts and two-hour henna parties. Or why not learn how to belly dance wearing traditional garb.
If relaxing is on the agenda, simply sun yourself on the rooftop and order a cocktail to your lounger. The restaurant serves delicious Fez staples from a seasonal menu with spiced lamb tagine or even local bastila – pigeon wrapped in delicate filo.
