These past two weeks have been entirely grueling mentally and physically with the end of the fiscal year ending and work deadlines that got me stuck in the office working frantically to meet the rush of proposal deadlines that fall under my grants portfolio. Yes, working for a nonprofit can be tremendously rewarding, but at times it gets very stressful and is really no more different than working for any for-profit organizations. In sum, stress got me looking forward to my November trip to Marrakesh! I’m beyond excited! And this beautiful boutique hotel is making me that much more eager. While I haven’t finalized my traveling plans just yet, I couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful gemstone that is the El Fenn hotel.
Nestled just five minutes away from Djemaa el Fna, and surrounded by tree-filled courtyards, El Fenn offers a whimsical and shelter from the hustle and bustle of the city.
My eyes are simply fixed on this drop-dead gorgeous bathtub, oh how I wish I could be there right now.
What is there not to like? From this inviting mustard yellow velvet couch, Moroccan embroidery motifs, and french checker tiles which make this space completely spellbinding, just everything evokes complete relaxation.
It is no surprise that Morocco is considered the country of allure, magic, and mystery. Moroccan decor and architectural elements that draw inspiration from Islam are omnipresent, just as much as the Moorish architecture and earth tone colors that are so soothing to the eye, not to mention holds the soul hostage.
Oh, and those burgundy pink painted walls are so inviting and contrast with the previous bathroom seen earlier. And this silver clawfoot bathtub adds such a touch of sophistication!
What also makes this hotel so inviting is that it’s home to a lovely store that curates the best of what Marrakesh has to offer, from vintage accessories, leather goods, to pottery and jewelry, and even artwork all locally crafted with passion and love.
Decisions, decisions. Selecting a hotel has never been as difficult with the abundance of Ryads and boutique hotels found abound throughout the city. I still have a few weeks to book my hotel reservation, but I am definitely swooning over El Fenn hotel.
