Sumptuous courtyard garden!


Palais Amani in Fez is an oasis of calm in the middle of the bustle of the Medina. The walls, floors and columns are beautifully decorated with Moroccan tiles. The glazed tiles are made in the traditional, artisanal way; around the corner, because in the Medina of Fez, all the old crafts are in full swing. You will also find tanners, reed benders and woodcarvers here….

The holy city of Fez is well preserved, no cars drive there. The city was founded in the 9th century and the oldest university in the world is located there. Fez reached its peak in these Middle Ages. The urban structure and main monuments in the Medina, including madrassas, Arab inns, palaces, mosques and fountains, date from this period. Meanwhile, the beautiful city is included in Unesco’s heritage.

The opulent Palais offers fifteen very spacious and very tastefully decorated rooms. The sumptuous interior garden is the perfect location to start your day with an exquisite Moroccan breakfast. You can also end the day here; there are exquisite dishes on the menu of the refined restaurant and the garden is illuminated in the evening with lanterns in the olive trees. On the roof is a bar and there are sun beds. Lovely to relax and enjoy after a busy day. This can also be done in the traditional Moroccan hammam.

I find Palais Amani a perfect starting point to discover Fez. The combination of warm hospitality and the beautiful surroundings felt like a warm blanket. The very friendly inhabitants of the city, the traditional atmosphere, the many attractions and the surprising restaurants make Fez really a must!
