The hotel lies just a few kilometres outside Marrakech – a city that has seen visitors fall for its mesmeric charms for centuries – nestled in an old village over which the Atlas Mountains loom. It’s surrounded by lush palm gardens and olive groves, with just 69 rooms across ten chocolate-brown, Cubist-style villas called dars. Each one is 800m2 in size. The architect fully integrated the Fellah Hotel into the stunning landscape, creating a fusion of contemporary design, vintage aesthetics and the desert setting – it’s a venue with a seemingly endless capacity to surprise. Old radios from the 1940s, mid-century lamps and stylish club chairs are casually combined with furniture commissioned from local craftsmen, and traditional fabrics made by the women of the neighbouring village.
