We know how overwhelming traveling to a brand new city can be, especially when it’s a unique place like Marrakech! Before we travel, we obsess over all the possibilities and recommendations we come across. The tips we received from friends at home and locals on the ground were key to making it such a great trip! Hopefully we inspired you to check Morocco out for yourself. If you plan to go, here are some suggestions to make your trip great. We absolutely fell in love and already plan to go back.
We’ve traveled a lot and El Fenn is the most inspirational hotel we have ever been to. Every room is different and unique. The owners have a strong sense for design and the whole experience is inspiring. It’s not just the rooms or the rooftop bar with views of Marrakech and whole medina, but it's the color it's the tile, it's the attention to detail.
Be sure to get there from 5 to 7 p.m. when they offer their “Snack Time”! Don’t be fooled by the cute name, this “snack time” is a sophisticated menu with everything from charcuterie boards and smoked salmon bruschetta to homemade Moroccan sweets. Be sure to enjoy it with one of the best cocktails we have ever had — the “Spicy Caipirinha.” Or try it at home — they were generous enough to share their recipe!
