Designed by architect Christophe Pillet, the Hotel Sahrai in Morocco sits comfortably on a hillside location overlooking Fez. The spacious retreat blends in the old with the new in contemporary style with Fassi ceramics and traditional Taza stonework in synergy with modern designer furnishings, adding to the ambience of the Hotel.
The Givenchy Spa is an ideal place for relaxation and tranquillity. With 5 treatment rooms offering a wide selection of treatments and massages and equipped with en-suites and walk-in showers, Guests can be assured of total pampering. Guests can also choose one of the rooms which offer treatments on the Spa’s terrace with a grand view of Fez. As one would expect, the treatments are by Givenchy using the brand’s cosmetic range and some exclusive blends. The open-air area is equipped with a Jacuzzi as well as a luxury Givenchy boutique showcasing the full product range. The Spa is indeed a unique experience and worth noting that it is one of only 4 in the World.
Two restaurants and bars serve the Hotel. The Relais De Paris serves lunch and diner with private dining options available on request.
