Majestically perched on the south hill with breathtaking views of the 12 centuries old Medina, Palais Faraj Suites & Spa invites you to experience the uniqueness of Fez in refinement and comfort. A harmonious combination of elegance and authenticity, the Palais Faraj is also an architectural gem of rare beauty, designed by the famous architect and interior designer Jean-Baptiste Barian, a specialist in Arab Andalusia architecture.

Night 4: Sahara Desert Tent Camp

Your Moroccan adventure isn’t complete without an overnight in a traditional Bedouin Tent. Experience a sense of timelessness as you enjoy a traditional meal and a restful night’s sleep in the silent Saharan Desert, unchanged since the days of the spice, gold and indigo caravans.
