The Fellah Hotel
The Fellah Hotel, located 14 kilometres from Marrakech at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, will celebrate its Grand Launch in September 2013 following a soft opening phase.
Encompassing 10 villas (with 69 rooms) – all furnished with mid-century flea-market finds as well as modern pieces commissioned from local craftsmen - the Fellah Hotel is home to Morocco and Europe’s only Wat Po Massage Centre, with therapists trained at Bangkok’s Wat Po temple – considered the home of Thai Arts and Learning; as well as a wellness and yoga centre, swimming pool, a giant cactus garden and two restaurants offering both contemporary and local fare.
Based on minimalist designs which reflect Morocco’s true rural heritage as well as its contemporary culture, the Hotel is also home to Dar al-Ma'mûn – the only cultural centre in North Africa and the Middle East to receive the UNESCO-Aschberg label. A non-profit arts centre dedicated to bringing international contemporary art and culture to Morocco, as well as acting as an international residency centre for artists and literary translators.
