Burst of Colour

El Fenn’s style comes from all sorts of inspiration. Most notably, the use of bright bold colours that coordinate with those which you can find around the city. Bursts of pinks, oranges and blues paired with earthy tones, borrowed from the surrounding landscape.

Founder Story

Owners Vanessa Branson and Howell James came to Marrakech in 2002 with a simple mission: to find themselves a pied-à-terre. Little did they know that when they stumbled upon the ruined courtyard of this abandoned private home that their simple vision would grow into so much more. The couple imprinted their own style onto the hotel, offering something a little different to Marrakech.
