The Fellah Hotel is a stylish new desgin-led country hotel outside of Marrakech with admirable ambitions to engage and support the local community and artists through an eclectic blend of activities.
Set within 11 hectares (27 acres) with views of the Atlas Mountain range, there are ten spacious villas. Each of these 850 square meters buildings has been divided - creating 62 rooms all uniquely styled, with a blend of traditional Berber patterns and modern colors and furnishings from Morocco's top artisans and designers. On site there is a state of the art wellness centre and gym, yoga studio, extensive library and excellent children's activities. If you like your relaxation less organised, there is a large heated swimming pool, table tennis, badminton and football within the large grounds.
The restaurant wraps around the swimming pool, and cocktails are served in the outdoor bar and indoor lounge. A nice touch is the TOUCO cafe, a rarity for this kind of resort, it aims to serve authentic local food and is run by local villagers.
Each guest’s check-in contributes a portion to Dar al-Ma'mûn, an UNESCO recognized art center and library that provides cultural education and activities for our local village and supports emerging Moroccan artists with its artists in residence program.
The Children's program is organised with the art center and library and includes art classes (with the artists in residence), storytelling, cooking classes and exploring the farm and gardens. For teens there are art exploration, DJ and film making classes. Activities tend to be centred around school holiday periods and change over time. There are no 2 bedroom suites at Fellah, so families will either need to take two standard rooms or take one of the larger suites which can take upto 2 extra beds.
After an initial settling in period, not unsurprising for such an ambitious project, we are hearing good reports and see Fellah as a good alternative to the Beldi Country Club and Les Deux Tours for anyone looking for some good relaxation time by the pool to compliment a more active itinerary elsewhere.
Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
- Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
- The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
- Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
- Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
- Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant
If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

We had a brilliant holiday in Morocco courtesy of Tourdust this Summer (2015). Despite any anticipated difficulties of travelling to a country with a different culture and language we found everyone involved with our trip really friendly and helpful. The accommodation in all three areas was delightful, all in different ways, the food delicious and all the transfers involved worked very smoothly which really took the stress out of things. Trekking in the extreme heat of August requires a level of fitness which I personally found a struggle, but the guide made it possible to go at a speed that was comfortable. My two teenage sons really enjoyed the trip as well. Tourdust were really helpful before travelling in helping with any last minute issues. I would really recommend this trip.

We had a fantastic time and were very impressed with the smooth organisation throughout, so please pass my thanks on to the team and in particular to Ben who suggested and planned our stay. Waking up on the morning of my 30th in the mountains and hiking up to a waterfall in the snow was certainly the best memory which will stay with us for years!
We felt the riad in Marrakech was wonderful and were very looked after by the hosts. I think we should have perhaps tried to be a bit more organised with sightseeing as it is so hard to navigate the city and a lot of walking. In hindsight a guide would be good even though we never feel we need one being stubborn travellers.
The trek was impressive and Mohammed and Samir were good fun. It was challenging but the right level for us and we really felt it was a great achievement.
Lastly, we both really, really rated Domaine Malika which is hands down the best hotel we have stayed in (I used to stay in plenty of 5 * European and LHW hotels in a previous job? so that's a high praise for us).
We thought we'd been checked into the biggest room in the place and it was just the basic room. The staff were brilliant and the pool/food/décor all wonderful. Next time, we would head straight here, take a day taxi into Marrakech, and then a day or two trek away from the hotel as we loved it so much.
