Overview

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.

The Fellah has fantastic facilities but is let down on occasion by mixed service. Standard rooms represent good value for money, and we would recommend it for families looking for an organised and eclectic kids program and varied facilities. However, for a more seamless experience, albeit at a higher price point, both Les Deux Tours and Jnane Tamsna offer superior service in this category.

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you for all your help, advice and guidance in organising our holiday. As this was not our first booking with Tourdust we were confident that all our transfers would work perfectly and they did - everything ran so smoothly! The riad in Marrakesh was stunning - a truly beautiful oasis of calm in such a busy, bustling city. As you can imagine, we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our room as outside was so hot! I was nervous about walking through the souks at night, but as they were well lit we felt perfectly safe and found our confidence grew in navigating the journey home each time we ventured out. When we arrived at our lodge in the Atlas Mountains we were blown away by the scenery. The views were amazing and the beautiful lodge gardens were the perfect place to sit and relax before taking a dip in the pool. Our day trek was truly amazing - no small thanks to our guide Rashid, who was so helpful and knowledgable. The lunch in the traditional Berber village was delicious and we were were made to feel so welcome. The home owner showed us how to make bread and then cooked it for us in her traditional clay oven. This was a memory we will never forget as we stood surrounded by her chickens and goats watching her use her bare hands to prepare the fire! Our night in the desert was breathtaking. The camel ride at sunset was so incredible and the quad biking the next morning was brilliant fun. I am so glad we added in these extras as they really made the experience! We finally made it to our hotel at the coast, where the surf lessons were a hit and the hotel was a great place to relax and read! Thank you again for all your help. We would definitely recommend Tourdust to all our friends and family. Tanya

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
