Hotel Fellah: An Agricultural Oasis in Marrakech
An oasis so idyllic, you might first think it’s a mirage, Hotel Fellah is an eight-acre retreat that fuses Moroccan culture with a hipster design aesthetic and a farm-to-table ethos. Locals, artists in residence, and guests mingle in the art center and library, and at the educational farm, kids groom donkeys, milk goats or collect eggs that are sold in neighboring villages. The small café opposite the swimming pool is run by Touco, a resident of nearby Tassoultante village. Don’t miss his tagine, or—even better—pick ingredients from the garden and ask him to show you how to make it.

The Trendiest Hotel in Marrakech
Hotel Fellah sits on the outskirts of Marrakech, but is well worth the half an hour drive from the city center. The property has an on-site library, boxing gym and pool, where it's easy to pass away an afternoon in the Moroccan sunshine. Hotel Fellah also has tagine cooking classes in their creative, beautifully curated tea room that offers the perfect opportunity to both make and sample local cuisine.
