"The most special part about this hotel is definitely the collection of marvellous little corners where you can get comfortable and daydream away."



Rooms: Every room at El Fenn is distinct and seems to have its own character and soul. Also if you lined them up next to each other, you’d have the impression of all the beautiful colours of the rainbow. Owners Vanessa Branson and Howell James have achieved the perfect balance in each room, filling them with a carefully curated selection of items that feels special, not stuffy. The combination of colours and materials is tasteful and stylish without losing any of the Arabic charm. Some rooms include direct access to the three pools and their own lovely terraces.


Specials: Art and colour lovers will feel at home here, and treasure hunters will appreciate the wonderful pieces scattered throughout. Don’t miss the hotel’s hammock where you can swing, sit, or have a nap. Have a cup of tea sitting in the beautiful garden where you’ll hear the birds sing. The most special part about this hotel is definitely the collection of marvellous little corners where you can get comfortable and daydream away.





Djemaa El Fna square, the main square of Marrakech, is conveniently located just around the corner from El Fenn. You’ll want to visit, especially in the evening, to explore the many stalls selling typical Arabic delicacies. You’ll also find storytellers, snake charmers, and other curiosities just waiting to be discovered. It’s definitely worth a look! Marrakech’s biggest mosque, Koutoubia Mosque, is nearby and is an impressive architectural sight. And if you’re feeling like a little action, there are many bars, restaurants, and colourful souks to explore in the lively and fascinating neighbourhood.

Hotels with Soul by NECTAR & PULSE is a personal collection of our favourite hotels around the globe. They have two things in common: soul and passion. Some serve the best coffee we’ve ever tasted. Some the comfiest beds and linen. Some have a sauna in the woods and delicious home-made jams. Others have a butler available 24/7 or a hunter ready to take you on a hunt. One has a library where you’ll want to while away the hours, another one a kitchen stocked with the best midnight snacks.

What they all have in common is great design, friendly people, and authenticity. We call it the NECTAR & PULSE vibe. It’s that feeling where it’s so comfortable, it almost feels home, but you feel like there’s so much to learn, see, and do. These are the places that make you think to yourself, “there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” Hotels with Soul are the ultimate destination for curious travellers with a good taste. Discover their story. Experience their soul.


We love to discover new places and to add more beautiful places to our collection. If you think that your hotel reflects our philosophy, please get in touch with us at hello@nectarandpulse.com. We are happy to give you further information, our media kit and our terms. We are looking forward to get to know you and eventually to work together.
