Riad Dar Lys


A quiet retreat

In the heart of the medina of Fes, Dar Lys remains true to its heritage and has been built in the style of the old Fassi houses of the medina. Tadelakt plastered walls are adorned with lily and honeycomb motifs, along with artwork and furniture by local artists and craftsmen. Ideally located down a quiet street, it is just a five-minute walk from Batha Square.

There are 18 individually decorated rooms – all bright and welcoming, opening onto the patio and complete with every modern convenience you could hope for, including Smart TVs and Nespresso coffee machines.

The Lotus Spa offers a range of rejuvenating treatments, including a Hamman ritual with black soap and rose water body-wrap. Breakfast is served on the patio, with a focus on produce that will set you up for your busy days out and about exploring the medina. The on-property Zahra Restaurant showcases local cuisine – be sure to try a tajine or the pastilla, and afterward, enjoy an alcohol-free nightcap at Le Syl Bar.
