Riad Alkantara is a luxury guest house designed to kindle Fez’s past splendor. Meticulously renovated from five Moroccan riads from different eras – traditional houses set around interior courtyards -- the inn enjoys an exquisite setting among lavish gardens, terraces and fountains. Each suite features unique furnishings that highlight poster beds, carved woodwork and classic Moroccan design. All rooms have air conditioning and wireless Internet. Outside, birdsong fills the air scented with jasmine and honeysuckle. A huge swimming pool fed with pure spring water offers refreshment, or relax beneath umbrella-shaded chaises on tiled esplanades. A sumptuous Moroccan breakfast is served each morning in Les Bougainvillears dining room, on the adjoining terrace or on the patio by the pool. Le Mandala bar serves an afternoon silver tea service and is open for drinks each evening.
