Bought in 2006, the Palace once owned by a Vizir, has undergone complete refurbishment in its architecture and design, to become Riad Mayfez Suites & Spa.

First a secondary home, the Riad has undergone continuous make over in recent years in terms of decoration and bespoke service, that allow it to claim a place of choice on the Luxury market in Fez, promoting its values: Creativity, Exclusivity and Lifestyle.

Nestling in the heart of the medieval city of Fez, a world heritage listed by UNESCO, Riad Mayfez Suites & Spa is full of charm and history.

XIXth century Palace with unusual architectural style where Arabic-Moorish features mix up with an Art Deco villa, Mayfez embraces the characteristics of the city: a mixture of cosmopolitan historical grandeur and gentle lifestyle.



It is here, in the largest pedestrian area of the world, that Dominique and Moulay Laraqui, welcome their guests, for a precious and unforgettable moment.

The porter of the House escorts guests, with his luggage trolley. Guests have to walk the streets, dodge a donkey, bypass the grocer’s, walk pass a mosque, before they can at last follow the impressive wall of the Riad.

The modest entrance door hides under an arcade. Nothing leaves to the imagination, that a jewel stands behind that door.


When you walk through the door, the pressure of the modern world evaporates, making way for deep well-being.
At Riad Mayfez Suites & Spa, you feel «at home» and out of the world.
It is no coincidence is our guests feel at home with us.
