ABOUT AL FASSIA Traditional architecture and magnificent views of the Atlas mountains
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Saida, Mariam, Myra and Abderrahim, 3 sisters and 1 brother. We are the Chab family. Having lived all our childhood in 5 star hotels all around Morocco, we commit ourselves to develop what has been started as one of the first Moroccan restaurant in the City center of Marrakech. Backed by the experience of both our father and mother, who created the first AL FASSIA Restaurant in Marrakech dedicated to women in the city center of Marrakech known as Guéliz,over 25 years ago, we wanted to complete our offer by proposing accommodation.
The particularity of the AL FASSIA RESTAURANT is that it employs mainly women. The original idea at that time came from Mr Mohammed CHAB (our Father, a professional Hotelier) and our late Mother, Mrs Fatima CHAB who worked hard to train the women in the kitchen. The Woman is in charge in the house. the Guest is welcomed, greeted and served by women. AL Fassia translates to “The Woman from Fes”. Fes, the spiritual capital of Morocco, that is internationally known for its refined cuisine. It is a tribute to all Moroccan women that have thrived to master the Moroccan cuisine to satisfy their families and especially their husband. AL FASSIA is not only a Restaurant but also a 1st category boutique hotel offering accommodation for its guests.
