Getting a Henna Tatos in Fez !

December 3rd 2013

Henna has been used throughout Africa, India, and the Middle East for thousands of years. For centuries, mehndi — the art of henna painting on the body — has been practiced in India, Africa, and the Middle East, where the henna plant is believed to bring love and good fortune, and to protect against evil. Mehndi is traditionally practiced for wedding ceremonies, during important rites of passage, and in times of joyous celebration. A paste made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant is applied to the skin, and when removed several hours later, leaves beautiful markings on the skin that fade naturally over 1 to 3 weeks.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

  • Hidden at the end of a narrow passage way, the door at Riad Ibn Khaldoun opens to a beautiful tiled central court. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was most accommodating and made us feel like family. A plus was to see the owners collection of old costumes...not sure if he still does this. A very pleasant and happy stay!

  • Tucked away down an alley but a real wow factor when you open the door into the riad. Beautifully decorated - we had a lovely, large bedroom with four poster bed. Felt like being in a royal palace. Meals on the roof garden with exceptional views over Fez medina. We thank the owner and Ahmed for all of their help and making us so welcome and comfortable. They even let us stay later in the day for our evening flight home. Would strongly recommend this riad.
