DAR DARMA- Marrakech, Morocco
Amidst the sanctuary that is Dar Darma, the word "no" simply does not exist. Your wish is their command, truly, at this private, casually chic private retreat that takes personal service to an elevated level. Carefully restored and thoughtfully preserved, this 18th century treasure is positioned beautifully in the heart of the Old Quarter, just steps from the Museum of Marrakech and the bustling Jemaa El Fna.

Elegance, seclusion and discretion abound throughout, with a traditional Moroccan décor carrying through the space from the hand-painted wooden ceilings to the intricate ancient portals. All 4 lavish suites and 2 apartments are unique in décor and character, featuring fireplace, spacious bathroom and impossibly thoughtful accents in the form of traditional handcrafted Moroccan furnishings, intricately painted ceilings, richly woven carpets and vibrant fabrics. NB- The Mirror Suite is especially decadent, where opulent reflections seemingly infinitely enhance the size of the space.

All of the rooms overlook the 2 central courtyards, blending into the Moroccan lounge, Hall of Arches and the fireplace lounge, oases of relaxation amongst the accelerated pace of the city. Their traditional hammam is best enjoyed when blended with a signature spa treatment, while culinary delicacies are freshly prepared throughout the day for dining enjoyment at each guest's discretion. In case you can't get enough of the chef's fabulous creations, Dar Darma also organizes interactive cooking lessons with the culinary masters so you can not only participate and learn, but also take the recipes and memories back home with you.

Life happens at each individual guest's pace, for here, there are no specific times for breakfast, meals or check-out, no demands at all except for those of the guest which are catered to effortlessly. Daring, delicious, divine...Dar Darma.
