“Surrounded by gardens and overlooking the Atlas Mountains, this enchanting hideaway in Morocco certainly knows how to impress. All of the rooms combine old world charm with modern luxury, and as you’ll never have a meal in the same place twice or taste the same dish, dining is a thrill. Dar Ahlam welcomes children and a stay here will appeal to adventurous families looking for a unique experience.”
Located on the fringes of the Sahara, Dar Ahlam is a 200-year-old restored kasbah set amongst palm groves and almond trees. This luxurious desert hideaway includes lush, manicured gardens, a pool flanked by palm trees, spa facilities, discreet yet attentive service, and views of the Atlas Mountains.
The intimate kasbah offers 13 suites in the warren-like main building, plus a private villa with plunge pool in the grounds. Rooms are decorated in neutral, earthy tones with antiques and textiles, open fireplaces, and large bathrooms.
Dining is a unique experience. There’s no restaurant or bar as such; meals are curated for each guest and served in a different location each night. The menu combines traditional Moroccan cuisine with contemporary twists.
There’s a stunning pool and a hammam offering a range of indulgent treatments. Activities here include horse riding, camel safaris, picnics, cookery classes, and the opportunity to spend the night at a desert camp under the stars.
