In the "Region of the Thousand Kasbahs" guests will find Dar Ahlam, a unique retreat on the cusp of the High Atlas and South Moroccan desert. Tucked away behind a veil of palm groves and olive trees, this secluded 200-year-old Kasbah is a hidden gem. Its age may date back centuries, but it still provides all the modern comforts and conveniences guests expect.
With nine suites and three villas available for guests to experience in this 19th-century Kasbah, the possibilities for relaxation abound. Interiors blend the traditional with the modern, enhanced by supple textiles and warm natural finishes. Each suite has its own distinct personality with antique curiosities set off by refreshing shades of pink, violet, and green. The private villas, secluded from the main house, are ideal for larger parties and exclusive bookings. Guests can also experience the silence of the desert at night in a private two-person tent.
Beyond the walls and groves of Dar Ahlam, discover the Dadès and Draa valleys on four wheels or four legs. Guided treks on the back of a camel or mule are a stunning way to capture the beauty of the region. Closer to the home, explore the five acres of Dar Ahlam’s gardens, area that was once part of a medieval sultan’s hunting ground. Ancient palms and olive trees make a perfect setting for midday picnics and reflective strolls.
“House of Dreams”, as the property’s name translates, is an understatement. Whether dining in the breezy courtyard garden, next to the heated pool or under the shade of the palms, the delectable Moroccan cuisine on offer as part of an all-inclusive standard is sure to please. Enjoy cocktails before or after dinner in the grand salon or in the privacy of the rooftop. Guests are treated to their first massage, gently delivered by one of a staff of experts in a secluded area of the grove. The heated pool and steam room are also available for blissful visits.Request Information
