Dar Darma

Marrakech, Morocco

The north african city of Marrakech attracts a fashionable crowd of winter sun seekers from all over the world. The lovely old town, so called Medina boasts a greater density of chic boutique lodgings than possibly anywhere else in the world. Even non-shoppers will be amazed by the diversity, colour and vibrancy surrounding the souks. Dar Darma is an 18th century mansion rising in the ancient Moqf district, at the very core of the Marrakech Medina and close to famous Jemaa El-Fna square, the city's beating heart, a few steps away from the Marrakech Museum and the Medersa Ben Youssef Koranic School. Restored recently, this palace offers a complete privacy and very elegant atmospheres. Its 6 superbly furnished, finely decorated penthouses offer halls with fireplaces with one or two bedrooms. Thanks to a custom-made, 24/7 service provided by the staff, Dar Darma is an ideal place for demanding travellers searching for uniqueness and the best comfort.
