Dar Ahlam - BOUTIQUE HOTEL IN MOROCCO
Experience a land of adventure from this Kasbah near Ouarzazate, gateway to the Moroccan desert
On the fringes of the Moroccan desert, shaded by the palms, lies Dar Ahlam. Terracotta coloured stone meets cerulean skies as this traditional Kasbah cuts an imposing shape across the landscape. Unwind in a haven of manicured lawns and fragrant almond blossom. Or step out into the wilderness of the desert for a night under the stars, where you will soak up the elegant beauty in the privacy of your own luxury tent.
The décor changes with the seasons, sumptuous fabrics and colours bringing the environment to life. Days at Dar Ahlam are long and luxurious. Without the distractions of television and technology, you can really unwind. Instead, indulge in a massage under the olive trees or head off for refreshments by the river. Spend a balmy evening atop the Kasbah, aperitif in hand, before feasting on a freshly prepared supper under the vast sky.
Beyond the walls of Dar Ahlam lies all the mystery of the desert. Explore the dunes on camelback for a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, surrounding yourself with the golden sands of the Sahara as you’re pampered in your private luxury tent for a night under the stars. You can also spend seven days travelling the road from Marrakech, following the oases of southern Morocco.

The concept of Dar Ahlam is very different from many more standard hotels. There is no restaurant room at Dar Ahlam- but instead there are dozens of places inside and or outside to organise meals privately at the time you want. A 1001 night dinner- an alfresco lunch in the garden- a picnic in Sidi Fla gorges - if you wish- you can experience a different place and decor for every meal during your stay.
These reviews are the real opinions of INVITED members and we have verified their stay at the hotel.
Fantastic food and service. Very memorable experience and setting. Our room was a bit tired though.
My Trip Type: Couple
Outstanding food. A completely new setting for every meal. Service was exemplary. Very personalised experience. Very relaxed feel. Gorgeous pool area. Extremely well managed.
Top tip for other guests:
The hotel generously provided a complimentary late check out. This required us to move to a different room. This was in the main building. The room was smaller but we preferred it because it looked had clearly been renovated more recently than our original room.
