Insider's View

Have your playlist ready, the suites all have bluetooth feature so that you can play your own music surround sound throughout the suite 

Be sure to visit the library - not only is the luscious velvet seating beautiful, but the library shelves are adorned with traditional Moroccan artifacts that are very interesting

Make sure you take the time to have the date and milk on arrival! Moroccan dates are so good, they taste like natures candy bar!

Rachael Mendizabal (Staff)

Villa Diyafa is located in an exclusive part of Rabat and that is reflected in both the style and service. The bathroom in my suite was huge with a massive tub, separate water closet and shower with both rain and regular shower head!  The walk-in closet had loads of storage and hanging space, so I had plenty of space to unpack after the long flight and reorganise myself. There is a very modern feature - you can pipe in music from lobby or hook to your own bluetooth all from a button on the wall.
