Dar Ahlam
  • Dar Ahlam's isolation is central to its philosophy of peace and privacy - you really do feel like you are in another world entirely

  • The setting for Dar Ahlam is the Sultan's former hunting grounds

  • Dar Ahlam offers a bespoke desert camp experience like no other- a bivouac tent with en-suite and private terrace - glamorous camping indeed

  • Choose your steed be it a camel, mule or horse for an exciting adventure in this fascinating region

Dar Ahlam, or the 'house of dreams', is located in Morocco's Ouarzazate region, perched between the town of Skoura and the Atlas Mountains in what was a Sultan’s private hunting ground. Surrounded by almond trees, olive groves, dates and roses, Dar Ahlam's luscious gardens are a luxury oasis, hidden away to the world.

Inside the imposing red brick Kasbah there are 13 suites, with a private villa in the grounds – all stunningly furnished, blending Moroccan chic with French influences – a perfect harmony of old world charm and modern luxury. Decorated with rich Moroccan colors and filled with individual artifacts and antiques, each suite is unique.

Gourmet meals are prepared by two French chefs and are exquisite, combining traditional Moroccan specialities with the latest culinary innovations. You can dine in a different private location each day such as lunch in the olive grove or herb garden and dinner on one of the Kasbah's many tucked away terraces, ensuring that privacy and seclusion is maintained throughout your stay.

The hotel has a hammam and spa, and offers an extensive range of indulgent, rejuvenating treatments. Dar Ahlam also has a superb desert camp which offers possibly the best desert experience in North Africa. Spend a night under the stars in your own luxury bivouac tent, with en-suite bathroom, living room and private terrace. A combination of Dar Ahlam with their desert camp is surely the way to see Morocco in style.

Activities abound, from chauffeured 4X4 excursions to the Dades or Draa valleys or the stunning Valley of the Roses - or take a donkey, camel, horse, quad bike or motorbike - the methods of transport around this fascinating and expansive region are endless. For those wanting a peaceful day nearer to home, take a cooking class, a stroll with a picnic in the surrounding area or simply enjoy the pool, treatments and hammam.
