Fodor's Expert Review Dar Ahlam

Kasbah Madihi, Skoura Palmery, Skoura, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco Fodor's Choice

A restored 19th-century kasbah, Dar Ahlam, "the House of Dreams," is one of Morocco's most exclusive and sumptuous hideaways and with its epic desert setting, impeccable service, and intimate more-house-than-hotel feel, you may never want to wake up. Each stunning suite takes up an entire side of the building, and while no two suites are the same, each offers heated floors, Atlas mountain views, and fireplaces, as well as an adjoining riad with decadent pampering treatments. Meals are served whenever you like, and never with other guests. The dining area changes nightly, so in the company of glorious food, petals, and candles, you can discover different parts of the kasbah with each passing day. The staff can arrange local tours and excursions including a trip from Marrakesh to Dar Ahlam with five stops (a great way to begin your stay) and luxurious overnight camping trips. It's worth checking ahead for special offers in low-season.
