What I liked:

Dar Darma is perfectly located in the middle of the Marrakesh medina for a comfortable full-on Marrakesh experience. Service, food, drinks, rooms, everything was exquisite. A perfect Tablet stay indeed.

What the hotel could do better:

Fix the electric plugs so that they stay in place and don't fall apart. And that's about it.

Hotel Description

Too often “design” actually seems to mean an absence of design, as though the end goal were to empty the hotel of everything but beds and white walls. You don’t need a designer for that, just some movers. Here, in Dar Darma, is an exception: a riad hotel that’s quite obviously had some designer attention paid to it, and the result is a six-room fantasy that leaves minimalism in the dust.

Instead maximalism is the order of the day. From ornate carved doors to fine woodwork to the lush velvet textures of the furniture, Dar Darma is unflinching in its pursuit of opulence. Public spaces are suitably dramatic and the suites and apartments are unforgettably luxe. This heavy romance is not for everyone, perhaps, but there’s a sizable contingent out there who didn’t travel all the way to Marrakech just for an ordinary hotel that’s vaguely Eastern-looking.

Dar Darma’s good looks, we’re happy to say, are backed up with some fine hospitality. The riad’s cook prepares traditional meals as well as lessons in Moroccan cooking. There’s a cozy little hammam, and the roof terrace is home not just to an impressive view but to a plunge pool as well, the ideal way to beat the daytime heat.

Children are welcome, but due to large internal windows, an unsupervised courtyard pool and lots of antiques, parents traveling with children may want to consider other accommodations.

How to get there:

Dar Darma is approximately 20 minutes away from Marrakech-Menara International Airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for more information or assistance with transfers.
