Take the desert excursion—after a scenic drive, a gorgeous meal awaits, and small Berber towns make for spectacular shopping on the way back.


  • Vibe and atmosphere

    Visitors linger over digestifs in the grand salon, or immerse themselves in traditional treatments in the hammam-centric spa. Those seeking something different spend an evening or two in authentic nomadic tents, enjoying the isolation of the desert—albeit with all the comforts of home.
  • Overall look and feel of the rooms

    Dar Ahlam is a traditional kasbah that features nine suites, four superior suites and one luxurious villa. Decor is strictly Moroccan with long hanging tapestries, open fireplaces, high ceilings, lots of pillows, candle lanterns, arched doorways and carved woodwork.
  • Service style

    Upon arrival, the cordial host personally welcomes visitors and explains the philosophy of the property. The unobtrusive staff is happy to whip up a regional speciality in the grand salon, or book a camelback trek through the desert.
  • Preferred room type

    The Garden Suite features an outdoor verandah, perfect for toasting to the desert sunset after a magical day.
  • Unique property features

    There is no restaurant at the hotel; instead, meals are enjoyed casually wherever and whenever guests decide to eat. Dining areas pop up and disappear over the course of the day, and the hotel can accommodate almost any request—including eating outside among the desert dunes.
