Love the peaceful gardens? Request a pre-packed picnic stocked with authentic handmade treats to enjoy under the fragrant olive trees.
Vibe and atmosphereThough the hotel is only ten miles from Marrakech, the city's cosmo bustle feels lightyears away—guests wile away on the chic sun beds scattered alongside the Mediterranean-style pool, breaking their respite solely for street-food done up at Touco cafe, or full-cleanse steam baths in the onsite hammam.
Overall look and feel of the roomsThe ten villas scattered throughout the former farmland house 69 rooms, each decorated with its own esoteric melange of Berber backdrops and vintage flea market finds.
Service styleThe staffers, a majority of whom are native to the area, embody a certain friendliness so inherent to village life: guests find it delightfully easy to request spice recommendations at the herb shop or learn more about the blossoming greens while strolling the sprawling gardens.
Preferred room typeGo Deluxe with the so-named Suites; the large, open spaces boast clean walls interspersed with artwork and Zellige tiling. Request one with a garden terrace for that extra pop.
Unique property featuresCentral to the property's raison d'etre is a sense of giving back to the local community. Guests are invited to participate in the onsite, non-profit arts center, Dar al-Ma'mun, home to an impressive multi-lingual library and which hosts an ongoing cycle of cultural talks, lectures, and Q&As from the city's enthusiastic literati.
