Why we like it
- Dar Ahlam stands in the region of the thousand Kasbahs between the peaks of the High Atlas and the gateway to the South Moroccan desert, surrounded by lush gardens
- All rooms and villas are spacious, with air-conditioning, fireplaces, roomy bathrooms and views of the Atlas Mountains
- Inspired Moroccan cuisine is served in a cosy corner of the kasbah or on a secret terrace
- The spa offers treatments ranging from Thai massages to Moroccan mud scrubs
- Dar Ahlam has an outdoor swimming pool, whilst the villas have their own private pools
- The property is on a full board basis so all meals, drinks, excursions and cooking classes are included
With no restaurant, meals can be served wherever you wish around the property. Find a secluded atmospheric courtyard just for yourselves and have it lit with candles and just local musicians for company.
It’s been a pleasure working with Ailine on the past two trips (Morocco and Iceland). Her efficiency, attention to detail and prompt action have been hugely valuable and ultimately led to the delivery of two hugely successful trips which our clients have been beyond impressed by.

If the setting for this Kasbah, between the drama of the Atlas Mountains and the emptiness of the Sahara is not astonishing enough, then the building itself surely is. In the style of a traditional Kasbah, it is genuinely jaw-dropping. The brainchild of a Parisian party planner it is an intimate and hugely luxurious retreat behind bright ochre walls.
The suites and villas are fabulous. All have been decorated individually, using antiques and silk curtains to add splashes of colour and personality. The three villas are arranged around a central patio, each with a terrace, a fireplace and a private heated pool.
Once part of a medieval sultan's private hunting ground in the Skoura Oasis, this towering rust-red fortress surrounded by a palm grove really is a 'House of Dreams', as its name translates. Facilities and activities include a Hammam and solarium, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, quad-biking, buggy, camel and mule rides, and hiking.
Best time to be there
Morocco is warm and sunny year round. The best time to visit is mid-February to June and September to December. Coastal Morocco is cooled by sea breezes. The peaks of the Atlas Mountains are snow-capped for most of the year.
