This was our first trip to Marrakech and Dar Darma exceeded our expectations in every way. The decor was perfect and the staff was top notch. We stayed in the blue suite for three nights and the red suite for one. Both were absolutely beautiful and we felt right at home. We began each morning by having breakfast on the...

We stayed at Riad Dar Darma for three nights in the red suite. It felt exotic and extravagant, with fantastic Moroccan interior design and plenty of space for the three of us. The staff were friendly and helpful - they booked restaurants for us, arranged massages and gave us lots of advice about how to find our way around the...

Beautiful riad, in the heart of the medina. Much has been written here already about the beauty of the decoration and furnishings, but for me the quality of service is the stand-out feature of Dar Darma. The team of Said,Yazin,Maria and Abdul, all of whom speak impeccable English (for those for whom this is a must) are knowledgeable, professional, good-humored...

restored Riad in the medina with extravagant and sophisticated forniture, in the middle between tradition and modern. Service is excellent (flowers in the apartment, drinks and coffee in the room for free, conciergerie, ...). Cooking class with Maria on the terrace absolutely to do as well as the dinner on the terrace. The red and the blue apartments are the...

There are many, beautifully restored Riads in Marrakech. Some have remained 'traditional', others have gone the minimalist route. Dar Darma has gone it's own unique way. It is an extravagant, exquisite piece of set design that will take your breath away. Add to that impeccable service and it's heaven. I will be back again and again

This riad was like staying in a fairytale palace! We stayed in the Red apartment and loved it! The staff was so attentive and always ready to help. We enjoyed returning to a beautiful fire, some Moroccan wine and olives, after an afternoon of exploring the Medina. Breakfast and lunch on the rooftop terrace was wonderful! The food was so...

We stayed in two different hotels in Marrakesh-- Dar Darma and the Riad Idra. They are about the same price, very different in style but both are very luxurious and comfortable. To be honest, we like the Riad Idra better and think it's of better value, but the stay at Dar Darma is a very unique experience which we did...

This riad is amazing.... The staff treated us like royalty, the rooms are stunning, with parts of it dating back hundreds of years. This place is like a sanctuary. We have stayed in Marrakech around six times previous to this visit, staying at a 5* hotel & other riads... All of which are of a 5* status, but this place...

Dar Darma is an oasis of calm in a totaly hectic city. Behind an unimposing entrance is a secret world waiting to be discovered by those fortunate enough to stay there.
