Morocco’s iconic hotel Dar Ahlam has joined Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s (SLH) portfolio. Built in 1920 on what was once the Sultan’s hunting ground, Dar Ahlam, a 19th century kasbah situated on the fringes of the Moroccan desert in the city of Ouarzazate, underwent a complete renovation in 2002, becoming one of Morocco’s most exclusive hotels. The property features 14 guestrooms, all with views of the Atlas Mountains, with each suite being individually designed with decor that changes with the seasons. All rooms have luxurious en-suite bathrooms and fireplaces, while only a few boast outdoor terraces or private swimming pools.
Because the hotel does not offer an onsite restaurant, each individual dining experience is created personally for guests with meals crafted from local ingredients sourced from the souk or grown in the hotel’s garden. There are dozens of spots inside and outside of the hotel where private dinners are intricately organized by the property’s team of 80 staff members. Experiences include an alfresco lunch in the garden, a picnic in the Sidi Fla gorges and dinner in the Valley of the Roses. Rates start at $970 per night.
