Dar Zemora, less than a half hour drive away from the international airport, offers you a comfortable stay merely a step away from the bustling medina of Marrakech. Overlooked by the Atlas Mountains, the boutique hotel is styled like a sprawling countryside estate designed with graceful Moroccan and colonial European overtones. Think pastel shaded organza curtains, Islamic geometric designs, traditional rugs and artefacts, plush cushions, trellised gazebos and landscaped gardens. Stay in elegant rooms done up with traditional Tatoui elements, a cozy fireplace, your own private balcony, and ensuite bathrooms. Stroll around the estate gardens or lounge by your balcony. There’s much to do around Marrakech, and after a day of sightseeing, soak in the outdoor pool, or refresh yourself with pots of Morocco’s signature mint tea by the poolside. Indulge yourself at the traditional hammam or catch a game of croquet. Enjoy sumptuous luncheons at the dining room or by the poolside. Call it a day with a romantic alfresco dining experience under a star-studded silken Moroccan sky.
