Dar Ayniwen has been a Lawrence of Morocco favourite for the past 15 years. 

ABOUT

Out here in the leafy Palmeraie, 15 minutes from the centre of Marrakech, the city’s souks and their exotic hurly-burly will soon seem a distant memory.  Wholly serene, Dar Ayniwen’s five-acre gardens pair lily ponds and cacti with olive, oleander and orange trees while, inside, a gorgeous maze of arches, antiques and alcoves await if you fancy a wander.  Luxurious and a long-time Lawrence of Morocco favourite, this former home epitomises what it is to be a ‘retreat’.

ROOMS

The property has eight well-appointed suites and one room, each claiming its own personality and each opulently decorated with period furniture, Oriental paintings, and antique carpets.  Three Royal Suites come armed with private gardens and hot tubs, too, while two detached cottages in the grounds offer extra privacy plus large bedrooms and wrap-around terraces.

FACILITIES

The Dar’s pool is heated when necessary, and beautifully lantern-lit at night.  Rivalling it for attention are two dining rooms (one serving Moroccan food, the other European), a complimentary hammam and sauna – with great massage available in the private marble steam bath – and a large communal living room.

MORE INFO

A private office with fax and computer is available for those unable to switch off, accompanied by free Wi-Fi throughout.  Also complimentary are transfers into town with the house driver, up until midnight (the man has to sleep, after all).  Back at base, free cooking courses are on offer to guests staying four nights or more.

If you are looking for true relaxation in the palm groves of Marrakech, with easy access to the excitement of the city, look no further than Dar Ayniwen.
