A private hideaway in the Palmeraie only fifteen minutes drive from the centre of Marrakech. Dar Ayniwen is a sumptuous Arab-Andalusian villa hotel set in five acres of beautiful gardens, strewn with palm, orange, olive, oleander and fig trees. Inside, it is a maze of tradition, where at every turn there are arches, lanterns and alcoves.
The property comprises 8 suites, each individually and richly decorated. Two of the suites have a private garden and hot tub. In addition there is a detached little house in the grounds which has a bedroom, living room with fireplace, bathroom and terrace.
Furnishings are a mixture of home-style comforts with an eclectic assortment of fine antiques amassed by the owner, plus discreet mod-cons (air conditioning, CD players, mini-bars, safes and cable TV).
The heated pool is hard to resist and, at night, when adorned by lantern-light, the effect is stunning. There are two dining rooms (Moroccan and European). There is also a living room with fireplace, hammam and sauna.
Guests are looked after by an attentive staff with 24-hour room service. There's also a private office (with fax, computer and internet) for those who find it hard to remain incommunicado.
During your stay a house car with driver is available for local travel (free of charge), for instance to take you to dinner or to spend the afternoon at Jamaa Lafna (the main square in Marrakech).
