— How would you describe Dar Ahlam in a nutshell?
The hotel’s staff creates different themes for each day of a guests’ stay, surprising them by providing different meals in unique locations. Breakfast might be in your own private space in the middle of the garden one morning, involving a specific type of cutlery or specific type of food. The morning after it will completely different, as we never repeat meals or experiences.”

— Please tell us about the rooms at Dar Ahlam.
Four superior suites are located outside the main building. These are beautiful suites and very spacious with 100 square meters each. There is also a villa in one of the gardens with a large bedroom, bathroom, a kitchenette, and a huge salon. These suites have private terraces and are more modern in design but with a little Moroccan touch.
All of the rooms are designed with different themes and their names are linked to the local history of the region where we are. They each have air-conditioning as well as heated floors and fireplaces.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at the hotel?
The house is not formal at all, but rather exudes an understated luxury, mixing rich Moroccan influences with French sophistication. Local materials were used in the construction of all quarters, such as adobe, bamboo, or lemon and olive tree wood. Dar Ahlam is elegant yet down to earth. Even when just looking at its architecture and design, the hotel really offers a unique immersion into local culture.”

— What type of food do you serve and what’s the philosophy behind it?
As we try to immerse our guests in a different experience with the food we serve, we like to offer various types of cuisine, such as Moroccan cuisine, Western style cuisine, and so on. The different recipes came together from chefs all over the world, which in itself already offers a lot of originality and diversity in the meals.
Each element of the dish, such as the type of food, its color, and the way it is served, is then included in each day’s particular experience.”

— What kind of guests is Dar Ahlam perfect for?
If we do have families with children visiting, we try to create spaces so that the families will be able to have their privacy just as all the other guests. There is plenty of space for that on the estate.”
