I already visited a couple of different Riads in Marrakech - but this one is from now on my absolutely favorite and the best in Marrakech with the most Extravagance & Luxury & Moroccan Authenticity & Love. I browsed in the internet for a Riad in Marrakech and discovered the DAR DARMA - it was love at first sight...

This riad was like staying in a fairytale palace! We stayed in the Red apartment and loved it! The staff was so attentive and always ready to help. We enjoyed returning to a beautiful fire, some Moroccan wine and olives, after an afternoon of exploring the Medina. Breakfast and lunch on the rooftop terrace was wonderful! The food was so...

We stayed in two different hotels in Marrakesh-- Dar Darma and the Riad Idra. They are about the same price, very different in style but both are very luxurious and comfortable. To be honest, we like the Riad Idra better and think it's of better value, but the stay at Dar Darma is a very unique experience which we did...

This riad is amazing.... The staff treated us like royalty, the rooms are stunning, with parts of it dating back hundreds of years. This place is like a sanctuary. We have stayed in Marrakech around six times previous to this visit, staying at a 5* hotel & other riads... All of which are of a 5* status, but this place...

Dar Darma is an oasis of calm in a totaly hectic city. Behind an unimposing entrance is a secret world waiting to be discovered by those fortunate enough to stay there. We had a lovely suite which was filled with all sorts of interesting antiques and marvelously quirky bathrooms. Lovely and attentive staff who could not be more helpful (Maria...

We stayed in the red apartment. It is darkly bohemian beautiful. It is private luxury in a shabby chic, story book way. The service is very personal, and super friendly. The food has a very nice morrocan-home-cooked feel to it. And the Dar Darma location great - but bring a small compass to find your way in the Medina. Over...

This visit is our fourth return to Marrakech from Geneva to escape from the European winter and our fourth visit to Dar Darma for what has become our annual tradition. What has made our visits so special has been not only the initial charm of this Riad, but of the remarkable care and personal attention that the Dar Darma team...

Just back from Dar Darma! A perfect and delicious place to choose in Marrakech. A charming riad with italian touch, remembering me a palace in Venezia. Stay in Red apartment, a huge one with painted wooden ceilings, stucco work, old doors and luxurious furnishings. Love the bathroom with the door hidden on the wardrove...like Narnia! Stuff very attentive. Had a...

It's basically a museum and we are lucky that a place like this exists for us to enjoy for a small piece of time...The staff, pool, food and drink were great as well. The bad.

Atmospheric riad with spacious rooms all individually decorated,but some of the furnishings a little shabby now. Stayed in the red apartment and hot water pressure very poor so a bath was impossible. No robes in the rooms and on request were brought dirty ones which when replaced were taken away the next morning. Same thing happened again. Hammam basic and...
