Dar Ahlam, Skoura, Morocco
Hidden away in the pretty palmerie of the small town of Skoura, Dar Ahlam can be reached by a series of small tracks winding their way through the palm grove. Based around a labyrinthine converted kasbah from the early 20th century, this luxurious property consists of nine suites and three private villas in the attractive gardens. Each of the suites are spacious and chic in a minimalist style, with sizeable baths in the en suite bathrooms and a sitting room complete with dressing area and open fire, while the each of the villas has two sitting rooms and a plunge pool.
The main kasbah is a warren of scented corridors, alcoves and grand archways, very deliberately creating an authentic and discreet atmosphere. Each meal is taken privately in a different location, whether it be somewhere inside the kasbah or outside in the two hectares of gardens, so guests will never have to repeat the same view or experience. A large pool in the garden is complemented by a luxurious hammam, jacuzzi and massage rooms.
An all inclusive stay gives guests access to the hammam, use of mules and camels to explore the palmerie and a cookery course, all adding up to make Dar Ahlam more an indulgent all round experience than a hotel for the night.
