See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Dar Ahlam

This traditional Kasbah, on the edge of the desert in southern Morocco, has been authentically and artistically restored and still manages to feel like a private home.

Despite its remote desert location, it has sophisticated facilities and thanks to its gardens and surrounding palm groves, it feels lush and peaceful.

In addition to the nine suites, there are three villas available, each with their own private pool. Interiors are simple and stylish, with elegant furniture and billowing fabrics. The property has a large swimming pool, Hammam and Jacuzzi, and provides massage treatments in its 'wellness' riad. Cookery classes are offered at the hotel, and outside, activities include 4x4 excursions with private driver and guide into the surrounding desert, camel rides, or even an overnight stay in a desert camp.

For an authentic desert experience, opt to spend a night under the stars in a luxury tent in the sand dunes. Up to fifteen Bedouin-style tents, all adorned with Moroccan rugs and antique chests, can be set up for a private desert adventure, lit by oil lamps and a wood fire. Tents have en-suite bathrooms, living rooms and a private terrace. Supper is served around the campfire, and breakfast is at sunrise before returning to the Kasbah by 4x4.

Guests are welcome to take tea, early evening drinks, or meals al fresco in the pretty gardens, accompanied by candles in traditional lanterns by night.
