Dar Zemora is one of the best small boutique hotels in Marrakech. The 3 luxurious and spacious suites with their four poster beds and private terraces, and 3 elegant rooms are all individually designed. Traditional finishes have been used throughout the hotel such as tadalkt walls, bejmat floors, hand-painted zouak ceilings and doors and moucharabieh woodwork.
What makes this gorgeous small hotel special, however, is the many and beautifully appointed reception rooms as well as the hammam, treatment and small shop. Space to be social or not as the mood dictates. From the traditional gatehouse a driveway of olive trees leads you up to the house. After entering the turreted hall you find yourself in an enormous circular domed reception room. Two large sitting rooms lead off this room, both with comfortable armchairs and sofas, and one with a large welcoming fire in winter. For those who really want to retreat there is a cosy library with fireplace and an intricate hand-painted ceiling. The last and most impressive reception room is the airy Fan Room, perfectly named after its shape. It is an inside/outside room where guests can relax during the day or take an aperitif in the evening.
Next to the large and free flowing swimming pool are cushioned teak sun-beds with umbrellas. The garden, filled with orange and lemon trees and of course palms, roses, oleander and bourganvillea, has been created by a designer who has paid special attention to providing quiet areas and little pathways perfect for a quiet stroll. There is also a separate treatment room for massages and Hammam. The aim of Dar Zemora is to create a tranquil haven with friendly but unobtrusive service within a luxurious but understated setting.
The dining room at Dar Zemora has a terrace overlooking the lily pond for quiet lantern-lit dinners. Zemora breakfast, English tea & home made cake, and still mineral water are complimentary. Complimentary morning mint tea is also served on request. A two course light lunch and three course modern Moroccan dinner are served everyday, except on Sunday evening when a more traditional 4-course Moroccan dinner is served. Please advise if dinner is required on the first night. For all other days, dinner is discussed with all guests over breakfast. The two course lunch is 150 dirhams per person plus 10% government taxes; dinner is 300 dirhams per person plus 10% government taxes.
