On-site facilities include a spa, two pools (1 heated in winter), a restaurant, bar, library, lounge, garden, panoramic terraces, and sundecks… The ideal location to discover the southern part of Morocco as well as to relax for a few days.
Guests at Dar Al Hossoun start the day by tucking into a freshly prepared breakfast.
The lunch and dinner menus at the on-site restaurant include pan-Mediterranean dishes, Moroccan classics such as tagines, vegetable couscous and mechoui (roasted meat), Lebanese sharing platters, and seafood. All prepared using ingredients sourced from the on-site vegetable garden or neighbouring organic farmers, and served with local wines. And the team welcomes you into the kitchen for cooking demos and tastings.
Dotted around the sprawling grounds of 4-star Dar Al Hossoun boutique hotel are 3 stylish, comfortable patio rooms, 6 bungalow-style garden bedrooms with, 9 suites (6 junior and 3 superior). Ground floor Papyrus is wheelchair-friendly and located close to the main courtyard.
All of the air-conditioned guest rooms benefit from modern amenities that include a flat-screen satellite TV, minibar, hairdryer, in-room safe, complimentary toiletries, bathrobes, and authentic ‘babouche’ slippers. Colourful locally-woven rugs, tapestries, and cushions add the perfect finishing touch to the interior décor.
Dar Al Hossoun offers a relaxing haven in tranquil surroundings. On-site, guests can enjoy a traditional hammam, rejuvenating massage and wellbeing treatments, and beauty services at the spa. Sunbeds are strategically arranged around the edge of the slimline 31-metre outdoor swimming pool that's shaded with leafy palm trees and adorned with a unique assortment of botanical plants.
In the afternoon, hike or borrow a bicycle to explore the souks and nearby tannery, relax in the cosy library, or take a stroll with the owners – they've lived in Taroudant since 2009 and have a wealth of local knowledge.
