The Details...

Channelling the history of Marrakech is Dar Kawa, a 17th Century house in Medina old town that is said to be where the capital of Morocco was born. Back when it was built Dar Kawa was a meditation place of brotherhood called the zaoua of Derkaoua, and now it's a beautiful holiday escape that still maintains the same peace and tranquillity.

Restored in 1999, extreme love and care was taken to try and restore it back to its original glory, meaning that even today, it still fits in with traditional Moroccan culture and design. This traditional style has been perfectly combined with modern and luxury living to make Dar Kawa the perfect escape from the stress and strains of everyday life.

Inside there are 3 gorgeous suites and one double room. Located on the left wing, Suite Mumtaz sleeps up to 3 guests with a double and an optional additional single bed. Access to this suite is a private staircase. Light and bright, the comfy lounge area, is complete with V.Barkowski home textiles, available at the store of the owner in the medina.

The Junior Suite Omani is in the right wing, 1st floor, of the building and comprises of 2 main rooms - a double bedroom and boudoir with 2 extra beds.

The Double Room Baboune also has its own bathroom with shower and toilet. This comfy double room, which is great for couples, has exclusive bed and bath linen from V. Barkowski, duvet and pillows made of feathers, and a stylish bed in the design of Ministro del Gusto.

Finally, located on the ground floor sits Junior Suite Olmassi. It is a large room that feels as cosy as a cocoon. This suite, situated on the ground floor of the left wing, has a comfy king-size bed and an additional single bed, as well as a seating area with a fireplace. All have a separate bathroom with a shower, dressing room, and toilet.

All suites look out over the heart of Dar Kawa - the patio and terrace. With orange trees in the centre, the patio is perfect for dining or relaxing at all times of the day and guests can stretch out and enjoy each others' company on the settees and tables. A staircase then leads up to the terrace, which is a haven for shade with additional dining and seating areas on offer.

The onsite kitchen is the hub of Dar Kawa, and breakfast, lunch and dinner is created using fresh local produce and therefore is constantly changing. Meanwhile the new spa area with massage table ensures this getaway is the ideal place to unwind. Organic balms made to order for Dar Kawa are used for spa treatments.

While guests need never leave, Medina itself has plenty to offer with stunning and historical religious sites to visit such as Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, Quba Mosque and the Madain Saleh Tombs, as well as the chance to take in the hustle and bustle of one of busiest cities in Northern Africa.
