17 suites and three rooms.
Suites with every comfort come in styles ranging from Moroccan to Indian and Art Deco to Zen. Some offer working fireplaces, large free standing baths and lounge areas.
Top suites include the Indienne, with its huge pillared four poster bed, and the scarlet-walled Afghan suite. We also loved the decadent, all-cream tadelakt suites contemporaines around the smaller pool with their huge baths, fireplace and patio.
Eat & Drink
Guests love dining al fresco at Dar Sabra, though you can always opt for the cosy dining room on cooler nights. For the authentic Berber experience dining can be arranged under a huge traditional canvas. Menus change daily, and you can expect a mix of traditional Moroccan, Méchoui (lamb) barbecue, French and African cuisine.
Start with a delicious Moroccan salad, pastiilla or traditional harira soup, followed with a tagine or couscous and rounded off by fresh Moroccan pastries made with almonds, orange blossom water and honey.
Served until noon – so there’s no need to fall out of bed early.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
Explore the maze-like alleys of the Marrakech medina, haggling for bargains in the souks as you go. In the evenings be sure to nab a table at one of the heart-of-the-city cafes on Djemma el Fna square – buzzing with every kind of entertainment. It’s also easy to head off for the nearby Atlas mountains, and even hire a donkey to climb them.
Recharge body and soul at Dar Sabra’s spa. There's a hammam, indoor plunge pool, a massage room for side-by-side massages and a full treatment menu.
For a feast of traditional Moroccan music, dancing and folk culture head to the ruins of the El Badi Palace for the National Festival of Popular Arts.
