A CHARMING HISTORICAL RIAD IN A MAGICAL CITY
Our Marrakech Riad is an ancient medina home built around a central courtyard, cosy and intimate. Nestled away at the end of a peaceful lane, to step across the threshold is to enter a different world, a wonderful calm escape from the frenetic pace of the medina. Dar Zaman is a colourful fusion of ancient and modern Morocco.
“A beautiful, intimate hideaway in the quieter reaches of the northern medina, whose warm service makes for an unforgettable stay” – i-escape
The word “riad” means “garden” in Arabic and refers to the garden courtyard around which riad homes are built. The courtyard is open to the sky and is naturally cool and air-conditioned and includes a water feature. The courtyard is our small jungle, with palm trees, lemon and orange trees, a banana tree and bougainvillea reaching up to the roof terrace above.
THE PLUNGE POOL
The Dar Zaman courtyard features a small plunge pool with wall fountain which is wonderful for cooling off after a day of exploring. It’s not big enough to swim lengths, but it’s great for soothing tired feet or totally submerging for a shock cooling down treatment.
THE SALONS & DINING
Dar Zaman has three lounges around the courtyard area, ideal for relaxing with a good book, taking a delicious mint tea, or sitting in front of the log fire in the winter months. Here is also where we serve breakfast and dinner. The riad is your home in Marrakech and we invite you to enjoy every one of these spaces.
THE SUN TERRACE
The roof terrace is perfect for catching some sun, sipping tea and appreciating the sounds of medina life and the call of the muezzin. Enjoy views over the Marrakech medina rooftops to the Koutoubia minaret and the stunning snow-capped High Atlas Mountains on a clear day.
