It's hard to believe that this idyllic hideaway is only a few kilometres from Marrakech's bustling Medina. A country house with a beautifully verdant three-acre garden, filled with roses, olive and fruit trees and bougainvillea, Dar Zemora feels very much like a private house, not a hotel.
Dar Zemora is more like a private house than a hotel, and decorated with impeccable taste. There is a large pool surrounded by a huge lawn and an adjacent terrace for al fresco dining. The 6 rooms are stylishly and tastefully appointed, and are only steps away from the pool. One of the suites comprises two rooms in a separate pavilion in the garden, with its own pool. The service deftly treads the fine line between highly professional and discreetly unobtrusive, and Jamila the chef produces delicious food for informal lunches and dinners on the terrace.

- Because the hotel is so small, an à la carte restaurant is not appropriate. Instead, a two course lunch is served daily and dinner is served at 8.30pm and might consist of three courses of Moroccan fine cuisine, or a tasting menu of more international dishes. On Sundays, chef Jamila serves a more traditional Moroccan 4 course dinner.
