Dar Taraf is an ultra-stylish contemporary take on a classic Moroccan riad, set on the outskirts of the dazzling Marrakesh, featuring opulent interiors, indoor and outdoor pools and sumptuous living spaces.
Finessed with a charismatic blend of lavish style, Hispano-Moorish influences and Arabic hospitality, this chic retreat sets a new standard for a riad break. Nestled in an oasis-style garden, amid date palms beneath the Atlas Mountains, guests would be forgiven for thinking they had stepped into the pages of Arabian Nights.
Up to ten people can be accommodated across five bedrooms and five bathrooms, in a want-for-nothing, airily proportioned space that envelopes its guests in comfort, serenity and designer flair. In classic Morrocan style, this sedate dwelling is set across a series of internal courtyards, with sharp stucco walls softened with timeless arches, while the interiors feature glitzy fabrics and sleek marble.
The immaculate outdoors sets the scene for a dreamy break, with glistening, serene pool waters framed by indulgent lounges and elegant parasols. Imagine reclining with a cool drink in the early evening sun, or an evening cocktail as the illuminated space comes into its own. Dining in the cool arches of the veranda will hit the right note, perhaps a traditional chef-prepared lunch.
Morrocan residences are constructed with seclusion in mind - inward focussed, they allow for both privacy and protection from Moroccan weather, and the elegant courtyards feature airy spaces for a blend of indoor and outdoor living.
With a fusion of flamboyant, ultra-luxe style, natural timbers, glossy marbles, tactile drapes and unadulterated glamour, this alluring home features a natural flow between living spaces, exquisite internal arches, together with all the contemporary touches.
With a gym, a cinema room, a games room and staff presence including house-keeping, concierge, care-taker and private chef, guests’ every need will be taken care of.
For a touch of rock-and-roll decadence, Arabian glamour and riad-chic - simply look no further than Dar Taraf for your unique stay.
Dar Taraf is nestled in the northeastern suburbs of the vibrant Marrakesh, between the bustling Annakhil and the airy and opulent Palmeraie, just a short distance to the Medina and souks of downtown.
Morocco is a country of allure, mystery and beauty, and Marrakesh offers a colourful and eclectic blend of old and new, known as the “jewel of the south,” of the “Red City.” Mystical, vivacious and exotic, it is brimming with markets, gardens, palaces and mosques, while the souks are the place to head for ethnic and hand-crafted wares, the alleyways and tea shops of the historic Medina will offer an enchanting afternoon’s exploration. When the hustle and bustle of the souks get too much, escaping to the cooling enclave of the Jardin Majorelle will offer verdant respite from the crowds with exotic plants and fountains, while Bahia Palace is an awe-inspiring example of imperial architecture.
The suburb of Annakhil offers access to rolling golf courses, lush palm groves, with paths and horse-carriage tours through 100,000 trees at El Palmerai. The Musée de la Palmeraie offers a taste of artistic heritage with beautiful Moroccan paintings in a 1940s colonial farmhouse.
Dar Taraf, set below the Atlas Mountains, enjoys the cooling openness and greenery of the suburbs, with easy proximity to the centre of Marrakesh, for the best of both worlds.
