What we like about this property

Formerly a spiritual retreat, this 17th-century riad in Marrakech brings the past and present alive with authentic detail, delicious food, and timeless North African design. In restoring its simple beauty and ancient charms, this small luxury hotel in Marrakech shares in the richly layered culture and flavors of Morocco. 

Description

Located in the heart of the Medina, this small luxury hotel is a serene and meditative retreat that has undergone a subtle and chic transformation, delivering the best of comfort and authentic Moroccan style.

First restored in 1999 by owner and designer Valerie, with the help and advice of Belgian architect Quentin Wilbaux, the structure and interiors were carefully considered in order to preserve and reveal the buildings’ original character. A true connoisseur of the medina and its Saadian architectural origins, all materials were chosen with simplicity and authenticity in mind with cedar wood, cement tiles, furnishings and textiles that correspond to ancestral Moroccan culture. As with most riads, the spaces are composed of a vertical wrap around profile that provides a spacious and intimate environment as well as bright open spaces arranged around an interior courtyard and terraces. The inward focus and proportions make the courtyard the calm and cool central lounge area for relaxing and dining. 

Respectful of tradition, the owner worked with local artisans to create a space with an authentic soul and a history. With earthy concrete finishes, a cool neutral palette and a simple and understated mix of authentic Moroccan and custom furnishings and decor, there are also paintings, photographs and traces of the many artists who have stayed here. With four en suite bedrooms, the hotel can sleep up to twelve with the option of renting the whole house if you choose. The chef focuses on healthy, locally sourced and seasonal products cooked according to the principles of Moroccan cuisine with breakfast served daily in the courtyard and there is spa with specially created 100% natural ingredients.  

Tastefully preserved and restored, this boutique hotel is a cooly refined and deeply  relaxing escape designed for total well-being and inspired by an abiding love for the fascinating city that is Marrakech. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Concierge services available. Daily breakfast included with optional additional meals and cooking classes on request. Optional spa and massage services on request. Wifi throughout, housekeeping and laundry services. Airport transfers on request at €20 per couple.

AROUND

Marrakech’s famed Medina is the vibrant heart of the city with its colorful maze of souks, markets and cafes. The nearby Atlas Mountains and Ourika Valley are ideal for day trips and the three hour drive to the Atlantic coast is worth the trip for the UNESCO World Heritage Site of El Jadida, a fortified former Portuguese colony that features both western and eastern influences. The laid back beach town of Essaouira with sandy-colored ramparts, whitewashed avenues, French-style piazzas and fishing port are just south of the iconic city of Casablanca.

    Dar Kawa est un riad situé dans la Médina de Marrakech à proximité de la Madersa Ben Youssef. Il est composé de quatre chambres décorées de façon contemporaines mais dans la tradition marocaine. Celles-ci sont très confortables, décorées avec charme et raffinement. Le linge de lit et de bains sont des créations de la propriétaire, Valérie Barkowski. C’est un véritable havre de paix. Le chant des oiseaux vous accompagne dans le patio où vous pouvez lire et vous détendre. Abdellhadi et Saïda vous reçoivent avec générosité et s’occupent de vous de façon impeccable. Abdellhadi vous guide dans les bons plans et les beaux endroits à visiter. Saïda vous prépare une cuisine fine et délicieuse ! Un service impeccable toujours avec le sourire.

    Accueil personnalisé dès l’arrivée à l’aéroport et accompagnement jusqu’au Riad dans un endroit caché. Dès l’ouverture de la porte, voici le pays enchanteur que Valérie Barkowski nous offre où chaque objet a sa place, le luxe raffiné. Le linge de lit et de bain signés VB sont exceptionnels de qualité et de beauté Seulement 4 chambres /suites pour les amateurs d’authenticité. Le petit déjeuner composé de produits frais du site se prend en terrasse sur le toit ou dans le jardin intérieur.

    Dar Kawa nous emmène dans un rêve qui nous donne l’envie de revenir encore et encore.
    Merci à Valérie Barkowski de l’avoir créé.
    Astuce pour la chambre : elles sont toutes différentes dans l’aménagement et la décoration. A vous de choisir…

    I had a very good time in Marrakech. Especially my stay at your Dar Kawa was wonderful!
    It’s so beautiful, so quiet and peaceful, an oasis in this busy medina.
    And your staff is so friendly and helpful, again a lot of thanks to them !
    Also for me it was a pleasure to meet you, thank you that you have taken the time to meet.
    And thanks again for all your suggestions for visits, trips etc.
