Dar El Sadaka

Marrakesh, Morocco
A Dreamlike Oasis of Luxury & Whimsy

This dreamlike oasis is everything you imagine of Marrakesh - with a few charming surprises! The exotic romance and distinctive beauty of Morocco is mixed with a stylish mix of European influences, along with the whimsical, magical realist animal sculptures that inhabit the property by French artist Jean-Francois Fourtou.   

Purchased in 1995 by two friends, the villa was initially a residence for artists, inspiring Fourtou’s work during his time living here, as well as a humanitarian organization and a yoga/meditation retreat.

Redesigned by Philippe Forrestier into a luxurious full service retreat, the property is a playful fusion of style, culture and artistic creation, designed to delight and inspire. 

Dar El Sadaka recently won a Condé Nast Johansens Award of Excellence for the third year in a row, with the 2022 award for best villa in the Mediterranean region. What they said: "Dar El Sadaka is a stunning, quirky and utterly unique villa. Offering an out-of-the-ordinary experience, it’s situated just outside Marrakech and it’s unlike anywhere in Morocco; in fact, it’s unlike anywhere else in the world."

Laid out on over 25 acres of oasis-like gardens, this sprawling luxury villa just outside of Marrakesh deftly illustrates the cultural intersection of European and North African style along with the whimsical and magical works of French artist Jean-Francois Fourtou. 

The property was designed in an unusual combination of luxury and serenity with a deeply rooted tradition of hospitality, ensuring an atmosphere of harmony and relaxation.

The spacious interiors are stylishly composed of contemporary and classic Moroccan furnishings and art that highlight the romantic old-world beauty of Morocco with chic understated elegance. 

The nine independent suites are individually themed and decorated and are distributed around the mimosa courtyard with room for up to 20 guests. The property includes a library and home cinema, spa facilities with hammam, fitness room, tennis courts and a boules court. 

The private chef and staff serve a delicious menu of classic Moroccan and international cuisine with locally sourced ingredients and fresh produce from the on-site organic gardens. Guests can enjoy an enchanted dinner under the Tree of 1000 candles, in the sumptuous Caidale Tent, or under the stars on the roof terrace. 

The extensive property features cozy alcoves, lounging areas, courtyards and patios tucked away among the gardens along with the large swimming pool surrounded by olive trees and promenades that invite you to stroll or lounge within view of the majestic Atlas Mountains. Offering all the fun and amenities of a modern hotel, this luxurious estate is an idyllic Moroccan retreat.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Fully staffed with concierge services, guided tours and excursions, car and driver services, private chef and wait staff, daily housekeeping with turndown service and laundry services, spa, massage and beauty services, personal trainer, yoga, Tai-Chi and tennis lessons, childcare. Luxury, organic bath amenities. Wifi throughout with a home cinema and media room.

  

AROUND

Just a few miles northeast of central Marrakesh, the famed Medina is a short drive into the vibrant heart of the 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 influence. 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.

Marrakech international airport is open and we are ready to welcome you back in our private villa, your home away from home. Our guests’ wellbeing and peace of mind are our top priorities. We will continue to share the Dar El Sadaka magic and provide the outstanding service we are known for in the safest way possible. Our team has been extremely busy behind the scenes putting robust new practices into place that not only adhere to all of the Moroccan government preventive health measures, but go above and beyond to ensure our guests fully enjoy their stay with confidence. We work daily to provide a safe and protected environment. The cleaning of our villa has always been carried out in the most meticulous way and we added rigorous protocols for sanitising surfaces before, during and after each stay. Our staff have been trained to follow responsible individual protection measures, maintain appropriate physical distance and safely use the personal protective equipment they wear. Food preparation and service are given the utmost care and attention in a thoroughly sanitised environment. Our villa is left vacant for a minimum of 48 hours before the next arrival and mandatory non-touch temperature checks are being carried out at our front gate for everyone entering the property. Face masks, alcohol-based hand sanitiser and disinfecting wipes are provided to our guests as soon as they arrive at the airport. Should any of our guests have any health concerns during their stay, we will immediately contact our referring doctors for appropriate medical assistance. We also have separated rooms on property dedicated to self-isolation if necessary. Our processes will be continuously refreshed, adapted and improved following the Moroccan government health authorities’ guidelines and international standards, and our staff will receive further training on an ongoing basis accordingly. Whilst our smiles are hidden, our passion for hospitality sparkles brighter than ever in our eyes. We want Dar El Sadaka to be your refuge, a haven for you, your family and your friends to be together away from the crowds and make everlasting magical holiday memories. Our team is at your disposal to answer all your questions. Pascal Gaona Managing Director at Dar El Sadaka 15 October 2020
