Eat & Drink

Dining in
A curved archway leads into the candlelit dining room, with its deep ochre walls, velvet cushions, pristine white linen and bold artworks. The cooking here is just as intoxicating as the setting: three nights a week it’s traditional Moroccan (dinner is bookable in advance), with classics such as chicken pastilla or the chef’s quail tagine. On other nights you can tuck into a six-course menu with more French and European flavours.

Dining moves out onto the terrace during summer months, lit by lanterns and the moon dancing off the lily pond. You can order light bites at any time, poolside or in your room. There's also complimentary afternoon tea with oven-fresh cake.

The full Zemora breakfast including Moroccan pancakes and homemade bread is served until late. No need to stir from beneath the covers early here.

Room service
Available morning and evening.


See & Do
The sights, sounds and spice-laden smells of Marrakech's crowded souks are unmissable. You’ll probably lose your way in the jostling labyrinth of alleys, but that’s part of the fun. You’ll find clusters of metal workers, spice merchants and carpet weavers, not to mention tailors and wool dyers. Towering over the scene is the tall Koutoubia minaret.

All the main sights are easily walkable from Djemma el Fna square, and lovebirds should make time for a stroll through leafy Menara Gardens or tranquil Majorelle Gardens, where Yves Saint Laurent kept a house.

See the Medina from above with a walk along the medieval ramparts and 12 miles of city walls, still standing after 700 years. You might not be after a day exploring this full-on city, so it’s probably your cue to head back to base for a blissful hamman. Great out-of-town excursions include a 4WD day out in the rugged Atlas Mountains or a trip to the coastal town of Essaouira.

Dar Zemora has a wonderfully sensual wellness suite with everything you need to wind down be pampered. Melt in the traditional hammam, try a rose-oil massage, or book a facial or manicure.
