You’ll find nary a stereotypical Moroccan touch in this tin lantern and velour cushion–free hotel. Instead, Dar Sabra trades on a chic, cosmopolitan vibe throughout its recently refurbished rooms and suites. Surrounded by pale pink adobe walls, the hotel reveals its modern edge in gardens with rare art sculptures like a topiary bull and a 10-foot-tall steel gorilla.
Bed and Bath
The recently refurbished modern wing houses vast contemporary suites that feature comfy platform beds, pendant cage lamps and bathrooms with deep plunge bathtubs and walk-in showers. Each shares a 650-foot lap pool and has its own private courtyard with colorful Pop Art frescos by artist Erró. In the older wing, themed suites, such as Art Deco, Moroccan and Nomad, blend a Zen vibe with such stately touches as spiral wood columns, wall tapestries and animal-print bedspreads. Slightly removed is the two-bedroom Villa di Rosa, which has a private entrance and a lap pool.
The contemporary art collection, assembled by owner François Chaputot, forms a sort of offbeat alfresco gallery. Chaputot also hosts private art tours and extends invitations to guests to join him for family-style dinners. The hotel’s restaurant dishes up Moroccan, French or Asian cuisine using the freshest produce, and you can choose to take breakfast and lunch outside overlooking the pool or in the Berber tent. Days are spent sipping cocktails by the five pools, playing a match of table (or full-size) tennis and winding down with an exfoliating body scrub or a Moroccan tonic massage at the spa.
How to Get There
It was not the first time visiting Marrakesh and Dar Sabra is an amazing place to stay. It is very peaceful, there is a gym, very nice tennis court, three pools, nice food, great service. Very comfortable rooms and beautiful architecture. I will definitely recommend this place! Adrian, Hassan and the stuff are very kind and helpful with organizing anything we asked. We had an amazing vacation and will be back to Dar Sabra.
If you are after a quiet and peaceful break, then this is the perfect destination!
The food offering isn’t great and the manager is, in an endearing way is Morocco’s answer to basil faulty!
The rooms are spacious, well maintained and the bath is ginormous! Book directly with the hotel or through the hotel tonight app for the best price!
All in all I will be back
Super nice location with lots of greens, a gym, a tennis court etc.. BUT the service is really one of the worst i witnessed... further the hygiene should be further improved... i complained several times that the dishes are dirty (e.g. coffee mugs were dirty, even other guests told us). it seems they did not take my feedback into consideration...
With a little bit more afford this could be a really nice place to enjoy your holiday..
