A home away from home, Dar Anika in Marrakech offers a comfortable, indulgent and personal experience. With just 12 individually styled rooms, a tranquil courtyard swimming pool, traditional Moroccan décor and hammam treatments, this unique destination provides a beautiful oasis away from the vibrant sights and sounds of the medina, Jamaâ El Fna Square and Bahia Palace – each located just a short distance from the charming hotel grounds.
Dar Anika’s friendly staff members are on call to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible, from the chilled mineral water and fresh flowers left in your room on arrival, to the complimentary Moroccan breakfast, delicious afternoon tea and cakes and complimentary services. The private roof terrace affords stunning views over the surrounding city and Atlas mountains, whether you soak up the sun there through the day or relax with a drink in the evening.
Featuring traditional Moroccan décor and design details, guest rooms at Dar Anika celebrate comfort, flair and imagination. Riad rooms are complete with his-and-hers bathrobes, an en-suite walk-in shower room, safes for your belongings, fridges and hair dryers. They’re smaller than the hotel’s Superior rooms, which are luxurious and house a sofa.
Dar Anika focuses its food offering around the rich ingredients and succulent flavors of traditional Moroccan cuisine. After sampling the hotel’s complimentary pastries and full Moroccan breakfast, you can relax with a light lunch or BBQ in the afternoon. In the evening, you can sample wines from the hotel bar’s extensive list, alongside the delicious dinners that are served under Morocco’s stunning starry skies.
Just a five minute walk from Jemaa el-Fna Square and 500 yards from the Bahia Palace, Dar Anika is set among some of Marrakech’s most picturesque attractions. For those wishing to venture out, the stunning Barrage Lalla Takerkoust lake is under 20 miles away, while the souk is just next door, should you want to take a stroll through a traditional Moroccan market that’s right on your doorstep.
How to Get There
This is a gorgeous riad that is just a feast for your eyes everywhere you look. The restaurant's food is incredible (don't miss the lamb!) and the staff was so warm and attentive. We loved it and are eager to go back.
Really beautiful place, with a fantastic team. Nothing is too much for them, and their genuine care, and attention to detail from the cookies, and drinks every afternoon, to the sandwiches made for us for our the trip back home. Lyanne and her team are absolutely lovely, and we will definitely be back at Dar Anika when visiting Marrakesh next. Thank you for a great stay!
We stayed at the beautiful Riad Dar Anika just last week and we're still reflecting on how wonderful our stay was. Upon our arrival we were immediately calmed by Lyanne and her amazing advice on everything - where to eat, how to get reservations, how to exchange cash, places to see. We were also given a phone to use, which was instrumental!
The location is AMAZING, right between the main taxi queue and the medina. Lyanna also helped us negotiate the right rate to get to la jardine majorelle.
The food is awesome - I can't believe breakfast was included - it is a beautiful mountainous spread of delicious breads, spreads, and delicacies.
The staff is incredible - so helpful, kind, thoughtful. We were always greeted with kindness and given everything we needed, plus more.
The room was well air conditioned, comfortable bed, perfect blackout blinds, and incredibly quiet. We were nervous we'd be awakened by the 6a call to prayer and never did it disturb our sleep.
Just when we thought we had it all, we were sent off with beautiful gifts and a delicious lunch to go. Seriously amazing and so thoughtful.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and highly recommend to our friends. Thank you Riad Dar Anika for a beautiful introduction to Marrakech, we hope to come back and stay again.
