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
We stayed 3 nights and eat in 2 nights. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home with superb service and a very homely feel in luxurious but characterful surroundings. We eat twice in the restaurant which was excellent as was the breakfast. A real find. Even on leaving we were unexpectedly given a bag of food with packed lunch to see us on to our next stop.
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in November. We would rate the décor and service very highly, although we didn't get the 5 star treatment some of the other reviewers received i.e. no phone and not many instructions about getting around. However the staff were very attentive. The breakfast was a bit minimalistic compared to other establishments on our 14 day tour. An omelette or a boiled egg was an extra! which rather surprised us.
Having said that I would not hesitate to recommend this delightful spot to anyone visiting Marakesh
This place is amazing! The location, service and food are perfect. Walk into a lot attractions in mins. For dinner, I love Morocco style monkfish:)) something special about this Riad, is their decorations. So many details make everywhere beautiful!
We absolutely loved it! Great location, great staff, always happy to chat, great room and service, and amazing food! The chef did everything to acommodate my gluten-free requirements. They recommended and organised amazing tours for us and made our Marrakesh experience incredible! 5 stars +
I just returned from a 4 night stay at Dar Anika and I don’t have the words to say how incredible it was. There is nothing the staff would not do to please their guests. Truly above and beyond service. Clean, great food, they will set up any tours or restaurants you want to visit, and make sure you know everything you need to know before going out into the city. Thank you to their entire staff. If you are traveling to Marrakech this is THE place to stay and I will be back!
