"Luxury, simplicity, an elegant Riad with uncompromising style, the House of Tranquillity..."

CourtyardThe Blue RoomMistress Room

Four Ensuite Guest Rooms

Darhani is an elegant riad in the heart of the Marrakech Medina. It has a central courtyard and pool, and has been decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout, mixing the traditional with the modern to create a chic and original style.

Darhani, which means "house of tranquillity" is located in a nice area near the Rue de Bacha with its antique and jewellery shops. It is also just an 8-10 minute walk from the magic of the legendary Jemaa el Fna square - a haphazard marketplace by day, but at dusk, transformed into a nocturnal carnival of performers with the world's most amazing outside dining area. The Darhani riad is a few minutes walk from the souks, the Ben Medersa and Musee de Marrakech.

Darhani is exceptional in that, although it has only four bedrooms, it has three sitting rooms and an amazing tented terrace, as well as a dining room.

At the Darhani we offer a vegetarian menu for both lunch and dinner service, and have an excellent cook (Khadija). Breakfast is included, and varies each day. We have an English speaking manager who can organise tour guides, excursions and book restaurants for you.

Base prices are in £Sterling: Euro, USD and Moroccan dirham rates will vary by exchange rate.

"...The service we have received at Darhani has been second to none!!! Each and every member of staff has ensured our stay has been stress free and enjoyable - I was even surprised with a birthday cake as I returned to our room following my birthday treat of a hamman massage.
Sarah has been brilliant, her talk on the first morning left us fully prepared for our first encounter into the medina and got us through our week in marrakech.
Thank you to everyone at Darhani for making our stay enjoyable."

Hollie and Pete

"...Last but not least is the fabulous service received from all the staff. Thanks to Sarah for all the invaluable information, to Hannan for a lovely birthday cake, to Ali for crepes in the evening and drinks served by all the staff on request.
A lovely place to visit and one to recommend."

Julie and Nicole

"Thank you all for a wonderful stay. We will be back.
Tip - If you're lost....ask the women!"

Jack and Steph

"What a magical place. Thank you to all the staff, especially Ali and Sarah for making our stay so wonderful. We'll find it hard to tear ourselves away. Muchas gracias."

Becky and Liz

"Home from home...What a place!
Planned to stay 4 nights which soon turned to a week and vow to return! What a team of hospitality, cuisine, care and fun await you at Darhani - turning every whimsical idea into a reality effortlessly. Thank you, thank you! As for the Riad, every minute detail is taken care of and thought about - the perfect calm oasis to restore thoughts and rest before discovery of another characterful corner of Marrakech.
We will be back...mark my words!"

Anna and Husband

"We have had the perfect honeymoon in Marrakech! Arriving to champagne, roses and rose petals on our bed was the most amazing start. The Darhani has been a beautiful, restful place of tranquillity in a crazy city, and knowing we had it to come back after every adventure out was lovely. Sarah is a wonderful manager. All the staff here are wonderful, helpful and unobtrusive, the Riad is fantastically run!"

Andrew and Clive

"Darhani was/is an amazingly well run and maintained Dar. When we go back to Marrakesh it is on the list of places to stay and has made it to our recommendations on facebook and it takes a lot to get on there! the staff is helpful beyond expectation, the ambiance is great and everything in general is fab about it, particularly the location - you are at the edge yet in the centre!"


"The hip Marrakech App is fantastic for our clients in that it enables our guests to venture out with confidence, to find their way around the Medina, their way to restaurants (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and back to the riad easily through the winding and confusing street of Marrakech. What is more, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Darhani

"The free hip Marrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find tgheir way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Marrakech Riads

Darhani, which means "house of tranquility" is located virtually in the centre of the Medina, near Sidi Abdel Aziz, a few minutes walk from the souks and less than 10 minutes from the magic of the legendary Jemaa El Fna, a haphazard marketplace by day, but at dusk, transformed into a nocturnal carnival of performers, and the world’s most amazing outside dining area, where you can just observe this fascinating spectacle, or sample the vast array of dining experiences.
