Five En-suite Guest Rooms

Located in the desirable Bab Doukkala, Dar Rocmarra is a stunning, authentic riad, which has been totally refurbished by local master craftsmen. Original features such as cedar wood beamed ceilings, with the addition of en-suite bathrooms in traditional sculpted tadelakt, and elegant arches and columns all make Dar Rocmarra a unique place to stay in the heart of the Marrakech medina.

It has five en-suite bedrooms, all with air-conditioning, and a plunge pool for all guests. Each bedroom has been individually designed by the English owners; however, whilst all are different in style, all offer the highest level of comfort. The Douria Suite can accommodate four people on request.

A sunny courtyard is shaded by a 100 year old Olive tree. The sunken Bhou (seating area) with its cosy open fire and sumptuous velvet cushions is a lovely place to relax, read, catch-up on emails, take a pre-dinner drink, or just listen to the water trickle into the petal-strewn dipping pool.

The roof terrace offers dramatic views over the roof tops of Marrakech towards the snow-capped mountain. You can recline on sofas or sun loungers and soak up the sun, take breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just enjoy a drink under the pergola and watch the sun set. There is also a cooling shower.

The exceptional in-house Moroccan cuisine - prepared by the head-chef, Jamila - is available for Lunch or Dinner service and comes highly recommended. However, you are just a few minutes walk from some of the most renowned restaurants of Marrakech.

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

"The inside of the riad is elegant and classy, but has a comforting, cozy feel as well. We very much enjoyed eating by the fireplace and reading quietly on the couch after our meal. The rooms were similarly comfortable, the bathrooms spacious, and the heating/air conditioning inside the room was a welcome luxury. Jamila honestly made the best food we had during our 10-day stay in Morocco, and we had the good fortune to stay at many different riads in many locations around the country. We highly recommend staying at Dar Rocmarra, and look forward to doing so the next time we are in Marrakech."


"From the moment we arrived until we left, we were treated beautifully. Jamila's excellent cooking, directions for culinary schools, hamman experiences and rooftop meals rounded out the fun chaos of the markets and souks. To top it off, we met other like-minded travelers and spent relaxing times in front of a roaring fire with carafes of coffee and bottles of wine poring over maps and sharing experiences. The owner was there the weekend we were there and she was just the kind of efficient and warm-hearted person you would hope would be taking care of you on a foreign voyage. I cannot say enough about the comfort and pleasure of this place. As others warn, don't be put off by the alley leading to it. It is just the way the old city looks on the outside. A big thank you to Jamilia and Jamil for a wonderful experience."

Debbie, Lakenheath, UK

"A superb riad tucked away down a small alley in the medina. The hotel was astonishingly quiet in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech , a five star experience in all respects. Jamilla the manager was also an excellent cook and provided us with two fantastic meals. Highly recommend and if we return to Marrakech we will revisit the Dar Rocmarra."

Jeremy, Norwich, UK

"Then whole experience of staying in Dar Rocmarra was a delight. Jamilla and jelil were helpful, kind and thoughtful in every way. Their attention to detail was most impressive. It is an oasis after the craziness of the streets of Marrakech and lovely to return there every day to a warm welcome, relaxation by Jelil's fire or rest on the terrace. It is scrupulously clean and the breakfasts are delicious and beautifully served.
We can't praise it too highly."

A Guest, Ireland

"The free Hipmarrakech 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 their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Hip Marrakech
