Again this year, Christmas shopping is the main focus of Dar Darma, the prestigious mansion in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech.
Until December, the riad will put a personal shopper service at its guests’ disposal to discover the coolest places of the town. Marrakech, known all over the world for its crowded and colored markets and its many artisan little shops, keeps being one of the most favorite destinations for the lovers of shopping.
The capable local guide will lead you to search for the best business and will give you some precious advice on how to negotiate and how to accept the most favorable offer. You will “get lost” in the crowded souk in the old Medina and in the new town of Marrakech to find original Christmas presents.
This year under your Christmas tree you could put many original presents such as lamps, traditional Moroccan babouches, precious fabrics for the house, argan-oil based beauty products, colored earthenware and typical tea services. However, if you want to buy some unique more contemporary and vintage objects, you have to visit the Guéliz design district or the Sidi Ghanem industrial district enlivened by artisans, artists, creative designers, and interior designers who exhibit their original creations in their showrooms.
And then, some relaxing moments after a long shopping day! Indeed, some guests can decide to relax at the hammam inside the riad or to drink a traditional mint tea on the Dar Darma terraces while admiring the wonderful landscape ranging from the Kotoubia Mosque to the Atlas Mountains. Instead, others can decide to relax on a shady patio in the Moroccan Fireplace Lounge or in the Arch Lounge, or to read a book in the library of the riad, or to listen to music while tasting some dishes or the typical Moroccan and international cuisine.Dar Darma is a prestigious and recently refurbished palace placed in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech. The 4 luxury suites (the 2 Patio ones, the Mirrors one and the Orange one) and the Blue and the Red apartments, furnished in a superlative way and with sophisticated decorations, have lounges, and one or two bedrooms with toilettes and fireplace. The large halls of the residence create an elegant and absolutely private atmosphere thanks to the personalized and at the same time informal service offered by maids and femme du ménage and available 24 hours a day. The new dining areas and the terraces with shady lounges as well as the swimming pool complete the exclusive offer of the maison.
