Sylvia Chuku at Dar Ayniwen
If you've ever wanted to experience what living like a Moroccan royal and experience life in the luxe lane, Dar Ayniwen Hotel is the place to make it happen. Based in what I call the Beverly Hills of Marrakesh (La Palmeraie), this 5 star hotel is the perfect haven to recharge after exploring the intense and chaotic souks in the old city of Marrakech. It has it all - glorious architecture, fine dining, a spa and rooms worthy of a king, beautiful lush gardens, and exceptional customer service; at a reasonable cost.
The Hotel has only ten exclusive suites which allows for staff to make sure that each guest is catered to. When we arrived, Aziz gave us a tour of the Hotel and explained it’s history before showing us to our rooms, serving us tea and mapping out for us what we must see and do during our short stay in Marrakech.
No visit to Dar Ayniwen is complete without a visit to its wellness centre. The traditional Moroccan Hamman and signature treatments using exceptional local products like argan oil, ghassoul, and savon noir were highlights. After you indulge in one of their treatments, take a dip in their heated pool to unwind.
When you first walk in to the hotel, you’re blown away by the grand high tall ceilings, the beautiful chandlers, and the exceptional Moroccan interior decoration. Each room has such amazing character, the paintings in each room tell a story, and you actually feel a sense of being in another world, which is pretty awesome.
For dining, you have the exceptional food experience at the Hotel’s Moroccan restaurant, which also has a great choice of food for guests not particularly interested in the Moroccan cuisine.
