Riad Dar Akal is like taking a step back in time to the heart of 18th-century Morocco, where the secrets of history have been unveiled through the magic of renovation orchestrated by the visionary Christophe Siméon and executed with love by talented Moroccan artisans, keepers of ancient traditions.
As you step into this enchanting place, you enter a tale from the One Thousand and One Nights. The central courtyard, an inner sanctum that seems to have sprung from an Oriental dream, invites you on a journey through time. The meticulous details of the mosaic, the graceful arches, and the soft light filtering through the mashrabiya create an atmosphere that conjures up stories of kings and princesses.
After a day of adventures in the colorful maze of the medina or an epic exploration of the treasures of the Atlas, the arid desert, or the shores of Essaouira, Dar Akal reveals itself as an oasis of peace. Upstairs, the menzeh is your personal sanctuary, a retreat into a world of plush cushions and shimmering fabrics, offering an unforgettable view of this blend of tradition and modernity. The experience of the traditional hammam is like a spiritual journey, where fragrant vapors and enveloping warmth purify you in the manner of an ancient ritual, restoring harmony between body and soul.
The terrace is the jewel in the crown, a place where the dazzling pool invites you to cool off under the scorching sun. Here, the sweeping view of the medina extends to infinity, providing the ideal setting for moments of contemplation, meditation, or simply pure bliss.
The melodious calls of the muezzin, filled with spirituality, add an authentic touch to this extraordinary experience, reminding you that you are at the heart of Moroccan culture.
By staying at Dar Akal, you’re not just traveling through time; you become a living part of this enchanting story, where every nook and cranny breathes the extraordinary and the creative, and where the past and present come together to create an experience that transcends the boundaries of time.
