About the villa

Unique Interior design | Intimate celebration venue | Exquisite organic cooking

Part of our high-spec ABOVE collection, Dar El Sadaka is an exceptional villa designed for large groups of family and friends. Created by French visual artist Jean-François Fourtou, this unique property features fascinating artwork and nine individually-themed suites and bedrooms. Nestled in a twenty-five acre private area in the palmeraie of Marrakech, Dar El Sadaka truly offers a holiday to remember. On the ground floor, guests will discover a spacious and stylish living room, dining room, library and home cinema, as well as a hammam and spa treatment area. There are also four double-bed suites here, each with wonderfully unique features including a plunge bath in the Tortoises Suite, a dressing room in the Donkey Suite, a circular plunge bath and lounge in the Geese Suite, and a rain shower in the Bee Bedroom. Head upstairs to discover four more en suite bedrooms. The lovely Dog Suite is designed with access to both a terrace and balcony, while the Camels Suite has a plunge bath for two and an annexe with a single bed. The bright and airy Ant Junior Suite features a skylight and an annexe with a single bed, whilst the Snails Bedroom includes a fireplace and a rain shower. The spacious Giraffe Suite can be found on the second floor, complete with a super-king size bed, a workspace, sitting room with a wood stove, hanging cactus garden, rain shower and an outdoor freestanding bathtub to enjoy under the stars. 

The additional Riad Suite can be rented alongside the main villa to sleep up to four more guests. This annexe includes a double and twin bedroom, a lovely patio with a covered sitting area, and a terrace with a cactus garden. This exceptional property is just as spacious and unique outside, with a lovely large pool and lush gardens. The villa is fully-staffed for an indulgent and luxurious escape just 8.9km from the vibrant centre of Marrakech.
