after the souks, escape to...
Your room features the craftsmanship of generations of Fassi artisans with a few modern touches discreetly added. All 5 suites feature 100% cotton bedding and feather duvets (hypo-allergenic available upon request), air conditioning (except Roumana suite), personal safe, and a private bath - complete with thick fluffy towels and cotton bathrobes, hairdryer, and luxurious organic toiletries. You will not find TVs or telephones, but fear not - the Wifi will keep you connected to the outside world.
Even better, why not disconnect for a while, and drink it all in...accompanied by a glass of Moroccan wine, perhaps.
Jannah Suite - 135 euro
The Jannah Suite, meaning Garden of Eden, is the newest suite at Dar Roumana, the first in an ongoing revamp project to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.
Located on the first floor it has floor to ceiling windows with scalloped plaster arches that look over the courtyard and two armchairs that offer a quiet repose for intimate drinks while getting ready for dinner, catching up on email, or finally getting into that book you've been reading for the last two years.
This suite has a mezzanine bathroom accessed by a hand-crafted cedar wood staircase that leads you to sexy twin showers lined with a contemporary take on classical Fassi zellije. If you have the kids / family / friends in tow, this suite easily connects to the Tamarind or Yasmina Suites. But you can, of course, lock the door.
Yasmina Suite - 145 euro
The most sumptuous and spacious of our suites, the Yasmina suite is a favorite for honeymoons - and even a few proposals. Located on the first floor, carved mosaic tiles adorn the floors and walls, sweeping up to an intricately carved plaster ceiling - ideal for gazing at from your four-poster bed.The bathroom features a corner bathtub and shower, as well as plenty of natural light.
When you awake, throw open the shutters of the 6 enormous windows and let the dappled morning light stream in through the stained glass panes, and then step onto your private balcony to listen to the medina stirring. Two large traditional Moroccan sofas provide ample lounging space for reading or afternoon naps.
Tamarind suite - 125 eur0
Tamarinds, or "India dates" as the name means in Arabic, are a delicacy rarely found in Moroccan markets. Similarly, the Tamarind Suite is rare in that it wraps around two sides of the first floor. Six 2-meter high windows surrounded by cedar shutters and jewel-tone stained glass panels create a light and breezy feel, while the deep blue silks and earthy-toned furnishings offer a hint of drama and plushness.
The bath features an oversized tub surrounded by blue mosaic tiles, ideal for a indulgent candlelit soak after dinner.
Roumana Suite - 115 euro
Steeped in rich pomegranate reds, the Roumana suite exudes romantic plushness - not surprising when every member of the original family spent their wedding night in this room. The bathroom features an immense claw foot tub, perfect for a soak "a deux", as well as a separate shower.
The only suite located on the ground floor, the Roumana opens on to the spacious courtyard, and is ideal for guests with mobility concerns. Its location and 5-meter high cedar ceilings keep the room refreshingly cool during the summer. We provide fans in place of AC during warmer periods.
Argana Suite - 85 euro
Privacy abounds in the Argana as it is the only room that does not overlook the interior courtyard. Instead, wake up to the a view over the medina from one of the few external windows in the dar. Bathed in cool colours and minimalist decor, this suite is a favorite with young couples and single travelers as it feels like a private studio (and indeed it was for a time: the owner, Jen, lived in this room during the restoration and opening of Dar Roumana).
Across from the bedroom is a dressing area and bathroom with a zellige shower. Small windows line the wall, providing air and limiting direct sunlight into what was formerly the olive and argan oil storage room for the family who built Dar Roumana. This area does have a low ceiling compared to other suites in the dar (2m), so guests over 6ft should take care.
Please note: the Argana is located on the second floor via a private stairway and therefore is not suitable for guests with mobility issues.
