Dar Kawa is a beautiful five-star accommodation in the heart of the Marrakech medina. The old riad has been restored together with Belgian architect Quentin Wilbaux. The owner, Valerie Barkowski, looked for a way to combine the house’s seventeenth-century Saadian architecture with modern comfort and style, bringing the house firmly into the twenty-first century.

Only traditional materials were used for the restoration and the basic structure of the house was left intact. The decor is deliberately simple, yet authentic, with great attention paid to details, quality and service.

Designed with a blend of traditional Morocco and contemporary international style. Simple yet not sparing, the rooms are comfortable, large and immaculate.

Most of the house is painted in an off-white color with a shade of grey for woodwork and tadelakt.

Nice detail: most of the fabrics, linnen and curtains came from Valerie’s (the owner) own collection.
