Villa Diyafa – Arabic word for Hospitality is chic Boutique Hotel & Spa in the residential Ambassadors district of Rabat, Morocco, the capital city and a lovely stopping point between Marrakech and Fez. This charming hotel is a harmonious combination of Moroccan lifestyle and Swiss excellence (the managers/hosts are from Switzerland). There are just ten suites (and an incredible private villa with its own pool), all decorated sumptuously and elegantly in a mix of contemporary and Moroccan style.
The design pedigree is strong: by the Paris firm Studio MHNA (Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet) and construction by Bymaro (Bouygues). Everywhere there are treats for the eye, both big (the pool) and small (the spindles turned art). Take the time to learn about the fascinating contributions to the world of Adbu ”Ziryab” I-Hasan, a “Renaissance” man born in the year 789 and an inspiration for the hotel’s design.
The fitness room overlooks the 25 meter pool, and the spa has an abundance of services featuring Thémae and Les Bains de Marrakech products. Whether you’d like to relax on your own terrace, by the pool, in the garden, the library, the bar or the restaurant, you’ll be extremely comfortable and well-taken care of.
The restaurant is exceptional, with a menu of Moroccan and contemporary international dishes, with a few Swiss favourites too.
After one visit to this hotel, Morocco will become your favorite destination, where you will be back over and over.
