NEW: Check out Dar 91 in the Desert!

Relax in style and privacy at Dar 91 Essaouira

Welcome to Dar 91, our trio of private, serviced apartments in the medina (walled old town) of Essaouira, on Morocco’s wild and beautiful Atlantic coast.

If you’re looking for a comfortable, stylish and affordable place to stay, slightly off the beaten track, you’ve come to the right place.

We’re situated in Chbanat, a quiet, authentic and traditional artisan neighbourhood close to Bab Doukkala and Bab Marrakech. Tucked away from the tourist trail, the house is just five minutes from the souks and 10-15 minutes’ stroll from the beach, harbour, bars and restaurants.

Our three apartments occupy what was originally an 18th century police watchtower. Each is self-contained and can be rented all year round, for short breaks, holidays or longer stays. Wahed and Zhuzh have their own roof terraces with stunning views across the medina rooftops.

Watch our video tour.

We’ve welcomed guests from all over the world since opening in 2006, and take great care to ensure your stay is special. We send all guests our insider guide to Essaouira, our helpful staff are on hand to make sure you have a great stay and we can help you organise taxis, tours, car hire and local activities.

Please check out the rest of the website for photos and more details, and get in touch to enquire and/or make a booking.

From the moment we stepped off the bus and took the short walk through the great walls into the alley way, we were taken back in time. The pace of life is slow, and the people are warm and friendly. Dar 91 is in the perfect location, close to everything, yet tucked away enough so you’re able to appreciate the sounds and silences of the Essaouira way of life.
