Villas Fawakay is a peaceful haven of tranquility and a truly wonderful place to unwind. There are three villas, each with their own private terraces, plunge pools, dining and lounging areas. The general feel is very “rustic chic” – Doris the donkey wanders the lush gardens, as do a host of other pets, including dogs and peacocks.
There is a fantastic pool, which is ideal for the brilliant sunshine that Marrakech has in abundance – as well as a lively, friendly bar where you can choose to mingle with the owners and other guests if you wish.
The villas are all beautifully designed in a modern Moroccan style, with a tremendous amount of thought also given to maximising comfort by the very hands-on owners, who manage the hotel and who help to arrange anything that their guests could need.
Fifteen minutes from the centre of Marrakech, this is a good choice for people wanting a relaxing break with occasional visits into town. You might feel like you don’t want to leave, as you can have cookery lessons, beauty treatments and fit in some shopping (incidentally with all items the same price as in the souks) all in the comfort of your own private villa.
A fabulous choice for groups or those with families, as there is a children’s pool as well as lots of other things to entertain little ones!
