Ezzahra, Marrakech, Morocco
Ezzahra is a large luxurious private villa in the Palmeraie, just 15 minutes from Marrakech’s Medina and souks and 12 km from Marrakech Menara Airport. Built as a family retreat, the house is set in extensive gardens with shaded terraces, a large swimming pool, gym, spa with two in-house therapists, a paddle tennis court, two screening rooms and a games room with a full size pool table.
The house has seven luxurious en-suite double bedrooms, each with a dressing room and private terrace – some with open fireplaces. The owner’s pavilion, separate from the main house, sleeps a further two people and features a private sunbathing terrace with a plunge pool, sitting room and kitchen. A separate apartment 50 metres from the main house is ideal for teenagers or accompanying staff.
Ezzahra (including the owner’s pavilion) sleeps up to 16 with a staff of 17, so it is ideal for families or groups of friends holidaying together or as a stylish and relaxing venue to celebrate a special milestone. Ezzahra also hosts important meetings in a secure and private environment. A separate games room houses a professional size pool table and many board games. There are two screening rooms and a wide collection of up to date DVDs to suit every taste.
Ezzahra’s private spa has its own hammam and two private treatment rooms, where guests can choose from a range of beauty treatments, using Kaeline and Dermologica products. Massages, manicures, pedicures and wet shaving for men are all available in the spa, by the pool or on the villa’s terraces. Ezzahra has two full time therapists, who can offer a range of beauty and body treatments to guests on demand. Stays at the house include all treatments ranging from massages to pedicures and hairstyling.
There is a fully equipped gym with Technogym equipment. Personal trainers are available by arrangement. What makes Ezzahra different is that the price includes all facilities offered at the house, all meals, non-alcoholic drinks, laundry and all hammam, massage and beauty treatments.
