An oasis of peaceful tranquility in the countryside yet only 15 minutes from the centre of Marrakech, with stunning views of the Atlas Mountains. A perfect combination of private villa and boutique hotel.
Full of winding pathways and hidden doors and lush green spaces, the rose gardens and olive trees set in 1.5h of verdant greenery offer total privacy. Curl up and read in a Berber tent or lounge by the pool in the sun. 
Our villas offer a blend of contemporary styling with Moroccan tradition which is carried through into all our events.

Venue Features
The Scene:

Fawakay Villas is a rustic chic boutique hotel, painstakingly created in over three-and-a-half acres of Moroccan countryside by Francis and Dawn Boys-Stones.

Each of the three well-appointed villas are equipped with everything you need for a perfect unwind from the hectic mayhem that is Marrakech. With a 15m pool and a separate 5m children’s pool set around the shaded bar area, one need never leave! 

Wallow in your own private plunge pool, collapse on one of your private terraces or enjoy a snooze in the privacy of a traditional Berber tent at the end of your private garden.

The numerous animals including peacocks and our little donkey, roaming the gardens lend an air of relaxed serenity to our little oasis.

Our venue is a true oasis in a desert! Set in 1.5h of lush olives and rose gardens with specatacular views of the Atlas Mountains, yet outside the gates is traditional Moroccan countryside which offers some amazing and scenic photo opportunities. The vibe is definitely chilled out and relaxing!
