Surrounded by ancient olive trees and extensive gardens, Villa Alkhozama (meaning lavender in Arabic) is a two-bedroomed villa, which combines contemporary design with local materials, strong Moroccan colours and traditional craftsmanship. The house was designed by one of Morocco’s most renowned architects, Karim el Achak, from Agence Architecture Associati of Marrakech, with bespoke furniture and lighting by Colefax and Fowler’s design director, Philip Hooper.
The villa descends from ground level to a lower level opening onto a twelve metre pool, with a large daybed and sun loungers. There is a shaded dining area, a living room with an open fire and a dining room with a domed ceiling with a vintage Moroccan light found in the souks.
Villa Alkhozama, which cannot be seen from Ezzahra, can be rented independently or together with the other two villas.
There are two double bedrooms – each with an ensuite bathroom underfloor heating and air conditioning.
The master bedroom opens onto a terrace with 12 metre pool and a luxurious day bed. The second bedroom has a covered terrace with a seating area and a writing desk.
Our cook prepares a daily changing menu featuring Moroccan and European dishes made with locally grown seasonal produce and comforting classics for younger guests. You will be able to choose your dishes from a wide choice of menus.
All our villas come with a hammam, treatment rooms and unlimited spa treatments as well as many other touches including a large berber tent at Villa Ezzahra and Villa Azzaytouna ideal for evening drinks and a gym and cinema rooms at Ezzahra.
Alkhozama has a 350m running, jogging or walking track with various exercise stations available as you go around (1 km is about 1500 steps).
The house comes fully staffed and is managed by the Ezzahra estate manager, Maria, who will assist you with all your requirements.
