Nestled amongst 2 acres of greenery with stunning views of the Atlas mountains, four-bedroomed Villa Zaria is a truly impressive Moroccan gem and surrounded by lush landscaped gardens; infused with the fragrant scent of citrus fruit trees and a rose garden. Villa Zaria's pink palatial exterior provides the perfect introduction to the beauty that lies within this stunning property.

Inside the villa has been designed with great attention to detail, the spacious interiors are light and bright, comfortably accommodating eight to ten guests (depending if adults only or with kids in tow). On the ground floor, there are two stunning reception rooms, both large and airy, one with a gorgeous Moroccan interior and the other with a more European feel. Guests can choose to cook up a storm in the large fully equipped kitchen, or for those wanting to relax completely, the villa's on-site chef can do all the work for you! The spacious yet cosy lounge makes a relaxing retreat to enjoy after a busy day exploring the bustling souks of Marrakech. This floor also boasts the first of the bedrooms, a double complete with en-suite, dressing room and patio doors leading to the gardens.

The first floor is home to the remaining three bedrooms, each decorated with calming Moroccan accents and all boasting en-suite bathrooms. Two of the three bedrooms offer flexibility with the option to be set up with twin or double beds. Guests are bound to argue over the beautiful third bedroom which boasts its very own dressing room as well as a balcony with an outdoor terrace area. The real wow factor can be found on the rooftop terrace, the perfect spot to spend a relaxing evening with your loved ones stargazing in the Moroccan moonlight.

The gardens are just as magnificent, enclosed with high walls covered in bougainvillaea and jasmine, they offer guests complete privacy from neighbouring villas. The large outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by sun loungers, perfect for sunbathing and relaxing in the warm Moroccan sunshine. The shaded terraces that surround the villa provide the ideal sun relief while still allowing you to bask in the beauty of your surroundings while enjoying dinner al fresco or watching the sunset with a cocktail or two.

What you should know…

  • For an additional local charge, the on-site cook can prepare meals from a pre-prepared menu, or for a small delivery charge, the staff can supply food sourced locally at cost, which the chef can then prepare for no additional cost. Please see the extras tab for details.
  • Villa Zaria is located in a exclusive area on the outskirts of Marrakech so a car is needed to fully experience all that this wonderful part of Morocco has to offer. Cherif is available locally to drive you if you prefer not to hire a car and is always on hand to ferry you to Marrakech or other day trips such as the Atlas Mountains.

Villa Zaria allows guests to immerse yourself in the bursting lively culture of Marrakech and discover your perfect Moroccan adventure.
Marrakech, also fondly referred to as the “Red City” is located in Western Morocco, nestled against neighbouring countries of Algeria and Western Sahara. Set against the Saharan skies of Africa, this beautiful, former imperial city is just bursting at the seams with the rich culture.

Founded only 1000 years ago, Marrakech has evolved into a thriving modern market city with perfectly preserved evidence of its grand medieval heritage around every corner. In this city, there truly is something for everyone offering memorable experiences for every visitor from the hustle and bustle of the many Souks and bubbling, the infectious din of the globally famed local eateries as well as picturesque golf courses, desert getaways and of course the many museums, palaces and religious monuments.

A day in Marrakech could see you enveloped stylishly and lured by colourful homewares in the Souk Cherifa or surrounded by intense hues and textures at the Souk Sebbaghine. After this, you may find yourself in one of Marrakech’s many palaces or gardens, or even at the local Hammam eventually finishing your day with a tagine after watching the blur of people flock to the local Mosque after the bell rings out for the evening prayer.

Reviews

  • Beautiful

    Posted by AX on 31/10/2019

    We stayed at Villa Zaria for a week in October 2019 and have never stayed in such a beautiful, relaxing property. Everything about the trip was amazing, from the sheer luxury of the villa, to the wonderful girls at the house, Cherif the driver, and just the fantastic city that is Marrakech. We cannot recommend the house enough. Thank you for letting us stay and having the most fantastic holiday

  • Incredible

    Posted by Juanita on 24/09/2019

    We had an incredible, restorative vacation at Villa Zaria. It is , first of all, breathtakingly beautiful (the photos, as lovely as they are, do not do justice to the place itself.) . But it is not only stunning to look at, it is also completely comfortable, warm, and welcoming, with lots of thought put into practical concerns like lighting and mattresses and linens and pillows! Add to this a pristine pool, flowering hedges, orange, pink, and red bougainvillea blooming everywhere, pomegranate, date, and lemon trees, lots of birdsong and a burbling fountain. What you get is truly a paradise. The garden is dotted with inviting spots to sit and relax or read, small groupings of very comfortable chairs and tables so that you can follow the shade or the sun as the day goes by. Inside, as grand as the salon is, it is also a cozy place to hang out, with big soft velvety couches to curl up on and read. We got very attached to Khadija and Aicha, who are sweethearts, and spoiled us silly. Khadija's cooking was so wonderful and the terrace such a beautiful spot for dining that we quite lost interest in trying out restaurants! Basically, we barely wanted to leave the place at all. I would love to go back. The owner has put together a very informative and useful guide to the house and included lots of helpful ideas about places to go in Marrakech, which we completely followed!

  • What a holiday!

    Posted by Oliver on 26/02/2019

    A stunning villa of huge proportions set in mature, attractive grounds. Highlights: - The food, the resident chef cooks up a storm (and even went to the Carrefour to pick up the ingredients). - The service, all bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas were cleaned daily and you never noticed it getting done! - The pool, it's heated (properly) and massive. The kids spent at least a couple of hours there daily and it was February. - Day trip to the Atlas Mountains with traditional Berber lunch in a Kasbah (setup by the driver Cherif). - Half day trips in to the Medina and souks of Marrakech, followed by cocktails on the roof terrace back at the villa. - Post dinner drinks by the grand fireplace (that was started up for us every evening) Lowlights: - It rained on one of the days We were two families with kids aged 1-7 but would recommend to anyone. A truly memorable and relaxing holiday!

  • Amazing!

    Posted by Caroline on 31/12/2018

    This was the best stay ever! AMAZING is too small to describe our experience in Villa Zaria. We are so grateful. Everything was perfect. Quality all the way. We loved it and it made our stay in Marrakech incredible and magical. We sure hope we can go again.. C'était vraiment absolument parfait!

  • Back Again!

    Posted by Nathali on 18/12/2018

    This was my second time in this villa and I am starting to feel very much at home and love the staff. We had a stunning time. This time I was visiting with my family. After my first visit they couldn't believe my story about this great place. But now they agree that I haven't said a word too much! Hope to visit your home again soon! Thanks again!

  • Marrakesh Dream

    Posted by NN on 29/11/2018

    Still waking up from my Marrakesh dream! We have had a gorgeous time in Villa Zaria. It was an overwhelming experience! We can recommend this house highly. We will definitely plan another visit. Marrakesh and the house stole my heart. Working on my French, as I promised Aisha and Khadijah. Thanks again, Chris, or being a wonderful help during our stay. And next time we will also make more trip with your super friendly driver Cherif! And already looking forward to enjoy more wonderful food made by Khadijah! Need I say more?? Thanks many times!

  • Perfect Time
