5th - 12th Oct 2024
& MEDITATION RETREAT
The first part of our Moroccan retreat is set in view of the magical Atlas mountains.
The retreat is 30 km south of Marrakesh in the beautiful Ourika Valley.
A luxurious private residence nestled within a 20 acre estate with olive grove, walled gardens
and spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains. Our retreat home is beyond 5 star, yet homely.
It is designed by international architect Imaad Rahmouni in a style
which combines exceptional space with the simplicity of Berber architecture. The grounds and gardens are
designed by renowned French landscape designers Eric Ossart and Arnaud Maurières
who blend subtle plantations of fragrant flowers and sculptural cacti with local crops.
The interiors are a combination of vintage and contemporary with Moroccan flare.
Marrakech within the Old City Walls
The second part of our Moroccan adventure sees us staying in the centre of Marrakech.
For those wishing to discover the vibrancy of old Marrakech walls, transfers will be arranged to take you to the
traditional and authentic area of Sidi ben Sliman, inside the Medina walls.
Our venue in Marrakesh is a high-end, hipster hideaway that oozes ‘cool’ in the most genuine of ways and is considered
one of the top hotel riads in central Marrakech. Known for attentive staff, personalised service and opulent surroundings,
our riad is made with love and embodies the spirit of traditional Moroccan architecture, mosaic and fabrics
with cutting-edge, contemporary design, for a truly beautiful and authentic Moroccan experience.
While in Marrakesh you can soak up the story-telling street performers of the famous Jemaa El Fna square,
browse the brightly coloured markets near the riad, or relax in one of the city's beautiful spas and rooftops.
Our time spent in magnificent Morocco will be an exploration into what it means to live
with our senses wide open. As we invite ourselves to step onto the yoga mat, and into the wonder and beauty
of embodying a beginners mind in our exotic surroundings.
