Luxury Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat Morocco

Elemental, sensuous and still. Need a digital detox at the foot of the majestic Atlas mountains in the glorious Moroccan countryside? Without compromising on Berber style, Moorish architecture and mouth watering Moroccan food, this mindfulness retreat Morocco will explore mindfulness in stillness and movement through meditation and yoga.

The Place

Enjoy vast views of the snowy Atlas Mountains and acres of beautiful country gardens. Meditate and stretch in our panoramic glass tented space, lounge at one of the pools or enjoy a steamy hammam scrub in the spa. It’s sensory delight and ultra relaxing.

Your one week mindfulness retreat Morocco will reset your life and give you profound tools to take home with you.

Sleep & Eat

Your stylish ensuite lodge is designed with floor to ceiling windows to enjoy views of deep blue sky, the Atlas mountains and country gardens. Snuggle into high thread Egyptian cotton sheets. Luxury toiletries and fluffy bath towels await you with stylish simplicity. Enjoy sunny terraces with comfortable loungers set amongst soft grasses, lavender and ancient gurgling irrigation systems.

After our morning exercise you’ll enjoy a juice and snack. Brunches and dinners are traditional North African dishes with the best of Moroccan cuisine. They’re lovingly prepared with vegetables and fruits harvested from the gardens. Dine under olive trees on Berber carpets and cushions. You will rediscover balance and happiness through a well-nourished self with greater life-force energy.
