Wellbeing retreat in Morocco

21. - 28.February, 2022


• Marrakech • Atlas Mountains • Atlantic Ocean • Essaouira •  Bath Ritual Hammam •Ancient beauty rituals • Desert Agafay • Moroccan Tea Ritual 

Imagine a land of rose valleys, dusky-hued sunsets, orange blossom whiffs. Exquisite smells of spices evaporating from the entrancing souks of the medina. As I step forward, in my sequined babouches, to the entrance of a hidden hammam decked with Moroccan zellige, I realize this country has the best to offer in terms of beauty and wellness. Deeply rooted in religious purification, cleanliness, and a connection to the motherland via home-grown natural resources and amazing traditions, Moroccan beauty rituals and secrets are effective habits you can take notes from for your beauty routine. From coast to desert, you'll find beauty products and treatments that were customarily used by Moroccan women before times of colonization and Western industrial development. Despite the constant evolution of the country, women are in charge of preserving traditions anchored in beauty.

This absolute comfort wellbeing retreat is curated to well balance the life we are living. The most essential beauty secrets inspired by Moroccan women will relax our body, mind and soul. Help us release the things that no longer serve us in order to make space for an abundance of joy and strength. Shed our layers, transform our body, and unearth our healthiest, most vibrant self. RELEASE MONOTONY AND FATIQUE. AWAKEN JOY BY RITUALS. CULTIVATE ENERGY.

DAY 2 ~ Discover Marrakech by bike-  an eco-friendly way. Berber markets, Koutoubia, souks

Morning breakfast and Marrakech is waiting for us. The Red city, the Daughter of the Desert, the Gate to the Mountains, the Pearl of the south and Baghdad of the west. The city of miracles. Let discover the beauty of Marrakech in an eco - friendly way. Who does not try, does not believe. After 2 hours on a bike, you will be able to orient yourselves in the old city - Medina - as a local citizen. Together with a young, native tour guide, we  will discover the mysteries of Marrakech while cycling. The tour is developed by locals, and using the bicycle  bring us beyond the tourist districts to show us the hidden jewels of Marrakech that usually remain secret to visitors.Moroccan tea and pastries included in the program.

Afternoon we will have enough time for the local markets since everything we will find here will exceed our expectations. Everything you could think of can be found here- beautiful Berber jewels, fragrant spices, hand-made clothes like from One thousand and one night stories, typical Moroccan shoes from babouche, leather hand bags, hand-made baskets, embossed oil lamps, alabaster sculptures, precious stones and crystals, traditional Berber carpets.

Love and happiness in the city of freedom

Day 3 ~ Essaouira. The city of amazing sand beaches, surfers, freedom, and independence

Sbah nour, Essaouira! We will wake up to the muezzin`s chant calling to prayer. Morning breakfast and Essaouira -  the beachy, boho sister to Marrakech with deep blue skies and fresh sea air is waiting for us. Fishing boats in the harbour, whitewashed walls and cobalt blue doors inside the medina. The city has drawn artists, poets and musicians ever since, it has galleries on every corner, live music in bars and riads, and glimpses of street art in the alleyways in between. The medina is now a Unesco World Heritage Site and the historical port the beating heart of the town, making Essaouira very famous for fresh seafood. The pace in Essaouira is blissed out, set by the inhale-exhale of the tide for leasurly meals, shopping, stopping, and smelling the rose oil. A laid-back hippie hangout to escape to again and again. Return to the hotel later in the night.

Agafay Desert

Day 4 ~ Desert, quads and camel - magic experiences

Breakfast and  direction to the stony desert Agafay with amazing micro climate at the foot of Atlas mountains. Breathtaking landscapes, different lights all day and snowy peaks in the background. The place, where night brings a million stars and gives us a chance to enjoy a stillness for the senses, for the soul, that we will never experience anywhere else.  Love for the rest of our lifes. The nomad camel trip is prepared for us and  we will feel an epic story behind it. The story about  beautiful women and strong men who learned the Truth, understood the language of the Desert and followed its signs. The story of caravans that were wandering through the desert. After the camel the adrenaline 4x4 quads experinece foloow. We will arrived to the camp, free program , swiiming and dinner. Return to the hotel.

High Atlas Mountains, an oasis of beauty and authenticity

Day 5 ~ Ourika Valley and Berber village
