Gastronomy, Culture and Design: Yoga Retreat in Morocco

shopping trip Marrakech

Marrakech is a multi sensational experience. Get ready for your senses to be slapped: the sights and sounds will dazzle, frazzle, and enchant. 

This trip has been carefully curated by an interior designer, with the aim of showing you both the authentic, historic Marrakech, as well as the contemporary, highly creative layers of the red city. 

You will be traveling off the beaten track and visiting neighbourhoods packed with creatives, art galleries, boutique bars and restaurants and curated shops that are typically not visited by tourists. Our retreat then takes us to the Agafay desert, to enjoy the calming views by the pool, after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Finally, we will enjoy some days at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. 

Our base will be a stunning designer riad in the medina of Marrakech.
