Pools and Gardens
With two pools, a number of plunges, and a wealth of beautiful aromas, the stunning gardens are yours to enjoy.During your stay, the grounds of the centre are yours to explore and savour. Mazy paths lined with banana palms and citrus trees lead you around the beautiful gardens. Roses, hibiscus and bougainvillea bring a delicate aroma and add bursts of colour to the garden walls. Bask in the sun, or seek out the shade. You’ll find both in abundance.The terrace is showered in sunlight and offers stunning views of the Atlas Mountains. It’s also home to the the first of the two pools – perfect for cooling off with a quick dip, or stretching your legs with a relaxing swim.In a shady, secluded garden, you’ll find the second of our pools. Solar heated all year to 26 degrees and surrounded by comfortable divans, it makes for an irresistible sanctuary from the Moroccan heat.
A visit to the hammam (public bathhouse) is a Moroccan tradition, and you may notice signs for the hammams within the medina of Marrakech. Our hammam pool and steam bath is for guests only, giving you the space and privacy in which to relax.The resident beauty therapist will also be on hand to provide a range of exfoliation and massage treatments using authentic Moroccan skincare products that contain indigenous herbs, fruits and oils.
Morocco’s cultural influences make for extremely diverse cuisine. Breakfast will be served right after yoga, lunch is a salad buffet by the pool and 3-course dinner will be offered at a cosy restaurant at our centre
The vibrant city of Marrakech is only a 30-minute drive from our centre and we have a complimentary shuttle available twice a day
The centre is 30-minute drive from the airport. We can help organise your transport to and from the airport. It would be best to arrive on the 20th of February during the day or in the evening and leave after lunch on the 27th (unless you prefer to give yourself more time to explore Morocco on your own before or after the retreat).
You will discover that during the month of February the daytime the temperature is quite warm and it’s cold at night (so during the day we will be enjoying the sunshine and in the evenings – the fireplace).
