overview

Location: Marrakesh, Morocco

Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, including outdoor areas, a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, and covered yoga platform, but the retreat also includes some amazing day trips to surrounding sites. A guided day in Marrakech will lead guests through an introduction to souks and visits to sites such as Ben Youssef Medrasa.

A full day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains with a base at the Kasbah Tamadot Hotel. A traditional mule trek to the nearby village of Asni will be followed by time at the beautiful grounds of this 5-star location overlooking the vistas with a tasting menu lunch. The final full day entails a trip to the famous Bains de Marrakech, a luxurious spa facility, where guests can be pampered to their heart’s content with a full program of various treatments. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation.

accommodations

This fantastic yoga retreat will take place at the fabulous Peacock Pavilions boutique hotel located in Marrakech on 8.5 acres of land, including 5 acres of olive grove. This stylish and eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler.

Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where guests will stay during the retreat feature gorgeous fireplaces and a glamorous bathroom in each room. Each bedroom also has its own private terrace - “just the right place to enjoy a minty tea or a zingy cocktail”!

The entire pavilion property has been decorated with care and loaded with art, special fabrics, and exotic good stuff from all around the world. A swanky place to relax, the salon/great room has stunning lacy plasterwork that took weeks to complete. There are also seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cozy meals. A spiral staircase leads to a catwalk high in the air, where you can sit on vintage embroideries and admire the view. Not only is this place gorgeous, but it’s also eco-friendly. Observing “green” building and gardening techniques, you’ll feel good about the organic bounty served to your plate, and the hot water you use heated by the solar panels. Spend some free time at the lovely, inviting pool and patio, join us for a henna and cocktail party in the painted tent, or perhaps an outdoor cinema night on the lawn.

food and dining

Healthy vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including daily breakfast, and selected lunches and dinners, either hosted at Peacock Pavilions or out and about in town. The cuisine is simple, delicious and Moroccan, using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic gardens or local markets. Selection may include tempting dishes and libations like stuffed dates, almond couscous, vegetable terrine, avocado dip, leek tarts, mint tea, pomegranate martini, rose water, and more. Selection is seasonal, and you can guarantee to love and appreciate each bite. We’ll also be enjoying a chef tasting lunch and wine pairing during one of the day trips, as well as a henna party during lunch, and an evening tea + snack session in the olive grove one night in the outdoor cinema.
