Pilates & Wellbeing Retreat: MON OCT 15th – SAT 20th 2018

Join us for a luxurious two centre retreat firstly in the Atlas Mountains at our elegant spa hotel, followed by a decadent Riad in the heart of Marrakech

LOCATIONS

Domaine de la Roseraie – meaning “Rose Garden” – will host us for three nights in the peaceful surroundings of the Atlas Mountains. In the heart of the Berber country among the quiet foothills of the High Atlas the air is pure and invigorating. Concealed secretly in the middle of Toubkal National Park, close to Ouirgane Lake, Domaine de la Roseraie & Spa features typically Moroccan architecture.

An incredible spa awaits you, three swimming pools, a hot tub and a lush garden arranged around a fountain are just some of the on-site facilities. This location is the perfect retreat for lovers of nature and those who want to escape the hustle and bustle. We then take a private transfer to Marrakech to our private Riad for two nights.

Magical Marrakech is fast becoming one of the world’s most fashionable destinations. We welcome you to the Riad Star a vibrant but intimate hotel in the heart of the Red City. A one-time residence of Jazz Age superstar and civil rights pioneer, Josephine Baker, Riad Star is a celebration of the human spirit.

This luxurious hotel blends traditional Moroccan style with Art Deco and modern elements. Original Cedar woodwork, exquisite hand carved plaster and a host of other features have all been retained while discretely incorporating air conditioning, Wifi, power showers and other creature comforts. Each of the rooms really has its own personality with several even containing their own private meditation pods.
