Enjoy a week of relaxation in classic Moroccan Berber style accommodation with the beating heart of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains a stone's throw away.
This Easter, come and stay with us for a week on our springtime yoga holiday Marrakech, Morocco. With temperatures reaching 25 degrees and clear sunny days it is a perfect tonic from the colder darker days of winter in the Northern hemisphere.
Only a 20-minute drive into the heart of the old city of Marrakech and the souks, included in the price is a tour of this area to get your bearings and then spend a day exploring and shopping here and drinking mint tea or relaxing at our authentically designed and furnished Berber retreat hotel.
A spacious hotel with two yoga spaces, two pools, plenty of outdoor lounging space and Moroccan courtyards, with bougainvillaea, romantically spilling over from private balconies, you can spend the day here unwinding from your busy day to day life, surrounded by views of the Atlas mountains.
There are plenty of other activities to do if you wish to be more active and adventurous; take a day trip to the stunning blue and white city of Essouira – where Jimi Hendrix wrote the song purple haze, or take a day trip to the Atlas Mountains and visit Berber villages or experience the desert.
Whatever it is you decide to do, there are 3 hours of yoga a day in the outdoor yoga Shala to re-energise and revitalise throughout the week.
Enjoy three meals a day and fabulous massage and other treatments in the spa area, with Hammam and hot tub. Float back to your room or relax by the pool or in one of the many courtyards. It is your holiday so be as active or relaxed as you like.

Men & Women
Morocco is situated in the north of Africa bordering the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast as well as the countries of Tunisia and Algeria and the Sahara desert to the south. It has so much to offer to explore and is so rich in history, culture, art and religion.
We have two locations in Morocco for your adventurous spirit; one is the High Atlas Mountains for the hiker in you and the other is the more cultural and relaxing (well staying at the venue is relaxing!) area of Marrakech. Read more below to find out more about both destinations on their own destination pages
If you exhaust the city’s fountains, palaces, and mosques, head south to the Atlas Mountains. Here, snow-capped summits perch high above wild river bases, protecting Marrakech from the searing climatic extremities of the Sahara Desert.
In the Atlas Mountains you will head to our venue, the Kasbah. It is based in the Toubkal National Park and set dramatically below the towering flanks of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa standing at 4167 metres. Imlil, and its surrounding valleys, is a world apart from the bustle of the city and a place of peace and seclusion. The Kasbah is situated at 1820m and is just 60 km from Marrakech.
On the 8th April, you can arrive at your leisure. The transfer is only 25 minutes from Marrakech airport. After you’ve checked in relax by the pool and we will have a yoga class for those who have arrived at 5-6 pm and then dinner will be from 7 pm.
Transfers will be organised for you by the venue and added to your bill at the end of your stay.
Departure day on the 15th of April is again flexible. Check-out is 2 pm but if your flight is later, relax at the pool and shower in the guest departure room prior to your flight.
