Soul Seed Travel Guide: Recommended Retreats in Morocco

Experience the magic of Morocco, explore the medina’s and spa’s of Marrakesh, visit the breathtaking Atlas mountains or the picturesque seaside town of Essaouira. Go camel trekking across the desert, spend a night under the stars and indulge in delicious Moroccan cuisine..that is when you’re not practicing yoga, pilates or meditating on one of these recommended retreats.

EAT.PRAY.MOVE Marrakech FORM+FOCUS Retreat, 18th – 24th February 

EAT.PRAY.MOVE Marrakech 

We are so excited about this special collaboration and enhancement to our Marrakech retreat. EAT.PRAY.MOVE will feature Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with travel-journal creation classes throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the ‘calm in the chaos’ of the sensory-overload that is Morocco – and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing – both yoga and art working together to find FOCUS in the many layers of smells, sites, and sounds that abound in exotic Marrakech. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.

This retreat is part of our GIVE BACK initiative, where EPM will donate at least 10% of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held. Our partner in Marrakech is Project Sora who works with underprivileged communities and young women to empower with design, clean-up projects, and creative ventures.

Dar Jaguar bespoke Wellbeing and Culture Retreats, Marrakech open all year round

Dar Jaguar is perfectly located in the best part of the medina in central Marrakech. It offers the opportunity to go away at any time you wish and to create your very own bespoke “Escape” whether that be alone, with a friend or with a group of ten or more taking the entire riad exclusively.

The UK based owner, Lucia Silver, will work with you to design a programme of wellbeing and cultural activities that will nurture your body and romance your soul. In Lucia’s words, this is a “Gorgeous marriage of the radical self love we owe to our hard working-selves and the style, fun and cultural sophistication of Sex and the City”. All you need to do is tell us what you need and want and leave us to do the rest. All you need to do is get on a plane here and enjoy it.

As a London couture designer, Lucia’s Dar Jaguar riad hotel is the exotic fruit of my passion for romantic escape and inspiring adventure, a place to escape the hubbub of workaday life and to quieten the constant chatter inside your head and enjoy silence disturbed only by a burbling fountain, blissful birdsong and a perfumed breeze. A place of peace and serenity where you can find yourself again. So, allow me to invite you here to lose your mind and come to your senses.

DETAILS & PRICING

Whilst you are in Marrakech, one of the things you have to experience is a hammam. To find out exactly what this entails, read this personal account from blogger Jessica, of My Feet Will Lead me, to discover exactly what to expect!.

3 night Sex and the City Escape in Marrakech, open all year at Dar Jaguar

dar jaguar

This is the ultimate 3 night Sex and the City Escape. It offers the opportunity to go away at any time you wish and to create your very own bespoke escape with a group of ten (more can be arranged) taking the entire riad exclusively. The UK based owner, Lucia Silver, will work with you to design a program of perfectly balanced relaxing, adventurous and cultural activities that will nurture your body and romance your soul.

In Lucia’s words, this is a “Gorgeous marriage of the radical self love we owe to our hard working-selves and the style, fun and cultural sophistication of Sex and the City”. All you need to do is tell us what you need and want and leave us to do the rest. Your only job is to get on a plane here and enjoy it. In Lucia’s work as a red carpet and wedding dress designer in London, Brides tell her all the time that they can’t find anywhere original or distinctive to celebrate their hen with their best girlfriends. Especially if they don’t want it to involve stretch white limos, pink bunny ears and sweaty nightclubs.

Well that’s no longer true! “Sex and the City” inspired and reminded us of the fun and importance of precious girlfriend time and Lucia wanted to create something really special at Dar to allow for just this. The perfect, exotic, beautiful place to explore and adventure, shop until you drop and relax with your best gals.

Whether you are wanting to be seduced by the souks, enthralled by exotic new experiences like camel riding, belly dancing and excursions to the desert, or you just want to be spoiled and indulged with a sensual massage by our candlelit rose filled fountain, we will create the experience just for you. For these reasons and more, Dar Jaguar has established a sparkling reputation for designing and hosting some of the most spectacular hen party packages in Marrakech.
