This is a relaxed yoga retreat program where you can spend your days doing yoga, meditation, chilling by the pool on a big Balinese bed and taking a sunset walk with a meditation on the top of the hill with panoramic views of the Island.

Can Lluc is one of those special and breathtakingly beautiful places, abundant with greenery, that has you feeling relaxed and radiating peacefulness within 24 hours.

A 200 years old rustic ranch that has been in the family for at least three generations was transformed into an agroturismo by owners and husband and wife team Tina and Lucas, along with a local architect who spent three years creating their luxurious boutique spa hotel with 20 rooms.

The main building was built by Lucas’s grandfather and his family home for generations. The attention to detail within the renovations retains a strong sense of the traditional through Ibicenco architecture, rustic stone walls, wooden ceilings and beautifully restored décor. At sunset you can enjoy a walk in nature to enjoy the fabulous panoramic views over San Antonio.

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. Marrakech is the perfect, exotic, beautiful place to explore and adventure, shop until you drop and relax with your best gals.

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.
