I recently got back from a magical birthday trip to Morocco. It was fabulous — the accommodation, traditional Moroccan cuisine, hospitality, traditional culture, my local guide to the Sahara desert, the desert camp, just everything. Plus, there are many direct flights from Europe, making it an easy destination to get to. So for my next yoga retreat Morocco is definitely on the agenda. For years now, I have been scouring the best yoga retreats and teacher trainings in the world, but this selection of yoga retreats in Morocco is definitely up there with the best retreats and yoga holidays currently on offer.
A holiday to Marrakech is like no other — it’s easy to either love or hate. I personally absolutely loved my Marrakech holidays. The pink city’s beautiful and historic architecture, the friendly and funny yet sometimes challenging locals (especially the youths, who are keen to lead you on and make you believe you’ve lost your ways), and the exotic sensory overload make it an unforgettable holiday that’s just a stones’ throw away from Europe, with many direct flights to Morocco lasting less than four hours from many European capitals. It’s also one of the most affordable holiday destinations from Europe, making it perfect for those who want to experience something exotic but don’t have much money or time to spend on holiday getaways.
Out of the many things that can make or break a holiday, your choice of accommodation is in my view one of the biggest factors. And if you find yourself in the boisterous and fun city that is Marrakech, trust me when I say you’ll want yourself a little oasis to call home at the end of a busy day out. While on my recent trip to Marrakech, I fell in love with an intimate boutique hotel called Riad Kheirredine and wanted to spill the beans with you today.
