Location

The retreat will be held at beautiful oceanfront Villa Mandala - privately hired for the occasion. It's located on the rugged coastline, just outside of Taghazout. 

Villa Mandala boast a lush garden, relaxing living areas, plunge pool, and a rooftop yoga shala. We'll enjoy beautiful sunsets every evening!

Villa Mandala offers peaceful and off the beaten path vibes, in a careing and family-like environment, dedicated to yogic practice. As such, it's been featured in The Guardian and Telegraph Travel, amongst other publications, as one of the best yoga retreat locations.

The Yoga Shala

The Yoga Shala, high on the rooftop of the villa, is surrounded by fantastic views of the beach, ocean and mountains. The shala's wooden finish throughout and surrounding glass dorrs allow it to be enjoyed both as an impressive indoor studio or an open airy space for unforgettable yoga practices.

Suggestions of things to bring

  • Suncream - it can be bought on site but it's expensive so it's better to stock up at home. 
  • Plug adaptors (two prong French style)
  • Bath towels are provided but beach towels are not, so be sure to bring one.
  • Warm clothes for the evening - due to the arid landscape, evenings can get chilly.
  • Surfboards and wetsuits if you plan to surf: The shops sell spare hardware, wax, fins, leashes, etc but surfboards and wetsuits are not as well stocked.
  • Also, don't forget: In order to enter Morocco, your passport must be valid for 6 months from the day you arrive.  Please make sure that your passport is valid for 6 months after your arrival.
