You will be staying at Essaouira Lodge. The venue offers a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere with plenty of Moroccan charm. Essaouira Lodge is located in the much warmer and milder climate of the countryside, in the middle of the forest, and with all the comfort and tranquillity perfect for your yoga retreat. There, you will find the balance between being close to nature and the sea.

The free shuttle service at the venue takes you to the beach and the Medina in just 15 minutes. The property pool is heated so you can swim even during winter. There is a spa and hammam, restaurant, beautiful gardens, plenty of places to hang out during the day with a book, and an absolutely stunning yoga shala with wooden floor, overlooking the gardens for the practice.
