"Loved my stay"

I liked the resort, the food was really excellent, can understand why they are working on a cook book. The yoga was great, varied, and alternatives were given based on guest limitation, customer focus was great of both instructors. Resort was very comfortable and well taken care off. The set-up of having breakfast and dinner together was lovely, great conversations during meals. The hamam treatment was excellent.

"Morocco not very inviting"

The yoga instruction and the villa were really lovely, if a little small. There were only six of us at any one time. The villa sleeps 16 so could get a little crowded.

"Super relaxing retreat with great food"

Staff is super friendly and helpful, the villa is cozy and has everything you need, you really feel at home and the yoga teachers were great! I stayed for a week and would have wanted to stay longer.

"Paradise!"

I spent one week in the Villa and would come back anytime! Everything worked perfectly, from booking to pick up, to check in, check out, etc.

The yoga classes with Amy and Lottie were very inspiring and relaxing, the massage, the time in the villa, and let's not forget the food! Everything was delicious and more!

The team was always here for questions and it was nice and fun to spend time with them during meals.

I was here in July where it's apparently low season, so it was only me and another guest, so I could benefit a lot from the almost private classes :)

"Beautiful and relaxing yoga retreat. "

The food is healthy and fresh. Vegetarian/Vegan or Raw dinner. Love the dessert and mint tea after dinner.

"Unbelievably good"

I am a novice to yoga and went to Villa Surya with reasonably high expectations. The facilities are really nice but the highlight are the staff and the food. The yoga instructor is very knowledgeable and adapted to my needs, and really put me through a 'crash' course in 7 days. The house manager is very caring and looked after my every need. And the food is unbelievable good, particularly if like me you had learnt not to expect too much from a vegetarian offer. Villa Surya is also run in a professional way, and the high standards the owner clearly sets are felt everywhere.

The place was truly magical : beautiful decoration, quiet, incredible food, super yoga classes and massages. Close to the beach, authentic. It is an excellent place to restore and relax. All staff members made feel very welcome.

"A slice of paradise "

I arrived with no preconceptions, apart for a small amount of trepidation, having never taken part in yoga before. I was in need of rest, relaxation and a detox from urban life.

All these and more I found on the retreat. The retreat was a delight and it felt I was being welcomed into a family and was immediately put at ease.

The yoga instructors were mindful of my novice status and included this in the sessions but in such a way that didn’t lessen the practice for others and allowed me to feel part of the group.

The accommodation perfect enough places and spaces to settle costly and if wanted to do one’s own thing with out being in the way oaf any other, be it read a book, catch a few rays or play/practice the guitar (which I took with me).

The beautiful beach is on a few minuets walk away.

As for the food delicious and the shared meal times with our yoga instructors and hosts a delight full of conversation and laughter.

So at the bottom of it all highly recommended and I will be returning..

I could not imagine that my stay at Villa Surya would have been such an amazing experience. All the staff give you a warm welcome and follow you in your trip with discretion but attention and care. The house itself it's a lovely villa created with attention to detail, airy with a warm feeling. The food is amazing, fresh, tasty, and healthy, and they also accommodated my intollerances creating alternatives if needed. The yoga teachers are proper professionals, they help me to get back to yoga after an injury and for this I'm really thankful to both of them. The morning is a vigorous class with always some meditation at start and end, the evening is a more relaxed class that takes you into a different galaxy. It's located in a small holiday houses village and 2 minutes from a huge, lovely beach which is never too full. looking at the fishers' boats arriving at the beach with a cloud of seagulls on top of them was my favourite activity. I liked the location because is quiet and this is what you need in a yoga retreat! I would HIGHLY recommend Villa Surya to anyone looking for a yoga retreat, it's been just perfect and I'm already looking forward to go back there again! Thanks to Kadija (sorry for the spelling if wrong!), Eloise and Amy, you made my stay special :)

"Super relaxing stay"

I stayed at Villa Surya for 10 days and had a fantastic time. The yoga classes were great, especially Eloïse's very dynamic vinyasa flow classes in the morning. The food was super delicious and gluten-free options were available, which makes traveling with gluten intolerance so much easier. Also the staff was really friendly and definitely part of making my stay so special. I felt at home from the first day onwards! Thank you again for the amazing and very relaxing time!

"A relaxing week at Villa Surya"

Words do not describe what a fabulous place this is. My daughter and I were pretty stressed and in need of a relaxing week. We honestly couldn't have found a better place to go. Everything was perfect. Villa Surya is an easy drive from Agadir airport, we were picked up by the Villa's driver which made our arrival hassle-free. The villa is simply but tastefully furnished in Moroccan style with beautiful tiles throughout. There are different courtyards and roof terraces, a swimming pool, hot tub and plenty of sunbeds. The matrasses on the beds are comfortable. The staff were delightful, professional and always helpful, making us feel relaxed and truly at home. The meals were wonderful, mostly whole food plant based and so delicious that I can't imagine meat-eaters even missing meat. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere with better food - the presentation was a work of art, all on beautiful Moroccan plates. The yoga studio was a dream - light and airy with the sound of the waves from one side and birdsong from the hills behind. The 2 yoga teachers were both lovely and professional. Private sessions were also available. There was plenty of time during the day for other activities. We went to Paradise Valley, to the hammam and to the soukh in Agadir. It was also lovely walking along the beach or lying by the pool with a book. For breakfast and dinner all the guests sit round a big table together, soon getting to know each other, which was definitely an added bonus.

"Very relaxing"

The whole atmosphere of the retreat was very supportive in finding calm. I enjoyed all the staff and instructors. The yoga classes and massage were great and the food was consistently excellent. Staff Hadija and Karen were very helpful and nice to get to know. Instructors Eloise and Adam both brought their own individuality and expertise to the classes. I was glad for the variety of styles and movements provided in the classes.

Perhaps the best part was getting to know the other guests and late night jacuzzi/sauna parties :)

Thanks!

Outstanding Food with a different offering for every meal, all fresh/natural/tasty.

Amazing People: Adam our yoga teacher is a great instructor & a great person. The two hosts Emma and Dominika ( sorry if spelling is wrong) go out of there way to make it special for everyone. Every request they happily follow up always with a smile! We were so well taken care of.

Great location close to the beach, very quite and tranquil so perfect for a yoga holiday

The yoga was superb and the studio created the perfect atmosphere. The food was sublime. Literally the best vegetarian food I’ve had over a week. The variety and quality was super.

"Sjaan and Elena"

The yoga instructors (Sjaan and Elena) were true professionals. Excellent attention to detail, corrected postures, explained reasons for the postures and gave meaning to the practise. The massages were excellent. It was Sjaan and Elena who made the experience better than expected. I think that this should be acknowledged. I will follow them to Santorini!

The host (Dominika) did an amazing job of settling everyone in, making them feel welcome, was always there when you had a question and made sure everyone had what they needed.

"Great retreat but cold in January and February "

The atmosphere and food were amazing. Our hostess Dominika was very friendly and helpful, we loved her. One of our yoga teachers, Helena, was very good —the right balance between guidance and respect for your limits while stimulating you to challenge yourself. Wifi was OK. The beach is beautiful and perfect for long walks.

I absolutely loved the diversity in everything. The breakfast, dinner, yoga classes as well as the wonderful people staying there. Our hostess was absolutely wonderful and so energetic and smiley, that you could not avoid being affected. After only a few days in the Villa Surya, it felt like I had been there for a year. That's how relaxed you'll be when your day consist of nothing but yoga, good food and total relaxation on either the roof terrace, the beach or in the jacuzzi.

"If you are looking to disconnect, this is the place for you"

The food was outstanding. I had no idea what to expect going vegetarian, but it was so easy, I didn't even miss the meat. The location was very nice as well. It wasn't as busy as Taghazout, so going to the beach was nice and hearing the sounds of the waves and children playing while doing yoga was so peaceful. The staff was also wonderful and I really felt welcomed by the entire group. My goals for the trip was to interact with as many people as possible and improve my yoga practice, which I definitely was able to do, so in this sense the stay was what I was looking for.

The vegetarian food was also good, breakfast and dinner were always different.

Die Yogastunden waren sehr gut aufgebaut, abwechslungsreich und jeden Tag anders. Die beiden Lehrerinnen Lottie und Amy verkörpern in meinen Augen Yoga. Sie sind so ruhig, im Balance und herzlich, bei ihnen kann man sich nur wohl fühlen. Das gilt auch für alle anderen, die die Zeit dort unvergesslich machen. Ich habe noch hier sofort wie zuhause gefühlt. Das Essen war neben dem Yoga immer mein Tages Highlight. Super lecker!

Het eten is ook perfect. Heel gevarieerd, heel gezond en ze zorgen heel goed voor je. Al het personeel is zeer vriendelijk en ze helpen je graag.

De villa is heel groot en schoon. Elke dag maken ze je bed op en maken ze de badkamer schoon. Het is een hele fijne villa. Ik heb zeer genoten!

"A perfect place for a break "

Alles.

I just loved it. It helped that i didnot set much expectations. I was tired from work, from the dark gray sky, and i went for the blue sky, the sun, the daily yoga exercises, the all-in service. I got that all and that was indeed very comforting. But also, i soon fell in love with the simpleness of life there, in a small village where people still smile from their hearts and where i could still stroke dogs and cats living in open air. There was not much to do and that quietness brought me happiness in such a simple way. The house and its people take very good care of us guests. Not just in a professioanl way like i'm used to in hotels, but more in a kind, sweet way like with family and dear friends. The yoga teachers bring the special spirit to the house, and 3 hours of yoga with their kindness, together with other guests is uplifting. Last but not least, the staff who clean the rooms, prepare food, clean the fountain...i donot see them a lot but always enjoy their gentle kindness when i do.

Interactions with other guests was a big bonus point, though it was not my intention to seek social connections actively. Things flow naturally in the house and among people. It is a place filled with gentle happiness.

Everybody will have a unique experience with this holiday I believe. I am very grateful for mine being so perfect, and wish that you find what you are looking for.

"An oasis of calm"

I had a fantastic time at Villa Surya. I arrived feeling in desperate need of a re-set and left feeling completely renewed and energised. It's a beautiful villa with excellent facilities and friendly, welcoming staff who create a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Everything you might want has already been thought of, the yoga teaching was excellent and the food was healthy, nourishing and delicious. The location is a short walk from a huge beach which was never too busy. There's not a lot in the town, but it's easy to get to Taghazout or elsewhere if you want a change of scenery.

My husband and I spent 7 nights at Villa Surya. Villa Surya is definitely a great place: beautiful venue with well-thought through designs; amazing food and awesome yoga instructors! Our yoga instructors were Eloise (Vinyasa, Yin) and Adam (Hatha, Restorative, Nidra). they were simply amazing! We liked our hosts - Karen and Khadija. They were always there to accommodate our needs. Thanks for accommodating our vegan dietary wishes!

This place was absolutely lovely! The food was delicious, th people were friendly, the room was clean and comfy and the yoga and meditation were great.

"Best present for my soul "

Yoga: the instructors are professional, also warm hearted and caring. There are 2 classes per day, sunrise and sunset time. I feel grounded and fullfilled after yoga.

Facility: pool, sauna, jaccuzzi, roof top terrace for sunbathing. I can enjoy doing nothing just to relax inside the Villa. The villa itself make me feel like home. Room is new and clean. Bed is comfortable. Sleep really well every night.

Food: Delicious and authentic vegetarian meals. Every day menu is different. Plus fresh fruits, tea and drinks are available all day long. I feel my guts become very healthy.

Extra points: There is a daily schedule everyone has to follow, I feel great to wake up early for yoga and end the day with yoga. Me, yoga instructors and other guests eat and do yoga together everyday. So at the end, we become like a big family.

"Tensions fall away"

Villa Surya was genuinely transformative. The villa is situated at the back of Imi Ouaddar, a small 2nd world fishing village with an expansive sandy beach. We had a physically challenging yang-style Ashtanga- and power-based class in the morning, and a yin-style class in the evening using techniques drawn from Yin, Nidra and restorative yoga. I gained a lot of excellent technical information from the former, and entered into deep and often strange states of consciousness in the latter, particularly in the restorative yoga sessions in which we would literally hang out for long periods in a Shala bathed in the bronze light of the glorious sunsets that seemed to occur every evening. The food was astonishing: seated in the beautiful courtyard, we had, for breakfast alone, freshly-made smoothies and juices, porridge made with coconut milk and dried fruits, fresh fruit, vast salads, bean patties, a tray of root vegetables cooked in turmeric and honey, crushed nuts in Argan oil ... I also went mountain trekking and surfing, but the greatest discovery of all was SUP yoga. Padding far out from shore on a SUP (Stand Up Paddle) board, I experienced moments of clarity in which all unnecessary and habitual tensions fell away. In many ways, that sums up the whole trip. Thanks to all the staff at Villa Surya, especially Adam and Amy the two experienced English yoga instructors, the cook, and to Mama Dominica, our Hungarian host who combines efficiency with exuberance.

"A beautiful place with great potential but poorly managed"

The highlight of my trip were the yoga sessions with Adam. Each class was rich and varied in style and intensity. I also liked that Adam recited us mindful words at the end of each session. I felt good during each class with no exception, even when being weak during sickness.

The beach house is quite nice and well-maintained, with beautiful large terrace, located on the water front and in the cleaner side of the village.

Dinners were varied and hearty, some really delicious (Tajine, barbecue) but lunch was only self-packed sandwiches from breakfast.

Euro is widely accepted by locals at 1 to 10. Payment at the property is possible by credit card, also by cash but with exact amount.

I was very excited before going on this trip and should say that overall I had many enjoyable moments and met great people, however, remained very disappointed with the staff and management’s attitude towards a very serious issue of people getting ill in mass. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend this retreat to friends. Those who decide to take it should consider paying for surf classes on the spot as illness is highly probable while nobody is flexible to replace the prepaid classes with other activities.

Surfing - the instructors were just great. Ibrahim is a natural teacher - patient, calm, kind, and determined for you to succeed.

"Un superbe séjour relaxant"

Un cadre magnifique propice à la relaxation. La villa est splendide avec toutes les installations à dispositions (piscine, transats, jacuzzi, sauna...), la décoration soignée et épurée. Les repas sont absolument délicieux (tout est fait maison) et le personnel adorable. Je n'y ai passé que 4 jours et m'y suis pourtant sentie immédiatement comme chez moi.

"Prachtig huis in een typisch Marokkaanse omgeving... "

Het huis voelde al snel als een thuis. Meerdere zithoeken in zon en schaduw. Typische Marokkaanse interieur. Het eten zag er prachtig uit en was heerlijk. De vinyasa en yin yoga waren super. Slaapkamer schoon en gezellig. Iedereen was zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Ich hatte eine super Woche bei Dfrost Almugar in Taghazout! Die Leute dort sind supernett und hilfsbereit, dass Essen lecker, die Unterkunft sehr schön gelegen und sauber und die Ausflugsangebote abwechslungsreich. Als absoluter Surfanfänger habe ich mich auch zwischen den Fortgeschrittenen sehr wohl gefühlt und das Yoga Angebot ist so groß, dass für jeden etwas dabei ist.

"Wunderschön, lecker und sauber"

Das komplette Team ist sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Das Dfrost House ist sehr gut organisiert, Termine finden pünktlich und zuverlässig statt. Das Haus ist sehr sauber, die gemeinschaftlichen Sanitäranlagen werden mehrmals am Tag geputzt und das Essen ist sehr lecker.

Yoga bei Sabina war wirklich schön! Ich kann sie bei den Yoga Lehrern in der Auswahl leider nicht direkt finden und somit nicht bewerten, aber deswegen möchte ich es auf jeden Fall hier tun. Sabina hat sich den Gegebenheiten immer super angepasst und beide Klassen, sowohl morgens als auch abends sehr angenehm gestaltet.

Die Surflehrer sind sehr sympathisch und haben ihren Job wirklich gut gemacht und darüber hinaus eine tolle Atmosphäre geschaffen.

Auch die Möglichkeit StandUp Paddling auszuprobieren war super!

Im Fall von Krankheit gibts das passende Mittel um schnell wieder auf die Beine zu kommen (war leider nötig).

Rundum ein gelungener Aufenthalt!

Wir kommen gern wieder!

"Great break in Villa Surya! (Béatrice)"

I loved everything! Great yoga classes with excellent teachers Amy and Adam, funny and peaceful SUP yoga class, relaxing thaï massage, good mood and kindness of our hostesses, nice bedroom with perfect bed and pillow, closeness of the beach and, last but not least, delicious food!

"Un pur moment de ressource"

Tout est très bien organisé pour permettre de passer un moment (même un peu court) de vrai détente dans un lieu vraiment très agréable.

"When could I return?!"

This was my first yoga holiday experience and it was fantastic! I really want to return to this place. Very friendly hosts, a nice group of mixed people (ages, gender, nationality), good yoga lessons for beginners and advanced yogi, very delicious and fresh foods and a comfort accommodation to stay. I really recommend this place!

"An amazing time!!"

The time at Dfrost Yoga and Surf was more than expected. My sister and me spent 8 amazing days in Dfrost Yoga and Surf and we didn't t wanted to leave.

We were surrounded by lovely people!

The Yoga class with Lisa was excellent and we were very happy that we came at that time when she was there. Lisa is a wonderful person, speechless...

The surf instructors are very kind, responsible, motivating and good surf teachers. We felt in good hands. Thank you for motivating us and taking my fear ;-) We had a very good time with you guys. You all do a good job.

Many thanks to everybody working in the house!!

Hope to see you soon!

Kelsey Lange

from Canada,

My stay at Dfrost Yoga retreat was amazing, 10 out of 10. The host Lora was super friendly and helpful with any questions I had. The yoga instructor Sjaan was really great, I loved her classes and it was a great balance between energizing in the morning and then calm yin/restorative in the evening and meditation. I always felt so relaxed going to bed and throughout the week. The newer yoga instructor Kristian (spl?) was also really great and I enjoyed her classes. The food was also really delicious and healthy and fresh. Overall, I got exactly what I wanted out of my stay here, it was relaxing, rejuvenating and I felt really physically strong and good leaving. The only constructive comment I would make is that because this yoga retreat is connected to a surf house, there is encouragement to go and do some of those sports which is really great but, it also means that the spiritual nature of the yoga classes does not exactly continue between classes. I was able to just take my own space and go to the beach or meditate on the rooftop but, just so people are aware that is something you will need to take on your own and won't be provided by the yoga house. All of that being said, if I did not live so far away (in Canada), I would definitely be returning here often! thank you very much!

I stayed at the Yoga Villa Surya, which was a perfect base to go out surfing during the day and to do restorative yoga at the end of the day.Lovely staff, attentive, clean and great food. Highly recommendable!

Astrid

from United Kingdom,

I had an amazing stay at Villa Surya. The villa was beautiful with so many little spots to hang out at, the yoga teachers were great and the food was such a treat. I really liked having a set schedule every day, while also being able to do extra activities (and to have these conveniently arranged by the staff). I would recommend anyone to do day trips to Marrakech and Essaouira, but Imi Ouaddar was really nice, too.

from Sweden,

We had an amazing time at Villa Surya. It was both relaxing and energizing. everyone made us feel so welcome and taken care of. The location, the food, the yoga everything was great. I would really recommend going! You will have a fantastic experience!

Gabrielle

from BC Canada,

What an amazing stay in Morocco, I would recommend Villa Surya to anyone! The yoga was great, the food was amazing, the staff were incredibly helpful with whatever came up. If I wanted to do a day trip or activity, the host would arrange it all with taxis or whatever was needed, and alternatively hanging around the villa or at the beach all day was so relaxing as well. It's in a great small-town location and the beach is wide, long and really nice to walk on. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Morocco :)

Charlotte

from Denmark,

I had a very pleasant stay at Dfrost Almugar Surf House & Yoga Morocco. Every thing was what I hoped for: the villa is a beautiful and calm place and the surroundings were nice. I felt that everybody did take good care of me - the food was gorgeous - every day they served a fresh and tasty brunch and diner everything vegetarian and so well cooked. Loved it all. The yoga teachers were very competent and helpful towards me, who just recently started to practice and with their help an guidance, I really think that I learned new "tricks" and encouragement to continue my practice. As a single traveler I also enjoyed the good company from the other guests. And my only regret is that I didn't stay longer!

Isabel

from Switzerland,

I really enjoyed my stayed at Villa Surya. Well located close to the beach, all the amenities one need for a relaxing and comfortable stay, the staff was really nice, the house always clean and the food awesome. The yoga and meditation classes helped me a lot, I managed to disconnect and feel present and focus and they have also a good offer of other activities. It was actually a great experience that I will certainly repeat.

Aimee F.

from New Zealand,

Dfrost Almugar Surf House & Yoga was the best yoga retreat ever! Highlight was the amazing fresh healthy vegetarian food! And so much variety! Daily cleaning of rooms and common areas. Great jacuzzi and sauna. Yoga space was so zen! I wanted to surf a couple of the days and this was easy to organize and an efficient pickup and drop off. Made the trip so relaxing.

from United Kingdom,

The main Dfrost surf and yoga centre is great! It's right above a beach, has an excellent indoor and outdoor communal area with Jacuzzi and barbecue, and an awesome roof terrace for yoga - perfect spot overlooking both sunrise and sunset, with sound of waves breaking in the background! Visiting yoga teacher (Kat) was fantastic, she was teaching a relaxing version of Hatha yoga, which was perfect after a long day of surfing. Morning class was a bit too early for our taste (7-8am) but the afternoon class was spot on, just before dinner (17:30-18:30). Surf instructors were different every day, some better than others, but all were reasonably ok. The vibe in the house was good, most guests were friendly and easy to chat to. The only thing we didn't like was accommodation - we stayed in Mo's studio, which is around 10 min walk up the hill from the main Dfrost centre. The studio itself was ok, it has a nice roof terrace, but we didn't like tracking up and down hill all the time. We highly recommend Dfrost, but only if you get accommodation either in the main centre or immediately next to it.

Warm welcome at the house, great mix of people. Surf instruction truly excellent.

from Germany,

Der Retreat war unglaublich toll! Ein sehr schönes Haus in einem idyllischen Fischerort, sehr aufmerksame und herzliche MitarbeiterInnen, mega leckeres vegetarisch-veganes Essen mit viel Gemüse und Rohkostdesserts, super Yogastunden und auch sonst ein reichhaltiges Angebot an Massagen, Kosmetikbehandlungen und Ausflügen.

Ich bin alleine hingereist und habe viele liebe Mädels aus der ganzen Welt kennen gelernt. Wäre es nicht so kostspielig für mich als Studentin würde ich ganz bald wieder kommen. Sehr entspannende, bereichernde Zeit. Danke!

Dit was mijn tweede keer bij Dfrost. De reden van mijn terugkomst is vanwege de ontzettend goede surf instructors. Het verblijf is niet luxe of bijzonder, maar waar voor je geld. Nog een pluspunt is dat het huis meerdere keren per dag wordt schoongemaakt, je bed wordt ook elke dag voor je opgemaakt. En de sfeer is er altijd goed. De eigenaren hebben zich niet aan me voorgesteld, ze zijn wel een aantal keer tijdens mijn aanwezigheid in het huis geweest. Maar de hostess zijn over het algemeen erg vriendelijk en houden zich strikt aan de regels.
