"Blissful "

Everything was magical!! Gorgeous people, experience and location!

The villa is lovely, clean, loaded with amenities such as sauna, jacuzzi available for use at anytime. teas, coffees, juices available all day is a nice touch too.

But this place's best asset is certainly is it's staff. Both of our hosts were sweet, attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested and willing to please :)

Both yoga instructors were good.

But Gwen certainly stood out, not only with her excellent classes which were beyond any expectation, but her lovely bubbly personality, as well as genuine interest in each of her students regarding yoga and otherwise.

"Thoroughly recommend"

Accommodation - clean, well decorated (both modern and Moroccan) good size to allow both personal space and to get to know some of the other guests. My room was small-ish but cosy. Perfect for 1. Bed - the best I had in Morocco overall - more soft and lovely duvet for the colder nights.

Food - yummy healthy and plentiful. Really thought through and beautifully served. The way everyone sits down together outside in the courtyard is very special.

Yoga - just wonderful - this is NOT a place to come and do instagram-power yoga but definitely one for meditative mindful and self-kind yoga. It has really opened up my practice. Both teachers Amy and Gwen were lovely and very accomplished teachers.

Other activites- I really enjoyed the hammam ! Very decent price too. Otherwise it's a lovely place to relax - multiple areas and the pool.

Staff - very welcoming and helpful.

Surrounding area - good for an explore and amble around, not a tourist hub. Lovely to walk along the beach. Not far from other more bustling tourist areas (Taghazout).

"Kadija and Amy"

I loved the yoga retreat.

Especially the yoga classes with Amy.

She explained everything in so many ways that there was an opportunity to follow the yoga class for everyone. The massage she gave, the Thai massage was one of the best I ever had. She is such an inspiration in so many ways. I'll also would like to give a huge compliment to Kadija, the host. She made everyone feel very welcome. Kadijha is very professional and kind. She made the villa feel like home. She was always there when we needed something. It was my birthday during the retreat and they even made me a special birthday cake so we could celebrate it all together. Thank you to the whole crew, you are doing a great job. Namaste.

"Wonderful to relax and unwind "

I was staying 8 days at Villa Surya and had a wonderful time there. The staff is so welcoming and friendly, food is excellent, great location. Didn’t do much more than practicing yoga, going for massage or hammam, walking, reading and swimming in the sea. Perfect recipe to relax and unwind. Thank you Villa Surya Team - I definitely will come back!

This is an amazing yoga retreat.

The food is delicious and healthy with so much care for dietary requirements and plenty of it.

Kadyshia was excellent at looking after us and didn't miss a thing. Very professional. Chelsea and Amy were fantastic and the yoga sessions were well suited for everyone. I would highly recommend it here and a beautiful place to stay with the beach just 5 minutes away.

"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.

"Paradise on Earth! "

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!

"Fantastic yoga break "

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. The yoga is good for most levels - there are variations for beginners and somewhat more advanced. The nearby beach is nice too. I’d definitely go back!

"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.

"A lovely retreat"

Beautiful retreat building. Very relaxed vibe. Loved the outside eating area, and the rooftop sunbathing/chill-out area. The yoga room is gorgeous, with windows all round to see the sunrise and sunset. The hosts were lovely. Breakfast was good.

Both yoga instructors were fantastic, covering different styles and abilities. Adam is the best yoga instructor I have ever had, he is an amazing teacher.

"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.

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.

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.

Great little villa (max 16 people) - app. 40 minutes from Agadir.

Great yoga-retreat with classes in the morning and evening.

Excellent food, lovely quiet spot close to the sea. Excellent, very friendly and supportive staff. Gwen is a very lovely and kind yoga teacher.

"Lovely Moroccan retreat in a sleepy village "

I was looking for a yoga retreat on the coast of Morocco, and found what I was looking for. The day begins with sunrise flow yoga before a healthy yet amazingly tasty vegetarian breakfast. You’ve a few hours to go to the beach (only a few minutes walk away), or visit the local town, or even chill in the pool and jacuzzi. There are lovely seafood restaurants nearby. Then there’s sunset yoga before an innovative and amazingly dinner. The hosts are fantastic and there are daily excursions to choose from (typically €20-€30). Great and moderately priced yoga retreat.

The staff who work here are all wonderful, I was a solo traveller and never felt like I was on my own. It has a family vibe, where everyone was so welcoming and kind . I’m a non-vegetarian, but absolutely loved the amazing food. The yoga instructors were great, and the classes were lovely 😊

"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.

"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 :)

"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.

"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!
