"Into the heart of Marrakech ! A short cool break"

I loved both places : the Riad where we sleep and Daranis yoga studio, both very centrals.

The Riad people are very nice and available.

The yoga studio is quite and beautiful, perfect for a break from the busy medina around. Everyone is nice and cool. The yoga lessons are diversified.

The food is completely vegan !

"Fijne retreat"

De riad is a very relaxed small place in the middle of the medina. People are very friendly.

The food (especially dinner) was really good! During dinner there was a nice fire in the fireplace and it looked amazing.

The yoga studio is beautiful. The lessons were nice and good to follow for people with little experience with yoga.

The yoga studio is a 10 minute walk from the riad. This I did not know before booking, so that surprised me. I understood that the studio is new, so that explained it.

The manager speaks English very well and is helpful. Unfortunately he is not in the riad all the time. The rest of the staff hardly speaks any English so than it is hard to communicate.

The rooms are nice and the rain shower is amazing (orange room).

Love the rooftop where you can relax in the shade or sun.

"Amazing yoga retreat in the heart of Marrakesh"

I came with my mother for a 5 days retreat at Riad Magellan and it was a super nice experience. Everything was well thought, the food was very tasty, the riad is well located and nicely decorated, rooms are spacious and above all Stephanie is a very good yoga teacher. My mother is a yoga teacher herself so I was a little bit anxious but we learned new stuffs every day. To conclude a very relaxing and peaceful experience in the heart of Marrakesh. We enjoyed it a lot, thank you again Philippe and Stephanie.

"Sunny New Year"

The Riad was lovely with good accommodation and very friendly staff.

Quality of yoga very good . I enjoyed spending time on the roof terrace which was well maintained and perfect to relax.

The included massage treatment was excellent and I was able to book a pedicure the following day.

It felt more like staying in a general Riad with other guests but having yoga classes.

Overall I enjoyed my time here and loved going out for walks to explore.

Phillipe gave me lots of help with places to visit and directions.

I felt safe as a sole traveller.

"Alles war super "

Ich wurde am Flughafen abgeholt und habe mich von Anfang an sicher und wohl gefühlt. Das Essen war ausserordentlich lecker und typisch marokkanisch was mir sehr gefiel.Das Personal war überaus freundlich und ich wurde sehr verwöhnt :) Yoga und alles in einem war super und ich würde es jederzeit wieder machen.

"Un havre de paix"

Un séjour inoubliable organisé par Stef et Philippe. Les cours de yoga dispensés sont de haute qualité, dans un cadre calme et d'un charme fou entouré de jasmin et de bougainvilliers. Les dîners, brunchs et collations sont excellents, avec du choix et des petites attentions. Merci à Redouane et Hind pour leur bienveillance et leur accueil. Cette retraite est à recommander sans hésiter pour déconnecter et visiter Marrakech. On y apprend beaucoup ! À très vite

"Amazing experience"

Riad Magellan was the perfect place to relax for a few days. The staff was kind and profesional and the food was excellent.

It was my first time practising yoga and Stephanie made me feel at ease. Overall, an amazing experience in a great place that I would recommend.

"Yoga retreat Marrakech "

Absolutely amazing experience.... firstly Marrakech is an incredible city, vibrant and intoxicating. Riad Magellan is both beautiful and comfortable , fantastic location and the staff are lovely. The yoga studio is amazing, great space , tranquil to the bustle of the city outside. Yoga in the sunshine with clear blue skies. The food , particularly the brunch, was absolutely brilliant. Stephanie is a master of her craft , a superb teacher . She is and her team are delightful . A brilliant retreat . Will definitely be going back

"Riad Magellan, Marrakech"

Our transfer from Marrakech Airport to Riad Magellan went smoothly; the staff at the Riad were very friendly and welcoming; on arrival, the manager Vincent gave us a good introduction of the area and lots of tips for wandering around the Medina, recommendations for places to visit or have a drink, what to expect during our stay, as well as providing us with a detailed programme for meals, yoga classes and other activities which was very helpful. We requested vegan meals for the duration of our stay, and the lovely cooks prepared some very delicious and varied meals for us. The dining table was beautifully laid with rose petals. The yoga classes took place in a yoga studio nearby rather than in the Riad, which when we made the booking we didn't realise, but actually was a much better venue than the Riad. The February weather was amazing and the yoga classes were held in the courtyard surrounded by lemon trees, bougainvillea and jasmine. Stephanie's classes were fun and varied, and were suitable for all levels whether beginners or advanced. When not out and about, we could relax in a hammock or sunbathe on the roof terrace of the Riad.

"Beautiful & peaceful yoga retreat"

The Yoga lessons were well performed always adjusted in/out upon the weather conditions - The Yoga instructor is a very genuine and has a soft voice which guides you smoothly through the asanas- drinks are served before and after yoga session - Very charming courtyard

Lovely staff and gentle normally- Nice Terrace

PAY ATTENTION - pictures posted are for most are the ones of the yoga courtyard not the Riad.

"Good yoga in Marrakech"

The Riad Magellan was a very beautiful and comfortable accommodation. The food they prepared there was every time very delicious. I also booked a massage at the riad, which was really good and I would recommend doing that. I had two different yoga teachers during the 4 days, and both were very professional and friendly. I liked the open and friendly atmosphere at the yoga studio. Everything at the yoga studio and at riad is a delight for the eye as well, the spaces are thoughtfully decorated.

"Soothing space in hectic Marakesch"

Yoga classes, yoga place and breakfasts served there were all perfect, super enjoyable and delicious. Steph - who runs yoga studio - does really live yoga and provides very professional yoga experience including meditation and different yoga styles. Tea is served before classes and perfect breakfast after the morning one.

"A lovely re-introduction to yoga practice"

Both the yoga centre and Riad accommodation were perfect. I was travelling alone and this was my first time on a yoga holiday. The balance between yoga and free time was perfect for me and the staff and yoga instructors couldn't have been more welcoming and attentive, while at the same time not being intrusive. The food was excellent.

"Marrakech yoga in October "

I loved the cosiness and authenticity of the Riyadh. Also the yoga studio where we practiced yoga, with the sounds of birds singing and the morning and evening sun. Steph programmed the practice around the ability of the participants. Great way to meet new people of different nationalities too.

"Fantastic short break :)"

The riad I stayed at (Riad Majala) was conveniently located in the centre of the medina, with the souks nearby and a short walk away from the yoga studio. The riad is peaceful and my room was comfortable. Also a special shoutout to the staff at the riad who were lovely.

We practised a variety of styles of yoga over the 3 days (vinyasa, yin, hatha). I particularly enjoyed practising outside in the courtyard (despite it being quite chilly in the morning !), and really enjoyed the vegetarian brunch and snacks before and after each class.

"Moroccan Yoga Experience"

Steph & Philippe could not have been nicer.

The Yoga studio is an Oasis of calm just off the busy street and the Riad couldn’t have been any closer.. Everyone was welcoming and I really enjoyed my stay.

"Relaxing Yoga Retreat in Lovely Riad"

I had lessons from 3 different, experienced Yoga teachers which is nice because you can experience different styles. The Yoga studio is lovely. It‘s decorated very nicely and the equipment is in good shape. I can highly recommend the brunch!:)

"Great break "

I had a really relaxing weekend in Marrakesh. Accommodation was really beautiful and the staff were really attentive and friendly. The yoga was great and challenged me beyond my normal practice. I had a great time, thanks for having me!

"Perfect vibe with excellent yoga, food and accom!"

I had a wonderful time doing the yoga retreat with Steph. She was warm, accommodating of my non-yoginess, and has a lovely energy. The yoga studio is gorgeous, as is Riad Magellan, where the food was delicious-full flavoured and plentiful. The contrast between the meditative yoga and relaxing riad and bustle of Marrakech medina worked perfectly. Highly recommended!

"A magical escape from reality ✨"

This is a really special retreat. Beautiful location, delicious vegan food, great people and wonderful yoga taught by inspiring teachers. Like a home from home, I was made to feel welcome and looked after by everyone at the riad and yoga studio. Nothing was too much for all involved. I only spent 3 days in Marrakech but felt like I'd been away for weeks. Truly perfect!!

"A perfect revitalizing weekend yoga retreat "

Excellent yoga classes with Stephanie in a serene location! The team in the Riad and Yoga Center were wonderful, helpful, warm and fun. Delicious brunch in the morning and vegetarian food for dinner. This is the ideal weekend trip to recharge and enjoy a special city and yoga with a very accomplished instructor. Revitalization and relaxation with a little shopping and a fun cooking class as well. Thanks to everyone.

"Beautiful Riad and very central"

Although we were taken to a different Riad than we booked, it was beautiful and very central. The transfer worked well and was very efficient. The staff at the Riad could not be more helpful and the food excellent. We loved our stay in Marrakesh - even though my 'phone was stolen on the last night - take care in the main square!

"Happy ! Happy ! Happy!"

Marrakech is the kind of experience that nobody should miss. It’s full of colours, aromas, flavours, and lovely people. When you begin your day with Stephanie’s yoga class, your body and mind are open to experiencing every moment to its fullest potential and making such beautiful memories. Thank you, Stephanie! I also need to say “thank you” to Philipe for organising everything so perfectly and of course to the amazing, polite people, who work in the Riad. Do yourself a favour/gift and join this yoga retreat program! It’s such a wonderful experience!

Excellent location. Brilliant map and directions and helpfulness by Azis re getting around Médina. Very good yoga sessions with Stephanie. The tour of the city which was part of the package was also excellent and the massage was good.

Everything was exceptional - the location in the Medina / the Riad / the staff ( helpful and courteous ) / lovely food / the organised trips and nearby facilities / the the 2 Yoga instructors ( Patricia and Atmed ) and the overall great value for money.

"Delightful Trip to the mountains"

The yoga instructors were very good but their names were not the ones given above. Invigorating yoga in the morning and soft peaceful yoga in the evening. We had an excellent trip to the mountains with Vincent to see a Berber family in their home. We talked and had a lovely meal and an amazing hike. The Atlas mountains were beautiful and seeing how these people live, a simple life, in harmony with nature, hearding their animals, gathering fire wood and making tools from wood, was a real treat. The bed was very comfy and everything at the Riad was very clean and tidy.

TOUT était parfait !

Stéphanie, adorable, a été immédiatement à l'écoute de ce que j'étais venue chercher avec cette retraite. Elle adapte ses cours et prend le temps d'échanger, un vrai bonheur. Le lieu est si apaisant, le Riad Magellan comme une superbe maison et toute l'équipe aux petits soins... une parenthèse de bonheur que je renouvellerai très bientot !

"Excellent programme sur mesure "

Avant de faire ma réservation, j ai eu pas mal de contacts avec Philippe - très disponible et flexible. Il m a concocté un programme personnalisé en fonction de mes vols. -

Très bonne prise en charge. Sur place on rencontre directement la personne qui est notre contact principal. Il organise tout pour vous. -

On paie une fois. Pas besoin de payer le yoga par ci, les repas par la, le riad etc... tout est centralisé. Une fois de plus, tout est organisé pour vous faciliter la vie. -

Le service est très attentionné. Tout est organisé selon vos horaires, nettoyage de chambres, on quitte la chambre en fonction de l horaire de notre vol, le massage c est quand on le sent, tout est vraiment là pour vous faciliter la vie, aucune source de stress ou d angoisse, tout roule... -

Les Riads sont bien situés, pas dans les souks mais juste à côté, dans la Médina, du coup on peut tout faire à pied et bien que le premier jour on soit très agressé par l énergie de la ville, on prend rapidement le rythme. -

Marrakech est une destination selfcare par excellence, toit terrasses très verts, hamam/spa à chaque coin de rue, il y a des coopératives d artisans ou les prix des produits sont fixés donc pas besoin de marchander...-

Le centre de yoga est vraiment une oasis de paix et de sérénité. Chaque cours est précédé d une boisson fraîche avec fruits secs et après chaque session on vous offre du thé.

"Super Retreat"

Riad Majala ist sehr schön gestaltet, ruhig gelegen und hat superfreundliche Mitarbeiter. Kurze Fusswege zum Yoga und zur Mitte der Medina. Im Riad gibt es frisches gutes Essen - der vegane Brunch im Yogastudio war exzellent. Dank des hervorragenden Wetters konnten wir meist im Innenhof des Studios Yoga machen, was zusätzlich zu Stephanies positiver aufmerksamer Energie eine zauberhafte Atmosphäre geschaffen hat. Ich habe einen wunderbaren variantenreichen Querschnitt durch die Welt des Yoga genossen und bin super entspannt und energiegeladen wieder zu Hause eingetroffen.

Philippe hat mich gleich zu Beginn gut gebrieft - er und alle anderen helfen gerne weiter. Merci et a la prochaine!

"Un stage pour se ressourcer"

Le riad était magnifique, la chambre très propre, ainsi que la salle de bain privative. Plus: pas de télévision donc un calme très agréable.

Le toit du riad était superbement aménagé, avec un coin de lecture à l'ombre très appréciable.

le riad dispose également d'un hamac dans lequel il est agréable de lire au clair de lune dans le patio.

le service était au top et très souriant! Chaque soir, le repas était servi sur une table superbement décorée.

les cours de yoga étaient parfaitement adaptés à mon niveau et les professeurs étaient bienveillants et très professionnels. Je me suis sentie accueillie et soutenue dans ma pratique.

"Encore mieux que ce que j'espérais "

Déjà, une communication parfaite les jours d'avant avec Philippe, ça nous rassure lorsque l'on ne connait pas Marrakech ! Adil est aussi joignable à tout moment pour la moindre question ou si on se perd un peu dans la ville.

Le trajet aéroport-riad est pris en charge, on n'a qu'à se laisser porter.

J'ai particulièrement apprécié le riad, en plein cœur de la Médina, où règne un calme étonnant, on n'y entend que les petits oiseaux depuis le patio et la terrasse. C'est très propre, bien décoré, pas trop chargé, et le peu de chambres proposés permet de se sentir comme à la maison. Le programme est très bien fait, les cours le matin et en fin d'après-midi, et beaucoup de temps libre entre 10h30 et 16h pour pouvoir visiter toutes les merveilles de Marrakech. Gros coup de cœur pour les cours qui ont été adaptés, je suis repartie avec plus de confiance et plein de petits tips à utiliser dans ma pratique quotidienne une fois rentrée chez moi. En dernier lieu, le personnel est incroyable...j'ai rarement vu autant de générosité et de bienveillance, tout le monde est aux petits soins, avec le sourire. Mention spéciale pour les repas qui étaient plein de saveurs (même si très copieux le soir !). Pour ceux qui veulent faire la retraite en solo comme moi mais craignent de se retrouver en tête à tête avec soi-même : on s'y sent bien, on se repose, et les repas du soir sont accompagnés d'une petite musique et d'une déco pour que vous vous sentiez bien.

J'espère bien y revenir !

"Séjour au top !"

Mon séjour en mode solo s’est extrêmement bien passé. L’équilibre entre les cours de yoga et le temps libre était parfait. Riad Magellan est super bien situé. En plein cœur de la Médina et d’un calme olympien pour se ressourcer. Les aménagements sont confortables et décorés avec goût, du patio jusqu’à la terrasse sur le toit. Cette dernière est top pour se réveiller avec le soleil. Mon manque de nature a été comblé par la journée piscine dans ce petit coin de paradis au milieu des oliviers.

Ce séjour n’aurait jamais été aussi agréable sans la gentillesse et l’hospitalité du personnel. Je pense notamment :

- Au manager Adil qui m’a très bien accueilli et qui m’a très bien communiqué les informations à connaître lorsqu’on arrive dans une ville que l’on ne connait pas.

- Le garçon de nuit Saïd qui m’a servit tous les repas du soir et les petits déjeuné avec un grande soin, une extrême gentillesse et un dévouement sans faille.

- Fatima la femme de chambre toujours souriante et à l’écoute des mes besoins.

- La cuisinière dont je ne me rappelle plus du prénom mais qui m’a régalé de la culture culinaire Marocaine. J’en salive encore…

- Philippe, le tenancier du Riad qui orchestre toute son équipe d’une main de maître.

- Et bien entendu, Stéf la prof de yoga qui enseigne cette discipline de manière passionnée, simple et claire. Elle a su adapté les exercices pour mon niveau de parfait débutant et lorsque les choses viennent du coeur cela se ressens tout de suite.

Namaste 🙏🏻

"Supers moments Yogis"

Un stage de Yoga au coeur de la Medina, dans un très beau Riad très calme, avec de merveilleux hôtes Stéphanie et Philippe, et tout le reste de l'équipe.

Du temps libre pour flâner et se perdre dans les souks de Marrakech, des moments partagés de Yoga dans une très belle énergie et la joie.

Et des cours accessible aux débutants comme aux plus expérimentés.

De plus on est amené à notre Riad depuis l'aéroport sans avoir aucun souci pour trouver le point de chute.

Juste se laisser porter par tous ses instants.

Namaste
