In the heart of the Ourika Valley, only an hour away from Marrakech, lies the retreat center Salama Ayurveda, so much more than just a haven of peace.

Khalid Boukhima, founder of Salama Ayurveda, became fascinated by this system of medicine and discovered many parallels with the Moroccan traditions, both in the kitchen, the hammam and the spiritual environment of nature. That is why the treatments at Salama Ayurveda are largely based on this ancient philosophy and can also be found in the kitchen.
My name is Jai Amar, which means: to overcome all challenges. I experience that this name serves me strong and I hold it dear. In 2015, I quit my job in education, which has given me the possibility to delve deeper into yoga and consciousness, where I am working on for about 11 years. I followed a Prana Flow yoga training, Kundalini training (level 1, 2 and 3), studied Karam Kriya, and did a Tantra training. I have practiced a lot of yoga styles over the years: Iyengar, Sivananda, Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Hot yoga.

Khalid welcomed me in his beautiful venue. A lovely place in the Atlas mountains. I really enjoyed the views, the hospitality and the humble way of acting of the whole crew. Everything was taken care of. The kundalini yoga classes done by Carina where very inspiring. I would recommend this place to anyone. Khalid is a warm and inspiring host who will make sure you have everything you need to get the most out of this retreat.

Wow! What a wonderful place and such lovely people. A privilege to spend time in Khalid’s realised dream. Calm, totally relaxed, nothing was a problem. Plenty of food. Great company and the best mountain treks.

"A complete gem of a retreat - can’t recommend more highly. "
Beautiful location only an hour from Marrakech in Atlas Mountains by a river, the owner is a deeply spiritual man who can’t do enough for guests. Yoga teacher Neilcha Donkers was brilliant. Excellent value for money, all-in packages spot on. Attentive staff bringing food and drinks all day. Felt amazing on return and can’t wait to go again.

"Mindful Outbreak from Everyday Life"
Start into the day with Yoga and a tasty breakfast, beautiful hikes in silence with Fatima, meditation, stunning nature and lasting experiences with the local people from the villages. Staff was very caring and friendly, excellent and healthy food, good conversations with other guests and the staff. The hotel itself is beautifully situated down the little valley down to the river, with lots of small spots, hammocks, beds to chill out, read, write or meditate. We especially enjoyed the relaxing Hamam treatment by Naima. And by the way, we always felt safe :-) We left with new energy and new ideas!

"Séjour ressourçant "
Le lieu baigne dans une bonne énergie de quiétude et de calme.le service de l'équipe était chaleureux et les repas délicieux et sains. Les journees commencent bien avec le cours de yoga et suivi de la balade en silence meditative m'a beaucoup inspiré..et les massages surtout le traitement hammam est juste une merveille. Je conseille à tous de s'offrir ce bel cadeau.
