Riad Les Deux Mondes is a family-run eco mindful guest house that welcomes you in a peaceful and rejuvenating setting 10 kilometers away from Essaouira. Your friendly hosts, Anne-Gaëlle (naturopath) and Olivier (agronomist and environmental consultant), have settled there after years of living in other parts of Africa. They will have the pleasure to make you discover the organic vegetable garden and introduce you to the animals (chickens, cats, and turtles).

There is a large sunny pool with deckchairs and hammocks to relax during the day, the wellness area boasts a wonderful infra-red sauna, a beautiful traditional Moroccan hammam, and two comfortable massage rooms. There are plenty of cozy spots where you can relax during the day either in the garden or lounge area of the main house.

The riad has spacious and bright rooms all equipped with a private bathroom, shower, and toilet. Two superior rooms have a private terrace with views of the garden or pool. The water in the bathrooms is heated with a solar system and there is a double filtration of drinking water. The cleaning products that are used are homemade and eco-friendly from natural raw materials and the waste is composted and recycled as much as possible.

There is a beautiful and spacious eco-yoga Shala, built with natural materials with temperature adjusting, wooden floors and gorgeous views on the permaculture garden.



You will start the day with a morning “feel good” yoga session, which will also be infused with other practices such as dance and qi gong. Those sessions aim to boost your energy level and give you access to a vibrant embodiment experience through movement. You’ll enjoy delicious healthy meals that support your vitality and well-being at the hand-picked venue of choice Riad Les Deux Mondes.

During the day, you can explore the town and beach or soak in the peace and tranquility of the garden and pool at the villa.
