The Retreater

Helios Morocco & Sahara Retreat

About The Retreat

Situated between the foothills of the breathtaking Atlas Mountains, not far from the hustling and busting vibes of Marrakech. We’ll spend each of this five day wellness retreat enjoying fresh air, world class fitness and yoga classes, exquisite meals and soul-awakening adventures. Sensational Morocco: an alluring blend of striking architecture and interior gardens, stunning desert landscapes, stimulating souks, magnificent mosques, delicious tagines and invigorating workouts by the pool. Remarkable for its rouge architecture, home to charming riads and rugged mountain villages, our Morocco retreat brings you a taste for the senses as we adventure into the deep red and orange hues of dunes in the Sahara. Gaze over the dunes on the crystal clear night skies and let your mind wander off, lost away stargazing the constellations in the Arabian desert night. Whether you are interested in exploring your Yoga further, hunt for fragrant spices in the souk, bargaining for gorgeous multi-coloured textiles and glistening lanterns, or sitting cross-legged over a steaming hot tagine, this magical retreat has it all! Ideal for: Digital detox, cultural exploration & Hiking Fly to: Marrakech Airport (RAK) Vibes: If you’re looking for an authentic Moroccan experience, we’re talking mouthwatering tagines and epic hikes, you’ve come to the right place!

If you’re into your fitness, active holidays and a willingness to meet new people then this retreat is definitely for you! I did not expect to have so much fun and create so many amazing memories in such a short space of time. The people I met were from all over the world but very like minded and I now have the luxury of calling them friends.
