“The Medina”, is the heart of Marrakech, its old city center founded in the 11th century. It is renowned for its treasure trove of mosques and palaces. Wander among a maze of narrow streets and magical souks. You will love its herbal markets and antique shops, and be captivated by its snake charmers, folk dancers and street food vendors.
Nestled inside the vibrant Medina, and hidden behind tall walls, you will discover our home, an oasis of peaceful living, “Riad Sakaan.” It is an authentic Moorish home with its pool garden courtyard, purifying Hamam and stunning rooftop. This stylish oasis is filled with hidden treasures and enchanted fragrances.
Here between light and shadows life is sweet and there is a sense of absolute serenity.
Your last night will take place under the stars of the breathtaking Agafay Desert, at “La Pause” desert camp with a magical and unforgettable Arabian night.

“The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness.”
Start your mornings with a Vinyasa Yoga, meditation and chanting led by Shayne Cohen.
Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while synchronizing their breath to their movements. Shayne’s classes integrate a dynamic flow with the application of precise alignment, meditation, visualization, intention and chanting to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.
Each class is designed to systematically stimulate the organs, glands, nervous system and move freshly oxygenated blood to the entire body as you release tension and simultaneously develop faith and intuition.
Adriana Vergara will be here to assist the newer yoga students reaching their own individual level.
Let your mind wander and your eyes be mesmerized by the beauty and ancient culture of Marrakech. Every day we will discover its magic.
