Soak in the fresh sea breezes from the balcony of your room or suite and enjoy delicious and healthy Moroccan and international meals. During our excursion swim in one of the many waterfalls and natural pools in beautiful Paradise Valley and experience a Souk (traditional market) in the buzzing town of Agadir, or simply… just relax at one of the many Spa treatments on offer. This Retreat has it all! Oh and let’s not forget – make new friends from all over the world.
Stunning sunset view from our hotel – no filters needed
Taghazout is a laid-back fishing village 19km (13 miles) north of Agadir in the North West of Morocco on the Atlantic Ocean. Once famous for calamari and hippies (which of course you can still find today) it is now considered Morocco’s premier surfing, yoga and wellness destination. With 340 sunny days a year and average temperatures in March of 26 C (79 F) during the day , it is very warm in Taghazout so leave the umbrella at home and pack your bathing suit, yoga pants and flip flops. Our hotel is a short 30 min. from Agadir international airport set directly at the ocean and boasts 2 swimming pools overlooking the ocean, a gym and fitness centre, several bars and restaurants, a 18 hole golf course and more. All classes will be held at the private yoga room with mirrors and heaters! Enjoy the convenience of being right at the ocean and amazing service and more.

We will be offering daily Hot Yoga Classes at our studio right at the hotel completely equipped with mirrors and heaters.
