Full Description

Douar Noujoum is an ecological wellness centre situated 14km from the coastal Moroccan city of Essaouira (just a 20 mins drive).
The place is just 4 km from the beach and is surrounded by sand dunes and forest of Thujas. A star shaped natural swimming pool dominates the space. The accommodation spreads around it in traditional stone constructions. The Dars are traditionally built houses in stone and cedar wood. Each Dar has two bedrooms with twin or double bed and a shared bathroom and toilet. Each Dar has their own private terrace for sunbathing or meditating and offers a unique tranquil and
private space.

A combination of spectacular beaches, great sea and the almost constant tropical trade winds has changed Essaouira from a hardworking port into
one of the world’s greatest sites for windsurfing, kiteboardingand other exhilarating watersports. Mighty walls surround this old Moroccan trade centre. Rusting cannons between the ramparts still point out to sea. The narrow winding streets are filled with the sound of Gnawa singing, women in white haiks weave their way through the alleys of the old
medina, and palm trees cast their shadows across the walls of white-washed houses. Essaouira has all the essence and charm of Morocco mixed with the tranquillity of a small seaside town.

As well as the Yoga practice you will also have plenty of time to relax and enjoy, socialize with others or spend time with yourself.
We will organize two outings into Essaouira, one evening for a traditional Moroccan meal and one lunchtime to eat just caught fresh fish and seafood at the port’s street food market. Of course you are free to go into town or explore any other parts at any time. Taxis and private transfers can easily be arranged and are quite cheap in Morocco.

There are plenty of things to do in Essaouira: shopping for ceramics, spices or clothes in the streets of the Medina, going for a walk along the dunes, lazing at the beach, relaxing by the pool or quad biking amongst others. Surf lessons can also be arranged at a local surf school (at an extra cost).
