About this trip

Join Toni for a little winter getaway to Marrakech. 


Expect daily yoga practices (a mix of katonah yoga, joyful flows and nourishing restorative classes), local vegetarian meals and explore the medina with all the monuments, the souk with endless shopping inspiration, great restaurants or spend half a day outside Marrakech and enjoy a trip to the Atlas Mountains or Agafay stone desert.

The Riad is located in the middle of the medina. They created an authentic and unique place full of local history, tradition, art, and food, bringing Moroccan culture to the surface and open the doors to this fascinating world. A home away from home.


The house has a patio with a pool and a separate lounge on the first floor. The rooms are located on the ground- and first floor. The terrace has a covered space for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a cosy Berber tent lounge. 

BE Marrakech also has it's own hammam and massage room, that will be available to book throughout our stay.

We will do our best to cater for your preferred room, however if this room is already taken we will contact you directly to organize the most suitable room for you. If you have booked a shared room and are traveling solo and there is no other traveler to room you with, then you will be required to pay for a single room. Rooms will be allocated on a first paid basis.

Travel documents and immunisations

It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain all required travel documents including valid passports and visas. In most cases you must have at least 6 months validity on your passport in order to travel. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct immunisations for your travel. If in doubt, please contact your nearest travel clinic for the latest requirements.

Traveling arrangements

It is your responsibility to make your own travel arrangements to and from the retreat including flights and airport transfers. With your permission we can connect you with other guests joining your retreat, to see if you can arrange shared flights and/or travel options. In this case you take full responsibility for your own travel plans. If you choose to share cars or transport with other guests or retreat hosts and/or teachers, resort/hotel staff members whilst on the trip then please note that you do this at your own risk. We are not responsible for any risk, injury or death occurred through shared cars, transport or any travel.

Insurance

If you are traveling from the USA, we highly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel insurance (this is different from airline cancellation insurance). Taking part in any of the activities that will take place during the retreat, including yoga, tours, and sporting activities, carries a high risk. When you participate in the retreat or in any of the activities that take place during the retreat, you agree that you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible, and do not have any liability for, any risk, damage, injuries, illnesses or death that occurs during or as a consequence of your participation in the retreat, whether by reason of negligence or otherwise. You must insure yourself against any such risk, damage, injury, illness or death. We advise all attendees to purchase travel and medical insurance on booking to cover any unfortunate events while traveling and on retreat. Your insurance is NOT included in the retreat price.

Health disclaimer

You must provide us with full details upon booking of any existing medical conditions, disability or injury that may affect your retreat with us (including, in particular, any accommodation requirements) at the time of your booking. If, in our reasonable opinion, the retreat is not suitable for your medical condition or disability then we have the right to refuse to accept the booking.

Should you not give us full details of your medical condition or disability upon booking we reserve the right to cancel the booking at any time, including at the beginning of or during the retreat, if in our reasonable opinion the retreat arrangements are not suitable for you.

Allergies

An environment free of allergens, including but not limited to food allergens, CANNOT be guaranteed on our retreats. It cannot be guaranteed that any particular food product is free of all traces of any particular allergen, that consumption of a food product will not result in some form of allergic reaction, or that the participant will not come into contact with any allergens while in attendance on one of our retreats.

Special requests

Special requests must be submitted in the booking form. We cannot guarantee that the request will be met, although we will try our utmost to accommodate them. Any failure to meet your requests will not be a breach of contract on the part of our team. Confirmation that a request has been made will be included on your booking invoice or upon the acknowledgment of booking. We are not able to accept bookings which are conditional upon a special request being met and these will be treated as a standard booking with request.

Responsibility and behavior

As part of your booking with us, you accept liability for any loss or damage caused by you or any member of your party during the course of your retreat. Payment for any loss or damage must be made to our supplier/venue or us at the time that it occurs or as soon as is reasonably practicable thereafter. If the cost of the loss or damage is not known at the time, we will reasonably estimate it and if this reasonable estimate exceeds the amount paid, you must pay the difference once known. If less, the difference will be refunded to you. You will also be responsible for and agree to indemnify us in respect of any claim subsequently made against us and all costs incurred by us (including our own and any other party’s full legal costs) arising from your actions. You are responsible for your own behavior and for any other members of your party. We maintain the right to refuse service and the right to or refuse to you and/or any other member of your party by terminating your retreat arrangements should your behavior be deemed to be inappropriate, discriminatory, disruptive, upsetting or dangerous to yourself or anyone else, or if you or any member of your party are likely to cause damage to the property. In these circumstances, we will not be liable to pay any refund, compensation or expenses incurred by you if we have to terminate your booking arrangements due to unacceptable behavior. In such a situation we will have no further responsibility for you or any other member in your party (including any return travel arrangements).
