From our arrival on Hydra, to the Phaedra Hotel, exhausted and totally turned around, when we were gently shown to our rooms (it was my home away from home) and sent off to dinner at Poppie’s, then gentle yoga in the morning (more vigorous everyday!) and meditation, then everyday a special experience! Horses, ancient sites by boat, beaches with umbrellas and drinks and light bites, art openings, and shop, shop, shop! And did I mention Hilda? She knows all, sees all and helps Rebecca arrange all...Rebecca can sense what you need almost before you need it, it’s amazing. Enjoy the next trip. Dixie T Myers

In one word, AMAZING!!! I wish we could have slowed down time as every experience was better than the last. I feel so blessed to have been invited to participate and will treasure the memories.
I came to Morocco not knowing what to expect. I had never been across the Atlantic Ocean and I had never surfed before. Now that I am back home, I cannot wait to return to Morocco. Those looking for an adventurous vacation, look no further. You can take surfing lessons and/or you can meditate and practice and yoga with the Rebeccas. Those looking for a restorative vacation, look no further. You can go to the beach, get a massage, ride camels or horses, eat good food. Surf Maroc, Villa Mandala, and the Rebeccas have you covered. This was one of the most engaging and fulfilling vacations I have had. Thank you to: the Rebeccas for organizing the trip and teaching yoga; Bahsin and Yussuf for the Surf lessons; Chouaib for the amazing food; and Emma, Ayoob, and the rest of the Villa Mandala staff for taking care of all our other needs. Those who can should consider the pre-Surf and Yoga Trip. This is a great way to see the amazing people, culture, and geography of Morocco.
