Once the imperial city to Morocco, situated in the West, Marrakesh is a major economic player and a centre-point uniting medieval roots with laidback bliss and an unhurried pace, the ideal destination for a wellness retreat. Famed for vibrant colours splashed along street buildings and reflected in plates of food, Marrakesh emits an energy so alluring it infects the people at the very first sight and breath.

Gardens filled with exotic shrubs and blooms plus cloudless blue skies and sunshine. Learn to unwind and let go of all your troubles and worries upon arrival in Marrakesh. Spreading an air of undeniable calm, Marrakesh will enforce a complete digital detox. With a full panorama of unsullied beauty and abundant wildlife, swapping digital screens for a real vision of nature is a great idea. Close by, iconic mosques and palaces stand tall and confident while the medina, a walled medieval city with tangled, maze-like alleyways is now known as a mecca for local crafts, jewellery and textiles. There is never a dull day in Marrakesh, only unruffled tranquillity and a feast for the curious minds and adventure spirits.
Despite a retreat and a holiday sharing a similar definition, the approaches and results of each greatly vary. By swapping out our usual environments for a new and undiscovered destination, folded in the embrace of nature, a retreat does not only provide guests with the opportunity to disconnect and relax. Through outdoor activities, a wide-ranging variety of classes, workshops and body and facial treatments, guests will be able to recharge and rejuvenate the body and mind.
Constantly gripped by the throes of haste, it becomes an easy thing to forget about our goals, dreams and purpose. This is defined as losing a sense of self. By attending a retreat in an exquisitely unique destination such as Marrakesh, enjoy an eye-opening experience and allow the mind to drift with the local dynamic and rhythms to slow down your pace, calm the mind and soothe the soul. Enjoy a multifaceted programme, designed to help you begin choreographing a life of satisfaction and fulfilment, covering the bases of your wellbeing to help you restore a sense of self and to become emotionally and mentally resilient.
Improve and reinforce your physical and mental health through the practice of yoga on a yoga retreat. Available in a range of styles and levels and held in some luxurious destinations around the world, a yoga retreat is open to all levels from those looking to try yoga for the first time to the veterans looking to extend their practice. Bringing together the component of relaxing the mind and exercising the body, feel healthier, lighter and invigorated after a yoga retreat.
Cultivate mindfulness and become realigned with your true identity, purpose, goals and dreams on a meditation retreat. Open the heart and clear the mind to develop compassion and learn to become aware to the importance of self-love and self-care. Although most would suggest meditation as solitary practices that can take place almost anywhere, receiving guidance and insights into meditation is necessary to unearth the virtues for physical and emotional health.
Get the heart racing and the arms and legs moving on a walking and activity retreat. With a wide variety of physical activities, workshops and classes available enjoy the great outdoors and let the natural healing powers wash away any unpleasantly negative and toxic emotions and thoughts. Having our hands wrapped around a touchscreen or a keyboard and mouse continuously can feel suffocating. Be exposed to wistfully beautiful landscapes. Go hug a tree or rent a bike to go on a biking trail and reconnect with nature, a natural anecdote to modern society.
Choosing to begin your wellness journey with Balance Holidays will enable a moment of quiet and stillness in some of the world’s little-visited and exclusive destinations. Further to this, guests will be shown the importance of being equipped with knowledge and information about taking care of their physical and emotional health. In a generation with little to no time to focus on breath-work or be fully present in the moment, it becomes important to understand the necessity of manually implementing downtime for yourself.
Through each retreat, our aim is to arm guests with sustainable tools and knowledge to facilitate and maintain balance at home and at work. At Balance Holidays, we believe that wellness extends beyond parameters of each retreat. Rather, it is a multifaceted and well-rounded approach that focuses on the body, mind and spirit together. This is why our definition of a balanced lifestyle refers to self-care, mindfulness and healthy living.
Each programme is designed to provide life-enhancing results for each guest. However, we understand each body and mind is different and therefore has different needs. Hence, we visit each destination personally and each programme is hand-selected and carefully designed by us to ensure you achieve your wellness objectives and expectations surpassed. Additionally, to provide a truly inescapable experience, we integrate local cultures and traditions into each programme. From garden-grown herbs for Ayurveda body and facial treatments to discovering a new slice of Morocco, cultivate balance and refresh the mind with new perspectives and outlooks, restoring motivation to live each day fulfilled, satisfied and balanced.
Drawing from first-handed experience of the confusion existing in the wellbeing retreats market, Balance Holidays seeks out to help guests who are looking to begin their wellness journey or continue their upkeep of balance in confidence, with a peace of mind. We are readily available to speak to and offer advice and reassurance throughout the booking process to provide a seamless and hassle-free experience. Acknowledging the need to take a short-break from gauging content online and feeling demotivated is the first step to restoring balance. The next step is choosing the correct programme and destination to facilitate the wellbeing goals. This is why our personalised service is in place to help guests find and choose an appropriate programme, marking the beginning of a well and happy journey of balance.
