Morocco’s most iconic hotel, the stunning Es Saadi Marrakech Resort has a passion for wellbeing.
Regularly hailed as Africa’s Best Wellness Spa, under the watchful gaze of the snowy summits of the Atlas, Es Saadi is a true oasis – encircled by 20 acres of tropical gardens teeming with orange and banana trees, bougainvillaea and roses, and a lagoon style swimming pool. Their commitment to wellness allows guests to recharge their body, mind and soul in the beautiful and mystical Morocco.
Set in the golden triangle in sun-dappled and colourful Marrakech, Es Saadi Marrakech Resort’s yoga will restore and revive guests through their low-intensity approach to training (LIT). Right on trend for 2019, LIT is firmly on top at the moment in the wellbeing world. Unlike HIIT (High-Intensity Training) classes are based around slow movements, with good form vital for avoiding injuries and strengthening key muscle groups. The Es Saadi Palace Spa is an ideal place to practice this in the form of yoga, with expert guidance and teaching.
The Es Saadi Palace Spa, named ‘Best Luxury Wellness Spa in Africa at the 2017 World Luxury Spa Awards’ boast not only sprawling spa facilities but 2 high-tech, bright and airy fitness studios, one for fitness, yoga and Pilates and the other for weights and cardio training. Looking out over a beautiful mountain range, built to surround a majestic, 100-year-old eucalyptus tree, guests have an array of activities and classes at their fingertips including body conditioning, aqua spinning and core training. With an emphasis on mind and body, the crown jewel in Es Saadi’s exceptional fitness facilities are the daily yoga sessions reflecting the wellness philosophy of this very special place.
In addition, the resort offers wellness-focused cuisine with healthy recipes designed to boost the immune system and build energy levels whilst using low-calorie ingredients based on locally sourced, organic foods. At their poolside “Lagon & Jardin” restaurant, a bio and healthy salad bar full of raw or cooked vegetables are available along with healthy cereals, grains and fresh herbs, grown in the hotel’s organic vegetable farm in the Ourika Valley. There is also a range of delicious juices or detox smoothies with energizing or alkalizing on offer.
Sitting perfectly alongside the yoga, spa and cuisine, this year’s most exciting new anti-ageing beauty treatment, the revolutionary Kobido facial massage and skin treatment is available at the Palace Spa. The ancient, intensive facial massage works on the inside, as well as outside– even the inside of the cheeks, are included. Results include improved skin tone and also help with internal problems, including stress, insomnia and migraines due to its relaxation properties at the nervous system’s pressure points.
