Explore the ancient lands, where thousands have walked before, to discover the vast beauty of Morocco’s rich culture and landscapes, while taking time to meaningfully reconnect with your true self.
Note: This wellness travel experience is currently on hold due to Covid. We look forward to setting new dates and providing registration information once circumstances allow for it.
We look to authentically and respectfully unlock the hidden treasures of new places by:
- Exploring the rich culture and connecting with locals to learn their stories.
- Unearthing and exploring the land through unique experiences that go beyond the average tour.
- Travelling sustainably as much as possible and giving back to the people by learning about the region’s needs and where we can support them to meaningfully live well in their own right.
All while slowing down from the hustle of everyday life through integrated time to connect and bring us back to a place of balance. Each day of our wellness travel trips includes holistic wellness experiences that feed our soul through:
- Yoga practices designed to cultivate, clear and restore our energy.
- Meditation classes to cultivate focus, balance and healing.
- Wellness workshops to deepen our awareness, break old patterns and develop new ways to live more meaningfully.
- Nourishing foods to rejuvenate the mind and body.
Peacock Pavilions is a celebrated small luxury resort located in an olive grove on the outskirts of Marrakech, Morocco. The resort was built and decorated by its owners, Chris and Maryam — an American architect and an American author and stylist. Both pavilions feature great rooms with soaring ceilings, domed roofs, fireplaces and as multiple private terraces.
Single and double occupancy rooms are available; beds can be separated into twin beds or maintained as one queen sized bed. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and heating, as well as other main amenities.
The beautiful property also includes a large swimming pool, a small outdoor gym, a boules (lawn bowling) court and a 1/2 km running path. A particularly magical feature is the outdoor cinema for viewing a selection of films under a starry canopy. Peacock Pavilions can accommodate both vegetarians and vegans, and serves delicious rustic meals.
