Waves Of Tranquillity

Yoga and surfing have long been a match made in heaven with their embrace of energy and flow – yet very few retreats deliver both and top it off with spa indulgence

Just five minutes from the laid-back fishing village of Taghazout in Morocco’s Atlantic coast lies Paradis Plage Surf, Yoga & Spa Resort – a dreamy beachfront destination where relaxation and rejuvenation comes as standard. In a region blessed by year-round sunshine, Paradis Plage provides a unique experience, combining yoga, surfing and fitness with an indulgent spa offering. This rare combination of watersports and wellness is sure to help you reinvigorate and rejuvenate, and ultimately achieve total relaxation of mind, body, and spirit.

Green Key certified for six years in a row, Paradis Plage is a sustainable resort that enjoys an average of 340 days of sunshine a year. Located on a beautiful three-mile sandy beach and set among seven acres of tropical gardens, the retreat offers a truly laid-back, endless summer vibe – a place where the stresses of life simply melt away. And from September to April, the Atlantic swell that drives its world-famous waves is pumping, making it a great destination for surfers of all levels.

An organic approach to wellness

At Paradis Plage, there’s a traditional Moroccan approach to wellness, combining natural ingredients from local organic farms with gentle pampering rituals. The
best Moroccan products are used with natural active ingredients, harvested with careful respect for the environment. These ingredients go hand in hand with the spa’s care rituals for a wonderful experience – orange blossom, citrus, eucalyptus, shea butter and black soap are just some of the products used in treatments.

This is the first hotel in Morocco to deliver an equal commitment to yoga and surfing. The idea of combining these two disciplines has been carefully considered: yoga prepares and restores surfers who need all their energy and concentration when they’re out riding the waves, and the two disciplines aim to achieve the perfect balance of mind and body. Both beginners and experts will find programmes suited to their fitness and skill levels. Paradis Plage has also created a unique fitness experience, with specific coaching programmes and a fitness centre on the beach.

There are several dining options, and all fully indulge the rich flavours of local Moroccan local produce. All ingredients come from a nearby organic farm and the adjacent fishing village supplies the resort with fresh fish every morning. And be sure to fuel up for the day with the resort’s vitamin-rich breakfast, including Moroccan pancakes topped with local honey.
