Surf Maroc Yoga Retreats
Pristine villa offering all-inclusive surf and yoga retreats in a beach front location with swimming pool and an ocean view yoga studio
Villa Mandala, the perfect yoga and surf escape, is located on Banana beach. Mandala is the best accommodation we offer and is our dedicated Yoga Centre where we run Yoga Surf Retreats year round*. With large terraces and a pool looking over Banana Point, Villa Mandala incorporates privacy and soulful individuality.
The area immediately surrounding Villa Mandala is not a tropical paradise but the sea views are beautiful and great beaches are in walking distance. It is a distinctly North African beachside location that is susceptible to the constant natural and man made changes that rapidly occur in the developing world. Its part of the experience and its what makes Villa Mandala a true gem hidden off the beaten track and Banana Village's best kept secret!

By night, lit with candles and hung with ornate lanterns the sitting area is a sleek and luxurious backdrop to mellow and majestic evenings accompanied by exquisite food and great company.
The Yoga Shala, poised high on the roof top of the villa, is immersed in breathtaking views. Banana Beach, Banana Point and the infinite Atlantic Ocean lie directly in front.
