How many vacations have you gone on where you’re the one; planning the trip, booking the trip, packing the bags, keeping everyone happy once you’ve arrived and then you come home more tired than when you left?
Or let’s face it how many of us have had a break – let alone a vacation – from our immediate families over the last year.
The stress and exhaustion is real!
I’m the mom of three children and I can’t tell you how many experiences I’ve had just like that.
But, now I want to turn the tables. I want to help you have a vacation.
A real vacation
Right here in Marrakech.
I’m gathering moms (but hey, mom’s come in all varieties so if you’re a woman I’m opening this up to you!) to come to Marrakech and have the vacation of their dreams.
If you want to sleep in until 2pm you can.
If you want breakfast in bed every day, I got your back.
If you want to hit the shops of Marrakech with a personal shopper, we’ll get that set up.
Whatever would make up YOUR dream vacation is what we’re going to do!
That’s right this is a vacation just for you!
OK, you have my attention, how does it work?
- a private room in a gorgeous riad in Marrakech.
- a personalized activity plan for the week. We’ll work together before the retreat to nail down exactly what you want. OR if you’d rather I’ll surprise you based on a questionnaire and conversations we have.
- airport transfers from Marrakech airport. I can help you arrange transfers from Casablanca or elsewhere but these would not be included.
- most of your meals. I will work in as many to your plan as possible. Some meals may be shared as a group; it’s up to you to join in or not.
- surprises throughout the week!
Commonly Asked Questions
When is the retreat?
There is currently one retreat open for reservations;
March 19th – 26th 2022! (psst 2 spots left!)
However, if you’d like to come to Morocco with one or more of your personal friends and have a momcation organized for you – I’m happy to do that anytime!
What can I expect?
The idea behind these trips is to have a great time experiencing Marrakech. However, it is not a whirlwind “see everything possible in the shortest amount of time possible” type of experience. The goal is that you get a relaxing vacation! While you will have an itinerary, there will be downtime in the plan. You’re free to do what you would like during that downtime.
My goal is to schedule one activity a day (or 2 small ones), as well as 3 meals a day.
During your free time you can rest, explore, or take on an additional activity however this will need to be organized on your own.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the group retreat is $2500 per person and covers the following;
- your private room in our group riad. There are only 5 rooms available. See below on room sharing options.
- nearly all of your meals – there may be some on your own but you’ll know up front if this is the case
- activities during your stay – again most all but there may be some that are not (you’ll know in advance)
- transfers to and from the Marrakech airport
- custom planning of your time in Marrakech
- assistance if you’d like to come earlier or stay later to extend in this riad or plan forward travel.
- …and a lot of special extras that I’m keeping a secret until you arrive!
The March 2022 price is the lowest cost the retreat will be. For future retreats the price will be increasing.
What isn’t covered;
- flights to Marrakech – I will help you with questions or tips to find good fares.
- travel insurance, I highly recommend this
- any visa or travel documents you’ll need
- money for shopping or personal expenditures
- there may be some excess costs depending on your personal itinerary but this will all be clear ahead of time and you’ll be given options.
To secure your spot, you will need to submit a non-refundable deposit of $500. If there are closures or changes in the health situation where you are unable to travel due to regulations, your deposit will be moved to a later date. We can discuss payment options for the remaining balance when booking.
Room Sharing Options
This experience is designed for private rooms however if you would like to attend with a friend/sister/mom/adult daughter etc. There are 2 rooms that have the option for separate beds. If you don’t mind sharing a bed this is also possible. If you are interested in sharing, email me and I can let you know about adjusted pricing. (1 shared room is booked)
Is this only for moms?
While I want to give moms the chance to take this vacation it is open to any woman over 18 that wants to attend. I know moms come in many varieties and I believe every woman deserves the chance to be pampered.
Do you have private retreat options?
Yes. If you’ve got your own group of friends or want to come alone I do plan and create custom retreats and experiences on a limited basis. Please get in touch with me to discuss pricing and specifics for this option.
What is your payment and cancellation policy?
Payment and Cancellation Policy
I want to make this as realistic as possible so I am offering a payment plan. You will be billed monthly until your balance is paid in full. Or, you are welcome to pay the balance at any point in time. These are worked out privately and individually with each person.
If you’re ready to secure your spot please do so ASAP as there are limited places available.
Do you have any discounts available?
