The house is a large private villa in the hills in a lovely setting of green lush bushes and trees, flowers everywhere and a beautiful view over the ocean. The house is large and cool with a very relaxed athmosphere. Is...

Karma Surf&Yoga Retreat is a peaceful, relaxing and lovely place. The staff is really friendly and helpful: you can ask what ever you need to and they do everything to help you. They all speak good English. There is a large swimming pool area with real SAUNA too - that was nice surprise as I am Finnish ;). Rooms are...

Since my last-minute, spur of the moment stay at Karma Surf Retreat in October 2016, I knew I´d come back! Karma turned out to be the perfect place to get your normal life out of your mind and body. The first coffee in the morning on the terrace or at one of the many places just around the house, the...

I enjoyed having time with one of my best friends. Having time for me and my yoga and surf practice, away of touristy places and with great teachers, a amazing cuisine in a beautiful home. It is worth to have also dinner there from time to time. :)

I stayed at the Karma Surf Retreat in October 2016 and would recommend it, especially if you want to learn or practice German. I'm being somewhat sarcastic :) The resort hosted 15-16 people when I was there, and all but one other spoke German. Great effort was made to include us English-speakers (Both guests & staff were all so nice!);...

I was not entirely sure what to expect form this holiday and had been (with other companies) to similar breaks in Morocco - however I would strongly recommend this company and this break, if you are looking for a relaxing time in a lovely location.
