Come Join our 10th Tigmi Trip this October
If you’ve never been to Morocco, you’re in for a treat. If you’ve never been to Tigmi, you’ll be even more impressed with the beautiful location, setting and serenity that envelopes you from the moment you step into the compound.
2017 Dates: 28 October – 4 November
A trip to Tigmi is an unforgettable experience wrapped in the other worldly Marrakech. Here’s your chance to join us for a week of sun, relaxation, running, yoga, trips to the mountains, an onsite spa where you can test a local hammam, fantastic healthy food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and did I mention the heated pool and stunning sunsets?
Plan ahead now to join us for some winter sun in February or an easing into winter week in October (our 10th trip!). The weather is always a treat – warm days (up to 30s!) with lots of sun and cooler evenings – particularly in February when the in-room fireplaces are made much use of.
Weather permitting we practice on the open air yoga terrace, overlooking the Atlas mountains. If it’s too chilly (particularly in the evenings) then we have a purpose built yoga room with a partially glass roof, serene white walls and a welcoming fireplace.
Or sunny mornings on the yoga terrace with a view of the Atlas Mountains….
If you’re in need of a top up of your Vitamin D then plan now to join us for an unforgettable week.
Only 30 minutes from the heart of Marrakech, Hotel Tigmi was named a Top 12 Ethical Hideaway by Harper’s Bazaar, which described it as a ‘blissed-out haven that mixes style with substance’. The boutique hotel has become so synonymous with relaxation that clients now say they’re going to get Tigmified.
With views of an ancient Kasbah and the snow-capped mountains, you’ll feel miles away from it all while only 15 miles from Marrakech. Meandering courtyards reveal a variety of terraces, gardens of banana palms and bougainvillea and swimming pools (heated, if necessary!).
While there you can spend your days relaxing by the pool, being pampered in the hotel’s very own spa and hammam, exploring the local surrounds including the local village, ancient Kasbah or venturing towards the Atlas mountains. (The Tigmi team can arrange half or full day trips to the mountains.)
…Or mix things up with a visit to the busy UNESCO world heritage site of the Marrakech medina. Tigmi offers a complimentary free shuttle (three times each day) to the city daily where you can experience the magic of the medina. (The last shuttle bus drops you back off at Tigmi in time for our evening meal)

Weather and Travel
October can average between 25 and 30 during the day but evenings can do down to mid teens – a perfect excuse to cosy up by the fire.

Those of you who want to join us for our early morning runs will also want to pack warmer running gear. Dinners in the dining room are still a casual affair, so no need for anything too formal but most choose to change out of yoga gear into other casual wear. Bring sunscreen!
