HAREM ESCAPE- Marrakech, Morocco
The word harem, though rooted in the forbidden, has come to acquire a colloquial understanding relative to sanctuary…a realm dedicated to women where they can live, relax, and indulge in a haven of guiltless luxury to be spoil themselves, and be spoiled. To all of our female readers out there, if this sounds like something you can handle, then it’s your lucky day.

The Harem Escape is a concept creatively designed by renowned restaurateur Sandra Zwollo, who has called Morocco home for the past 13 years. The retreats are held at a stunning private home in Marrakech called Dar el Sadaka. which is a showpiece in its own right, resplendent with olive groves, perfumed flora, vivacious design and curious sculptures around every corner. The week-long retreats have been created to indulge women in indulgent spa and wellness pleasures including everything from massages, hammams, masks, and even yoga sessions and belly dancing performances. Not to worry, shopping and delicious dining haven’t been forgotten- in fact, guided personalized tours of the bustling souk along with fabulous organic cuisine.

As Sandra says of her motto, “No obligations, no self-consciousness, no restrictions, just lots of luxurious pampering and a healthy dose of self-indulgence to help you reach a full mental and physical cleansing.” Spa treatments included amongst a host of amenitites and activities, and they’re socially responsible as well, giving back to a local orphanage to assist disadvantaged young women. If that’s not Girl Power, we don’t know what is. http://www.harem-escape.com/
