Boutique Villa Shangri-La - Magic Surf Morocco
Reviews (6)
5 out of 5

Villa Shangri to La, Surf & Yoga, by Magic Surf Morocco, is located in the village of Aourir (Banana Village), at 1 km from Tamraght.
The Villa has a private outdoor swimming pool, a stunning garden with mountain view, a rooftop terrace with mountain and ocean view and 6 rooms with private bathrooms on 3 floors.

Location

Aourir (Banana Village), Tamraght and Taghazout are 3 traditional Berber surf / fishing villages with small shops and beach front cafes. They offer a real change of scenery at the gates of Europe with its rich and colourful culture, delicious cuisine, warm and dry climate all year round, amazingly beautiful beaches and a wide variety of surf spots.
In Aourir, you'll find banks with ATM, many shops of all kinds and cafes and restaurants at a walking distance from Villa Shangri to La

Thanks to low cost airlines, flights are frequent and very good value, there is no jet lag (1 hour time difference generally), the flight time is short (about 3 hours), and when you get here you will find a professional, friendly, dedicated, and attentive team.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The accommodation was lovely, very clean and the staff very friendly and the food delicious. There is two little shop just around the corner if you need to buy stuff (shampoo, snack, bottle of water etc..)
There is also a Hammam nearby that will make you feel amazing after a long day hiking/surfing. And some nice little coffee/restaurant.


How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lesson were lots of fun and very professional. The instructor looked after me very well and was very friendly.

My friends and I (3 girls) decided to try something new for a long weekend break and decided (based on the reviews on tripadvisor) to go with Sabine and Zak at Magic Surf for a 4 days active break. We knew they would be good from the reviews, but they exceeded all my expectations.

Zak is a great instructor, patient and funny, and puts you immediately at ease. We did not think we would be able to stand on a surf board in the short time we had there, but we did and it was all thanks to Zak's great tutelage!

Sabine is a fantastic host, so full of life and friendly, nothing is too much or impossible for her. She will take care of all your requests and her main purpose is to keep her guests happy, entertained, relaxed! They will take you to restaurants in neighbouring villages, and souks, and even partying in Agadir - anything you want, just ask and they will make it possible, and they will also come with additional suggestions for spending a good few hours exploring the area or chilling with a beer somewhere overlooking the amazing views.

The accommodation is basic but very clean, Mohammed at the reception is so funny and friendly and will strive to provide anything you need/request. There are a few shops next to the riad where you can get supplies (bottled water, post cards etc). Sabine and Zak will drive you to the surfing points and all the attractions so all you need to do is let yourself enjoy your holiday in their fantastic company.

In 4 days we manage to cover surfing, horse riding, yoga, hammam, massage (highly recommended!!)We were treated like old friends, or part of the family and we will definitely return!! I miss it already and I only just got back!

I didn't really know what to expect with Magic Surf as it's my first ever experience at a surf camp but I can happily say that I had an amazing holiday. We kind of stumbled on them to be honest, they're a relatively new surf company so don't come up in searches straight away like the main camps (surf Maroc, etc) but after comparing packages they seemed to offer the same thing for a much cheaper price.

Sabine and Zak were exceptional hosts. Immediately they made us feel at home. They drove us around even stopping at shops/banks should we need alcohol or to change money; they chatted and ate dinner with us in the evenings (beautiful tagines!) they organised other activities besides surfing (night out in agadir, trip to paradise valley, hammam and massage). We travelled in a small group but they always gave us free space as well. It was nice that we were treated to feel like friends rather than clients. And if they did ever get sick of us they were very professional to not show it!

As a group of beginners just about able to stand up, our surfing improved massively with the help of instructor Zak. Having grown up all his life in Morocco, he knew all the surf spots well and it was great to get that local knowledge. Sabine would take photos and videos of our surfing which Zak reviewed with us at the end of each day.. This actually helped loads to correct ourselves and gave us a giggle at our mistakes!

Accommodation at the riad is authentic and clean. Luxury it is not but it has all the basics you need (rooms are ensuite which are a bonus). Food was great but if you fancy a change of scenery Sabine and Zak will happily take you to one of the local restaurants. Another bonus is the sunny rooftop terrace. The only downfall would be the noise at night but after a day spent paddling in the sea you soon sleep through this!

All in all a fantastic experience, one that I'd happily repeat with Magic Surf. :)

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Had a brilliant week over the New Year with Magic Surf Camp. I was initially worried if my 7 year old son would enjoy himself but Zak the surf instructor was excellent with him and now my son can't wait to back.
Nothing was too much trouble for Sabine and Zak and it was more like staying with friends from the offset. Accommodation and food was great as was the day trip to Paradise Valley.
Zak and Sabine have excellent knowledge of the local area and will make sure that you are taken to a break that will be suitable for your level.
We couldn't have asked for more and will definitely be returning and if you're thinking of going surfing/staying with a surf camp then I highly recommend Magic Surf. Paul B

I booked a week with magic surf for the beginning of August, as a solo traveller I was slightly nervous as it was my first trip alone. Sabine was amazing and put my mind to rest, keeping in constant contact right from booking up until the trip and even after I had got back home. She was so friendly and quick to respond to all messages it really made me feel at ease.
Once there zak was awesome, he has a very evident passion for surfing and is so patient and helpful.
Veronica was a wonderful yoga instructor and has awakened a love for yoga within me.
Magic surf really made me feel like one of the family and it was so wonderful spending the day out surfing and then the evenings eating together and hanging out.
I met some absolutely amazing people which i am truly greatful for and would recommend magic surf to anyone!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Me and my boyfriend went to Agadir to just have a few relaxing days at the end of our stay in Morocco. Magic Surf Morocco really gave us everything that we wished for during our stay there. An easy hotel, fun activities during the days including a day trip to a beautiful place called Paradise, surfing and yoga. They had really good local knowledge and always knew the best places to take us. Also, they were very friendly and really cared about us.

It got a little chilly sometimes at night in Agadir even if we went in summertime, so make sure bring an extra sweatshirt for when the sun sets if you go out to eat at night or something.

Also, make sure to be prepared for "Moroccan time" - if they tell you dinner at 7 o clock at the hotel it might as well mean 9 o clock - you never really know. But that is part of the charm with the relaxed lifestyle.

Also, make sure to do yoga - it feels wonderful after a full day of surfing. I recommend to travel with Magic Surf Morocco - they know what they are doing and always keep their word. We have a lovely stay!

The surrounding 10km area of Taghazout & Tamraght have gained legendary status as a surf mecca and without doubt Morocco's surf capital. There are not many places in the world that have waves accessible to beginner, intermediate and advanced surfers but this area has it all.

Taghazout waves includes the beginner/intermediate surf spots Panaromas & Hash's Point. Further south is the long stretch of beach that leads to the next town of Tamraght, a fantastic learner area with two advanced breaks at the south end Devils Rock & Banana Point.

On the north end of town is Moroccos most famous wave, Anchor Point, a world class long right break. And around this headland is La Source & Killers, another two of Moroccos most reliable & famous waves.

10km further north is the town of Tamri which has a great selection of beginner & intermediate waves as well as a few secret spots.
