The Combadi Insight:

When the summer is long gone and you are looking back at the sunny days in regret... a late October week of luxury, Vinyasa and restorative yoga in 5* luxury in one of Egypt's most exclusive resorts is a gift that keeps giving.

Discover this secret little paradise on the Red Sea!

Treat yourself to a luxury yoga retreat in the charming town of El Gouna, one of Egypt's most stylish and exclusive destinations in the area surrounded by beaches, islands and lagoons and one of the Red Sea’s premier leisure destination. El Gouna is also renowned for its warm tropical climate and year-round sunshine. Stay in 5-star luxury—our hotel offers a private beach and top-end spa. The hotel can be found next to the quaint marina town boasting spectacular architecture, restaurants and boutique shopping.

You’ll have the opportunity to take part in two yoga classes daily by the sea, and plenty of other activities are on offer to keep you entertained in between classes—kitesurfing, diving, golfing, a stroll along the marina, a boat trip or desert safari ride, or just relax by the pool or beach. All yoga levels are welcome, and our teacher modifies classes depending on your ability. Group activities and group dining are all optional—as are yoga classes. No guilt trips for sleeping in, no rules regarding food and drinks…just the opportunity for you to truly let go and relax.

Our groups are small and we welcome solo travellers—many participants come on their own and join the group.

  • 8:30am – 10am: Morning active yoga class
  • 10am – 10:45am: Breakfast
  • 10:45am – 4pm: Free time: pool, beach, town, spa, golf, diving, the choice is yours!
  • 4pm – 5pm: Restorative yoga class
  • 5pm – on: Free time
  • Evening: Dinner in El Gouna town or one of the hotel's restaurants
  • Daily morning and evening yoga classes
  • Luxury accommodation in Deluxe Sea view rooms at the 5-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa
  • Transfers between airport and hotel
  • Gourmet buffet breakfast
  • Bottle of sparkling wine in room upon arrival
  • Private beach with beds and umbrellas free of charge
  • Internet access
  • Yoga mats
  • Bottled water daily
  • All taxes
  • Access to yoga teacher throughout the day for any yoga-related questions
  • A second Yoga Escapes representative on location for recommendations, to organize activities, dinners, excursions, and troubleshoot any issues

You should schedule your arrival before dinner on Day One. We will meet up for a group dinner and yoga classes start the next morning. The last yoga class is on the morning of the last day when your check out time is.

To stay one more day after the Yoga Retreat will cost extra

Our yoga classes suit all levels and we modify poses so everyone can practice at their own pace.

Morning classes are based on Vinyasa flow and are energetic, while the evening yoga classes are based on yin yoga and are restorative and calming; holding poses longer, allowing for longer meditation and relaxation. The fourth morning gives you time to yourself: take a day excursion, go for an early dive, or why not sleep in? We help organize activities and dinners for the group, but everything is optional—you are free to join the group whenever you want, or simply spend time relaxing on your own.

About El Gouna

El Gouna has been officially recognized as Egypt's most environmentally-friendly holiday destination and works hard to maintain, preserve and protect its unique natural environment. Located north of Hurghada, it stretches along 10km of pristine beachfront and spread across a series of islands and lagoons. The beautiful marina town is famous for its award-winning architecture blending traditional and modern oriental styles.

A creative and diverse community of entrepreneurs, artists, environmentalists, and sports enthusiasts have made El Gouna their home, lending the town an eclectic and upscale international flavour. The area’s desert islands and secluded sandy beaches are a true paradise. With so many beaches to choose from, you need never visit the same one twice.

The town is immaculately maintained and offers a wide variety of sport and entertainment options, with some of the world’s best marine-based activities. The main town is a shopper's paradise—outlets offering local ethnic specialties to high fashion shops, bustling inner courtyards, winding alleys and a series of brick domes filled with bazaars, boutiques and arts & craft galleries.

You can expect to find world-class cuisine and trendy nightspots in El Gouna—from superb restaurants and stylish cafés to beach BBQs and seaside bars. After sunset, life here continues to thrive with dozens of nightspots, international musicians and local artists offering nightly performances.
