questions we're often asked
What's the difference between Etu and Workout Away?
Etu (explore, train and unwind) is a diffusion product of Workout Away. The workouts are the same, but the accommodation is four-star rather than five. The Etu offering is simple, and we've taken away things like complimentary gift packs and private dining to build a retreat geared towards the price-conscious traveller.
What's included in an Etu by Workout Away retreat?
All HIIT, yoga, circuits & strength and conditioning classes
Beautiful four-star accommodation
Web support with all bookings
I'm a solo traveller. Is that ok?
The majority of our guests are solo travellers or friends that travel together, so if you're on the fence about taking a solo trip, just do it!
How do I go about booking excursions?
Four weeks before your retreat, you'll be emailed a welcome pack. The pack will have all the info on which excursions are available, as well as the booking links!
How does payment work?
You can pay all at once or split the payment in two with a 50% deposit. The rest will need to be paid eight weeks before your retreat.
Are flights provided?
No, you will need to make your own travel arrangements. We recommend skyscanner.com for the best prices to Marrakesh.
Do I need to be super fit to take part?
Not at all! Everybody's fitness levels are different. If you want to train hard, sure, we can help you with that. If you want to take it easier, you can do that too. Remember, all of our activities are optional. This is your holiday, take it at your own pace and enjoy yourself!
How big are the retreat groups?
Our maximum number of people is 16 per trip.
Are meals included?
Yes, once you've arrived at the hotel, all of your meals are included. Meals are served all-inclusive buffet style.
What about drinks, are they included?
They sure are, even the alcoholic ones, but don't drink before workouts please ;)
What's the food like?
Delicious! It's buffet style, and you'll love the huge selection.
What's the accommodation like?
The Palmeraie of Marrakesh is a palm oasis with more than 100,000 palm trees, planted during the Almoravid period and covering 130 square kilometres. It's located just 15 minutes from The Medina, the historic centre of this exotic city, which houses many treasures, including the iconic Jemaa el-Fnaa square, Koutoubia Mosque and Bahia Palace.
There's a free bus so you can enjoy the city. The hotel is decorated in true Moroccan style, with two pools; one is adults only!
Do I have to share my room?
No, there are different options available. You can share or you can go private, the choice is yours.
What about alcohol? Can we drink?
Of course! It's your trip. We don't recommend that you go to the clubs and get back an hour before sunrise yoga, but a couple of glasses is fine.
Can I come alone?
Yes, and lots of our guests do. You're going to make friends anyway!
Are transfers included?
No. We want to keep the prices of our retreats as competitive as we can, and many of our guests come from different places to join us, therefore not needing airport collection.
What is the minimum age?
