Each year Marrakech hosts one of the world’s most important and competitive marathons and that’s because Moroccan athletes are between the best running long distances. Over 5000 athletes are expected on January 27th to run both, the marathon and the half marathon and we’d love to help them.
So we’re running a contest between the athletes, and we will award a free half an hour leg massage to the three Equity Point Marrakech guests that achieve the best marks at the marathon.
Will you run in Marrakech Marathon?
We’re always trying to please our guests and Marrakech is a very special place with a rich culture that is available to the visitors in many different ways. For that reason we offer dessert trips, Moroccan cuisine classes, spa sessions, and now: a Belly dance master class.
Our teacher, Jiham, is a great dancer and is willing to teach every of Equity Point Marrakech guests the sensual moves that have made belly dance famous all around the world.
The class lasts for 45 minutes, and when you finish there is tea and Moroccan pastries for all the pupils.
Hope you’ll like it!
A few weeks ago Equity Point Marrakech Hostel won the 2012 Hostelbookers Cleanliness Award for Excellence and we’re really pleased by the recognition.
This award wouldn’t be possible without all the efforts of our Marrakech housekeeping team, the women who work every day at the hostel and that appear in the picture.
Thanks to all the Marrakech staff for all the efforts that had led us to have such a quality hostel.
Marrakech is a city with winding streets where it is extremely easy to get lost. For that reason we have a really detailed map explaining with precision how to get to Equity Point Marrakech.
But even with the most perfect map, Marrakech Medina’s can be hard, but also charming, the first time you get there. For that reason we want to share a video made by one of our guests that shows the way from Djemaa-el-Fna to Equity Point Marrakech.

Last Monday it was a really special night at Equity Point Marrakech. First there was Live Moroccan Music during dinner, and then the incredible magician Funkito performed his show.
An amazing night to remember that we hope can repeat soon.
