The Souk Department

With our workations we combine unique travel experiences focused on personal and business development, finally, give you the kick to set aside time for the things you really should be doing - for both yourself and your business. It’s more than just nice getaway. It’s a chance for women to come together, share their experiences and grow in more ways than one. It’s also undeniably useful for remote female workers, as it gives you the ability to see, experience and learn more than you ever could at home. A workation creates a space for inspiration and collaboration. It’s a chance to get out of your comfort zone, reset and focus on the things that are and are not working for your business.

Frequntly Asked Questions



Do we all sleep in the same accommodation?

Yes! One of the magic things about the workations is how close the group become after spending a couple of days together. Being in the same accommodation is very important for bonding! We sleep in one of the most stunning riads in and around Marrakech. Girls, we got your Instagram feed covered. We privatised the whole riad, so there won’t be any other guests.


Am I able to declare it as business costs?

For most countries; yes! Workations are costs you invest in yourself and your company and are therefore business related costs. We provide a coworking space, accommodation, workshops and everything around the coworking and skill sharing. You can declare it as business costs, impossible to do when you’re ‘just’ on holiday and a nice bonus for every entrepreneur.


Is there time off to work on my company or see Marrakech?

We have a busy schedule, but there is also enough free time. You will work on your company during the workshops and masterclasses, but in a different way. In the time off , you can choose what you want to do. Answer emails, elaborate the input of the workshops or discover the city. It’s up to you!


Will someone pick me up from the airport?

Yes, as soon as you arrive to Marrakech airport, you have nothing to worry about anymore. Transfer is included. You book your own flights, share the details with us and our driver will be waiting for you at the airport. After a 15 minute drive, you arrive at the riad, where we’ll be waiting for you!



The workation with The Souk Department is still one of my favorite business memories of last year. It was such an amazing experience, that I can't wait to go on the next trip with Claimy! This is such a treat for you and your business, that I believe every business owner needs to join at least one Souk Department Workation in their life!

01. Elsa - The Confetti Collective

I didn't expect to have so much personal development during this workation. I'm so grateful I was a part of this amazing experience and feel that I'm leaving with so much learnings and an improved business. The workshops were so valuable and on top of that the other girl bosses gave me many new insights as well.

02. Naomi - Naoomevents

I wouldn't want to miss this workation for the world. It was so special to see how close the group became, all like minded woman who are there for the same reason; personal and business growth. And we got plenty of that!
