"Individually tailored, very personal vacation experience"

The Surf Villa itself is stunning with spacious rooms and a nice, open community area. Kirsty planned every day individually fitting our needs with a surf lesson in the morning, street food adventures, work shops and Yoga classes on the roof top terrace. The atmosphere and surrounding, including the Yoga instructor Marcia and the surf instructor Batu, was friendly and intimate. Kirstys Eco-friendly approach to tourism is exemplary. It was a very active and diversified week.

"Excellent yoga, surf, food, accommodation, loved it all!"

I had an amazing time on this retreat. You will get to experience a really authentic side of Sri Lanka and meet wonderful people.

The accommodation is beautiful, newly built and tastefully designed, which really helps you to relax and unwind. The bedroom and bathroom was very clean and the bed was comfortable and there are mosquito nets. You will never want to leave the rooftop of the villa. Imagine your rooftop yoga practice surrounded by tree tops, with monkeys jumping around in the distance and magical sunsets!

The yoga sessions were excellent and tailored to what we felt like each evening. I had never surfed before and loved the surf lessons that we had each morning. The teacher was brilliant and I always felt comfortable and safe. The massages were in a beautiful and relaxing centre and each one took place just at the right time.

The food was always delicious and we were able to try many different Sri Lankan dishes. There were always plenty of vegan options.

What stood out on the retreat was the effort to support local people’s businesses and the care and attention to detail. We had many experiences that I don’t think I would have discovered otherwise and made my time in Sri Lanka really special.
