Suryalila is a beautiful old renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the Cortijo. In typical Spanish style, there are two inner courtyards, one of which blooms with orange and lemon trees.

The houses on the property are all artfully and tastefully furnished and decorated with careful attention to detail. Every room is uniquely beautiful with impeccable Feng Shui.

You can choose to stay in single, double or twin rooms in either a shared apartment in the old cortijo or in a cozy eco-house and luxurious yurts.

Retreat location

Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre, originally an olive hacienda, is located in the heart of the Spanish Andalusian Hills, close to the charming villages of Arcos de la Frontera and Prado del Rey. It is approximately 45 minutes from the historic and beautiful walled city of Cadiz and an hour’s drive from Sevilla, the vibrant heart of Andalucia.

On the edge of a stunning, mountainous national park, the property sits in a large river valley overlooking agricultural land and in the far distance, the white lakeside village of Bornos.

Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is located right in the heart of Andalusia and is surrounded by lovely rolling hills, lakes, and scenic white villages. It's ideally located to explore the stunning nature, fascinating culture, and historic monuments of Andalusia. It's also delighted to take care of you if you just want to rest and relax in a beautiful, gracious, and friendly home away from home.

It's only a short ride from the nearest town, Villamartin, where you’ll find buses to connect you to Seville, Ronda, Malaga, or Jerez if you would like to explore more of Andalusia as part of your stay. They can help you to arrange one-on-one yoga sessions, massages, and give you day trip tips to heighten your experience with them.

Food

Gourmet organic vegetarian cuisine

At Suryalila Retreat Centre, they pride themselves on their outstanding vegetarian fare. Meals are delicious, diverse, and beautifully presented, using all organic and mostly local ingredients. They are working towards supplying more and more of production needs from their own organic farm and garden!

The vegetarian kitchen

The kitchen is a happy and bustling environment and the cooks are all very creative and talented. The Suryalila Kitchen specializes in gourmet international vegetarian cuisine, using the freshest seasonal, locally sourced organic fruits and vegetables available, artfully prepared in a varied and truly eclectic international menu.

Eggs are gathered daily from their own happy chickens and when the season allows, you will enjoy the freshest of fruit picked from their own orchard of apricot, peach, fig, and pear trees. They regularly accommodate vegan, gluten-free, and non-dairy diets, so if you have any special dietary restrictions, just let them know.

If you are a little nervous about going vegetarian, don’t be! The gourmet vegetarian cuisine will be one of the greatest food experiences of your life and they promise you, you will be raving about the food long after you return home!

Indoor and outdoor dining

They also believe that where you eat is almost as important as what you eat! They provide dining tables both indoors and outdoors so that you can eat in the large beautiful dining room or enjoy your meal al fresco, watching the stunning sunsets over the Andalucian hill-towns.

Dining room hours

They serve delicious organic meals three times per day. The usual meal times are:

  • 09:30 Breakfast
  • 13:30 Lunch
  • 19:00 Dinner

Amrita Cafe and Juice Cafe

Amrita bar is a vibrant addition to the retreat center. They offer a menu of cold-pressed organic juices, scrumptious smoothies, delicious snacks, Kombucha, and delicious health-conscious hot drinks such as spicy Indian Chai, Vegan bulletproof coffee, Ceremonial cacao, Mocacao, and the personal favorite, Golden Milk, which contains a super-healthy blend of exotic spices. Wine by the glass and artisanal beer bears are also available.

Suryalila organic olive oil - Liquid gold

They harvest olives in late October. They usually enlist a few locals to help with this, as it is quite skilled labor. The trees must be pruned every year, which is hard work with so many trees and involves skillful use of a chainsaw. Harvesting the olives involves shaking the trees onto a tarpaulin and also hand-picking, the way it has been done for thousands of years.

After shaking the olives off the trees, they need to clean them and then either soak them in brine or take them to Zahara de la Sierra where they get them milled. In harvesting season, when you go to the olive mill, you need to wait in line. You are given a number, like in a busy office, and have to wait for your number to be called. They will call you half an hour before your turn and in the harvest season, the mill works 24 hours, so you might be called up in the middle of the night.

After your olives are milled with big grindstones, you are given a number of huge containers of olive oil. These containers contain ample olive oil to last the kitchen the whole year and also allow them to sell some to guests in the shop, with their own label designed by Rebecca, the artist and founder of Yoga Will Save the World.

Suryalila olive oil is nutty and sweet and bitter at the same time and has a deep gold color with a greenish hue. They are experimenting with different kinds of marinade to flavor the olives for eating. It’s possible to add chili and garlic and peppers and different herbs and they are still looking for that perfect recipe.
