from Ireland, May 2018
We stayed for 4 nights only, but it was amazing! Host Robin ( with Mariela) were so dedicated, flexible and caring about us. We managed to do everything possible: surfing, snorkel with the sharks, seeing turtles, visiting resort island, doing yoga and the most importantly they served us was amazingly delicious food ( we’ve heard from everyone that it’s the best food you’ll find in all the maldives � And the brownies and coconut cake were too good for words to describe!
Highly reccomended for everyone whether you are a single traveller or a group - all are welcome here.

"Great time surf and yoga with amazing people"
surf yoga retreat runs by lovely couple Robin and Mariela, Robin was most helpful for every single thing I needed and was highly available before my arrivale. the place is new, kept clean and tide, the room was very spacious and has good a/c, which is important when relaxing in the mid day, bed was very comftable and a great shower .
Robin was organizing each day to suit each persone preference, so if I wanted to snorkel, surf or do yoga he was personalizing a schedule just for you. Robin even walked with me 6am to jailsbreak just to show me around the spot and the best way to get in from the beach. Mariela is a great yoga teacher, as a surfer too, she is did soft yoga emphasising on streaches that exactly what your body needs after a surf, also she is very open and whilling to personalize the session on demand, I felt very calm and relaxed after sessions with beautiful sunset view.
There was a variety of food, all was great! and always was plenty left.
Robin, an experienced surfer and surf photographer, was accompaning each surfing trip, making sure that all goes by plan, giving great advices and tips about surfing and the spots and taking photos with his gopro and drone, so cool!
Robin and Mariela did everything to make sure I was feeling comfortable, happy and was taking advantage of each day of my stay:)
Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!

The Surf Yoga Retreat get‘s my full recommendation to everybody who enjoys
-delicious and healthy food
-clean cozy rooms with ultra-comfortable beds
-to have the feeling that you stay with friends rather than just being a customer
-surfing, snorkeling, yoga or boat trips
I stayed at Marielas and Robins Surf Yoga Retreat for 6 nights and I was lucky because my shared room was upgraded to a private room. Mariela and Robin are super friendly and really took care of everything. They helped me arranging my arrival and departure ferries and quickly responded to all my E-Mails. Every evening we were sitting together having dinner and really good conversations. We also panned the schedule for meals, excursions and yoga for the next day together. Mariela and Robin are very flexible and always tried to fulfill every single guests wishes and combine them in the best possible way. One day for example we did a full day boat excursion where we first made a stop for snorkeling with the whole group and afterwards we split up so that some guests could enjoy Thulusdhoo island and the others went for surfing at Chickens. At the end of my stay I exchanged photos and videos with the other guests and of course also with Robin.
I can only say thank you Mariela and Robin for this wonderful week!

"Brilliant very relaxing and exciting surf and yoga holiday"
Both Robin and Mariela do everything to make the most out of the holiday. Waves have been a bit big for me but they helped me improve my skills. Yoga has been the perfect balance with the surf and snorkeling. We spent lots of time on the sea which I loved. They also provide amazing food at their place and have great rooms with a very comfy bed. Thank you both for that great experience - I will be back!!
