Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre 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 property sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive 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.

Suryalila has three yoga halls. Ganesha Yoga Shala has a gorgeous wooden ceiling as well as a wooden floor and is filled with light from windows on both walls as well as a skylight. It also has a lovely balcony with benches for enjoying the expansive views. Ganesha Yoga Shala comfortably holds 30 people.

The Om Dome has been dubbed the most magnificent yoga hall in Europe. The sacred geometry creates a cathedral-like space, which is awe-inspiring.

The Dome overlooks rolling hills, olive groves, and a ruined convent. Inside, the Dome boasts underfloor heating and cooling and two long walls for practicing inversions. The walls have been beautifully decorated with colorful murals of Indian gods and Tibetan imagery.

There is a state of the art sound system as well as atmospheric lighting. The Dome can comfortably hold 60 people practicing yoga and a lot more for concerts and other events. Both of the yoga spaces are fully outfitted with yoga props.


May is one of the most beautiful months in Andalucia, our gardens and olive groves are blooming and thriving. During your stay, you will get the chance to immerse yourself in the soothing embrace of Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre while taking part in our project, learning how to grow your own organic food and get inspired by permaculture.

Permaculture is a design framework that mimics natural ecosystems to create sustainable ways of living. It is about taking time to observe and value the diversity of beneficial relationships between all living organisms and our inner landscape.

This experience will give you a deep insight into how to turn your back garden into a little wildlife haven, step into the world of permaculture or simply embrace a more sustainable lifestyle and a yoga practice.


Typically your day will start with an energising morning Yoga session, followed by a nutritious brunch and a class focused on organic horticulture, soil regeneration and permaculture principles.

After class, you will have time to lounge by the salt water pool, take a walk in the surrounding countryside or relax and take in the atmosphere.

In the afternoon, we will explore how permaculture principles can be put into practice and get our hands dirty in the gardens.

One day will include a guided foraging hike in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, learning about wild indigenous plants, their properties or visiting neighbouring projects which are contributing to sustainable care of the land (subject to availability).

Before dinner, you will be able to join restorative yoga classes or treat yourself to a massage. Dinner is served buffet style and can be enjoyed in our cosy dining room or in our patios and pagodas with countryside views. The evenings are free for you to enjoy the sunsets, explore the area, relax or hang out with other guests.

Retreat location

Suryalila is nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema. This majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.
