Yoga Retreat Centre is a little different than a regular hotel. We have three rooms (our double deluxe rooms), which have their own bathrooms. The rest of our rooms are laid out Spanish farmhouse style and share bathrooms. The bathrooms are luxurious, usually with tubs, and are typically shared with two or three other guests.

We never have men and women sharing bathrooms (unless they are couples). The bathrooms are cleaned well every day. There are also beautifully furnished glamping tents for more low budget traveling, that share outside bathrooms and showers

During this retreat, you will enjoy daily horse trails in the stunning landscape of rural Andalusia, daily yoga classes and delicious vegetarian full board meals in the yoga hotel with view on the horses, olive trees, and rolling hills. Discover the surprising variety of nature around with our friendly Andalusian part bred horses.

The rides will lead you through endless sunflower fields, to an old Armitage, and under ancient oak trees. The horses are about 1.55 meters tall and riders need to weigh less than 85 kilograms. We will have separate riding group for beginners and more advanced riders, and helmets can be provided.

Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is located right in the heart of Andalucia and is surrounded by lovely rolling fields, lakes, and scenic white villages. We are ideally located to explore the stunning nature, fascinating culture and historic monuments of Andalucia.

At Suryalila Retreat Centre, we pride ourselves on our outstanding vegetarian fare. Meals are delicious, diverse, and beautifully presented, using all organic and mostly local ingredients. We produce our own olives and olive oil, as well as, many of our own fruits and veggies.

Everything we grow is organic - no chemicals or fertilizers are used. We have many fruit trees including figs, peaches, pears, apricots, pomegranates, apples, and grapes. In the cooler months, we like to grow plenty of greens, including kale and different varieties of cabbage and lettuce. In summer we have an abundance of heritage tomatoes.

Our organic free-range eggs come from our own happy chickens. Since we are vegetarian, our birds have long and happy lives! Our prices include full board buffets - we do not have room service or an a la carte menu.
