At Suryalila Retreat Center, they provide different levels of accommodation to suit every budget. From glamping in the olive grove to relaxing in the luxury of their deluxe doubles, they will ensure you have the experience of a lifetime. Their furnishings and decorations have all been handpicked from Bali, India, and Morocco. The Spanish farmhouse-style wooden ceilings with beams and the terracotta tiled floors blend harmoniously with the vibrant Asian furniture and wall hangings. The inspiring decor is both soothing to the soul and delightful to the eye.

They offer two of the most beautiful and spacious yoga halls in Europe, a dedicated massage room with skilled massage therapists, and many gorgeous communal spaces like the pool, dining, and living areas to just relax and hang out in. Yoga retreat facilities also include Wi-Fi, office supplies, and anything else you might need during your stay.

The om dome

It was always part of Vidya’s dream to create the most magnificent yoga hall in Europe. The breathtaking om dome is the realization of that dream. In the om dome, there is a massive bay window overlooking one of the best views of beautiful rolling hills and a ruined convent. The dome can hold 50 yogis very comfortably. It is also a perfect space for conferences and concerts. The dome has underfloor heating, air-conditioning, a state-of-the-art sound system, atmospheric lighting, and a full set of yoga props, including Manduka Pro mats, backjack chairs, bolsters, cork blocks, blankets, and straps.

Ganesha yoga shala

Ganesha yoga shala is upstairs in the main house. It is a beautiful yoga hall with a wood and beam ceiling and wood floors. It has windows on both sides which allow for plenty of light and airflow. There is a balcony attached to the shala with beautiful views, and there is also a small alcove that contains shelves to house the yoga props. They have plenty of mats, blankets, straps, blocks, sandbags, and eye pillows. There is also a mezzanine outside the shala with a couple of couches. This yoga hall holds up to 30 students comfortably.

Organic farm and garden

They produce their own olives and olive oil as well as many of their own fruits and veggies. Everything they grow is organic; no chemicals or fertilizers are used. They have many fruit trees including figs, peaches, pears, apricots, pomegranates, apples, and grapes. In the cooler months, they like to grow plenty of greens, including kale and different varieties of cabbage and lettuce. In summer, they have an abundance of heritage tomatoes. Their organic free-range eggs come from their own happy chickens. Since they are vegetarian, their birds have long and happy lives.

Salt-water pool

Relax and rejuvenate in their delicious salt-water pool. The pool is set amidst stunning vistas of the beautiful Spanish countryside. It has a lovely covered terrace with dappled light which offers shade from the hottest part of the day. You can also choose to sun yourself poolside on wooden sunbeds in the full sunshine. Everyone is provided with a large bath sheet on arrival. Please shower before entering the pool. There is a shower beside the pool for this purpose.

Shakti boutique shop

The beautiful Shakti boutique is housed downstairs in Casa Ananda (the tower house). You will be informed of store opening times for your group. The boutique sells bath and beauty supplies, so you do not need to worry about carrying shampoo and soap when you come to Suryalila. They also sell a wide range of beautiful yoga clothes and leisurewear, as well as gifts, cards, books, and jewelry. Many of the items for sale in the shop were sourced in Asia and they have an eclectic collection of beautiful treasures from around the world.

Office services

Enjoy good access to the internet via their Wi-Fi network throughout the property. The office provides services to guests in need of printing (boarding passes), phone calls, faxing, access to a computer, use of the projector and audio equipment, and access to local maps.

Pets and animals

They have chickens, geese, donkeys, sheep, and alpacas. They also have horses living on the land. The horses are part Andalusian and belong to their friend Conny who runs a horse riding company and is happy to go on guided rides with their guests.

Program

This retreat is suitable for all yoga levels including beginners and anyone needing a nurturing getaway in nature. Stay in this beautiful retreat centre nestled in the Spanish mountains on the edge of the awe-inspiring Sierra de Grazalema national park. Enjoy dips in their refreshing saltwater pool, lovingly prepared vegetarian food and afternoon siestas in one of their softly swaying hammocks as the sun warms your shoulders.

One of the wellness activities you’ll enjoy is a walk in our favourite spot – along the banks of the flowing Majaceite river in El Bosque. Follow the beautiful river trail under a canopy of trees before stopping off in one of the inviting natural rock pools filled with pure mountain water for a revitalising cold dip. After, make your way back to Suryalila for a home cooked organic meal prepared using local, seasonal ingredients and a warming herbal tea made with fresh herbs grown in their permaculture gardens.

Retreat activities

  • An dynamic yoga class every morning
  • Restorative and Yin yoga sessions
  • One evening of Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation)
  • Two sound healing sessions

When you are not enjoying these experiences, allow the sun to kiss you at our beautiful salt water pool, lazily read a book in a hammock, or wander around the beautiful grounds and surroundings of Suryalila.
