Apart from being a tourism management specialist and marketing and manager assistant at Suryalila’s office, she leads and organizes various retreats including wellness retreats, most famously the "Adventure and Yoga Retreat" - dubbed “the retreat of a lifetime” by previous participants.
Suryalila is situated on a quiet country lane, between the charming white villages of Villamartin and Prado del Rey. It is nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. 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 with rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.
