immerse yourself in yoga, meditation and Andalusian sunshine
at the spectacular Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre, Spain
Setting the scene
Nestled in the rolling hills of Andalusia, Spain, the Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is one of the most enjoyable, stress-free, enriching environments you could possibly imagine.
See yourself gently swaying in a relaxing hammock, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, whilst soaking up the majestic panoramic views of rolling hills and fields of sunflowers. The sense of vastness, expansiveness and connection of this beautiful place is inspiring and uplifting.
Suryalila is a magical spot – you feel the deep peace the moment you arrive, and after one night, you never want to leave again.
Suryalila is a spectacular retreat centre! Having visited many retreat centres it’s rare to find one that has so many outstanding qualities – the location, facilities, yoga centre are all incredible. Their staff are incredibly helpful and accommodating and the food was phenomenal!

Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is located on 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 centre sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive trees. They also grow organic vegetables and fruits and keep free-range chickens for eggs.
Nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. A striking part of the natural beauty is the breath-taking vista extending in all directions.
A typical day
Typically, your day will start with an energising early
morning yoga session, followed by meditation. There will be optional morning activities and
therapies on offer, with plenty of time to just sit back and unwind, read a
book, or socialise with fellow retreat guests.
Enjoy relaxing afternoons by the salt water swimming pool, walking in the surrounding countryside, visiting local towns or doing whatever takes your fancy.
Before dinner, there will be a restorative yoga and meditation class, encouraging you to let go, relax and explore your inner world of peace and gratitude.
The evenings are free to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets, explore the local area, relax with other guests or take advantage of the optional holistic therapies and life coaching sessions available at specially reduced retreat rates.
If you wish to explore the region further, you can visit the historical cities of Arcos de la Frontera, Sevilla, Cordoba, Jerez de la Frontera, Ronda, Cadiz, Veher de la Frontera, Tarifa and Malaga – all located within a one to two-hour driving range.
Some of Europe’s most stunning and empty beaches lie on the Costa de la Luz, stretching from Cadiz to Tarifa, and can be reached by car in 90 minutes from Suryalila.
