Lion’s Rest Hotel is hosting three unique and intimate retreats this coming season; don’t miss out! We are the area’s top-rated accommodation, facing directly onto unspoilt beach and the Indian Ocean. It’s the perfect place to reconnect with your self through yoga and surf. Refresh, rejuvenate, relax, and unwind in this unique landscape as we explore the four elements of Earth, Fire, Water, and Air.
This is definitely a Sri Lankan yoga retreat with a difference. We aspire to ignite and enhance your inner creativity with a journey of stimulating yoga workshops, fun surfs in tropical waters, and original activities connecting you with your natural surroundings.
A selection of eight premium, private, fan and air-conditioned rooms available to choose from:
Our retreat begins on Sunday (and we invite guests to check in from 2 p.m.) and finishes on the following Saturday, checking out after our closing ceremony, any time after 12 p.m.
If you are interested in extending your stay with Lion's Rest either prior or post retreat, we are happy to accommodate you. Sri Lanka is a widely fascinating country and we encourage (if you have the time) to explore it further on your trip; we have a range of recommendations for you if you so wish.
Our full package includes both yoga and surf. If you or your partner would like to join without partaking in an activity, we can be sure to accommodate you. Both yoga and surf are suitable for everyone from beginners who will be learning their first ‘pop-up’ or ‘down dog’ to those who wish to delve deeper into their yoga practice or surf technique.
A retreat is a fantastic opportunity for a solo adventure; so don't worry if you are coming by yourself, we guarantee you will be leaving with an abundance of new friendships.
Please note that on Wednesday after our Morning Vinyasa Flow and breakfast, there will be a ‘free day’ in which you can explore the local area and cuisine. We have a wide range of adventures. You can go on solo or with your newfound retreat friends, from a sunset safari to a tour of Galle Fort. This ‘free day’ is excluded from the retreat schedule and so will be at your own expense.
Our teacher, Rachel, came to yoga to solve back issues after years of competitive swimming so she is well attuned to the anatomical needs of students. Beginners and experienced yogis will be nurtured and challenged and all are welcome. Tone, stretch, breathe and relax. Each class will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. Rachel will guide you through postures and adjustments, with added pranayam breath control to enhance mindfulness. With a keen interest in surfing, creativity and connection to the natural world, Rachel has help cultivate this inspiring retreat.
Lion's Rest is a top rated eight-room boutique hotel situated right on the beach in an idyllic Sri Lankan fishing village, Gurubebila.
We aim cater to all food needs. The majority of our carefully selected menu will be vegan with some small additions of fish and dairy. We shop local with daily fresh produce. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance so we can cater for you. Included in your package are the following:
Due to the design of the retreat, you will be given an opportunity for free time daily, in which we encourage you to express your creativity individually. We will provide the resources for you to do such whether that be a free surf, journaling, drawing, or simply just chilling by our pool.
