Under The Bodhi Tree Retreats invites you to join this ultimate girls retreat in a beautiful nature of Sri Lanka. With plenty of self-development, you will spend time learning to surf, taking a SUP yoga class, creating your own clothes with a local dressmaker, and more. Let go of the limitations that block you from being the best version of yourself and start falling into self-love, realizing your beauty and worth, and having a whole lot of fun and feminine bonding along the way.
Fort Bazaar is a stunning, boutique, and design hotel nestled inside Galle Fort. It will be your home for one night on the last day with its super comfy beds, great service, and fantastic location.
Please note if you are booking fairly close to the retreat date, then there is no a guarantee for the accommodation at the Fort Bazaar. In this case, you will stay in a hotel nearby with a similar standard.
Talalla is incredibly charming with its pretty bungalows dotted around the hotel grounds with private or aired en suite rooms. It is also nestled on arguably one of the prettiest beaches in Sri Lanka which is perfect for morning or sunset strolls.
You will be given the choice of a ground floor room closed in by wooden shutters and an open air bathroom or first floor rooms where the room is protected by blinds, allowing you to absorb the jungle atmosphere. There is also a very large pool, which is perfect for relaxing around in the day.
You will end your trip with a night at a luxurious hotel in the stunning UNESCO world heritage site Galle Fort. Packed full of beauty and charm with its colonial architecture, you will have a chance to explore many boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants.
Sri Lanka is renowned for its semi precious gem stones and you will find many talented jewellery designers with shops in the fort selling stunning pieces for very reasonable prices. You will also be able to buy some lovely chemical free creams and lotions from one of the local Ayurvedic skin care companies. After a day of shopping and relaxing, you will enjoy a traditional high tea at the world renowned Amangalle Hotel and end the day with a final group dinner.
In SUP yoga, you swap your mat for a board and a sweaty studio for a glassy lagoon floor before practicing with the sweet scent of the tropical air and the sound of birds singing around you.
As one of the first SUP yoga teachers in the world, Under The Bodhi Tree Retreats was delighted to find this idyllic spot run by SUP Yoga Sri Lanka where you could take your practice out on the water. This really will be a once in a lifetime experience.
Yoga and surf are both incredible at keeping your mind focused, present, and really complement each other. There is something so incredible about refreshing yourself in the waves and riding a perfect high from that wave you caught.
You do not have to have any experience, although if you are a confident surfer, you feel free to go out the back and catch those glassy green waves. Otherwise you can take a class sticking to the more manageable white water guided by an expert surf instructor so that you can get up on that first wave.
You will start the day with self-inquiry meditation. You will use a variety of techniques to help you practice gratitude and self-love and release whatever blockages standing in your light. You shall then work into feminine flows designed to bring out your beautiful shakti essence.
In general, you will have a morning Vinyasa class and an afternoon Restorative or Slow flow. However, this may vary according to the days activities. You can expect beautiful and creative flows, calming scents, and inspiring music to set the stage for our practice.
This package includes a SUP yoga class, a surf class, and a visit to the local orphanage and Galle Fort.

From day one to day seven, the retreat will be held in Talalla Retreat, located near Talalla Beach. Amongst all of Sri Lanka’s beaches, Talalla Beach surely must be king. The sun rises out of the sea for a fuchsia velvet sky mirrored by crystal waters and a daily scene set to take your breath away.
The water is a minute’s stroll from your villa through tall palm trees and soft grass. The sea in this secluded cove is generally calm for safe swimming when most other southwest beaches are blown out by strong onshore winds.
