  • Review by Dayna from Canada

    "My sister and I stayed at the retreat for three days and it was such an incredible experience. The facilities were very nice, always clean, and had everything we could have possibly needed. The food was so fresh and delicious! We had the chance to surf and ride horses for the first time with the help of some great teachers and we had so much fun! We also trekked part of Rota Vincentina and the views were breathtaking! The yoga studio is so beautiful, it's so quiet and it felt surreal to hear the peaceful nature sounds that surround you as you practice. Antonio made the yoga classes extremely relaxing but still a nice challenge for us, a great balance. We did so much in only three days and we loved all the new experiences. I would highly recommend staying with Antonio, it was really amazing!"

    "The yoga resort was like a secret escape, in the middle of the forest but beautiful and peaceful.  We booked all inclusive, yoga, activities plus all meals - it was an amazing deal for what they offer. They offered a great variety of activities and the bowl of fruit and cereals at breakfast was definitely a highlight! The other retreat participants were friendly and welcoming and we were a fun and fantastic group!"

  • Review by Allegra from Deutschland

    "Schon die Anfahrt zur Surya Lodge ist ein Erlebnis. Sie liegt wirklich inmitten der Natur und sehr idyllisch. Die Anlage ist sehr schön und gepflegt und wir waren positiv überrascht von Größe und Austattung des Zimmers und des Yoga Raums. Auch der Poolbereich ist wirklich schön. Besonders hervorzuheben sind Lisa & Antonio: Die beiden managen die Retreats und sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten dank ihnen und der anderen Teilnehmer eine unvergessliche Zeit. Besonders gut hat uns das Essen gefallen: vor allem die frischgespressten Säfte waren hervorragend- und das leckere selbst gebackene Brot, das es zum Frühstück gab."
