Your 7 night accommodations at Suryalila Retreat Centre:
Suryalila is a beautiful old renovated olive farm nestled serenely in a large one
valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. On the beautiful 45 acres you
will find eight houses that form the cortège (with two inner courtyards with orange
and lemon trees), a plethora of yurts and “glamping” tents, three magnificent
yoga halls (one being the state-of-the-art Om Dome), a gorgeous dining hall with
organic juice cafe, yoga shoppe, salt water pool, eco sauna, organic vegetable
gardens and farm, and many spectacular areas with horses, alpacas, donkeys,
and chickens. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the
breathtaking vista extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and
lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.
The Om Dome
The Most Magnificent Yoga Hall in All of Europe
The Dome has an underfloor heating and cooling system, a state of the art sound
system and atmospheric lighting. It is fully equipped with Manduka Pro Mats,
blocks, straps, bolsters and eye pillows. The Om Dome, the Moon Shala and the
Ganesha Shala are beautiful spaces to practice our yoga!
3 Delicious Vegetarian Meals a Day included in your stay!
Suryalila prides themselves on their outstanding vegetarian fare. Meals are
delicious, diverse, and beautifully presented, using all organic and mostly
local ingredients (much from their own gardens and farm!)
Beautiful Places to Rest Your Head at Night:
The furnishings and decorations at Suryalila have all been imported from
Bali, India and Morocco. The Spanish farmhouse-style wooden ceilings with
beams and the terracotta tiled floors blend harmoniously with the exotic
Asian furniture and wall hangings. The designer decor is both soothing to the
soul and delightful to the eye. Such a wonderful place to retreat!
