Suryalila, is a wonderful place to hold a retreat. The unique and beautiful teaching dome, spacious landscape, nutritious food, welcoming staff, roaming horses and other animals, and sweeping views all around gave us a unique setting in Spain to practice the yogic teachings. I highly recommend bringing groups here.Sarah Powers

“Best place I know to escape the troubles of the world and regenerate”
This was the fourth time I have been now. As ever, the setting is fabulous, the food health, appetising and copious, the yoga classes challenging but accessible, and always a warm welcome, it is my home-from-home. This time I stayed in a yurt, which was perfect at this time of year (end of May)— Jean PaulRead on Tripadvisor →
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! We had rave reviews from our students, I highly recommend it.Tiffany Cruickshank, USA
Suryalila is Sanskrit for “Cosmic Play of the Sun”
Suryalila is a composite of two Sanskrit words. Surya refers to the ancient sun god and lila means cosmic play (of the gods). Together the words mean “Cosmic Play of the Sun”. Suryalila is a fabulous yoga retreat centre located on the site of an ancient olive oil factory in the heart of Andalusia, Spain. The renovated Spanish Pension and olive plantation overlook rolling hills covered in shimmering fields of wheat and golden sunflowers. We offer a wide variety of accommodations, to suit all budgets, from glamping in the olive grove, to deluxe double rooms with private bathrooms. Come experience the unparalleled magic of Suryalila!
The retreat centre is so beautifully located, you think you are in the setting of “The Alchemist”, working towards your dreams!”
