I honestly did some of my best work this year while staying at Suryalila. The space and chilled out atmosphere allowed me to be more creative and more productive! Being there has reminded me of the importance of self care. In becoming more grounded and better connected to myself, I was able to better serve my clients.

Suryalila Extended Stay: The details
We have a choice of beautiful boutique accommodations on offer depending on your budget and mood. Live with others in our shared Cortijo Casas, get back to nature in an Eco Casa or enjoy a touch of luxury in our Ananda Lakshmi Suite.
Enjoy freshly prepared healthy organic vegetarian meals lovingly made by our professional kitchen team. Using seasonal produce and ingredients grown on our own farm, this is food for the soul.
Nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park, Suryalila has been converted from an old olive mill into a peaceful rural sanctuary. A striking part of the natural beauty are the breathtaking vistas extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of expansiveness is uplifting.
We’re blessed with a stunning location in the heart of ‘real Spain’ close to local nature spots for hiking and forest bathing; Traditional whitewashed pueblo blancos for wine and tapas; Golden sand beaches for surfing and sundowners and the vibrant historical cities of Seville, Cadiz, and Ronda for culture. We’re served by major airports at Seville, Jerez and Malaga. Local bus routes run from the nearby towns of Prado del Rey and Villamartín.
Open 24 hours a day, take a rejuvenating dip in our refreshing saltwater pool whenever you fancy. The pool is flanked by sun loungers either in the shade or the full sun. There’s also a cooling shower to rinse off. A large bath sheet is provided on arrival.
Work and Relaxation
From shaded pagodas to poolside sun loungers, there are plenty of tempting spots dotted around the property to work, relax and soak up the sun. If you’re looking for a designated work space, you’ll find desks and break out area in our airy Saraswati cowork space converted from a meditation hall.

Our Suryalila Extended Stay was inspired by you
The idea for our Suryalila Extended Stay came about during the pandemic as more people were wanting to escape crowded cities for our tranquil sanctuary in nature. Now, we want to share this opportunity with all of you and have created our Suryalila Extended Stay experience with special discounted long-stay prices for people like you who are looking for a refuge in paradise.
If you find yourself contemplating coming here to work, I’d say just do it! You really won’t regret it. Having been to Suryalila before, I knew how magical the place was, how close you are to nature and the sense of community you get as soon as you get through the door. I get to start my day with yoga, I eat delicious food and even make time for a cheeky lunchtime dip in the pool. As soon as I close my laptop, work finishes and I get to enjoy the simple life of yoga in southern Andalusia.

Remote working at Suryalila has been fantastic — it has been super-productive yet perfectly tranquil! I start every day with either a Yoga class or a swim in the pool, before I move to my workspace of choice.
If I have meetings and international calls, I spend lots of time in the co-working space. Some days I work from the hammocks in the shade or the Pagoda. And at the end of the day, it’s time for a cold beer and watching the sunset over the rolling hills.
Combining all of this with the mountains and adventures nearby, there’s really everything I need here to make it the perfect co-working space.

I’ve just returned from a period of remote working at Suryalila and can’t recommend it enough! I suddenly realised that ‘working from home’ meant I could be working anywhere and Suryalila was the perfect spot. The essentials are all taken care of with yoga in the morning and three healthy meals a day, leaving ample space to relax or to get down to work. The team are very accommodating of independent schedules, so that if you need to be flexible on meal times because of a call then that’s ok. And if you can’t make morning yoga then it’s no big deal because you can swim at anytime (24 hours a day!), find an empty shala for self practice, or take a walk in the rolling hills. I honestly did some of my best work this year while staying at Suryalila. The space and chilled out atmosphere allowed me to be more creative and more productive! I have returned feeling rejuvenated, despite working throughout, and am already planning a trip back. On a practical note, I am a Psychotherapist and so my work demands a private space, quite, and reliable internet for zoom sessions. Suryalila was able to provide all of these. Just be open about what’s needed for your specialist role when you book and the team will work with you to make it happen. Being there has reminded me of the importance of self care, in becoming more grounded and better connected to myself, I was able to better serve my clients.
