Yoga Retreat Facilities
At Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre, we endeavour to make your experience as comfortable as possible. We offer two of the most beautiful and spacious Yoga halls in Europe, a dedicated massage room with skilled massage therapists, and many gorgeous communal spaces like the pool, dining and living areas to just relax and hang out in. Our Yoga retreat facilities also include WiFi, office supplies and anything else you might need during your stay.
The Om Dome – Our Magnificent Yoga Hall
It was always part of Vidya’s dream to create the most magnificent Yoga Hall in Europe. The breathtaking Om Dome is the realisation of that dream. In the Om Dome there is a massive bay window overlooking one of our best views of beautiful rolling hills and a ruined convent. The Dome can hold 50 yogis very comfortably. It is also a perfect space for conferences and concerts. The Dome has underfloor heating, air-conditioning, a state of the art sound system, atmospheric lighting and a full set of Yoga props, including Manduka Pro mats, backjack chairs, bolsters, cork blocks, blankets and straps.

Ganesha Yoga Shala is upstairs in the main house. It is a beautiful Yoga hall with a wood and beam ceiling and wood floors. It has windows on both sides which allow for plenty of light and air flow. There is a balcony attached to the shala with beautiful views, and there is also a small alcove which contains shelves to house the Yoga props. We have plenty of mats, blankets, straps, blocks, sand bags and eye pillows. There is also a mezzanine outside the shala with a couple of couches. This Yoga hall holds up to 30 students comfortably.

We produce our own olives and olive oil as well as many of our own fruits and veggies. Everything we grow is organic; no chemicals or fertilisers are used. We have many fruit trees including figs, peaches, pears, apricots, pomegranates, apples, and grapes. In the cooler months we like to grow plenty of greens, including kale and different varieties of cabbage and lettuce. In summer we have an abundance of heritage tomatoes. Our organic free-range eggs come from our own happy chickens. Since we are vegetarian, our birds have long and happy lives!
Relax and rejuvenate in our delicious salt water pool. The pool is set amidst stunning vistas of the beautiful Spanish countryside. It has a lovely covered terrace with dappled light which offers shade from the hottest part of the day. You can also choose to sun yourself poolside on our wooden sun-beds in the full sunshine. Everyone is provided with a large bath-sheet on arrival. Please shower before entering the pool. There is a shower beside the pool for this purpose.
Shakti Boutique: Our Yoga Shop
Our beautiful Shakti Boutique is housed downstairs in Casa Ananda (the tower house). You will be informed of store opening times for your group. The boutique sells bath and beauty supplies, so you don’t need to worry about carrying shampoo and soap when you come to Suryalila. We also sell a wide range of beautiful Yoga clothes and leisure wear, as well as gifts, cards, books and jewellery. Many of the items for sale in the shop were sourced in Asia and we have an eclectic collection of beautiful treasures from around the world.
