About Suryalila Retreat Centre

Our rural hotel is a warm and welcoming yoga centre, a home away from home, nestled serenely in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema, in the province of Cadiz, Spain. Expect to be surrounded by fields of sunflowers (when in bloom!) and sweeping vistas of mountains and lakes in our little corner of Europe.

Suryalila Yoga Hotel
Accommodation

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”.

It is also home to Danyadara, a non-profit educational permaculture farming project that is building a food forest and growing vegetables on the land. Weekly tours of the project are offered.
