The Surya Retreat

About The Retreat

Dreaming of some you time? We’ve got you. The Surya Retreat is here to provide you with a space to reconnect, unwind & press pause on your routines from home. Let go of any stressors, focus on you and take a well deserved dose of vitamin sunshine. We’ve designed our days on retreat with the intention that you will find the shift that you need to return home rested, uplifted and with your sparkle restored. We have in store for you, long sun kissed days & relaxed balmy evenings all infused with yoga practices, beautiful meals & connecting to like minded souls. Nestled between the mountains & the mediterranean sea, in the beautiful village of Ojen, Surya Guesthouse, our home for 4 nights has been recently refurbished to not only highlight the charm of the area, but to bring a little slice of luxury into your stay. Full of open spaces & sun drenched corners, the house is a truly magical place for all who stay there. The rooftop area will allow us the perfect space to flow together & for you to deepen your yoga practice. And it will of course provide space for lots of relaxing by the pool, under the sun & an amazing dining area for our meals together with views of the Andalucian mountains. Whether you are a beginner & looking to explore yoga further or already have a practice that you are looking to deepen, this is the retreat for you. Perfect for both solo travellers and those of you looking to take a trip with a friend. Our main priority is to create the warmest & most welcoming of environments so that you can truly let go, unwind & feel comfortable as your most authentic self.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be any extra costs during the retreat?

All the activities and transport during the retreat are free. You won't incur any extra costs other than your airport transfers and if you fancy indulging in a massage. We have a masseuse who can come to the house if you would like this (approx 70 euros). Of course you're welcome to shop, cafe hop etc when we're out of the house but we don't pay for those bits :)

Do I need to bring anything?

All mats and all other yoga equipment is provided so you don't need to bring anything unless you choose to bring your own mat. We try to limit single use plastic, so would recommend bringing a water bottle for our time out of the house. Bringing a journal/notebook & pen is always a nice idea, we'll have little journal prompts for each day (optional). And of course a book, nothing beats relaxing in the sun with a good read! The temperature this time of year is in the high 20's so be sure to pack an SPF, light breathable clothing, swimwear, clothes for your yoga practice & a warmer layer/shawl for sunrises & in the evening. For our waterfall hike, trainers will be fine unless you prefer walking boots.

Do I need travel insurance?

Travel insurance is always a good idea, due to our cancellation policy we can't offer any refund if there were to be any problems/delays with your flight or airline. We encourage you to purchase trip cancellation insurance in order that your trip fees will be covered should you or your family have a medical problem prior to your trip or while on the trip. Trip insurance should also be purchased to cover medical expenses in the event you have an accident while on the retreat. Most travel insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation.

I'm nervous about coming solo, will everyone be travelling with friends?

Not at all! A lot of people come to our retreats solo, because of the smaller group numbers everyone bonds really quickly and you leave feeling like you've known everyone for ages. A lot of people stay in touch which is beautiful. The biggest part of our ethos is creating a welcoming, safe & warm space so you can feel totally at ease.




November 2022

Ella and Nat offer a beautiful space laced with a blend of warmth and compassion and joy. The nature of Surya Retreat is relaxed and open. Outside of the itinerary you are given ample free time, and the option to relax or join in.There is no expectation to be or act a certain way.You are there purely to benefit from the healing powers of yoga, and soak up the sun.You're made to feel so at home and I couldn't recommend it enough. I can’t wait to return to see what lies in store for me this year!



October 2022

Ellas ability to create a relaxed and welcoming environment was clear from the beginning. Straight away I started to feel the stresses of the previous months just melt away. She not only guides you through classes with clear instruction but she is attentive and light and stops you feeling self conscious. Her smile, her warm energy and natural glow is so uplifting, and created such a warm welcoming atmosphere, I felt so able to be myself instantly. I can't wait to join in on her future ventures.



July 2022

I had a fantastic time on my first retreat Ella, Jess and Nat created such an amazing space for us to come to and open up. The sunrise yoga was truly beautiful overlooking the mountains and the sunset sound baths were so relaxing. I liked the chilled schedule and that I didn’t have to participate in an activity if I felt like I wanted to relax and the food was incredible! My only wish is that I could have stayed for longer!
