Soul and Surf:
SURF AND YOGA RETREAT
Soul and Surf is located near Ahangama, on the South Coast of Sri Lanka. These guys provide a beautiful bespoke experience in a lush jungle location. Soul and Surf offers a well rounded trip including yoga, surfing, and time to escape from the daily grind and relax into zen-mode. This is the perfect place for the sole traveller, a couple of friends, or the romantic getaway. Being near the southern tip of Sri Lanka, there are waves year round. In the peak season of November to May there are plenty of sunny days and cleaner waves, but also a few more people in the water. The quieter season is May to November, however there is the occasional tropical shower and wilder seas. Basically, you’re in for a good time year-round!

Once in Sri Lanka you will usually opt for either the South or East Coast. The South Coast is easily accessible by local train, bus, car or operator pickup. The East Coast is also accessible by train (some of which go through the center of the island with unbelievable scenery and some great stop offs on the way), buses, cars and some operator pickup options.

Soul & Surf does what it says on the tin! I left feeling rejuvenated and soul fed after a week of surfing, yoga, amazing food, warm sunshine, warm sea and warm people. I was met with an openness that made me feel immediately at home both by the wonderful staff, the local surf instructors and the other guests. I booked the 3 surf lessons and 6 yoga sessions and was up on my board on the first day undoubtedly due to the brilliant surfing team. The level of support they provide,both technically and in moral support, was above and beyond my expectations. From the first lesson, going through everything in detail to getting me out past the narly waves and sticking with me offering verbal and physical support they were just brilliant. The rooms are spotless and lovely, the food is amazing and the free mineral water is a great bonus. Thanks for an amazing time. The hard part was leaving!
What a little paradise! I am so grateful I could be at Soul&Surf in Sri Lanka! Massive thank you to everyone who made this holiday one of the best holidays I have ever had, I hope I can come back!
This is the type of experience that everyone should try! They offer the perfect combination!
Yoga + balanced food + amazing surf classes and tips + chill at the pool and most important their staff were just GREAT! They make you fill home and very special!
Soul and Surf is the best. The people are fantastic, from front of house, making you feel so welcome, to the great yoga teachers offering a variety of challenging but fun classes and the ridiculously supportive and encouraging surf instructors. I can’t imagine a better holiday. There’s movie nights twice a week, a great food place and communal breakfasts, where everyone sits and has a good old chinwag. I travelled solo, which can sometimes be a bit daunting, but not at Soul and Surf, everyone is so great! I’m trying to plan a way to come back already!
