Started in 2011, Weligama Surf Yoga Retreat is located in the tropical paradise of south Sri Lanka.
We invite you to unwind, reconnect with nature, and challenge yourself on our all-inclusive yoga surf retreats based in our luxurious jungle villa in South Sri Lanka. All retreats include daily yoga and meditation, healthy organic vegetarian food made by an expert local chef, professional surf instruction at Weligama Beach (perfect for beginners), cooking classes, cultural immersion and travel days, and a “Giving It Back” program at a local community school.
The south coast of Sri Lanka offers countless surfing options from beginner-friendly beach breaks to challenging shallow reef breaks and rippable walls groomed by the reliable off-shore winds. With the friendly locals (some of whom will be your guides for your stay), relaxed surf culture and the bath warm water temperature of around 30 degrees, you will experience the very best that Sri Lanka has to offer surfers. With the short travel distances between break and locations our guiding and lessons can be tailored to your needs to ensure you are in the right place at the right time and score the best waves possible.
Wake up to the magical sounds of the jungle in our garden yoga studio. Morning classes are usually an invigorating flow, while evening classes are more relaxed and meditative.
For the surf lessons we use only the best local instructors. Packages include board rental as well as transport to the beach and back. Weligama beach is the perfect spot to ride your first wave, or hone your skills while working up to a more advanced wave. If you are already an experienced surfer, we can cater our retreats to take you to other nearby waves so you can have the most fun possible.
A mere minutes by Tuk Tuk away from Weligama and other world class beaches, our colonial villa is a truly unique place to stay. Enjoy the sunset while listening to the sounds of the jungle and waiting for the perfect picture of the wild peacocks that roam our grounds.
Rooms are comfortable and classic, with subtle artistic touches around every corner. All rooms come with A/C or just open the windows to let in the cool night air. It is truly a place that inspires creativity and imagination!
Our Chef Mahendra prepares delicious vegetarian Sri Lankan dishes with ingredients picked fresh from our garden. Chef Mahendra has cooked all over the world and spent most of his cooking career in London working at many fine establishments.
Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions as we can accommodate you!
Our retreats allow you to begin lifelong friendships with like-minded people. By sharing the entire immersive retreat experience together, strangers become friends who flow and grow together in Sri Lanka and hopefully stay in touch for years to come!
How We Give Back:
Each retreat features a very special opportunity to give back to the local community. We often work with local schools in need of supplies or other local NGOs. We also give back by employing as many local Sri Lankan staff as possible. Our chefs, surf instructors, and drivers are all knowledgeable locals who will be thrilled to show you some of their culture.
Located in the center of the south Sri Lanka surf scene, Weligama Beach is a paradise for new and experienced surfers alike. While the tourism scene is expanding, Weligama still has a great vibe with friendly locals who embrace visitors and love to show off their culture. With great healthy food, beautiful beaches, unlimited surfing in every direction, plus other activities like SUP trips, diving, wildlife safaris and so much yoga, Weligama is the perfect base for your Sri Lankan adventures!
Our Local Guides:
We use only local instructors for our surf lessons. These guys are super professional and really know how to show you a good time. They'll have you standing up and riding that wave in no time!
