The Soul & Surf Way
We hope you know that we’ll deliver a stay which is informal enough for you to feel relaxed and at home but with enough organisation and structure to provide as much or as little for you to do as you fancy. We’ve been honing our skills at this kind of thing for years in Kerala, Sri Lanka, Portugal and on Pop-Ups around the world.
We surf stunning palm-fringed beaches, and reefs in and around Ahangama each morning and afternoon. We put ourselves back together with meditation classes, massage and yoga classes each day. We eat healthy, hearty sunshine food to fuel busy bodies. But above all of that it’s actually the people – both our guests and the families that make up our Soul & Surf team – that make it truly special.
We’re not a serious, pious yoga & meditation retreat or a macho, strict-regimented activity holiday, or a grotty bunk-bed surf camp. Do as little or as much as you want to, no pressure – some surf and spend the rest of the day hanging out, having coffees, chats and putting the world to rights; some just come for the yoga, meditation or massage; some surf as much as they possibly can; some just come to do nothing, hang out, eat cake, drink coolers, sunbathe and enjoy the welcoming community Soul & Surf vibe.

Bringing The Kids?
We very much welcome families coming to stay with us and do what we can to make it affordable and workable with the kids. But we have to be realistic too, we’ve got a small number of rooms so we need to get income from them when they’re being used. So if we can add extra beds or a cot to your room we can keep things very reasonable, if the kids need their own room we have to charge the normal rate.
We’re not allowed to recommend or offer baby-sitting or childcare as a service because our UK insurers advise us not to as the local mums from the village aren’t qualified, registered or insured. But we can introduce you to some of the Sri Lankan ladies from the local area. If you feel comfortable you can arrange child-care, whilst you surf or practice yoga, directly with them at very reasonable rates.
We love the kids to join in with whatever we can reasonably allow them to do. Surfing is an inherently dangerous activity so we have to have some limitations. Talk to the yoga teacher when you arrive if you’d like your kids to try yoga. It has the be at the yoga teachers discretion and not to the detriment of our other yogis experience. There’s plenty of other stuff we can fully allow the kids to get involved with.
