It was a perfect week, with great food, yoga and surf, in a very cool place. The staff was very accommodating and really professional, starting with the lovely yoga and surf teachers, and finishing with the chefs. Will probably return. Definitely recommend.

I've just spent a week on a Yoga Surf Retreat at Villa Mandala, and had a wonderful time. The yoga classes and instructors were excellent, and I really enjoyed trying some new things. The surf instructors were also excellent, I am basically a beginner, but having witnessed surf lessons in the UK before, there is really no comparison - the... More

My partner and I stayed for three nights at Villa Mandala and absolutely loved it here. The Villa is everything you could hope for - peaceful, relaxed, comfortable, stylish, a great place to hang out and read, or chat, play games etc after a long day in the sea. The hosts (we had Karim and Jen) are charming and just... More

Great yoga teachers, amazing food, brilliant organisation and the surfing was fantastic. You really don't have to think about anything except yoga, surfing and eating. Becky and Jen were great hosts and have an excellent yoga programme in place - vinyasa flow in the mornings and restorative in the evenings. Red and Youness were extremely thorough in their surf lessons... More

I went for a week's yoga and surfing, found a great group of guests, and enjoyed it from start to finish. The rooms are spotless - the sea maybe a spot or two..... But that's the only grumble of an other wise perfect relaxing week.

This was the first holiday of its type I've been on and, like another recent reviewer, I could probably write pages about how good it was, but I'd be scared of not doing it justice. I was on the surf/yoga retreat based at Villa Mandala (whilst accommodation for the company's other more 'surf-based' packages is provided at other addresses a... More

Go if you like - 1) retreat - rustic, away from tourist commercialisation, and tucked on a beach in a small coastal town; 2) up to 2 yoga sessions (2 hrs + 1.5 hrs) daily - Becky and Jenn were lovely instructors and organised a very well-thought through itinerary that offered great variety while catering for various experience levels (was...

It was such a pleasure to spend this week with everyone of our group 9lucky dip you might say) and I have to say everyone who has looked after us, the chefs, the ladies keeping the villa nice and tidy, all the surf instructors and in some cases drivers and of course Becky and Jen the yoga teachers have done...
