Karma Surf Retreat Algarve Villa is a great place for a relaxing, fun but also active holiday. Nice location with beautiful pool, lovely rooms and good food. The yoga by Jenny and Igor is adapted to the needs of the group and really good after a day of surfing. And the surf instructors are fun, good teachers and very patient.... More

It's just all made with brain and lots of love: the accommodation, breakfast, lunch, the yoga and the funny surf lessons. Thanks to Jens and Timo, Jessica, Silvia, Annett and Leonor but also Luis and Rogerio I just had one unforgettable week which gave me plenty of power and good energy. Just on like this, guys! See you soon:)

I had the pleasure of being here in early April. The owners, Timo and Janz share a dream of really creating a special place for people to truly retreat. They balance the activities of Surfing and Yoga with downtime well, and make sure you have space and time to truely relax. For me I became sore for a couple of... More

I went to Karma with two girlfriends and we stayed in the cottage. We had an incredible week of yoga and surfing (especially as relative novices)! Jens and Timo were fabulous hosts and the villa was tranquil and beautiful. We came back relaxed and ready to carry on with the yoga (surfing sadly isn't possible in London!). There was a... More

After last year's succes we decided to return to Karma Surf Retreat for a second time. It felt like coming home! Jens and Timo, together with the girls made our stay a bliss. Great food, great company and great fun! Annet and Silvia's yogalessons were perfect (namaste!) and the instructions of Luis and Co. made our surfing skills improve enormously.... More

I travelled to a lot of places over the world, but my first 'alone-trip' in Europe was one of the most special ones! The hosts, the group, the food, the yoga(teachers), the surf, the surroundings, everything was just AMAZING! I truely reccomend you to visit this place when you have the opportunity. I will assure, you will come back home... More

Last week would always be associated with something so rejuvenating and beautiful that I don't think I will ever forget my first ever trip to surf&yoga retreat. It is not advertised Bounty chocolate commercial - it is so much more. Rocking in the hammock listening to Ben Howard after a good day of surfing, drifting away in a snooze before... More
