This location, staff, and schedule of activities is everything you could ever ask for in a surf and yoga camp. I traveled alone and made so many friends with amazing women that just enhanced my self exploration and learning. I can't recommend it enough - go for yourself and take a break to see what life is really about!

My mom and I booked this trip for my college graduation gift and it was more than I ever expected. We did the week yoga retreat with the adventure package. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Anamaya, the staff, and the experience. Everyone makes you feel right at home. The food and views are unreal!! I already... More

I can not say enough about this wonderful place. I was traveling by myself and picked this resort based on other trip advisor reviews, and I was not disappointed. All the rooms are unique (I stayed in the Ganesh cabin, which was amazing,) and the staff becomes like family. The food is amazing and the yoga decks have the most... More

The staff, the location, the food, the accommodations - everything about this place is incredible. This is my second time here - I visited first for a one week yoga retreat, and came back for a four week teacher training. The experience was consistently incredible. I've stayed in both the Gaia House and Garuda's Nest (the treehouse). The cleaning staff... More

I just returned from a month at the Anamaya resort. The staff there is truly incredible. Hugs to Laura, Grettel, Papin and all the cleaning ladies who were so sweet and ready with a hug (or chocolate) if we needed it. The staff keeps everything immaculate and the grounds are well maintained. So many varieties of birds and plants and... More

Anamaya is truly a magical place. I'm a seasoned traveler, and it's rare that I come back from a vacation feeling 10 years younger! Antoine and Pamela were AMAZING teachers who guided us through our twice daily yoga practices with joy and laughter. I returned to "life" refreshed and committed to a daily yoga practice. While at Anamaya for only... More

We chose Anamaya for the Yoga & Surf package and based on the great reviews. Everyone was right! The resort was cozy but had lots of nice amenities. It was truly welcoming and like a home away from home. Because there weren’t a lot of rooms, it had a very intimate, community feel. We met new people, got to know... More

Amazing Yoga Retreat with yoga instructors Pamela & Antoine from Canada. Yoga twice daily on the breath-taking yoga deck was incredible. Truly enjoyed the infinity salt-water pool, it was very difficult to leave! Great food (farm-to-table), amazing yoga, incredible pool, and wonderful/friendly staff. Dry season in April with very little foliage, would be interesting to go back when everything is... More
