I had an amazing week in Karma Surf at SUP&Yoga retreat. Everything (the villa, sceneries around, the staff, food, likeminded people and programme, ...) was absolutely perfect. The concept was brilliant: everything was carefully planned and guests don´t have to worry about anything. It felt like being in luxury villa and at home at the same time. There was a... More

Overall the experience was good, I enjoyed the activities and the relaxed programme. The people were friendly and the hosts (Jessie) were mostly at hand to offer recommendations. However, the water-based activities are run by a partner and not by Karma. This meant that these could be quite poorly organised in terms of transportation and timings. The classes were shorter...

Last year my daughter and I went to Karma for the first time and fell in love with the place, the team, the teachers and their philosophy. So it was inevitbale that we'd go again. This year, I travelled solo and the whole experience was just as special. I felt taken care of, met some like minded people, had such... More

I actually don't have anything negative to say about my stay at the karma surf retreat except I wish it was longer. The whole team went over and above what I expected, providing travel arrangements and arranging activities according to when you want them and there was no pressure to do everything. Jessi is pretty much on hand 24 hours... More

Staying with Karma Surf Retreat was magical. You would feel love & care from first till last moment of your stay. Plus the guys & girls running the retreat, Jens, Timo, Aline and Jessica were very interesting people and probably attract like-minded visitors so the group I stayed with was a real treat, engaging & fun.
