We had an amazing day out. It was perfect with absolutely delicious meals, clean pool, the quiet surroundings with squirrels running around n friendly staff. Even the coffee was just out of this world! (They offered us a day package for LKR 2500 pp, included a welcome drink (a fresh juice!), lunch, tea/coffee) Highly recommend for families & friends!

We went over there with few of our friends and we fell in love with the place at first sight. It was very calm & quiet place with very soothing environment and cool breeze. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. Food was superb too, all the foods and drinks they gave us were super delicious. Place was clean and the bedrooms and bathrooms are also great with open concept. It is a place I will go again and recommend to everyone.

I had hoped to enjoy a week of convenient surfing within a comfortable setting, and did so, but my expectations were also totally surpassed. The villa is a beautiful and tranquil hideaway, which feels safe, secluded and at one with the natural beauty of its surroundings. The surf instructors were thorough, fun, dedicated (6am extra sessions for those keen/experienced enough) and eagle-eyed in the water. Everyone developed their skills over the course of the week. The yoga was magnificent - with our teacher creating a wonderful atmosphere and treating us to a varied, challenging and spiritual approach. Food was healthy and well-presented. Rooms were clean and thoughtfully maintained. Extras like photos/souvenirs were modestly priced and good value for money (as was the entire package). The whole place runs like a slick operation, because it has been so carefully crafted and managed. This was an absolutely blissful holiday. I will be back!

This was by far our best surfcamp experience! We stayed at surf spirit twice and can highly recommend it! The surf villa is amazing (stylish, tasteful yet comfy, calming, super clean and spacious, rooms are amazing, especially the open air bathrooms!). But what made our experience outstanding was the staff! Everyone was highly professional and made us feel at home at the same time. The surf lessons were perfectly structured and organized, Alex is an amazing surf instructor! We really could improve our surfskills. (We visited surfcamps in Morocco and Portugal and surf Spirit in Sri Lanka was by far the best!). Great quality and variation of surf equipment (from various softtops to mini malibus and also short boards). You could use the boards outside the surf lessons too! We also enjoyed yoga a lot (great yoga teachers for unexperienced as well as experienced yogis, and the most stunning yoga room planted in the middle of nature). The food is delicious and within a year they also enlarged their lunch, super awesome to refuel between surf sessions! Our first stay was already wonderful and the second stay was simply perfect! You could really tell that the owners Nils and Dana put all their heart into this surfcamp! We loved it and highly recommend going there!!!! Bianca and Ludwig, Austria

Didn’t know what to expect from a retreat and never been to SriLanka before, but from the moment we arrived at Surf Spirit we were greeted like old friends by the host Nici who looked after us the whole trip!! It was an amazingly beautiful place we met some amazing people from around the world and local. Our surf teacher Marc was great, fun and patient. I can not fault the beauty and the relaxing setting, the food was great with so much Vegan options and the Yoga sessions were perfect. I only wish we stayed longer!!! Thank you Surf Spirit!
