Soul & Surf Sri Lanka. Nov 2014

8th to the 29th November 2014.
Limited to 10 guests per week
Contact us at enquiries@soulandsurf.com to book your place.
Retreat details coming soon for February 2015.

__________________________________________

After such an amazing month long Pop-Up in February 2014 in we’ve decided to add another one to the calendar this November. A small team are hopping across to Sri Lanka from home in Kerala, India to host a smaller, luxury, surf & yoga retreat in a really stunning, secluded lakeside villa within minutes of the SW coast of Sri Lanka and it’s myriad of surf breaks for all levels.

Each morning and evening – to avoid the wind – we’ll jump in one of our comfy A/C vans and take a group to one of the numerous surf breaks in the area – from the beginners & long-boarders heaven at Weligama or the peakier Kabalana to the more challenging reefs of The Rock, Rams Right, Plantations, Madiya or the mellower Mirissa or Lazy Lefts. In between we’ll squeeze in a daily surfer-focused yoga session on our shady veranda overlooking Kogalla lake whilst looking forward to a relaxed evening of really good food, drinks and a chat as the sun goes down.

This is an all inclusive trip, so from the moment you get on the plane you can switch off the brain and let us take care of everything else. We’ll have a core Soul & Surf team on hand the whole time, plus a team of 5 local staff to look after your every need… well, perhaps not every need!

Whilst you’re in this neck of the woods why not combine a week in Sri Lanka with a week at Soul & Surf in Kerala, India. We’ll even do you a 10% discount if you decide to do both. Contact us at enquiries@soulandsurf.com to arrange.

From £650 (that’s about $990 / €760) per person per week.
Please contact us at enquiries@soulandsurf.com for all Sri Lanka booking enquiries and questions. We will email you back to finalise the booking.

Travel
There’s no real cheapies in terms of flights as there’s no package tours to Sri Lanka.
Flights from the UK and Europe’s other main hub airports tend to be in the £450-£650 (€520-€750)range per person, the main airlines are Sri Lankan the gulf-based airlines: Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, etc. and some Indian airlines like Jet & Air India (but don’t fly them, they’re truly awful!).
From the USA it’s a big leap across the Atlantic changing in the Gulf for as low as $850 on Emirates, Qatar and even Turkish Airlines if you’re East Coast… more the further west you’re coming from.
From Australia flights tend to go via Singapore or KL. We found flights for under AUD$1000 but some of those asian budget airlines might get you there cheaper, but they’re confusing to work out!

We tend to browse both Skyscanner & Kayak to get the full picture as they seem to offer different deals from different airlines.
