I stayed at the Karma Surf Retreat in October 2016 and would recommend it, especially if you want to learn or practice German. I'm being somewhat sarcastic :) The resort hosted 15-16 people when I was there, and all but one other spoke German. Great effort was made to include us English-speakers (Both guests & staff were all so nice!);...

Where to start! This holiday was the best decision I took in my life. First time solo traveller and I never felt so good. Karma is just an amazing experience with amazing genuine people. Jessica welcomed us like a friend with her shinning personality. The program based on Yoga and surfing was just perfect! I loved Manon and Filipa as...

I was not entirely sure what to expect form this holiday and had been (with other companies) to similar breaks in Morocco - however I would strongly recommend this company and this break, if you are looking for a relaxing time in a lovely location. The rooms were extremely nice and the staff could not do enough for you /...

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...

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.
