I was a week in the beach lodge and it was just wonderful. Even the contact before arrival was super helpful and all questions were answered! The team there (management, surf instructor, yoga instructor and photographer) were fantastic! And the food was a dream. The whole team at the beach lodge made the stay perfect. I can only recommend.

After spending one week in this amazing Surf and Yoga Camp I can highly recommend it. Not only because you can meet an awesome team who will accompany you during your stay,but also meet other people from different countries; so its perfect for people who travel alone. The surf and Yoga classes can be also taken part by beginners, instructors will help you improve your skills. Your day is structured through your whole stay, Sri Lankan food is served which was really delicious, even diets are taken into account. So if you are searching for a chilled and on the other hand sporty experience you should definitely try Surf Spirit out!

If you're looking for a cool Surfcamp, with attention to detail, you're at the right place! I spent 3 Weeks in the beachlodge in January. After my first experience in the Jungle Lodge 3 Years ago, i came back to enjoy it again. We went surfguiding every morning to a great secret Reefbreak. The bay itself with the beachbreak was as well really fun on many days with enough swell. The room with the sea view is extremly nice! Its super clean and the house-keeping and kitchen team is great! The Food is a good mix of srilanka's traditional food, but you get good variety with a pizza or a burger sometimes. To eat vegetarian or vegan is absolutly no problem. The Surf Spirit Team, Teacher, Manager are soo lovely caring about everyone! I would heartily recommend the stay to anyone.

This mark is not for the place itself, but for surf school. One of the teachers tried to explain me in a very bad words where I’m allowed and where not to surf, while he is at “his spot” to teach people. He hit my board few times and said (with really bad words) that he does’t like white people. After that he tried to explain me why he did like that, and said that it is because of the safety. But the main argument was that that is his spot and he doesn’t want to go to any other place. One more detail: I’ve been at that spot before he came with his students.

Hey mate, we do not run a surf school & are easy going with sharing the beach. As we have European and Local coaches i am sure we would never say "we do not like white people". We are really open for feedback and criticism but i think you reported the wrong company. Have a good day! Your Surf Spirit Team

1 point for the surf coaching, instructors gave good inputs which helped a lot. 1 point for the yoga. The classes in the morning were energizing and yin practice great for stretching in the evenings. 1 point for the local staff and the food at dinner. It was very tasty and had many vegan options. Breakfast was ok, but most options were sweet. 0 points for the overall concept which was not my style. You get 1 surf class for about 90 min. You can surf on your own - if you are lucky, there are enough surf boards. You get theory classes everyday, also if you experienced. However, I really missed theory about "how to behave in the waves > do not snake in, etc"... Would have been useful information for some people. The beach is about 10 min drive away (you are taken there by camp-bus) and you spend a lot of time of waiting until everyone is ready... 0 points for my room. You pay for a single option and end up in a room with two single beds. If you travel with friends or anyways want to share a room with others, this is ok. But I expected something else when paying extra for a single room. However, I am sure you can have a great time.

Hey many thanks for the review, we always take the feedback seriously so we can improve :) First of all we are really happy you liked the Surf Coaching, the yoga classes in the mornings and in the evening and the food :) You are right, for the free surf we (next to the lessons) we have been lacking a few boards. We already purchased more boards and are even looking into adding more boards to the quiver :) About the room: In case of booking a single Room you normally should get a room including one double room. We are really sorry this was not the case during your stay. We apologise for this mistake. Other than that we are glad to hear you have been happy with the surf lessons, the yoga sessions and the food. Have a great day. Your Surf Spirit Team

We spent an amazing week in the beautiful beach lodge. Every morning and afternoon we had a yoga class on the rooftop with a beautiful view over the bay. The beach and surf spot is directly in front of the terrace. We were treated with healthy and yummy food for breakfast, with smoothie bowls, lunch and dinner every day. The hole team was so lovely, we had lots of good conversations and funny evenings. I couldn’t imagine how to spent my time in Sri Lanka better. It was really hard to leave!

Me and my friends spent one amazing week at the Surfspirit Beach Lodge! There you get the chance to take part in two yogaclasses a day and lots of surfing classes, too. The instructors are the nicest people on earth and after just one week you can call them your friends and really do not want to leave at all! It has been one of the best weeks in my entire life! Xo

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!
