A boutique hotel positioned on a dreamy, secluded little waterfront cove in Ahangama. Hidden from the road, the beach is dotted with palm trees, and there is a nice easy wave right out front. Right there! We can walk to it, what a treat. In fact, if the hotel was any closer to the ocean, it’d be a boat.

Where to begin! An unforgettable week at Soul and Surf. I chose to stay at the Tekanda Lodge which is part of the Soul and Surf company. It is their newest addition. It was beautiful. The views are breath taking, the staff are so kind and friendly and always so helpful. They go out of their way to help you and make you feel so welcome and at ease. The sunshine food is absolutely delicious. Tasty, healthy and such a variety at every meal. I chose the yoga package for my stay and it was the best decision. The teachers are very special. They are understanding, passionate and inspiring. The flexibility of Soul and Surf meant I could also try the surfing one day. The massage treatments with Lara were a whole new level. I met friends for life during my stay. I highly highly recommend Soul and Surf and Tekanda Lodge. I can’t wait to come back!

I had the most amazing 10-day stay with Soul & Surf in Sri Lanka - without echoing all the previous reviewers, suffice it to say that it was the perfect mix of time in the water with the fantastic S&S surf coaches, time to switch off at the S&S property located at the top of a plantation with stunning views overlooking the lush jungle, excellently coached yoga sessions, and a team that went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best possible time. I had a blast and can't wait to come back :)

It felt like a bit of a dice roll to go to Soul & Surf. I had some holiday to use up, fancied learning how to surf (I was a complete beginner), and had no other reason to go to Sri Lanka. But it was a perfect holiday - just the right balance of time to chill, and no time to be bored. Everything was planned and laid out for us, so you don't need to think. It was a cool group of travellers with a sense of adventure in common but otherwise from different countries / age brackets / genders / experiences. Another thing I hadn't known to look forward to - the food!! It was delicious. Thanks to every single member of staff who created the perfect experience for us all

I am at a loss as to how to describe S&S without sounding like I am echoing what every other reviewer has already said, be that as it may, it needs to be said again - S&S is unbelievably amazing. It is quite difficult to decide on what my favourite part was - the expertly designed rooms and common areas, the friendly staff, delicious food or the classes and delightful instructors? The fact that I have to debate this tells you all you need to know about what a wonderful experience it is to stay one week at S&S. When prepping for this review, I was quite surprised that there are actually some out there with negative things to say about S&S. I guess the one difference between me and those people is that I am right and they are wrong. My wife and I had a blast and truly hope to not only go back to S&S in Sri Lanka but hopefully be lucky enough to visit their other locations soon.

I don’t say that lightly, but this was amazing. Rooms were clean, comfortable spacious and the bathrooms were great. Some of the best surf instruction I have ever received. The fact it’s a fixed time retreat allows them to give loads of extra lessons like the theory of surfing, video analysis which makes a Huge difference. Food is stunning, exactly what you would expect from a retreat. Few things have been as enjoyable as doing yoga in the morning overlooking the jungle. The founders, Hayley and Raf go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and the attention to detail is brilliant. I could not recommend this place more and am counting down the days until I go back!

Really really great experience for surf and yoga, as well as the wonderful staff and beautiful settings! There has been some concerns with travelling to Sri Lanka following the attacks but we felt very safe.

My husband, 2 kids and I stayed in Awimbawei villa near Soul and Surf this Christmas for 5 nights and had the most wonderful time. The villa is decorated beautifully, the pool fantastic, aircon much appreciated for aclimatising tired children and we just LOVED the outdoor bathroom aspects - so creatively done. Madu made delicious breakfasts ad kept the house all tidy for us which was such a treat and we loved the monkey jam! It was great to be able to walk to Soul and Surf for other meals and hop in a tuk tuk to go further afield. Ellis gave us a superb Surf lesson and Blain was excellent at answering my questions and even sorted us a welcome hamper. His english was excellent so it made it so easy. We all loved the jungle setting, just beautiful - plus the monkeys, kumudu dragons and giant frogs were a huge bonus for the kids. A very special trip for my 40th birthday. I would move in tomorrow if i could!

A friend and I stayed at Soul and surf for a week at the start of January. It was a perfect week of activity and relaxation. The surf instruction by Ellis was thorough but we were also in the sea on the first day, giving it a go! There were theory, pool and video analysis sessions which complemented perfectly. The yoga with Hayley (and Rosie) on the days off was a great way to stretch between surf sessions. I loved watching monkeys fly through the trees during the morning yoga! The food and the service was fantastic!! Sustenance to keep us going. The morning SUP was amazing, peaceful and beautiful, as well as the cooking demonstration with Aruna (just waiting for you to send the recipes so I can recreate at home!!). Thank you again for a fantastic week. I would love to come back to Sri Lanka, but also Kerala or Portugal!

I had high expectations of S&S Sri Lanka, having had a pretty special time at their place in Kerala exactly a year beforehand. My expectations were blown out of the park - it was hands down the highlight of my month in Sri Lanka. The surf instruction was great, both in and out of the water - I've had a few surf lessons in my time, and finally felt that some of the theory and practice was starting to click together. Ellis and Jay delivered a perfectly gauged combination of encouragement with a side order of tough love when it was needed! The yoga was brilliant too - the ideal balance of challenge and restoration, and Hayley just knew exactly what we needed on any given day. If I could go to her classes every day back home I would. Hayley is also the most fab "Head of Vibes" (villa host) you could imagine - even lending a couple of us her clothes so we could get them copied by a local tailor! Everything else was incredible too - the food, the rooms and the whole villa, all the wonderful wonderful staff. As a solo traveller I particularly loved the villa set-up and how all meals are communal so you get to know all the amazing people you're sharing the week with - we were a tight-knit group from the get-go. This place is fab. Book now - I guarantee you will thank yourself for it.

What a glowing review to read Bethan. It was so lovely to bump into you over here as well as Kerala. I hope we get to meet again soon! Hope you're enjoying the jumpsuits still? May be a little bit of layering is needed of there in blighty huh? Sending love from the tropics, Hayley x

We had an amazing week at Soul & Surf. Very friendly staff, comprehensive surf instruction, plenty of yoga designed to complement the surfing, and great food. Would definitely recommend this to any salty yogis out there (salty in a good way!).
