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.

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!
