Surya Retreat – Rejuvenating Yoga and Pilates in Fuerteventura
Join us year round at our Surya retreat, on the sun-blessed island of Fuerteventura, with epic sand dunes rolling down into the turquoise ocean, breathtaking white-sand beaches and dramatic volcanic sunsets. More than just a holiday, we are here to support you in your wellbeing journey, making you feel at ease from the moment you arrive.
Relax and revitalise at Surya, one of Europe’s leading yoga and pilates retreats in the Canary Islands, Spain. Stretch and strengthen your body and mind and bring yourself back into balance with a unique blend of yoga, pilates and meditation. Enjoy mouthwatering vegetarian meals, holistic massages and stunning sunsets over the volcanoes.
Our seven night yoga and Pilates retreats running every week from Saturday to Saturday at Surya are designed to help reduce stress, improve fitness and vitality and most importantly take time for you. Perfect for all levels from beginner to advanced practitioners, we are here to support you and your goals every step of the way. We also have a second retreat venue.
Yoga & Pilates
At the heart of the retreat programme at Surya is exceptional yoga and Pilates instruction by a team of international instructors who have a heartfelt and down-to-earth approach to wellbeing. Believing in the complementary nature of yoga and Pilates, we have crafted a program that inspires, challenges and motivates both beginner and experienced practitioner.
The diverse and full weekly schedule (over 21 classroom hours) is delivered at a pace that allows you to do it all and still have ample time for additional therapies and exploration, or be more selective and just relax– we know it’s your holiday, you decide. You can also develop your practice with a private class with our world-class instructors or add a surf course, join excursions and cycling trips. For relaxation, healing and pampering we include an hour massage in your programme, plus we have a team of experienced therapists offering complementary therapies such as ayurvedic consultations and reiki, holistic and sports massage and beauty treatments.
Our yoga instructors at Surya come from a variety of yoga backgrounds, including hatha yoga, yoga therapy, vinyasa flow, power yoga and Ashtanga. This wealth of knowledge teamed with the expertise of Master Pilates Instructor and co-founder of Azulfit, Jamie Isaac, mean you are in very safe hands.
All are passionate about their practice and are skilled practitioners and teachers. They are able to inspire and instil confidence in the complete beginner and help more advanced practitioners to develop and grow.
All meals at Surya retreat are vegetarian or vegan. Our resident nutritionist Jo Dombernowsky genuinely believes in the power of food to improve health, energy and general wellbeing. Using only the best ingredients, each meal is not only a chance to enjoy good food and good company, it’s a chance to learn about the benefits of nutritious eating.
After the morning session you will sit down to a delicious homemade brunch including fresh fruit salad, homemade marmalades, homemade bread, homemade yogurt, homemade muesli and homemade granola, a hot dish of the day (eggs, pancakes, porridge) and a choice of drinks including water, coffee, tea and herbal tea.
Five delicious and healthy evening meals are included within the cost of the course. The evening meals are bursting with flavour and completely in line with the retreat philosophy of providing vibrant, holistic food that guests are inspired to make back home.
Surya Retreat has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, beautifully decorated rooms from and lots of comfy chill-out areas. You can relax with a book in the garden, have a dip in the pool, chat with your fellow guests in the bright open lounge or Spanish courtyard or sit and enjoy the view to the sea from the terrace.
Offering different levels of accommodation to suit all budgets, we are sure to have the perfect place for you to lay your head. Careful thought has gone into every detail of the bedrooms and apartments on offer.
Surya Retreat has 5 rooms with double beds, 2 single private rooms and 6 twin rooms available, all of which are designed with your rest and comfort in mind.

What past guest have said
“Having visited Surya retreat 8 times I didn’t think that could improve but Surya goes beyond all my expectations; idyllic, restful, amazing food, beautiful people, pure bliss, hearts and kisses! Thank you to each and everyone of you to sharing this with me…I will be back.” Suzanna, UK
”I went to Surya retreat at a time in my life where I needed time to myself to reflect and heal. Their place was the perfect place to do that. It’s beautiful, peaceful and the combination of Yoga, Pilates, Reiki, massage, great company and delicious vegetarian food was just what I needed. I can’t wait to go back!.” Heida Reed (Star of BBC’s Poldark)
”I loved my week at Surya retreat. It was my first yoga retreat and I didn’t know what to expect. I have to say it exceeded my expectations. Though a bit out of the way, the retreat itself was very nice. It was clean and comfortable. What I love most by far was the teachers and staff. The teachers are so patient and very experienced. They guided us through different types of yoga, pilates and meditations. I learned a lot and also felt I was well taken care of. The staff was so warm and tried to accommodate our needs with a smile. Food, oh the food there was heaven. As a meat eater, I was skeptical about the two vegan and vegetarian daily meal plan. However, as soon as I tasted the first meal, I didn’t want any meat. In fact, I love the food so much that I am cutting down on my meat consumption after I come back home. I can’t recommend enough. It is a place that you can’t help but feeling relaxed and happy.” Ali W
