Villa Daya - Yoga Retreat near Tarifa, Spain
The area of Spain, Costa de la Luz is one of the most magical places in the world. With 300 sunny days, the Mediterranean climate, beautiful coastline, protected natural zones and charming small villages inspired by the Moroccan architecture, creates the perfect holiday destination all year around. It’s where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic meet. It’s the entry to North Africa and the place where you have the nearest distance to two continents (Europe and Africa). Where so much Energy is happening a Yoga and Meditation place is a must.
We have been running Yoga & Meditation holidays as well as Surf and Yoga holidays since 2008 in Morocco. We are now extending our business and our passion to the area of Tarifa (Bolonia) in 2017.
Working for almost a decade with Yoga, Meditation and tourism we have built up a great reputation, and look forward to place all of our knowledge into our new location "Villa Daya".
Join our next yoga retreat in Villa Daya and indulge yourself in a perfectly set up location, within the protected natural zones near the atlantic ocean for Yoga, Meditation and much more.
This private residence, or as it is called these days ‘Villa Daya’ is a peaceful haven with outstanding views, tucked away in the mountains behind Tarifa. Despite its peaceful location, it’s just a few minutes’ drive away from the breathtaking beaches and Tarifa’s beautiful Old Town. The kite-surfing and other sporty activities showcase the exciting Andalusian lifestyle and all the coast has to offer.
"You must be the change you wish to see in this world" Mahatma Gandhi
Guests come to relax and recover from the negative effects of a busy, stressful life. They leave with an increased sense of harmony, joy, love and a wealth of new information that can seamlessly integrate into the individual Yoga and Pranayama practice once back at home.
For the ones who feel to explore more, there are lots of cultural places to see as Cadiz, Malaga, Tarifa or even visit Tanger in Morocco for one day. It’s all reachable within 1 hours drive. If you feel you need more action you can go kite-surfing, surfing (riding on waves), horse riding, hiking in the protected forest zone, visit the sand dunes of Bolonia, swim or climb at one of Europe’s best places.

The house is built on the ground floor to match its surrounding nature. The decor has been expertly picked and placed to merge with the environment.

Shala is the sanskrit name for home and that is how we want you to feel once you step into our Yoga space for the first time.

Granting a 360 degree view over the natural zone and the atlantic ocean you will feel at ease from day one. Start your morning with the sunrise over the mountain and the sunset into the ocean. For the days that may feel chilly or windy we also have a lovely in-house yoga space (around 40 square meters). The clean chic aesthetic of the Yoga space will give you the opportunity to free your mind and be open for your Yoga experience with us.
